Myrtle Beach Chiropractic and Pain Management

Myrtle Beach Chiropractic and Pain Management

I’ve been doing chiropractic care and treatments to patients for close to two decades in Vineland New Jersey and here in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. In that time I have seen thousands of patients and helped them find pain relief. In many cases though, I have found that it often takes a multi discipline team effort to helping the more severe cases to find that relief.

What this means is multiple doctors and multiple therapies in order to get better again.

Why You Should Get Checked Out After an Auto Accident

Why you should get checked out after an auto accident is quite key to your future health. Auto accidents are very common place and here in Socastee, Horry County in Myrtle Beach is no different. However it is incredible the number of people who have an accident, and just because it’s minor they don’t get checked out properly. Sure, they may visit the ER and when they’re told no broken bones, they assume all is good. But that is not necessarily true. When a person is involved in an accident, one of the most common results is a whiplash injury. This is the sudden movement forward and back of the head and neck. It causes small tears in muscles and if not treated properly, these tears do not heal properly, and in the long term, cause more pain and problems.

How to Get Healthy Over 40

Do you remember the days when you could eat what you wanted and not get fat? You could go and do sport every day, all day? You could do so much more and the effects on your life and health were minimal. And then one day, you hit that point in life (around 40ish) where it all begins to fall apart. Suddenly, that extra donut has an affect on your waistline. The sports you play takes you longer to recover, and where did those aches and pains come from? They weren’t there before. Sadly, it’s the same for us all, and as a 47 year old myself who is still very active with my judo here in Myrtle Beach, I have had to re-examine my life and how I go about doing things.

Manipulation Under Anesthesia for Myrtle Beach Fibromyalgia Relief

Manipulation Under Anesthesia for Myrtle Beach Fibromyalgia Relief

Manipulation Under Anesthesia for Fibormyalgia Relief

Manipulation under anesthesia is a procedure I do to help people with chronic pain conditions in their joints. It has a very high success rate and basically we put the patient to sleep for 30 minutes or so and go through a range of stretches and adjustments that normally they wouldn’t be able to cope with if they were awake due to the amount of pain they are in. Manipulation under anesthesia for fibromyalgia relief works in much the same way. We’re looking to break up adhesions and fibrous tissues while trying to improve range of motion and function. As the patient is asleep, they are in a very relaxed state which enables the treatments to happen with minimal resistance. The effect of one manipulation under anesthesia is equivalent to twelve regular therapy sessions.

Manipulation Under Anesthesia for Neck Pain – Dr Ray TV

Like with chronic low back pain sufferers, manipulation under anesthesia for neck pain sufferers is an excellent alternative to surgery. We have done many muas on necks as well as backs and see a high success rate well into the 90%s with range of motion increasing and pain decreasing. While it’s not for everyone, just a small percentage of people who do not respond well to conservative chiropractic treatments or physical therapy, it is a valued alternative to going the full surgery route.

How Opioid Addiction Starts and the Relationship to Back Pain

How opioid addiction starts is a big question and has many varied sociological and different reasons. As a Myrtle Beach chiropractor, I see it often, and from that perspective, it generally starts in a similar way. That is a patient has back pain, and uses medication to alleviate it. We have seen in the news and media lately, even the president commenting on the big impact it is having on our society, that opioid addiction is a massive problem.
