Finding the right position for your back can reduce the stress your back feels throughout the night and can help you wake up feeling refreshed. The majority of people experience low back pain at some point during their lives—and it can be a miserable experience. The doctor may either use their hands or specialized tools to apply a quick thrust or slower pressure to the misaligned joint. You can sprain ligaments, strain muscles, rupture disks, and irritate joints, all of which can lead to back pain. Combined chiropractic interventions slightly improved pain and disability in the short term and pain in the medium term for acute and subacute low-back pain. We work with most major providers, so being covered is easy. A study published in April 2017 in the Journal of the American Medical Association supported this, finding that based on the latest research, spinal manipulation can modestly reduce a person’s lower back pain.
People who lay on their sides benefit from supporting the space between their neck and the bed, or from a pillow placed between the legs. On the whole, the evidence suggests that seeing a chiropractor can reduce pain levels and increase function for people with chronic low back pain. Low back problems are more common in people who are in poor physical condition and those with jobs that include heavy lifting, long periods of sitting, standing or lots of bending. With today’s growing emphasis on quality care, clinical outcomes and cost effectiveness, spinal manipulation is receiving increased attention. Together, we can take control of your spinal health.
