If you have watched your parents and grandparents complain of back pain as they age, you know that you will likely also come to that point in your own life. As we age, loss of proper movement of the spinal joints interferes with the working of your spine and the nerves that pass through it. What is the solution to this problem? Staying active, along with low back pain treatments by a certified chiropractic doctor can help keep you moving, as pain-free as possible!
So what will a chiropractor do for lower back pain? Before starting a regimen of low back pain treatments, your chiropractor will give you a thorough examination, which includes x-rays, discuss your medical history and your lifestyle to determine the cause of your pain. A diagnosis can then be made so that the appropriate low back pain treatments can be prescribed. The goal is to free any stiff joints and remove spinal nerve irritation. They want to treat the cause, not just the symptoms.
This lower back pain treatment is safe and drug-free. The DRS Protocol™, a spinal decompression therapy approved by the FDA as a back surgery alternative, is a non-invasive method of working with the body to restore proper function and health to the whole body. By restoring the structure of the spine to its correct alignment, nerve interference is reduced or eliminated, reducing pain and allowing the body to heal naturally.
