How your Tuscaloosa Chiropractor Treats Back Pain
The first step in our back pain treatment is to determine the cause and severity of your condition through a physical examination, medical background check and possibly medical testing and imaging.
One of our core treatments that help most patients is a spinal alignment, also known as a chiropractic adjustment or spinal adjustment. This particular treatment consists of our chiropractor manipulating the vertebrae in the spine using a small amount of force. It realigns the vertebrae with the discs to reduce the pressure on the muscles, soft tissue and nerves surrounding the spinal cord. Additionally, realigning the spine allows nutrients to flow more optimally throughout the back in order to promote healing. We might also perform spinal decompression, which consists of our chiropractor using a motorized or manual device to gently stretch the spine, so an injured disc may heal more effectively without the pressure of the vertebrae on it. Moreover, nutrients necessary for healing flow more optimally through the area.
