Conditions

Low Back Pain

Manual therapies, such as those used by chiropractors, are a common treatment for lower back pain. Chiropractors can help patients achieve long term treatment through a series of spinal manipulation maintenance after their first more intensive manipulation therapy session.

Manipulation therapy is used to reduce nerve irritability and restore the back’s range of motion by applying pressure to the vertebrae.

Chiropractors also often use chiropractic mobilization to help their patients suffering from low back pain, which involves stretching muscles and joints with the goal of increasing their range of motion.

Back Pain

Back injuries can develop due to a numerous amount of different factors and circumstances. Some people are more likely to develop back pain than others. Something as simple as twisting the wrong way in bed can cause misalignment of the vertebrae while others may sustain back injuries while working, at home, or from an automotive accident or other traumatic event. Relief from back pain is one of the most common reasons why people seek chiropractic care.

Joint Disorders

Fact joints are what guide and limit the movement of the spine. These joints are located in pairs on each segment of the spinal cord except for the very top of your vertebrae. Roughly one-fifth of the twisting ability of your neck and lower back is controlled by facet joints.

A small capsule surrounds each facet joint providing a nourishing lubricant for the joint. Each joint is supplied with tiny nerve fibers that provide a painful stimulus when the joint is injured or irritated. These joints can degenerate over time due to aging or disease, which can result in numerous conditions of pain.
