Choose the Right Spinal Treatment for You
According to research, up to 80% of people experience back pain. So, if you're reading this, there's a good chance you or someone you know deals with the discomfort and inconvenience of a sore back.
There are many possible causes of back pain, but it often results from wear and tear on the spinal discs. These discs act as cushions between the vertebrae, and over time, they can become damaged and degenerative. This deterioration can lead to several problems, including bulging discs, herniated discs, sciatica, weakness, and muscle spasms.
Many treatment options are available for back pain management, but with so many choices, it can be tough to know which is right for you. So we'll break down some of the most common spinal treatments and help you decide which one is best for your particular situation.
Chiropractic Spinal Adjustments
One of the most popular and effective treatment options for acute or chronic back pain is chiropractic adjustments. Our chiropractor uses their hands to manipulate the spine, correcting misalignments, restoring movement, and relieving pressure on the spinal discs and nerves. These adjustments can significantly reduce pain and improve function.
Our chiropractors often combine spinal adjustments with other therapies, such as massage, physical therapy or nutritional support. These combined treatment methods work together to give our patients the best possible outcome.
Physical therapy is another standard spinal treatment option for back pain. Our doctors and assistants can teach you the best ways to stretch and strengthen the muscles that support your spine while avoiding anything that is too strenuous that could cause further injury. This expertise is extremely valuable to help manage chronic pain, prevent future injuries and provide long-term pain relief.
Physical therapy at Arlington Chiropractic Clinic includes specific use of pain relieving modalities such as electrical muscle stimulation, ultrasound, mechanical spinal traction, intersegmental traction, and massage therapy. A personalized treatment plan will be created based on the needs of each patient.
