Chiropractic and Back Pain

A Wellness Chiropractor has many tools at their disposal to help with back pain. They can use spinal decompression therapy (SDT) and massage therapy to soothe the muscles in your back that have been overworked by prolonged sitting. They will also evaluate if there is an issue in one of your vertebrae or discs that may be causing nerve impingement and determine what type of adjustment would best suit you based on where the pain is located.

A “chiropractic adjustment” refers specifically to a manual procedure done by a chiropractor. It doesn’t mean that all treatments are spine-related. If chiropractors see any other condition during your visit that may be contributing to your back pain, they will address it accordingly.

Chiropractors offer a wide variety of treatments for back pain, including massage therapy. Chiropractic treatment has been shown to reduce lower back pain on an individual basis by providing relief through spinal manipulation, which adjusts the spine’s vertebrae. Therefore, they no longer put pressure on nerve roots and relax muscles with gentle stretches throughout the body.

The goal of a back pain chiropractor is to provide you with relief as quickly as possible by diagnosing the cause and then providing care options tailored for your specific needs. Chiropractic treatments are non-invasive procedures that do not involve drugs or surgery. They offer an excellent alternative to pain medications.

  1. Soft Tissue Therapy: Chiropractors are skilled at relieving muscle pain. It is done through manual release therapy, which involves stretching the tense muscles and applying pressure to tight spots to reduce tension. Trigger point therapy locates specific points of intense discomfort and releases them using direct pressure from a tool like a thumbtack.
  1. Manual Therapy: Joint mobilization and manipulation techniques are both utilized by chiropractors to help regain joint motion. Chiropractors can accomplish these through slow, gentle stretches of the affected joints or quick but gentle movements that stretch the joint.
  1. Exercises and Self-Management Routines: Your chiropractor can provide you with a series of at-home exercises that will help to alleviate your pain and prevent future injury. They may also be able to give tips for good posture or offer other strategies to incorporate into your day to reduce the risk of re-injury.
  1. Massage therapy provides another way to gently stretch out tight muscles while stimulating circulation around painful joints – both methods combined support chiropractor care because it allows them more options when treating patients.
