Chiropractic Back Pain Therapies
In addition to manual spinal manipulations, there are several therapies designed to reduce inflamation and treat back pain.
Cold Laser & Physical Therapy
Cold Laser and physical therapy treatments are used as therapeutic options in treating back pain. Cold Laser treatments help to reduce inflamation and promote the healing process. Physical therapies are used to stretch and strengthen muscle groups which will support proper alignment of the spine.
Active massage therapy and stretching helps to reduce muscle inflamation while strenghtening and elongating muscles. The Graston technique is a soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to treat problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves.
Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulators (TENS). TENS units feature electrodes placed over the painful area of the back. The patient alerts the theapist how to control the intensity of electrical stimulation based on their level of comfort. The muscle stimulation helps block the transmission of pain signals along the nerves and releases the body’s natural painkillers, endorphins.
This was my 1st time at a chiro and it was just for a stiff neck. X-rays and an adjustment and I am hooked. The staff is so friendly!!! I feel great and thought I would stop coming. I had an ATV accident 2 weeks ago and started back to twice weekly visits and I am feeling wonderful again! Added bonus is Cooper and now baby Goose (dogs).
