Chiropractic care can become an important part of your healing process and can contribute to your wellness. Chiropractors at Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) treat and alleviate bone, muscle or joint pain without the use of drugs or surgical treatment. These licensed clinicians use a non-invasive, manual procedure to manipulate the joints of the body, particularly the spine.
Chiropractic treatment can relieve pain and stiffness in your joints and muscles caused or intensified by surgery, chemotherapy or radiation therapy. A chiropractic adjustment helps to properly align the spine and other joints and restore nerve function. It can also help alleviate a variety of symptoms, including:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Sciatic nerve pain
- Painful walking
- Neuropathy (pain or numbness in the hands and feet)
Chiropractic care can also reduce stress and increase mobility, flexibility, strength and function, as well as help improve quality of life and overall well-being. Caregivers can also receive chiropractic care at CTCA.
The chiropractic team at Southwestern
Chiropractors John W. Sibley, DC and Shannon Subramaniam, DC both provide chiropractic care for patients visiting CTCA at Southwestern Regional Medical Center (Southwestern).
Dr. Sibley joined Southwestern’s chiropractic team in January 2009. “CTCA provides technology in the form of the best medical care combined with the best naturopathic medicine, chiropractic medicine, acupuncture, etc.—everything works together," he says. "And, you can’t walk into the hospital without feeling the love.”
Dr. Subramaniam joined the team at Southwestern on a part-time basis in November 2010. She is onsite Wednesday and Saturday mornings for patient appointments.
"What I enjoy most about working at Cancer Treatment Centers of America is the people—our patients, leadership team and stakeholders," she says. "The atmosphere of hope, compassion and excellence that is cultivated by everyone here is what makes me most happy to be a part of this team.”
