Do you have back pain? Welcome to the club. Millions of Americans are members. But really, who wants to be in this club? Even if you’ve been experiencing back pain for several years, a chiropractor offer treatment that may finally provide relief, so you can drop your club membership! Read on to learn more about chiropractic methods of therapyfor back pain that is caused for a variety of reasons.
Why Do You Have Back Pain?
Some people can recall the exact moment their back pain began. Perhaps it was when they lifted a heavy box, or when they were in a car accident that caused an injury.
Back pain may also be the result of a ruptured or bulging disk. When this happens, there is pressure on the nerve and this can be very painful. Sciatica begins in the lower back, but the pain is often felt down one or both legs. Arthritis and osteoporosis may also cause back pain.
Whatever the reason, there is a chiropractic method that can alleviate your discomfort and get you back in the swing of life.
How Is Back Pain Treated?
Your chiropractor will suggest a treatment plan that may include spinal adjustments as well as rehabilitative and stretching exercises and other therapies to help relieve your pain. The idea is to restore your mobility and normal function so you can participate in daily activities without needing to take pain relievers and other medications.
What is Spinal Decompression?
If a chiropractor diagnoses a bulging disk, then spinal decompression may be recommended. Non-surgical spinal decompression uses motorized traction in order to stretch the spine and relieve back pain. This gentle stretching takes pressure off of spinal disks, so that they can retract and no longer press on nerves and other structures of the spine. In addition, spinal decompression allows nutrients such as water and oxygen to enter disks so they can heal.
Relieving Back Pain with Class IV K-Laser Therapy
If back pain is the result of injury to back muscles, ligaments, joint, disks or other surfaces surrounding your spine, then Class IV K-Laser Therapy may be helpful. This type of therapy is designed to increase cellular function and circulation, reduce inflammation, stimulate nutrient passage through cell membranes and reduce swelling, stiffness, pain and muscle spasms.
Don’t let 2019 be another year of unrelenting back pain. Contact a chiropractor and schedule an appointment to see what therapies there are to provide the relief you need.
