NECK & BACK PAIN
The chiropractic approach to treating low back and neck pain is to find the source of the pain and correct it, not just treat the symptoms. Both neck and low back pain often respond to the correction of vertebral positioning and muscle imbalances. This allows for the restoration of normal pain free motion.
Chiropractors use many techniques to treat muscle tension along with spinal manipulations or adjustments to precisely apply a directed force to the area of the spine with restricted motion. Gradually, the muscle work and adjustments help to restore normal range of motion, position and function of the area affected. The doctor may either use his hands or specialized tools to correct the neck and back issues you have.
Additionally, Dr. Hagy may suggest adding exercises, hot or cold compresses, electrical muscle stimulation or massage to compliment your adjustments. It may also be helpful to consider some lifestyle changes such as eating healthier and reducing stress.
It is important to seek treatment for neck and back pain as soon as possible after the onset of the pain. Waiting until the pain is unbearable is unhealthy, and may end up costing more time, stress, and money in the long run. There is no reason to suffer longer than you must, and care at Optimum Chiropractic & Fitness can help get you back to a pain free life!
