If you’re living with chronic back pain, Dr. Michal Nesnick at Nesnick Total Health in Woodstock, GA, provides various natural methods to help you find relief.
Chiropractic Methods for Back Pain
Back pain can come from a variety of causes. And often, more than one of those causes is present. For example, you might have a misalignment as well as a herniated disc and muscle tension. And the causes can vary between people.
As such, there is no one approach to pain relief, as treatment should be built around the individual and their needs. Below, Dr. Nesnick and the team at Nesnick Total Health in Woodstock, GA, share just a few methods that might be utilized in a chiropractic treatment plan for back pain.
In many cases, pain in the back can be traced back to misalignment somewhere along the spinal column. Adjustments are a method through which the chiropractor uses their hands, handheld instruments, or a combination of the two to restore proper alignment, addressing pain at the source.
Decompression therapy is a gentle method for stretching the spine and relieving compression. It is utilized to treat herniated discs, pinched nerves, sciatica symptoms, and more.
When something is amiss in the back, the muscles and other soft tissues have to work harder to hold your spine upright. This can lead to a great deal of tension. Additionally, repetitive motion, heavy lifting, poor posture, and many other situations can cause tension, sprains, and strains. Massage therapy can help relieve tension, stimulate blood flow, release endorphins, and more to help your body heal and naturally feel relief.
Therapeutic exercises are targeted movements meant to correct an issue. This can be anything from stretching tense areas to building up weakened muscles. Such movements are integral for not only relieving current pain but also for preventing the same injury or pain in the future.
Cryotherapy is another tool Dr. Nesnick has to help with back pain. Cryotherapy helps to relieve pain, reduce inflammation and relax muscles.
