When it comes to cancer symptom management, radiation therapy and chemotherapy leave much to be desired. But could chiropractic care provide a pain-less, hair-more way of symptom relief?
A recent article looked to shed light on the purpose of chiropractic care for cancer; more specifically, it looked to present and discuss the notion that chiropractors can be fundamental contributors to the symptom management of oncology patients.
Although it is typically an oncologist who initiates the proper treatment for a cancer patient’s main disease process, a chiropractor can also help to administer noninvasive and non-pharmacologic avenues for lowering pain symptoms and bettering function. The chiropractor can be an integral part of a cancer rehabilitation team, offering treatment that could noticeably improve a cancer patient’s quality of life– regardless of where he or she is at in the disease process. Chiropractic therapy may help those patients feeling pain from the side effects of treatment or from the disease’s ongoing pain itself. Typically, the chiropractor’s therapies of choice include spinal manipulation, soft tissue adjustments, physiotherapeutic modalities, exercise, and adequate ergonomic advice.
In conclusion, the article looked at the potential benefits of chiropractic care for cancer patients in pain management as well as quality of life. Two different case studies were found showing cancer patients’ quality of life improving in relation to chiropractic treatment.
