Chiropractic – a Supportive Therapy for Cancer

Chiropractic – a Supportive Therapy for Cancer by Nachmias Chiropractic  When the unfortunate illness of cancer strikes and you are experiencing bodily pain and headaches from your cancer treatments, chiropractic care will give you relief.

Chiropractic will not only remove your pain symptoms and make your body more mobile, but it will also strengthen the immune system. You will need a fully functional immune system to have a good chance to heal from your cancer illness.

Benefits of Chiropractic Care
Cancer and treatments for cancer can cause stress on the musculoskeletal system. Some cancer patients experience peripheral neuropathy, aches and pains in the neck and/or back, muscle tension, headaches, or difficulty walking. Chiropractic care can help to reduce stress and increase mobility, flexibility, strength and function, as well as help improve overall well-being.

For patients undergoing cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy and/or radiation, chiropractic adjustments can help alleviate a variety of symptoms, including:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Headaches
