How Chiropractors Treat Pain

Pain reduction is often the number one reason why people seek out a chiropractor. Doctors of chiropractic understand the pain is transmitted through an intricate network, weaving through the body’s tissues. Dr. Jerome Fryer has extensive knowledge of the anatomy of pain generators as both a chiropractor and founder/chief innovation officer of Dynamic Disc Designs Corp. (which Dr. Fryer developed from the ground up). Often pain is produced with certain body movements or positions that are related to load and gravity. With his research knowledge using upright MRI, Dr. Fryer has created the models to help patients and other practitioners understand clearly the pain generators of the musculoskeletal system. The models cast light onto the anatomy in question and offer therapeutic solutions to decrease inflammation. Evaluation and treatment strategies by Dr. Jerome Fryer and other chiropractors can be seen here in a video.

Evidenced-based Approach

The anatomy of dysfunctional human joints begins with a reduction in the spacing between the bones. The narrower a joint is, the more dysfunctional it is. Narrowing of joint space width is the earliest signs of a joint that is not functioning properly. Proper alignment of the bones brings increased joint space which is at the root of Dr. Fryer’s treatment. Spinal manipulation, which increases the spacing of facet joint (which can be seen here) OR the use of manual decompression techniques to improve the height of the intervertebral discs (like flexion distraction) is at the foundation of his treatments. Using an evidenced-based approach to spinal care, Dr. Jerome Fryer (chiropractor) works hard to stay abreast of the current research to provide the best outcomes for patients. His straight forward and rational approach to care provides relief as well as optimal spinal function to improve overall health.

Chiropractic Defined

Chiropractic Definition: A health profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, and the effects of these disorders on the function of the nervous system and general health. There is an emphasis on manual treatments including spinal adjustment and other joint and soft-tissue manipulation. Chiropractic also works to stay abreast of the research and adapt techniques to evidenced-based results.  Dr. Jerome Fryer has particular interest in the areas of soft tissue regeneration. Mechanobiology is a field he follows to help ensure he is providing the best of treatment for his patients.
