Strand Spine Institute Can Help With Back Pain
Back pain is such a common problem that health experts note that most people will experience it at some time in their adult lives. Low back pain can result from repetitive work tasks, sports activities, strains from moving or overuse while doing home repair or remodeling. These injuries can result in intermittent or even chronic back pain. In some cases, diseases such as osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia can contribute to back pain. Good diagnosis and treatment can help you to return to full function, without pain. Your Pawleys Island chiropractor can offer a number of techniques to relieve discomfort and improve strength and flexibility in your spinal column.
Understanding Back Pain
The back is a complex system of bones, muscles, tendon, ligaments, and nerves that function together to provide smooth, flexible movement. When any part of this system is injured or disrupted, the result can be pain that occurs either intermittently or on a chronic basis. Returning the back and spine to normal function can require a significant period of treatment and therapy. Your Pawleys Island chiropractor has extensive training on how the spinal column functions and can provide effective treatment to return these structures to normal.
Chiropractic Techniques to Relieve Back Discomfort
We can help to relieve back pain, using a variety of specialized chiropractic methods. A spinal adjustment can re-align the vertebrae in the spinal column, which relieves pressure on discs that cushion the bones and nerves. Spinal decompression is a method of stretching the spine in order to separate compressed bones and discs, relieving pressure on nerves that lead to pain. We also use K-laser therapy to relieve muscle spasms and stiffness. Corrective exercises help to strengthen the muscles of the back for greater flexibility and range of motion. Nutritional supplements can reduce inflammation and improve tissue healing. We can also provide ergonomic advice to arrange your work and home environments correctly to prevent further injury.
