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."

Probiotics for Better Health

Probiotics for Better Health

"Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for you, especially your digestive system. We usually think of these as germs that cause diseases. But your body is full of bacteria, both good and bad. Probiotics are often called 'good' or 'helpful' bacteria because they help keep your gut healthy."

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.

How Long Does a Disc Herniation Take to Heal

How Long Does a Disc Herniation Take to Heal

webmdlogo


"The cracks in the disc don't repair themselves, but the pain usually fades over time. More than half of the people who have a herniated disc recover in the first 3 months.

Due to age, injury, or both, the outer layer of a spinal disc may dry out and form tiny cracks. Sometimes this causes a:

  • Bulging disc. Some of the thick gel in the disc may leak into the cracks. The disc may begin to bulge out from between the bones of the spine (vertebrae).

  • Ruptured disc. The gel breaks through the capsule.

  • Free fragment. Fragments of a ruptured disc may break completely free of the disc and lodge in the spinal canal camera.gif.

  • Any of these stages can cause pressure on a nerve root and symptoms of pain and numbness."
