Chronic Stress

Chiropractic Care for Chronic Pain

Chronic stress-related pain not only hurts; it saps your daily energy and keeps you from doing the things you most enjoy. The good news: you don’t have to live with it. At Atlantic Chiropractic Center in Portsmouth, NH, Dr. Wayne Clough uses a “whole person” approach to promote your health and put you on the road to full recovery. To Atlantic, you’re more than just a spinal cord and a set of symptoms. We take the time to understand your problem and design a program for your specific needs.


Why do I have chronic pain?

Maybe the reason is obvious. You had an automobile accident or a work-related injury. But possibly it’s not so clear. The wear and tear and the stress of daily life has built up over the years and soreness and aches have developed. Finally, you’ve reached the point where you’re always tense and pain is your constant companion. Everybody’s discomfort is a little different. You might have back pain or neck pain due to overuse and repetitive motion. Your discs may be herniated or ruptured. Perhaps there’s tingling, numbness, and weakness in the limbs due to pressure on the sciatic nerve or narrowing of the anterior canal, known as spinal stenosis. Maybe you don’t know what the problem is, only that it hurts.

How can I have tension relief?

We offer a number of chiropractic care treatments for your chronic pain. We start with a full examination, then we talk with you and work with you to find the root cause of your discomfort. We are determined to treat the underlying problem and not only the symptoms themselves. Our manipulations and adjustments move joints where they belong and restore the alignment of your spine.

Our first goal is to eliminate your pain, but we don’t stop there. It’s important to continue with adjustments until the spinal positioning is completely corrected. That’s the only way to prevent the pain from returning. Proper long-term care can support years of active and pain-free living.

In addition to spinal manipulation, we provide other treatments to address all the causes of chronic stress-related pain. These include massage therapy, physical therapy and diet counseling. Yoga in individual and group settings is also among our offerings.
