Non-Surgical Pain Relief

Non-surgical pain relief is what chiropractic care is all about. Treating the whole person allows the body to heal itself. Dr. Deirdre Clark of Gilreath Center in Elkin, NC offers comprehensive treatments to give you the pain relief you need. We also serve Surrey, Wilkes, and Yadkin, NC. 

Dr. Clark uses a variety of evaluation processes to help her determine the cause of the pain you are feeling. She will use posture analysis, gait assessment, and muscle assessment. She offers complementary therapies that can treat the causes of the pain. 

Chiropractic manipulation

Chiropractic manipulation is the go-to therapy for most chiropractors. Chiropractors treat the whole person since all the parts work together and get their instructions from the brain. If the spine is out of alignment, the messages can't get through the way they are meant to, making it hard to function at an optimal level. When one part of the body is in pain, it affects the others. By getting the vertebrae back into alignment, the body can use its innate ability to heal itself. This is just one non-surgical pain relief option. 


Dr. Clark is a trained and credentialed hypnotherapist. She uses her skill to help to bring together mind, body, and soul. Hypnotherapy helps to relieve any built-up stress or tension you may be suffering from in addition to your pain. You will leave her office with a feeling of well-being and peace.  

CBD pain cream

CBD pain cream is an analgesic that is applied to the area where the pain is located. It can help with chronic or acute joint or muscle pain. It is safe and very effective. 

Ultrasound therapy

Ultrasound therapy uses sound to produce heat and healing in the soft tissues. It decreases stiffness, pain, and inflammation. The heat produced deep in the tissue prompts healing at the cellular level. 

Moist heat

When you are in pain, what feels better than heat on your sore joints or muscles? It also helps to increase circulation to the injured area to promote healing. 

Therapeutic exercise

Therapeutic exercise often involves stretching, which helps with balance and mobility. Your chiropractor will recommend exercises that are personalized to the areas that need to be strengthened or stretched. It allows your condition to get better while you are home between office visits.
