A note about Chiropractic for Back Pain
In natural health and healing, we believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man's understanding. We also believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases.
In order to do so, the body needs the support of some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition. Taking these fundamental health steps will greatly magnify the effects and benefits of any of our health-promoting efforts, including the use of certain holistic remedies.
Hence, chiropractors will maneuver or adjust the spine in an attempt to increase spinal mobility, thereby improving its functioning and reducing pain or providing relief from symptoms. To summarize, the aim is to create movement in the spine, execute proper functioning, which will in turn reduce pain.
During adjustments or maneuvering, chiropractors use their hands to apply a controlled, sudden force to the joint ? pushing it beyond its normal range of motion. The joint's movement may be accompanied by a popping or cracking sound.
Chiropractors may also use massage and stretching to relax muscles that are shortened or in spasm. Many use additional treatments as well, such as ultrasound, electrical muscle stimulation and exercises.
The chiropractic for back pain treatment employed by chiropractors involves detecting possible vertebral prolapsed discs, herniated discs that are compressing the nerves or nerve roots.
Once this has been confirmed, chiropractors generally start focus on setting the spine right and relieving the pressure exerted on the nerves. This involves manipulating and maneuvering the spine to help heal the surrounding neuro-musculo-skeletal tissues and problem.
By maneuvering the spinal cord, chiropractors are, in effect, decreasing any risk of disc protrusion or prolapse, relieving the nerve or nerve root from any kind of pressure being added by the disc, and ensuring that the nerve or nerve root is not under the threat of being impinged or damaged.
Chiropractors through repeated gentle spine maneuvering techniques help in decreasing inflammation of the nerve, nerve tissue and surrounding muscles, thereby providing the patient relief from pain.
This will finally help restore normal functioning and movement of the back, spinal cord, and various other body parts.
Ultimately, chiropractic will help heal the surrounding soft tissues, and the patient will experience total relief from back pain and full range of motion and function of the back will also be restored.
This sums up the gist of using chiropractic for back pain treatment. More information on chiropractic is available in the other related chiropractic articles.
