Main Treatment Options

The treatment plan depends on your condition type and extent of the pain and can include any combination of therapies, chiropractic solutions, medications, and physical exercise. Below are several of our treatment techniques in detail.

Massage

Massages are great for reducing the levels of pain in patients afflicted with chronic bone, back, and leg pain as well as headaches. Done correctly, massages trigger a relaxation response from the body’s nervous system and results in relaxed muscles and higher levels of serotonin in the brain.

Weight Loss

There’s a correlation between being overweight and suffering from complications of the spine. People with a BMI of 25-29.9 are considered overweight, while those with a BMI greater than 30 are classified as being obese. In either case, weight loss through low-impact exercise (water therapy, walking, etc.) helps alleviate back pain by increasing blood flow to the affected areas.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture treatments involve applying needles, pressure, and heat to the skin where you feel pain. It helps facilitate the body’s healing mechanisms and improve sleep quality.

Chiropractic Services

Looking for immediate back pain relief without getting invasive surgery? We have advanced chiropractic services at exclusively our Long Beach, CA location. We also offer massage therapy to provide further joint and muscle pain relief for you.

Activities Included in the Vortex Pain Management Program

As part of our program, we also have our patients participate in these activities to maximize their overall health while they’re receiving specific treatments for their pain.

E

Exercise

Exercise has been shown to be much more effective at treating chronic pain rather than resorting to resting in bed. Ask your doctor before beginning any exercise regimen if you have a chronic pain condition, and we’ll work with you to develop an individualized exercise program for you.

E

Yoga

Yoga improves your concentration and helps you develop greater strength in your muscles too. It works through a combination of stretching and deep breathing and results in greater blood and nutrient flow to the body’s muscles and soft tissues.

E

Eating Healthier

Anti-inflammatory diets including fresh vegetables and fruits help patients better manage their chronic pain levels. Foods like spinach, kale, nuts, and lean meats (turkey, chicken, etc.) have organic compounds that fight inflammation in the body leading to greater pain relief.

E

Meditation

Meditation focuses on building up a patient’s ability to reduce the intensity of pain signals to the brain. It provides many analgesic benefits and results in pain reduction even after the meditation session with enough time and consistency.

Prescription Medications We Use

In addition to all the comprehensive treatments we provide all our patients, we also use prescription medication to help alleviate pain and any underlying issues. Here’s a list of medications:

E

Opioids

E

Muscle relaxers

E

Antidepressants

E

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications
