At Healing Hands Chiropractic, we use the following techniques to treat lower back pain:
• Spinal adjustment. Spinal adjustment is a technique that is effective for treating subluxations, slipped disc, and sciatica and muscle strain. With this technique, we use adjustments to the vertebrae to reduce pressure on the spinal cord. At Healing Hands Chiropractic, we use a variety of different spinal adjustment techniques to treat our patients, including Diversified Technique, Activator Method, Cox Flexion-Distraction, Gonstead, and Craniosacral Technique.
• Soft tissue techniques. Soft tissue techniques help heal soft tissues of the body, relieving muscle pain and inflammation. We offer our patients a variety of services that can help heal the soft tissues, including Myofascial Release Technique, Active Release Technique, and Graston Technique.
• Nutrition counseling. Obesity can cause lower back pain. At Healing Hands Chiropractic, we help patients avoid unnecessary weight gain and also help them manage their current weight by teaching patients how to eat a healthy, balanced diet. Nutrition counseling also helps ensure that patients have the energy they need to exercise and stay active, which can also help them manage their weight.
• Functional medicine. Functional medicine is an in-depth holistic technique that we use to discover the cause of back pain and then treat the symptoms at their source
