Low back pain can affect every aspect of your life – from the quality of your sleep to your physical activity during the day.
Relief seems to elude many. They feel they simply need to “grin and bear it” or that their only treatment option is surgery.
This doesn’t have to be your fate, though, because your chiropractor can provide safe, non-invasive low back pain treatment options.
Low Back Pain Treatment from Your Duluth Chiropractic Team
One of the reasons low back pain treatment from a Duluth chiropractor is a good option for those suffering from pain is the variety of treatment alternatives available.
1. Spinal Adjustments
Spinal misalignment can lead to muscle tension and strain. Spinal adjustments help restore proper skeletal alignment, thereby reducing pain.
2. Massage Therapy
Sometimes, tense muscles need a little help to relax. Massage therapy is an excellent complement to spinal adjustments, relaxing the muscles so that the adjustment is easier on the patient. Even if you don’t want to invest in a massage, the chiropractors at Atlas Chiropractic & Wellness Center can get muscles to relax with a G5 massage machine. You get a relaxing mini-massage during your adjustment appointment.
3. Lifestyle Changes
Many Americans don’t move enough – they’re stuck at desks during working hours and just want to veg out in front of the TV at night. Your muscles were made to move, though. If you don’t get enough movement, they can get so tight that it causes pain. Your Duluth chiropractor can recommend stretches and a daily exercise routine that will loosen your muscles and ease your pain.
Are You a Good Candidate for Chiropractic Care?
While most chiropractic adjustments are minor, that doesn’t mean that everyone is a good candidate for them. Some contraindications for chiropractic care include cancer, fractures/dislocations, certain types of arthritis, osteoporosis, and infection.
Drs. K. Anthony Merati and Marta Maria Trujillo are careful with the treatment they provide to their patients. That’s one reason why they offer a variety of options besides spinal adjustments.
Not only do these options protect people who aren’t good candidates for adjustments, but they also provide a well-rounded approach to care. You can be confident knowing that your Duluth chiropractors will find the best treatment combination for your needs.
