People who experience rip pain often visit an emergency room believing that something serious is taking place. If you are involved in some accident that causes a fracture, it’s reasonable to believe that emergency medicine is necessary. However, if you sustain a mild sprain, it is much more disconcerting despite symptoms that suggest the onset of a heart attack.
Diagnosing The Cause of Rib Pain
To provide treatment for these patients that helps support positive long-term health, our Atlanta Chiropractors need to perform a complete examination to determine the source of your pain, as well as identify other underlying spinal conditions that may exist. Before treatment can begin, your Chiropractor will use your examination to rule out other similar conditions that may contribute to your pain. Potential conditions include:
- Persistent cough
- Fractured rib
- Rheumatoid arthritis
Atlanta Chiropractic Treatment For Rib Pain
Once your Chiropractor determines the source of your pain, they will then follow through with a thorough review of the joints and muscles. Using a variety of common techniques, your Chiropractor will look to alleviate your symptoms and reduce muscle spasm using controlled force to correct misalignments.
Chiropractic Treatment is a safe alternative to traditional medicine that often relies on pain killers. Although prescription medications provide pain relief, they are temporary solutions that are not capable of treating your condition. Our treatment solutions help stimulate the body’s natural ability to heal itself, allowing us to provide immediate pain relief without exposing you to potential adverse side effects.
