Low Back Pain & Chiropractic
The purpose of chiropractic care is to correct spinal nerve stress (vertebral subluxations), a severe abnormality that interferes with the body's proper functions.
Most people think of chiropractic as a treatment for back and neck pain because doctors of chiropractic work on the spine. Just as medical doctors use the stomach and skin to affect the entire body, chiropractors use the spine to affect the entire body. They work on the spinal column because that's the best way to relieve spinal nerve stress.
The standard medical approach to relieve back pain varies depending on the severity. Usually muscle relaxers, pain killers, and rest are prescribed. But other procedures need to be implemented, such as physical therapy, traction, ultrasound, hot packs, cold packs, electromagnetic stimulation, and proper spinal adjustments.
MRI and X-rays are often performed to determine disc damage, subluxations, and other underlying issues.
Chiropractic care is not a mere treatment for back pain, it is our job to make the spine healthier by correcting vertebral subluxations and relieving spinal nerve stress.
This is why anyone suffering from back pain should consult a chiropractor to make sure that there is no spinal nerve stress and, to have it relieved if it is found.
This is the difference between a life with debilitating back pain and medication or a life of comfort.
