Chiropractic May Provide Orthopedic Pain Relief

lower back pain management

Many patients are looking for alternative options for orthopedic pain relief that do not rely upon pain medications which may reduce pain but make it difficult to perform routine functions.

Chiropractic adjustments are a non-invasive and often manual therapy used to rebalance the spinal column. There has been research on chiropractic or spinal manipulation therapy (SMT) on how patients experience pain. A single session of SMT may increase the pressure pain threshold in the lumbar spine area and calf, as reported in a study published in Chiropractic & Manual Therapies. This finding may be useful to those patients who would like to experience less pain and manage their chronic or acute pain. Some patients who receive chiropractic adjustments feel an immediate reduction in pain.

Chiropractic Treatment for Spine Care and More

Patients may want to explore the benefits of chiropractic adjustments as part of the therapies used for spine care. Individual response to treatment may vary. However, many patients are looking for options to reduce pain symptoms that do not interfere with other medications or therapies they may be using. Chiropractic has been used to treat a range of symptoms and is a non-invasive complementary therapy.
