Back Pain Relief
Back pain can make walking and even sitting difficult. If you are suffering from chronic back pain, it can make daily activities difficult. Rather than trying to push through the pain, you should schedule an appointment with Lifetime Health and Wellness. Our chiropractor can use a variety of treatment methods to provide back pain relief.
In many cases, your back pain can be due to the fact that your body is misaligned. Your chiropractor can use spinal manipulation to realign your spine, helping to relieve the pain.
Heat and Cold Therapy
Heat cold therapy can be very effective in treating back pain. First, your chiropractor will put an ice pack on your back to numb the area for 10 to 15 minutes. They will then switch to a heating pad or a heating wrap. This will restore blood flow to the area, which promotes faster healing.
Ultrasound therapy can be very useful in treating your back pain. The ultrasound waves provide a form of deep heat therapy. This therapy is helpful in reducing your back pain, muscle spasms, and stiffness. It will also increase the blood flow to the area to help speed up the healing process.
Cold Laser Therapy
This is a laser procedure that doesn't use heat, the way that lasers typically work. This treatment is used to decrease swelling and inflammation. It can also help with the pain and improve your blood circulation.
TENS therapy involves the use of a TENS unit. This device has electrodes that are placed around the painful area. It has a power source that sends electrical stimulation to the area. TENS therapy is effective in blocking the transmission of pain signals around the affected area. It also helps to reduce endorphins, which is your body's natural painkiller.
Massage can reduce swelling and inflammation. It can also help with pain while promoting faster healing. It is a very common treatment method for chiropractors.
