Can Back Pain Be Relieved Without Surgery?
Many people who live with back pain believe that they either have to deal with it or have surgery to relieve it – there is no in-between. Fortunately for the millions of Americans that suffer from back pain, there are several ways to relieve it without surgery.
Non-Invasive Treatment Options
When you visit Nesnick Total Health for back pain relief, Dr. Nesnick will create a treatment plan according to your needs and condition. It may include several of the following non-invasive treatment options and more.
Chiropractic adjustments are what is often referred to as “popping your back.” These adjustments are carried out through a variety of spinal manipulation techniques that help realign the spine, relieve pressure from nerves and muscles, and encourage natural healing.
Spinal decompression therapy is a non-invasive treatment used to relieve pain and pressure in the back and neck. Patients who suffer from herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, and chronic neck or back pain find spinal decompression to be a relaxing way to achieve pain relief.
Physical therapy uses a combination of stretching and strengthening exercises for the back. It helps to relieve pain and improve mobility.
Massage therapy optimizes the results of chiropractic treatment. It helps by releasing tension in the muscles, thereby taking undue pressure off of spinal joints. It also helps to increase the flow of blood, oxygen, and nutrients to the back.
Cryotherapy is also an effective back pain treatment. It encourages the release of the body’s natural pain relievers, reduces inflammation, and relaxes the muscles.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation
Electrical muscle stimulation or EMS also promotes the release of natural pain killers – otherwise known as endorphins – by causing the muscles to contract. It also helps to relieve tension and muscle spasms, promotes the flow of nutrients to the back, and encourages healing.
Lower-level laser therapy uses wavelengths of light to target damaged connective tissue in the back. The light helps by relieving inflammation and pain in the targeted area.
