What To Do When Chiropractic Care Doesn’t Work

Liam Ray

When you are in pain, the last thing you want to hear is that the chiropractic care you are receiving isn’t working. However, if you find yourself in this situation, there are a few things you can do to get relief. First, it’s important to understand that not all pain is the same. There are different types of pain, and each responds differently to treatment.

For example, some types of pain respond well to manual manipulation, while others may require more targeted treatment. If your pain is not responding to chiropractic care, it’s important to talk to your chiropractor about other options. They may recommend a different type of treatment or suggest that you see a different healthcare provider.

In some cases, surgery may be necessary to correct the underlying problem. Whatever the case may be, don’t give up hope. Don’t get discouraged. Chiropractic care may not be the right treatment for your particular pain, but there are many other options available.

There are many effective ways to treat pain, and with patience and persistence, you will find the one that works best for you.

What To Do When Chiropractic Care Doesn’t Work

Chiropractic care is often a safe and effective treatment for many people. However, if it doesn’t work there are other solutions available to help with your pain without needing spinal manipulation or surgery.


NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) are a type of medication that can be effective for pain relief. Acetaminophen is another option. If over-the-counter options aren’t working, your doctor may prescribe a stronger medication.

Physical therapy

Physical therapy can be an effective treatment for many types of pain. A physical therapist can help you stretch and strengthen the muscles and joints that are causing your pain. They can also teach you how to properly use these muscles and joints to avoid further injury.

Massage therapy

Massage therapy is another option that can be helpful for some types of pain. Massage therapy can help to relax the muscles and promote blood flow to the area, which can reduce pain and inflammation.


Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that involves inserting thin needles into the skin at specific points. Acupuncture is thought to stimulate the body’s natural healing process and can be effective for pain relief.

It’s important to follow your doctor’s orders and take any medication they’ve prescribed. If you’re not sure how to take medication or have questions about side effects, ask your pharmacist or doctor. It’s also important to keep track of how well the medication is working. If you’re not seeing any improvement, be sure to tell your doctor. They may need to adjust the dose or try a different medication.

If your pain is not responding to chiropractic care, talk to your doctor about other options that may be available to you. Don’t give up hope. With persistence, you will find a treatment that works for you.
