When to See a Chiropractor for Back Pain
Early diagnosis and treatment for back pain and all musculoskeletal conditions is important to avoid more serious problems and prevent additional injuries. Even so-called mild back pain is best addressed promptly with a chiropractic consultation to treat back problems before they evolve into more serious problems.
Mission Chiropractic chiropractors use a variety of diagnostic methods and treatment techniques that include hands-on spinal manipulations, MRI, ultrasound, electromyography and tailored chiropractic care that can complement recommendations made by other health care providers treating your back pain problem.
Treating Back Pain Problems
Although many people treat back pain with a variety of pain medications, chiropractic therapies are aimed at eliminating the underlying cause of the problem as opposed to merely treating or masking symptoms only. Mission Chiropractic provides a range of treatments for back pain problems that include:
A fundamental technique in all chiropractic care, Mission Chiropractic chiropractors are trained and extensively experienced with offering the most advanced methods of spinal manipulative therapy as a non-invasive drug-free alternative that can heal and eliminate severe and chronic back pain problems related to a variety of conditions. Spinal manipulations are a hands-only method that may sometimes include the use of specialty instruments to apply varying degrees of pressure following a complete clinical evaluation of your condition and specific needs.
Additional Mission Chiropractic chiropractic techniques used to address back pain issues include:
- High velocity low amplitude thrust – Used to relieve pain in a specific area.
- Functional technique - Mission Chiropractic chiropractors will apply measured pressure to release a joint.
- Myofascial release – Sustained pressure is applied to relax and release tissue in the fascia, which is the thin membrane that surrounds and connects muscle.
- Articulatory – Mission Chiropractic chiropractors gently work joints through repetitive movement to release tension and increase mobility.
- Table adjustments – A milder and gentler form of spinal manipulation, this technique uses specialty tables with moveable parts to minimize the pressure and thrust of a spinal adjustment.
- Flexion distraction technique – For disc pain that radiates to the legs, this chiropractic technique stretches the spine to provide relief from pain and muscle tension. Mission Chiropractic facilities include specialized equipment designed for this purpose that uses a flexing function to increase space between discs and reposition the cushioning between them.
