Conservative Treatment for Back and Neck Pain

Conservative Treatment for Back and Neck Pain

ACA logo
"Inadequate pain management coupled with the epidemic of prescription opioid overuse and abuse has taken a severe toll on the lives of tens of thousands of people in the United States...Beyond the risks of addiction and overdose, prescription drugs that numb pain may convince a patient that a musculoskeletal condition is less severe than it is or that it has healed. This misunderstanding can lead to overexertion and a delay in the healing process…or even permanent injury. Chiropractic and other conservative (non-drug) approaches to pain management can be an important first line of defense against pain and addiction caused by the overuse of prescription opioid pain medications."

Spinal Decompression Therapy

Spinal Decompression Therapy

webmdlogo

"Nonsurgical spinal decompression is a type of motorized traction that may help relieve back pain. Spinal decompression works by gently stretching the spine. That changes the force and position of the spine. This change takes pressure off the spinal disks, which are gel-like cushions between the bones in your spine, by creating negative pressure in the disc. As a result, bulging or herniated disks may retract, taking pressure off nerves and other structures in your spine. This in turn, helps promote movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the disks so they can heal."

Low Level Laser Therapy For Shoulder Pain

Low Level Laser Therapy For Shoulder Pain

chiropractic economics

"Low level laser therapy (LLLT) has been shown to have anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects. There are also no known side effects of the treatment, making it an effective option for relieving pain in a wide variety of situations.
For some injuries and conditions, exercise is the best treatment, but what about the patients who are in too much pain to exercise? If LLLT can decrease the pain so that patients can exercise, it can accelerate the pace of healing."

Conservative Care for Back and Neck Pain

Conservative Back Treatment Maximizes Quality and Affordability

conservativebacktreatment

"When a back pain patient’s first visit is with a physical therapist or chiropractor whose
clinical decision-making is aligned with current clinical evidence, the severity-adjusted total
episode cost, including all treatment provided by any type of provider in any setting, is
approximately 30 percent lower than the overall average total episode cost for treatment
of back pain. Today, only 11 percent of back pain patients’ initial visit for treatment is with a
physical therapist or chiropractor whose treatment decisions are aligned with current clinical
evidence. Helping more patients access treatment from these evidence-based conservative
providers will not only result in better clinical outcomes, but will also save millions of dollars
in direct medical expenses. "

WebMD Spinal Decompression

Spinal Decompression Therapy

If you have lasting back pain and other related symptoms, you know how disruptive to your life it can be. You may be unable to think of little else except finding relief. Some people turn to spinal decompression therapy -- either surgical or nonsurgical. Here's what you need to know to help decide whether it might be right for you.

What Is Nonsurgical Spinal Decompression?

Nonsurgical spinal decompression is a type of motorized traction that may help relieve back pain. Spinal decompression works by gently stretching the spine. That changes the force and position of the spine. This change takes pressure off the spinal disks, which are gel-like cushions between the bones in your spine, by creating negative pressure in the disc.

As a result, bulging or herniated disks may retract, taking pressure off nerves and other structures in your spine. This in turn, helps promote movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the disks so they can heal.
