Pain Management Doctor at Zaker Chiropractic
Pain is one of the most common reasons why people seek the help of a Pain Management Doctor (M.D.). Whether it is acute pain from an injury or chronic, daily pain from a medical condition, discomfort has the potential to drastically impact someone’s quality of life. Too often, people find themselves undergoing surgical operations to help correct their pain. Unfortunately, with surgical treatments, there is no guarantee of success. Because of this, it is also important for everyone to be aware of non-surgical pain management.
Common Areas for Acute and Chronic Pain
There are numerous areas that people might be suffering from discomfort. Some of these include:
- Knee Pain: Whether it is arthritis or an acute injury, knee pain can severely impair someone’s mobility.
- Foot, Ankle, and Hip: The feet, ankles, and hips rely on the articulation of numerous bony surfaces that can quickly become sore. Rely on our team of specialists to help with this discomfort.
- Upper Body: The shoulders, elbows, hands, and wrists are also prone to injury. It is important to see a specialist for assistance with pain management.
- Back, Neck, and Spine: Pain in the back, neck, and spine can be treated by a chiropractor. As experts in spinal care, there is an endless array of treatment options for pain in this location.

Zaker Chiropractic is proud to provide a wide variety of non-surgical treatments for pain management. Some of these are:
- Chiropractic Care: This can include manual adjustments, spinal decompression, and other manipulation techniques for individuals suffering from pain.
- Medication (If needed): This is the last resort but in times where deemed medically necessary, our Physician will utilize the help of pain medications (NSAIDs).
- Rehabilitation: Whether it is a sports injury or a chronic medical condition, stretching and strengthening exercises can help relieve discomfort.
- Injections: Facet joint injections and epidural injections can help individuals better manage their discomfort. We also provide platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections to help with regeneration and healing.
