Pain is the body’s way of telling you that something is wrong, be it an injury or a sickness. Normally, pain goes away on its own after the body heals. However, some pain lasts even long after the initial cause has been taken care of. If the discomfort doesn’t go away after 3 to 6 months, it is considered chronic pain, and it can take quite a toll on your emotional and physical well-being. You should never force yourself to live with chronic pain; instead, call Spinatomy Spine & Disc Centers so that Dr. Rozenberg can help you find lasting relief and stop the discomfort from interfering with your everyday life.

Types of Chronic Pain
At Spinatomy Spine & Disc Centers, we treat the root cause of pain while also addressing any discomfort that you might be experiencing. Chronic pain can manifest in a variety of areas for many different reasons. The treatment you receive will depend on the location, root cause, and severity of your pain. Dr. Rozenberg is happy to help patients who are suffering from any of the following chronic pain conditions.
Back Pain: Chronic back pain can be age related, but it can also be the result of an injury. Common causes include arthritis, a herniated or bulging disc, and spinal stenosis (narrowing of the spinal canal). Back pain has been linked to anxiety, depression, and overall reduced quality of life, so it should never be ignored for too long.
Knee Pain: Knee pain can be a result of arthritis, a torn ligament, dislocation, or various other conditions. The pain is often accompanied by swelling or stiffness in the joints. If the issue goes unaddressed for too long, you may find that you are unable to fully straighten your knee, so it’s important to seek treatment before this happens.
Shoulder Pain: The shoulder is actually multiple joints that work with various tendons and muscles to provide a full range of motion for the arm. Tendon inflammation, instability, arthritis, and bone fractures all commonly result in shoulder pain.
Neck Pain: If you routinely let your head slump forward or spend too much time working at your desk without changing position, you can eventually end up experiencing chronic neck pain. This condition can also be caused by a fall or a serious accident dislocating the muscles and ligaments in the neck. Neck pain that doesn’t go away after a week should always be treated as soon as possible.
Technology Driven Treatments for Pain
Modern technology combined with chiropractic techniques makes it possible to treat chronic pain in various forms without the need for surgery. Here are a few examples of technology that we use at Spinatomy to help patients find relief:
Matrix Electroanalgesia System: Electroanalgesia is the computer-controlled process of applying controlled electrical stimulation to the peripheral nerves. This stops them from sending pain signals to the brain, meaning you’ll no longer experience discomfort in that area. It also boosts local blood circulation, which accelerates the healing process. Our practice uses the Matrix Electroanalgesia system to help patients overcome pain in various areas.
Spinal Decompression: Nonsurgical spinal decompression involves gently stretching out the spine, relieving some of the pressure that has been placed on spinal discs and nerves in order to relieve back pain and other forms of discomfort. You’ll lie down a table that’s designed so that the lower half can be moved by a computer; this portion will slide back and forth, relaxing the spine.
MLS Laser Therapy: A laser composed of a special kind of light is directed at the affected area. The cells in the tendons, ligaments, and muscles are stimulated by this light, allowing them to heal themselves faster than they normally would. This is an effective approach for relieving pain as well as reversing damage.
