Chiropractic care can become an important part of your healing process and may contribute to your wellness. Chiropractors at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) treat and reduce 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 help 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®.
