5 Common Chiropractic Techniques For Back and Neck Pain
At Thrive Wellness Center in Fayetteville, clients commonly come to us for back pain and neck pain treatment. Here are five chiropractic treatment techniques that you may experience when you come to see us.
If you have long-term back or neck pain, your chiropractor will focus on finding the problem area along your spine. Then, the necessary adjustments are made. With the Gonstead method, we make manual adjustments to realign the spinal column, which reduces inflammation and pain.
When you need immediate relief from neck and back pain, we might use the diversified technique. During this treatment, your chiropractor performs an adjustment to correct a lumbar disk herniation, which causes most issues with back and neck pain. During the treatment, you may feel a pop as the chiropractor restores your disks to improve their function.
This technique involves gentle pressure applied to the spine. This pressure gradually realigns the spine and can help reduce headaches and migraines associated with neck pain. Many clients find that the Logan technique also releases stress and tension throughout the body.
Joint pain, scoliosis, and other conditions cause back pain. During flexion-distraction treatments, your chiropractor makes adjustments to reduce your pain. The chiropractor stretches your back to align the spine and alleviate pain caused by herniated discs. Flexion-distraction is also an effective treatment for facet joint pain caused by deteriorating cartilage.
Soft Tissue Therapy
This treatment focuses on the muscles and ligaments that support your spine. The chiropractor applies pressure to the soft tissue surrounding the inflamed joints to reduce scar tissue and other waste that is impacting your athletic performance. This helps release toxic byproducts that are impeding circulation and blood flow to the area.
