How a Chiropractor Treats Back Pain
When you seek chiropractic care for back pain, several techniques and tools may come into play. Chiropractors commonly treat health problems related to the back and spine. This includes injuries and illnesses related to muscles, bones, nerves, and joints, especially in the spinal cord. Spinal manipulation involves manual adjustments to your spine. It's the most common type of chiropractic care but far from the only one available.
Chiropractors are licensed to care for patients with back pain and they focus their attention on the nervous system as well as the spinal structure. At Magnolia Comfort Chiropractic, we focus on the structural and biomechanical aspects of your spine to find the source of the problem. Then, we develop a treatment recommendation for one or more approaches to address your back pain. In many cases, chiropractors can restore structural integrity to your spine. This may reduce pressure on sensitive nerve tissue and help you improve your spinal health.
Core Chiropractic Treatment
Core chiropractic care typically involves treating lower and upper back pain through manual manipulation. There are two types of core chiropractic treatment, manual manipulation, and mobilization.
During manual manipulation, a trained chiropractor uses a high-velocity thrust to return the abnormal vertebra to the correct position. The result is typically improved functionality, reduced nerve irritability, and restoration of a fuller range of motion. This is the treatment most people think of when they think of chiropractic care.
Mobilization is another form of spinal manipulation. Low-velocity manipulation, stretching and movement of the joints and muscles gradually increase the range of motion in the impacted areas. These treatments can help with back pain by reducing tension, and inflammation and increasing circulation around the pinched nerves that caused pain to begin with.
