Many people suffer from severe or chronic back, neck, or joint pain. They often turn to painkillers, family doctors, and even surgeons before they consider the services of a chiropractor. We know chiropractic, physiotherapy and massage can be very helpful in relieving back and neck pain, but we also know that these treatments don’t always help and for the difficult cases we have established a state-of-the-art rehab clinic full of high tech equipment designed to treat the worst spinal conditions and chronic pain in Calgary.
At Alberta Back and Neck Rehab & Sports Injuries Clinic, we understand the hesitance many of our patients feel before they see us for the first time. We also hear our patients tell us they wish they had come to our pain clinic sooner about their chronic pain, because they finally got the relief they were looking for.
Our chiropractic doctors can help aid you in pain management. Calgary patients often tell us they are very satisfied with the care they receive at the pain clinic. We have two chiropractors on staff, Dr. Drew Oliphant and Dr. Brian Reive. They both have years of experience in chiropractic care including using state-of-the-art technology and hands-on techniques to help patients feel lasting relief from pain. Dr. Oliphant, the clinic director, is also a certified specialist in orthopedics – muscle and joint injury management.
We treat patients who suffer from sciatica, chronic, or severe lower back, upper back, and neck pain, disc degeneration, bulges and herniations, and even patients recovering from unsuccessful spinal surgery.
Many of our patients are suffering from motor vehicle accidents, sports injuries, and other trauma. Many have suffered with chronic pain for years without relief. We pride ourselves in the relief we provide with our use of the latest in chiropractic rehab technology, including:
All of our procedures are non-invasive, safe, and designed to provide relief by stimulating healing of the injured tissue. Along with high-tech treatments, we provide manipulation, mobilization, and muscle therapies. In addition to chiropractic treatment, we also offer massage therapy. The massage therapists are experienced in dealing with a number of different ailments and injuries. Our doctors emphasize improving your body’s strength to properly support and align your bones and muscles.
The first step in treating a contact sport injury is always the same: consult a doctor or chiropractor. Athletes often fail to report their injuries, which can cause avoidable pain and stress on the body. Sometimes, consulting a doctor means immediately going to a hospital.
We at Alberta Back and Neck & Sports Injuries specialize in treating sports injuries. We begin by treating acute injuries, by reducing inflammation and pain. Then we restore normal functions, while rebuilding strength. Finally, we work on returning patients back to a play-ready state.
Contact us as soon as you detect the onset of pain; it can become worse the longer you spend ignoring it. Learn more about our sports injury treatment procedures, about the shoulder pain, hip pain, knee pain, whiplash, and spinal clinic services we offer in Calgary.
