When you need a San Francisco chiropractor who views you as a person rather than just a patient, reach out to Dr. Swanson. He’ll use a holistic approach to care, expensive experience, and personal consultation to create a custom set of recommendations designed to improve your overall quality of life.
Chiropractic Pain Management
Pain, whether acute or chronic, can be debilitating. Experiencing discomfort isn’t just physically taxing; it can quickly sap your emotional reserves and disrupt your professional life while also having a long-lasting impact on your friends and family. When we are injured, we are often given prescriptions for pain pills or referred for invasive treatments such as surgery, but chiropractic care offers a noninvasive alternative.
More and more people are heading to Google to search for “chiropractor near me” in an attempt to discover new ways to manage their pain, and Dr. Swanson delivers. Chiropractic care can mitigate pain caused by disc tears, skeletal misalignment, muscle and ligament strain, tension headaches, migraines, athletic injuries, illness, whiplash, nerve impingement, bone spurs and so much more.
Through regular manual manipulations, strategic adjustments and other supportive modalities, Dr. Swanson helps patients just like you reclaim their mobility and find relief from their symptoms and the root cause of ongoing pain.
Headaches may be a fact of life that affect most people at one time or another, but that doesn’t mean you have to resign yourself to experiencing them forever.
Most people know that whiplash is an injury affecting the neck, so it’s obvious that neck pain is a common symptom of whiplash.
At Scott Swanson Chiropractic, we offer various chiropractic services that promote whole body wellness, not only treatment of an aching back.

Contrary to depictions on TV or in the movies, chiropractors don’t just crack backs. They are highly-trained specialists in the biomechanical and structural misalignments of the spine, which are responsible for a wide array of musculoskeletal and neurological problems. Chiropractors remedy these issues by using their hands to manipulate soft tissue and make spinal adjustments and to restore and maintain proper alignment in the body. The term “chiropractic” comes from the Greek words cheir (hand) and praxis (practice). In addition to performing manual manipulations and adjustments, Dr. Swanson uses several other modalities to provide non-invasive, drug-free relief from musculoskeletal and neurological issues. These include Kinesio-Taping, traction therapy, trigger-point therapy, Activator Therapy, Graston Technique, and ergonomic and nutritional advice.
There are many benefits to seeing a chiropractor. Chiropractic care is natural and doesn’t entail the potential side effects that can accompany prescription medications or the extended downtime involved with surgery. In addition, chiropractic treatments address the underlying problem, not just the symptoms.
A personal reference from a friend or your primary care physician is always a good place to start. Next, confirm that the referral is a graduate of a college that’s accredited by the Council on Chiropractic Education. After that, inquire about the chiropractor’s experience within the particular issue you are seeking treatment for. Once these parameters are established, choose someone whom you feel comfortable with. Make sure that he or she listens to your concerns and is willing to answer your questions.
