Most people don’t now what a chiropractor does. And if they do, they tend to recoil at the thought of being “manipulated.” But when they realize that many of their ailments — including back pain — can be helped by a good chiropractor, there is reason for visiting one to be evaluated.
Sometimes all that’s needed for back pain is a good crack! It’s a scary thought, but it often helps — according to the skilled professionals at the office of Authentic Health Solutions. Back pain, especially in the lower back, is one of the most common health complaints, and 8 out of 10 people suffer this ailment at some point during their lives. Thankfully, for many, back pain goes away on its own after a few days or weeks. But the pain becomes chronic for others, and lasts for months or years. If you are suffering from long-lasting effects of back pain, treatment at our office will put you on the road to much-needed relief.
Yes, you’ll need to be manipulated! Treatment with spinal manipulation is done on a padded, adjustable table. It consists of applying a controlled force to a joint in the spine. This technique is used with success to relive pressure on a patient’s joints, for reducing inflammation, and improving nerve function. It is also used for conditions such as neck, shoulder, and headache pain. In the hands of trained and licensed practitioners, spinal manipulation is usually safe. Ice and heat therapy may also be used, as well as electric stimulation and traction devices.
