Back treatments may often include a spinal alignment, also referred to as a spinal adjustment, in order to realign the spine. During this particular treatment, our chiropractor uses manual force to move the discs and vertebrae in the spine. When they line up properly, it takes pressure off of the disc, so it's able to heal more effectively. A spinal alignment will also allow blood to flow more optimally, which means the injured area receives the nutrients it needs to heal.
Another technique we might utilize for your back pain is deep tissue laser therapy. Using light energy, we target the area of your back where you're experiencing pain. The light energy reaches the soft tissue in the body and lessens both pain and inflammation. The laser therapy triggers the blood to flow more effectively to the area, which means more nutrients reach the region. The increase in nutrients allows the injury to heal better. We might also use exercise therapy. Our chiropractors and staff at Ashton Rehabilitation Clinic will coach you through exercises that reduce pain and help with the recovery process, in particular, by increasing flexion.
