Botti Chiropractic & Wellness | Best Treatment for Back Pain
Chiropractic care is a health care system that aims to treat disorders by inspiring harmony and reconciliation between the body’s structure (primarily that of the spine) and its function. It is basically a non-surgical treatment of the disorders of the musculoskeletal system and/or the nervous system. Usually, a chiropractor employs a hands-on therapy called spinal manipulation or chiropractic adjustment that is centered around spinal manipulation and treatment of surrounding internal structures. According to Dr. Valentino Botti of Botti Chiropractic & Wellness, such manual therapies have been found to be quite effective for the treatment of back pain and headaches among other conditions. What more could one ask for when the risk of experiencing complications after a chiropractic adjustment of the back is close to negligible?
Back pain is perhaps the most common medical condition that is faced by almost everyone at least once during their lifetime. The cause of back pain often remains unknown. Chiropractic care is a drug-free system of treatment that does not suppress or annihilate back pain altogether merely by the use of certain medicines, hence its popularity in treating back pain. Today, we will share how chiropractic care can successfully treat back pain – and why chiropractic care is the best treatment for back pain.
- Spinal manipulation – Commonly known as a chiropractic adjustment, spinal manipulation is a manual manipulation of the abnormal vertebra. In spinal manipulation, the abnormal vertebra is given a high-velocity, short lever arm thrust. The goal of spinal manipulation is to improve functionality, reduce nerve irritability, and restore range of motion in the back. Such a thrust is known to treat back pain, especially in the lower back.
- Alignment – The chiropractic system of treatment suggests that the alignment of the spine is related to the overall health and wellbeing of the individual. The incorporation of this tenet of the chiropractic system into the treatment provides pain management for back patients. A chiropractor uses forceful pressure on key parts of the patient’s back or other parts of his or her body to realign the spine and manage pain. The pressure may either be abrupt or low in force. The chiropractor may deliver it using his or her hands or with the help of a specially designed instrument. Such realignment of the spine is also known to reduce pressure on the central nervous system, thereby providing relief from headaches too.
- Mobilization – In chiropractic care, mobilization refers to a low-velocity manipulation, movement, and stretch of the muscles and joints. The goal of mobilization is to increase the range of motion within those areas.
- Active Care – In the treatment of low back pain with chiropractic care, it is imperative on the part of the chiropractor to prevent chronicity. For this, the chiropractor emphatically employs active care, for example, patient-driven care such as exercise, activity modification, ergonomic modifications, etc.
