Anybody who has experienced back pain knows that they will do just about anything to relieve their discomfort and fortunately, there are many options available for patients suffering from back ailments.
If you have been experiencing lower back pain, you should schedule an appointment with a chiropractor. At Ignite, we want to get to the root cause of your health issues to ensure that we fully understand your condition as well as any limitations that you may be having. After understanding the root cause of your issues, we will go over a care plan with you that includes chiropractic adjustments.
Chiropractic adjustments are also called spinal or chiropractic manipulation and are a conventional technique that chiropractors use to treat lower back pain. At Ignite, we use an adjustment that moves vertebrae that are not moving properly or have abnormal movement and does so without any popping, cracking or twisting. These changes to your spine can reduce the tension on your nervous system and help your body start to heal from the inside-out.
With Torque Release Technique, our adjustments look different than what you may be used to with chiropractic care. We use an instrument, called the Integrator, to make very specific adjustments to your spine and nervous system. The integrator fires with a similar force that our hands would, but does it more consistently and specifically. This leads to a very gentle adjustment that is done without any popping, cracking or twisting while you are in a comfortable position.
Most patients feel reduced pain or tension levels in their back and spinal column immediately following treatment. When patients feel pain, it is usually associated with muscle pain and when appropriately treated, the effects of muscle pain can be reduced in a matter of hours. Just remember that in order to get these problems to stay away and keep your body healing optimally, it typically takes time and repetition.
Several studies have shown that chiropractic patients experience mild to moderate pain relief following an adjustment. In fact, chiropractors have been shown to be as effective as many other methods of pain relief for the back, such as sleeping on a firm mattress, taking pain medication, or applying heat therapies.
Chiropractic adjustments can be a significant and effective form of treatment for lower back pain. While there may be many causes of a sore back, chiropractic care can help to diagnose these issues and offer some possible remedies. If your chiropractor can fix your pain, the adjustments are usually quick office visits that can be completed during a lunch break.
Additionally, the side effects of a chiropractic adjustment are much smaller than alternative medications. Chiropractic adjustments also cost less than some of the other alternative treatment options, especially if your insurance considers it a covered option. If you are experiencing back pain, it is a good idea to schedule an appointment with your chiropractor as soon as possible since receiving rapid care can help reduce the amount of time it takes to return to a pain-free lifestyle.
