Chiropractic Spine Pain Treatment
Your spine is a foundational aspect of your body. It is involved in every move you make, and every time you sit, stand, walk, or do anything else throughout your day. When it’s in pain, it not only interferes with your life but also causes other types of pain, including headaches. In the guide below, Dr. Rozich, Dr. Schrickel, and the team at Schrickel Health & Wellness Center in Wintersville, OH, share some of the most effective and completely natural spine pain treatments.
Typically, spine pain comes from a misalignment. The bones of the spine normally stack neatly, supported and surrounded by muscles, discs, nerves, ligaments, and tendons. When one of the bones becomes misaligned, it puts unnecessary stress and strain on the other components. Adjustments restore alignment, which eliminates the source of pain.
Misalignment, injuries, and negative habits such as poor posture often lead to too much pressure on the spinal discs. This can cause the disc to protrude from its normal place. Sometimes, the outer casing of the disc develops a tear that the inner filling spills through. This filling often lands on a nerve or muscle, causing a great deal of pain.
Spinal decompression therapy gently stretches the spine, pulling the disc and its filling back into the proper place. The stretching motion also creates space for all spinal column components and relieves unnecessary pressure.
The back muscles go through a great deal simply supporting your movements throughout the day. Their work increases when there is an injury, as the muscles overcompensate to hold the spine in place. This leads to tension, muscle pain, and more.
Electrical muscle stimulation causes tiny contractions in the muscles. This process releases muscle spasms, relieves tension, reduces inflammation, and stimulates the release of endorphins.
Ultrasound therapy sends small sound waves into the joints and soft tissues. These waves create heat, which helps reduce any inflammation. They can also help decrease muscle spasms, loosen up stiff muscles, and break up scar tissue.
Chiropractors often recommend specific stretching and strengthening exercises to target problem areas. Depending on the cause of your pain, these exercises might be used to relieve tension, build up muscles, and restore range of motion.
