Low Back Pain Treatment with Chiropractic
Lower back pain has many causes, from lifting something wrong to a herniated disk. When you have pain, you want to find a low back pain treatment that doesn't simply mask the pain. Because chiropractic treatment adjusts the spine, it relieves the pain instead of disguising it like medication.
Why Chiropractic Care for Low Back Pain Treatment?
Low back pain can occur for many reasons. Whether or not your job is a physically demanding one, and even if you sit at a desk all day, you are affecting the alignment of your spine.
This can cause pain (temporary and chronic pain).
For people who do have those physically demanding jobs that require a lot of movement, back pain is even more common.
If you work in a factory or a big box store where you spend a lot of time bending, standing, and lifting, you increase your risk of lower back pain. It's likely you've noticed the pain the day after a particularly busy shift stocking shelves.
How Does Chiropractic Care Help in Low Back Pain Treatment?
There are 3 basic things chiropractors do when you visit them for an adjustment. Each of these helps with the different pains and ailments you're having throughout your entire body and not just your lower back pain.
When your Coconut Creek chiropractor uses mobilization, he is using light manipulations that require certain movements of joints and muscles which work to increase your range of motion. He may move your arms, your legs, your neck, or other parts of your body.
2. Spinal Manipulation
Spinal manipulation includes the higher impact adjustments done by a chiropractor. This is the part where you hear more of that “cracking” you expect from a chiropractor. The high-velocity thrusts of these adjustments align your spine and the vertebra that are out of place.
3. Spinal Decompression
Spinal decompression, which uses traction to help stretch the spine gently, works to relieve back pain by alleviating the pain of worn spinal joints and herniated disks. Studies show that this type of chiropractic treatment really does help decrease back pain.
