Neck and Back Pain Facts and Statistics

Did you know that around 50% of all working Americans suffer from some form of neck and/or back pain every year? In fact, these pains are some of the most common reasons pertaining to missed workdays. Back pain is also the second most predominant reason that leads to a visit to the doctor’s office. And most of these cases are not due to serious conditions; instead, many of them are mechanical in nature. This means that most cases of back pain can be effectively treated with chiropractic therapy, mitigating the need for invasive medical procedures and the use of certain pharmaceuticals.

Chiropractic Treatment Methods

Chiropractic therapy consists of a variety of effective treatment methods, naturally helping to alleviate different forms of neck and back pain.

Chiropractic Adjustment

A chiropractic adjustment, also known as spinal manipulation, is the most common form of chiropractic therapy. By adjusting the affected spinal joints and tissues, this chiropractic treatment method helps restore mobility while alleviating pain and tightness, allowing your tissues to heal naturally.

Flexion & Distraction

Using a computerized, automated flexion distraction table, we can effectively treat cervical and lumbar disc herniations, bulges, and pinched nerves. By decreasing the pressure on the affected spinal nerves and discs, you experience improved mobility and better overall functioning after the treatment is completed.

Low-Level Laser Therapy

Also known as cold laser therapy, low-level laser therapy implements a low-level infrared laser in combination with light-emitting diodes (LEDs), effectively speeding up the healing process in injured tissues. This is accomplished by the stimulation of chromophores within your cells which jumpstart the regenerative process.
