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 in 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 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.

A Closer Look with Chiropractic

Chiropractic is the art and science in the diagnosis and treatment of neuromusculoskeletal tissues. If you, or someone you know, are having difficulty with movement of the low back, neck, mid back, ribs, hips, sacroiliac joints, feet, knees, shoulders or arms, and in particular have symptoms of numbness or tingling, you should consider seeing a chiropractor for a spinal evaluation. Chiropractors have a minimum of 2419 hours of Chiropractic University training in subjects of: Anatomy/Embryology, Physiology, Pathology, Chemistry/Biochemistry, Microbiology, Diagnosis, Neurology, Psychology, Obstetrics, Radiology, and Orthopedics. Dr. Jerome Fryer graduated with honours from the University of Western States in 1999 and currently practices in Nanaimo, BC.
