Common Chiropractic Techniques to Treat Lower Back Pain
Bad posture and injury are two of the most common causes of lower back pain. Our chiropractors offer a variety of effective treatments that can help eliminate discomfort and enhance healing.
Motion Palpation is a technique that is used to identify and correct any irregularities in the spinal column by observing its movements. Our chiropractors place their hands on various points along your lower back, from your lumbar to thoracic spine, asking you to make a series of movements. If we identify areas on the spine that are out of alignment we apply pressure to make the necessary adjustments.
Our chiropractors manipulate the spine using a special instrument while patients lies face-down on a special table. This is one of the gentlest chiropractic techniques that is used on patients with mild lower back pain. Our chiropractors also utilize a spring-loaded activator machine for optical alignment by loosening tension that is found in various vertebrae points.
To perform the Lumbar Roll technique, our chiropractors ask patients to lie on their side. They make rapid and calculated thrusts or apply pressure on the affected pars of your back. Our chiropractors will also apply a series of adjustments to help with properly aligning the vertebrae.
The Toggle Drop technique is quite similar to the Lumbar Roll. The only difference is that patients lie on a special table while flat on their stomach. Our chiropractors then cross their hands to apply a toggle drop by pressing down firmly on various points of your back. This technique is highly beneficial in improving mobility.
For lower back pain caused by displaced discs along the spine, Pelvic Blocking is a technique that can reduce discomfort. Our chiropractors place cushion wedges under the pelvis and gently nudge or moves your lower back. They leverage gravity to prompt the nerves and discs to separate, alleviating back pain or discomfort from Sciatica.
Pressure can build in your back over time. Release work is a simple technique that uses gentle amount of pressure to separate the vertebrae. Release work helps reduce the tension in the back by facilitating free movement along the spinal column.
