Back pain is one of the most common—and debilitating—ailments people face. And finding the right pain relief is no easy thing.  Many people often ask the question, “Can chiropractors help my back pain?” According to a 2015 National Institute of Health report, an estimated 27 million Americans are evaluated and treated by a chiropractor each year, mostly for back pain relief. The hallmark therapy of chiropractic care is spinal manipulation to alleviate back pain.

Chiropractic treatment is based on the assumption that back pain is caused by the misalignment of the spine. Spinal manipulation involves physical pushing, pulling, and methodical repositioning of the head, shoulders, neck, back, or hips.  This reduces the pressure on nerves and discs in the spine to relieve the pain.

Although the practice of spinal manipulation was once considered a fringe medical treatment for back pain, it is now being adopted by more medical doctors as a viable treatment option. The American College of Physicians and the American Pain Society in their patient care guidelines included spinal manipulation as one of several options for practitioners to consider when ordinary, uncomplicated back pain didn't improve with self-care.

Simply stated, the term “spinal decompression” describes the relief of pressure on pinched nerves of the spinal column. Spinal decompression is used to treat conditions that result in chronic back pain, such as bulging discs, disc herniation, sciatica and spinal stenosis. Relief from pain can be achieved both surgically and non-surgically so be sure to ask your chiropractor if you would be a candidate for spinal decompression therapy, an alternative to invasive surgery.
