Pain Management

A plethora of pain pills and a stint in the surgery room aren’t always necessary to relieve chronic or acute pain conditions.

Located in Crestview, FL, we work with patients throughout the surrounding areas in helping them return to the activities they love by offering the latest in techniques and technologies, based on current research.

Chiropractic Care

Many pain conditions actually stem from misalignment or structural interference in the spine.  Chiropractic care involves both manual and instrument-assisted adjustments to allow for proper function and motion in the spine.  Chiropractic allows for optimal spine and nervous system health and can be used to treat migraines, neck, back and joint pain, as well as countless other issues.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a treatment method that dates back to ancient China. It involves inserting needles into strategic areas of the body in order to relieve pain. In traditional Chinese medicine, it was thought that acupuncture balanced the energy flow through the pathways in the body. The insertion of needles was thought to rebalance energy flow. Western practitioners view acupuncture as a way to stimulate nerves, connective tissue, and muscles. The stimulation is thought to increase natural sources of pain relief in the body.

We use multiple techniques, including dry needling, trigger point therapy, and minimally invasive whole-body techniques. This holistic method is used to treat pain in many areas of the body and is a go-to for those struggling with pain.

What to Expect During Acupuncture

During an acupuncture treatment, you may be asked to change into a gown. Acupuncture points are not always directly in the area of the pain you are experiencing, so the practitioner will need to reach points from head to toe. The thin needles are inserted to various depths into the appropriate points on the body. There is little to no discomfort with the needles. The practitioner may move or twirl the needles, apply heat or cold, or use mild electrical impulses to enhance the effects. The needles will usually remain in place for about 20-30 minutes as you relax. Most patients do not even feel needle removal.

Posture Correction

Dr. Rawson is certified in Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP), which involves a structural and functional analysis of the spine and overall posture. Through the use of adjustments, traction, and rehabilitative exercises, we work with patients to correct abnormalities in their spinal alignment. Structural correction not only improves posture, but it helps to relieve pain, in addition to many other benefits.

Physical Therapy

We offer both active and passive rehabilitation using multiple therapeutic techniques for strengthening muscles and reducing pain. These techniques include vibration, intersegmental traction, therapeutic ultrasound, electronic muscle stimulation and exercise plans customized to meet your unique needs.

Class IV Laser Therapy

Our clinic utilizes Photobiomodulation Therapy (PBMT), also known as Class IV laser therapy.  This FDA approved therapy is non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical pain treatment method uses laser photons to target damaged tissue, resulting in decreased inflammation, bruising and edema, all while stimulating tissue repair and relieving pain.

Spinal Decompression

Non-surgical spinal decompression helps to facilitate healing for painful issues like bulging or compressed discs, pinched nerves and neuropathy by using the latest evidence based traction therapy.  These therapy sessions can be extremely beneficial for patients who want to relieve pain in the back, neck, arms and legs.

Myofascial Release

Myofascial release is a soft-tissue technique that is used to reduce pain and relieve restricted mobility due to muscle, ligament, fascia, tendon, and nerve injuries. It involves applying gentle, strategic pressure to specific myofascial trigger points.

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) uses instruments to provide soft tissue therapy and rehabilitation.  This aggressive technique works to decrease pain and increase range of motion.  This technique can be extremely beneficial for athletes, regardless of age. 

Nutrition

We offer unique nutritional services, including diet analysis, supplements and oils.
