Neck pain and back pain can really slow you down. When you want to resolve pain quickly and get back to normal life, we can help at Chiropractic Wellness Center. Our chiropractic care clinic provides services in Newcastle, WA, and the surrounding areas. Let's look at a few of the techniques we offer.

Massage Therapy

Not every form of back pain is caused by problems with the spine. Many instances of back and neck pain can be traced to overused, overworked muscles. Massage therapy can help to relieve tension in these muscles and relieve pain quickly. An added bonus is that massage therapy is also great for relieving stress as well. A doctor will often recommend this for stress management.

Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression is a type of chiropractic treatment that helps heal damaged spinal discs. Between each vertebra of the spine, there is a soft gel-like disc. These discs are supposed to function as a cushion between the vertebrae. If a disc shifts out of place, it can cause pain. Spinal decompression will gently stretch the spine to relieve any pressure that is between the vertebrae so that the disc can shift back into place and heal.

Hot/Cold Therapy

When used correctly, hot and cold compresses can help resolve pain issues. Our chiropractor is trained to understand how to best apply heat and cold compresses for you. This is a great, all-natural pain relief method.

Spinal Adjustment 

Spinal adjustment is a foundational type of care in our office. Spinal adjustments can help to relieve neck and back pain. This type of treatment is also recommended as a regular addition to your health and wellness routine too. Keeping the spine in proper alignment is essential to overall good health.

Nutritional Counseling

You may not be aware, but what you eat can affect your pain levels. Our team can help to advise you on what foods could contribute to pain and inflammation.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. Maxwell and her team are really great. I love that she takes the time to really figure out what is going on with me and genuinely CARES about my health and well-being. I have been going to her for years. I had been hurting SO badly with chronic pain due to illness and debilitating migraines and she got me in right away, and adjusted me gently since it had been a while; even this gentle (but thorough) adjustment had me feeling 100times better than I've been for weeks. I can't brag enough. I have always felt so good after her adjustments. I'll be making the drive from Mukilteo to Newcastle just to continue to receive treatment from her and Dr Stephanie every week."
