Suffering from back pain is one of the most miserable experiences you can endure as it can affect every movement you make, and can make even sitting uncomfortable.
When you have tried painkillers and massage and it is still agony, perhaps chiropractic treatment is the best option for you.
The chiropractic adjustment is drug-free and surgery-free and can be very effective with back complaints as well as a plethora of other symptoms.
Chiropractic practitioners will identify the underlying problem from your symptoms and start a course of treatment to ensure your spine is realigned helping to ensure full mobility is restored.
But which is the best treatment for you?
Obviously the specific treatment depends on the symptoms you are suffering from.
A common treatment which can be used for sufferers of lower back pain to migraines is the Activator Technique, which is carried out with a handheld instrument which administers an impulse into the vertebrae.
The Gonstead Technique is a hands-on technique which is used to realign joints, reduce pain and stiffness and to increase mobility. It is carried out whilst you are lying on your side and the chiropractor will adjust the lower back or pelvis.
A similar technique is a Diversified Technique which will adjust the alignment of the spine and extremities. It is a hands-on technique
and comprises thrusts which realign the spine and restore mobility.
More than half of chiropractic clinics use the Flexion Distraction or Cox Technique and this is commonly used for disc herniation, facet joint pain and scoliosis. This technique requires a special table and you will feel a gentle stretching motion which will ease the pain.
