Lower Back Pain Treatment Brisbane
Almost everyone will experience some form of back pain in their lifetime. Common causes include falls, prolonged sitting, sedentary jobs, highly physical jobs, twisting of the trunk, excessive reaching, muscle strains, accidents, sports injuries and obesity. Many people who suffer from back pain don’t realise that chiropractic can be a good way to manage and treat lower back pain injuries.
What Do Chiropractors Do?
Chiropractors use a range of treatments that are designed to adjust the spine and soft tissues – with the aim of relieving pain and improving functional ability. Treatment methods include hands-on spinal adjustments and manual therapy that restores balance and function to the spine and nervous system. Brisbane city chiropractors focus on the proper adjustment of the musculoskeletal structure (particularly the spine) which will allow the body to heal itself without the need for surgery or medication. Spinal and extremity joint adjustments are used to restore mobility to joints that have been restricted by tissue injuries due to traumatic events like falling or repetitive stress (such as sitting without proper back support).
Spinal Adjustments and Manual Therapy
Spinal adjustment and manual therapy refers to a high-velocity, short lever arm thrust that is applied to a specific vertebra. This is done to improve functionality, reduce nerve irritability and restore range of motion in the back. The approach used will be tailored to suit the individual needs of the patient – treatments can be lower force with the activator to more manual adjustments.
