How Chiropractic Works to Get Rid of Low Back Pain | Chiropractor in Newport Beach, CA
Do you know how Chiropractic care can help get rid of low back pain? Let’s discuss how Chiropractic care works!
Low Back Pain & Subluxations
Low back pain often comes from a condition known as a subluxation, which is a misalignment of the spine. This will put pressure on nerves causing pain or causing a joint in the spine not to function properly. If this bone is out of alignment, you can see how it can put pressure on this nerve. That’s a thing that will cause inflammation and pain that stays in your low back pain that can travel down into your leg. Chiropractic uses adjustments to help restore the normal position and motion in the joint, which in turn reduces pressure on the nerve, thus resolving the pain.
The Different Techniques We Use
Priestly Chiropractic has a number of techniques, which we use to relieve your low back pain. One technique is a drop table, a table that pops up and we thrust on the pelvis, allowing gravity to help us with the adjustment. The second technique we use is a non force technique where we use an instrument to align the bones of the spine to relieve your pain. This tool puts a force into the spine to restore the position of the bone and we still motion to the joint. This technique is very gentle, and many children and elderly patients enjoy it. Another technique we use is a manual adjustment, which we use our hands to put a force onto the spine to turn the bone into a more normal alignment and we still have joint mobility.
