Chiropractic Treatments For Our Back Pain Patients
Chiropractic Adjustments: Manual manipulation helps to relieve back pain by taking the unwanted pressure off the sensitive neurological tissue.
It will also help restore blood flow, increase range of motion, reduce muscle tension, and create a series of chemical reactions in the body that will act as a natural painkiller.
When this treatment is coupled with adequate hydration, the body will quickly begin the healing process.
Pelvic Stabilization Drills: If a patient has a leg-length deficiency, flat feet or subtalar instability, our Duluth Chiropractors in may prescribe a small heel lift for the shoe to help the short leg stabilize the pelvis and correct the walking gait.
By changing the pattern of the walking motion to be more anatomically friendly, your body will react by eliminating its tension holding patterns and your Back Pain may be reduced dramatically.
Traction and Decompression: A traction massage is when the patient is lying face up as a system of rollers move around the back, massaging and stretching the muscles that are causing the back pain.
Our Chiropractors may use other traction devices to stretch the spine and decompress the discs.
These therapies work well for patients suffering from Degenerative Disc Disease, Sciatica, Bulging Discs, or Herniated Discs.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation Therapy: Many patients benefit from this therapy when they are experiencing cramping or muscle spasms.
Electrodes are set on the skin, and they send light electrical pulses to different locations of the body with the purpose of reducing inflammation in the muscle or joint.
This therapy helps settle muscle spasms and relieve symptoms of Back Pain.
Ergonomics Training: During the course of your Back Pain treatment, your Doctor may recommend some modifications at your place of work or a change in the way you are sleeping.
