According to Spine Health, the objective of chiropractic treatment is to reduce the subluxation with a goal of increasing range of motion, reducing nerve irritability and improving function.
Chiropractic treatment can be beneficial when it comes to treating a variety of back-related health issues. Some of the more common pain disorders or issues that we can help treat include herniated discs, fibromyalgia and sciatica. Chiropractic treatment can be helpful when treating a variety of health issues by minimizing pain and increasing mobility.
Since no patient is exactly alike, we will customize the chiropractic treatment plan. This plan will address the specific pain and/or debilitating issues that someone may be experiencing.
Non-surgical back pain treatment
One of the reasons why patients who are experiencing issues with their health want to know more about their chiropractic treatment options is to avoid surgery. As with any surgery, back surgery is an invasive procedure that comes with a number of risks. This fact has many people looking into alternative medicine options. Chiropractic treatment is often the first alternative recommendation.
Herniated disc treatment
The treatment of herniated discs, also known as bulging discs, are going to be different for every patient as symptoms can range from very mild and irritating to quite extreme and painful. Since a herniated disc can limit someone’s ability to perform their everyday functions without being in some form of pain, seeing a chiropractor for herniated disc treatment options is the best option. Chiropractic treatment can help people with a herniated disc and often uses spinal adjustments in order to manipulate the area. This treatment can lead to lowering the herniated disc symptoms.
Sciatica pain treatment
Sciatica nerve pain is often felt in the lower back, the buttocks and in one or both legs. The pain related to a sciatica diagnosis can come and go at any time and can be minimal or severe. Because there are a few disorders that can cause sciatica a chiropractor will first want to understand why a patient was diagnosed so that they can accordingly offer the best chiropractic treatment method to fix the sciatica problem.
Fibromyalgia is a disorder that can cause various levels of musculoskeletal pain. Chiropractic treatment is available for those suffering from fibromyalgia and tends to include making sure the spine is in its proper alignment. When someone’s spinal alignment is not in its correct position it can lead to their experiencing a lot of irritation as well as pressure on the nerves, which can really get in the way of their being able to live a happy and productive life.
A chiropractor will perform a spinal adjustment, aka spinal manipulation, with the goal of manipulating the vertebrae so that the patient is able to once again move without experiencing any pain. Because there are a few different chiropractic techniques available choosing a chiropractor who specializes in treating the issue at hand is recommended. Spinal adjustments can produce minor side effects that tend to only show up in the first few appointments, i.e. headaches, soreness.
According to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health, spinal adjustments and spinal manipulation are core treatments when chiropractic services are necessary.
Chiropractic treatment options include using spinal decompression therapy, which is often utilized to help relieve any pressure that is currently being placed on the spine. This alternative medicine treatment is a pain-free option that uses modern technology to carefully and gently separate the vertebrae. Spinal decompression ultimately relieves the pressure that is causing pain. We often utilize spinal decompression therapy for patients who are experiencing general low back pain, herniated discs and sciatica nerve pain.
Chiropractic treatments are an alternative medicine choice. Since alternative medicine focuses on treating the whole person more patients are beginning to look into their alternative choices, especially when it comes to their seeking non-surgical back pain treatment options. Some of the additional alternative medicine approaches chiropractic treatments utilize when treating patients with health issues include heat and ice, electrical stimulation, rehabilitation exercises, relaxation techniques and educating patients on how to make positive lifestyle choices.
