How Chiropractic Care Can Help With Lower Back Pain

Lower back pain is a common condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It can be caused by a range of factors, including poor posture, muscle strain, herniated discs, and arthritis.
While there are various treatment options available, chiropractic care has become an increasingly popular option for managing and relieving low back pain.

What is Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic care is a form of alternative medicine that focuses on the musculoskeletal system, particularly the spine, to treat and prevent mechanical disorders. Chiropractors use manual adjustments and manipulations to realign the spine and other joints in the body. These adjustments can help to reduce pain, improve mobility, and promote healing.

Chiropractic Care For Lower Back Pain

Benefits of chiropractic care include:

1. Reducing Inflammation: Chiropractic adjustments can help to reduce inflammation in the affected area, which can help to relieve pain and discomfort.

2. Improving Mobility: Chiropractic care can help to improve joint function and mobility, allowing patients to move more freely and comfortably.

3. Promoting Healing: By improving circulation and reducing inflammation, chiropractic care can help to promote the natural healing process, allowing the body to recover from injury or strain.

4. Preventing Recurrence: Chiropractic care can help to strengthen the muscles and joints in the affected area, reducing the risk of future injuries or strain.

Chiropractic Techniques That Can Be Used to Treat Lower Back Pain

1. Diversified Technique: This is the most commonly used technique in chiropractic care. It involves a manual adjustment of the spine or joints, where the chiropractor applies a quick and controlled thrust to the affected area to realign the bones and joints.

2. Gonstead Technique: This technique is similar to the diversified technique, but it is more focused and precise. The chiropractor uses X-rays and a special instrument called a “Nervoscope” to identify misalignments and subluxations in the spine. The chiropractor then applies a specific adjustment to correct the problem.

3. Activator Technique: This technique uses a handheld instrument called an “Activator” to deliver a controlled and precise adjustment to the affected area. The Activator technique is beneficial for patients who are uncomfortable with manual adjustments or have a medical condition that makes manual adjustments risky.

Chiropractic care is a safe and effective treatment option for individuals experiencing low back pain. By addressing the underlying musculoskeletal issues that may be contributing to the pain and discomfort, chiropractic care can help to alleviate pain, improve mobility, and promote healing.

How Do Our Patients Feel About Us
  • "I’ve been coming here for a few months to help with my back pain. They have helped my physical health but also my mental health. It’s so nice to do some scheduled self care each week. The doctors and front desk staff are all so sweet and so welcoming. When you come in you can always expect a big smile and hello from Ann."

  • "First and foremost Dr John is the best human! I’ve gone through numerous different chiropractor practices and could not speak more highly about the service and care that I’ve received from Advanced Spinal Care. They’ve made treatment affordable and comprehensive. I’ve also had difficulty with being adjusted in a beneficial way in the past, but I don’t feel that way going to Advanced Spinal Care. No matter which team member I see I know I’m in good hands and I leave feeling better than before (which is huge for me). I definitely recommend their services for chiropractic care and physical therapy."
