The Impact of Pain on Daily Life

Back pain impacts the quality of life. Approximately 83 million workdays are missed due to back pain, the lead cause of work absence. In addition to back pain, neck pain also impacts many people, where 10%-20% of adults report neck pain at any given time.

How Our Chiropractor Relieves Pain 

For anyone living with back and neck pain, you can try the health services of a chiropractor. A chiropractor uses manual spinal manipulation to reduce pain associated with injuries, arthritis, or poor posture, without medication or surgery. Once the chiropractor does an assessment with exams, an treatment plan is created for your needs.

Here are 5 techniques that are used in chiropractic treatment for back pain:

Spinal Manipulation: The main treatment of chiropractic treatment is spinal manual manipulation to reduce pain, without medication or surgery. The chiropractor uses forceful pressure on the main areas for realignment, which could be manual or with an instrument.

Physical Activity: Exercises help improve range of motion.

Massage: Manipulating soft tissues increases blood flow and relaxes tight muscles.

Nutritional Counseling: Health supplements and diet changes can also reduce pain.

Electric Stimulation: A gentle, low-level electric charge is applied to heal injured tissue.

The treatment for neck pain is similar with manipulation of the cervical spine, or neck. Studies have shown that after two months of weekly chiropractic spinal adjustments, patients saw a reduction in pain.
