Chiropractic care may help you feel better as you undergo treatment for stomach cancer. Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) offers this natural, non-invasive therapy to patients, as well as their caregivers.
If you are interested in making chiropractic care part of your stomach cancer treatment at CTCA, let us know. We can schedule a consultation for you to meet with one of our licensed chiropractors. He or she will review your medical records, most recent diagnostic tests and medical history. In addition, your chiropractor will receive clinical clearance from your doctors at CTCA to ensure it is safe to integrate chiropractic techniques into your treatment plan.
During your consultation, your chiropractor will evaluate your spine and posture, talk with you about symptoms you are experiencing, and help you develop a chiropractic treatment plan.
To administer chiropractic treatment, your chiropractor will apply gentle pressure and use his or her hands to make small adjustments to realign your spine, knees, ankles, hands, feet or other joints. This helps to:
- Relieve pain and stiffness in joints and muscles caused or intensified by surgery, chemotherapy or radiation therapy
- Restore nerve function (e.g., peripheral neuropathy)
- Diminish nausea
- Alleviate back and neck pain
- Improve mobility and range of motion
- Ease anxiety, tension and/or headaches
In addition to using chiropractic techniques, your doctor may also use other therapeutic, such as massage, traction, stretching and electrical stimulation of the muscles. He or she may also recommend exercises that help correct bone, muscle and joint problems.
After you have completed treatment for stomach cancer at one of our hospitals, your chiropractor can arrange for you to continue to receive chiropractic care near your home.
