More and more people are starting to realize that chiropractic care can be a great way to manage and relieve low back pain. Routine chiropractic therapy provides patients with a low back pain treatment that's a safe alternative to surgery or pain medications, both prescription or over-the-counter.
Chiropractic therapy is a gentle, non-invasive, non-addictive treatment, also referred to as chiropractic adjustments. These adjustments reduce joint restrictions or misalignments in the spine and other joints in the body which will, in turn, reduce inflammation and improve the function of both the affected joint and nervous system. By increasing joint mobility and improving your nervous system function and spinal health, your body has the ability to better manage the symptoms caused by chronic low back pain.
Below are some of the benefits of chiropractic therapy for patients with low back pain:
- Reduces pain and discomfort
- Decreases inflammation
- Improves range of motion
- Improves flexibility
- Increases muscle tone and strength
To determine if chiropractic therapy is right for your condition, you will be given a thorough examination, and if necessary, diagnostic imaging such as an x-ray or MRI. Based on the results of those tests and following a consultation, you will be prescribed a course of chiropractic therapy that is designed just for you. Your chiropractor may also choose to co-treat your low back pain with other healthcare professionals, such as massage therapists, physical therapists or other primary care physicians.
Through the years, it has been proven over and over again that chiropractic therapy not only helps with back pain and spinal issues, but it also enhances one’s overall health conditions.
Chiropractic therapy addresses the whole body--enhancing the patients’ ability to think more clearly, move without pain, and perform its intended functions. It allows the body to heal itself naturally--drug-free! Don’t miss out on an effective and natural treatment option for pain.
