Chiropractic care may be an important part of your healing process and may contribute to your wellness. Chiropractors at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) work with patients to 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 or instrument techniques to manipulate the joints of the body, particularly the spine.
Chiropractic treatment may help relieve pain and stiffness in your joints and muscles caused or intensified by surgery, chemotherapy or radiation therapy. A chiropractic adjustment is designed to help to properly align the spine and other joints and restore nerve function. It may also help alleviate a variety of symptoms, including:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Sciatic nerve pain
- Painful and difficulty walking
- Neuropathy (pain or numbness in the hands and feet)
Chiropractic care may also reduce stress and increase flexibility, strength and function, restore mobility and help improve quality of life and overall well-being. Caregivers may also receive chiropractic care at CTCA®.
The chiropractic team at Southwestern
Chiropractors Sean Riley, DC, and Shawnie Lamborn, DC, provide chiropractic care for patients visiting CTCA at Southwestern Regional Medical Center (Southwestern).
Dr. Riley, practicing since 2000, arrived at Southwestern in April 2013. He has a special interest in golf-specific training and rehabilitation, and management of neck and lower back pain. "My goal is to provide a quality standard of chiropractic care to my patients using quality treatment techniques and management strategies," he says.
Dr. Lamborn studied exercise science at the University of Kansas before becoming a doctor of chiropractic medicine, and has served as a team physician for various sports teams. She joined CTCA in July 2014. "Each patient is on a journey, and I am honored to be a part of it," she says.
