Non-surgical back pain treatment

Non-surgical back pain treatment is a specialty of chiropractic care services. We are able to use their hands to manipulate the spine with this popular treatment option for patients who are experiencing back pain.

With non-surgical back pain, we use proven spinal manipulation methods to help correct specific back problems. This manipulation also helps to relieve a patient's pain.

Non-surgical back pain treatment can help treat:

  • Herniated discs and bulging discs
  • Arthritis
  • Sciatica
  • Pinched nerves

Non-surgical neck pain treatment

We also offer patients non-surgical neck pain treatment. There are many reasons to receive and suffer from neck pain. While injuries from an accident are a common cause of neck pain, there are times where turning the neck the wrong way causes trauma. Some of the more common reasons also include bad posture, trauma and poor nutrition.

With this type of treatment, we use cervical manipulation to correct a patient’s neck problems. We complete the neck adjustments by hand and work to improve the mobility of the neck, restoring its range of motion. Non-surgical neck pain treatment can also help treat headaches (including migraines).

Spinal adjustment

A spinal adjustment, also known as spinal manipulation, can help to correct a patient's structural alignment so they are able to physically function without being in pain. While back pain can vary, many people suffer from pain all day and are unable to move properly because of it.

Far too often, people attempt to self-medicate with painkillers from the drug store that only mask the pain for a few hours. We can provide spinal adjustment as an effective and non-surgical option. During spinal adjustment, we will apply pressure to specific areas with a goal of moving the spine back into its original and correct position.

Contrary to popular belief, these non-surgical options are not just a form of massage you can get at any spa. We have the skills and knowledge to target specific areas that need the treatment with the proper techniques. A spinal adjustment can help treat:

  • Back and neck pain
  • Headaches
  • Trauma injuries
  • Arthritis, fibromyalgia

Car accident injury treatment

If you are in a car accident, seek immediate medical attention. After ensuring that you do not have any life-threatening injuries but feel sore in certain areas, give us a call. You can damage your neck or back and not realize it right away. The pain may start out as minor soreness that slowly gets worse over time until you seek professional treatment.

Chiropractic care involves diagnosing as well as treating those injuries with long-term solutions. We focus on repairing the injury while at the same time decreasing any pain you may be experiencing. Therefore, we will perform the necessary spinal adjustments to correct any misalignments from the accident. The goal is to restore full mobility. After a car accident, people may suffer from:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain, including whiplash
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Soft tissue injuries

Injury rehabilitation

Injury rehabilitation is a common reason for seeking chiropractic care. Whether it is due to a car accident, a workplace accident or falling down, chiropractic care can help with injury rehabilitation. A benefit of non-surgical treatment is that you will not have to spend time away from work and other responsibilities to recover and can continue your regular routine for the most part.

Before we can begin treatment, we will need to fully evaluate the patient's injuries. Once we identify the cause of the pain and determine which treatment technique will be effective, we will begin treatment. Injury rehabilitation can help treat:

  • Car accident injuries
  • Workplace related injuries
  • Injury sustained from falling down

Herniated disc treatment

If you suffer from herniated discs, then treatment is crucial as soon as possible. While surgery can be effective and necessary in certain situations, there are multiple risks with it. Fortunately, we offer a non-surgical treatment option known as herniated disc treatment.

A herniated disc can occur anywhere on the spine, with most occurring in the lower back area. It is important to try all non-surgical options prior to going through with the surgery. For herniated disc treatment, we will use manual decompression, also known as spinal decompression, in order to perform the spinal adjustments that can help reduce the severity of herniated discs. We may also use stretching techniques to isolate and better treat the affected area of the spine.

Herniated disc treatment can help treat:

  • Herniated/bulging discs
  • Back and neck pain
  • Leg and arm pain
  • Spine tenderness
  • Overall stiffness

Spinal decompression

Spinal decompression can treat patients who have a herniated disc or other chiropractic health issues. Spinal decompression is an effective and common non-surgical alternative that helps to reduce subsequent spine pressure. Several causes for this type of pain include poor posture, repetitive stress or a traumatic injury.

The spine is the superhighway of the body. It connects everything together. We will use specific chiropractic techniques to carefully stretch the spine with a goal of removing any existing pressure. Pressure on the spine prevents water, oxygen and fluids from flowing through the spine, making it necessary to relieve this pressure for ultimate spine health.

Spinal decompression can help treat:

  • Herniated discs
  • Bulging discs
  • Injured spinal nerve roots
  • Back and neck pain
