When you need effective pain relief for discomfort in your back or other joints, Whitehead Chiropractic can help. Our chiropractor in Austin, TX, Dr. Wendee Whitehead offers noninvasive treatment for injuries and damage resulting from wear and tear or underlying illnesses. Our treatments include chiropractic adjustments, corrective exercises and other types of care to help you recover and get back to your normal activities. These treatments do not put you at risk of developing other health problems or serious complications.

Safe and Non-surgical Chiropractic Care for Pain Relief

When you have a back injury or an injury to another joint, you might deal with ongoing pain that does not improve with medication or another form of conventional treatment. Although some doctors recommend surgery for pain that does not ease up, this comes with potentially serious risks and no guarantee that the procedure will be successful. At Whitehead Chiropractic, our chiropractic care is a non-surgical approach to pain relief that does not have these risks. Instead, you can enjoy relief from your symptoms while also lowering your risk of having persistent pain or pain that comes back.

Effective Care for Back Pain, Neck Pain and More

When you come to Whitehead Chiropractic for treatment, you can expect to receive effective chiropractic care for back pain, neck pain, headaches and pain in other parts of your body. Dr. Whitehead performs spinal adjustments to help ease pressure on nerves, promote the body’s natural healing process and align spinal discs to prevent pain from coming back. Keeping your spine in alignment offers ongoing relief from pain, stiffness and other symptoms that can stop you from being able to enjoy your favorite activities or do simple, everyday tasks. Dr. Whitehead uses different approaches to chiropractic care based on the results of your evaluation. These might include the Gonstead approach, McKenzie exercises or Grostic Orthospinology.

Dr. Whitehead might also recommend other forms of treatment to go along with spinal adjustments, such as corrective exercises, nutritional counseling and lifestyle advice. Corrective exercises help make your muscles stronger and improve the flexibility in your joints, which reduces your risk of having additional injuries or pain. Nutritional counseling helps you learn more about proper nutrition to help you lose excess weight that can contribute to chronic pain. Lifestyle advice for pain relief involves making healthy choices throughout your day, so you can reduce your risk of dealing with persistent pain.

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness?
