What Causes Back Pain?
Pain anywhere is a sign something is wrong. Back pain arises when your spine becomes blocked or misaligned. Your spine may lose alignment from injury, poor posture, auto accident, or underlying medical conditions. Until spine problems are fixed using chiropractic, your back pain will always return. This is why rest, ice, and medication are insufficient to treat it.
The nervous system runs down the spine, allowing the brain to communicate with the whole body. By clearing spine issues and relieving back pain, we promote nervous system health.
Chiropractic Spine Relief in West Babylon, Long Island
Our chiropractor selects from the following services to heal your back pain or injury, soothe your nervous system, and relieve pain naturally:
- Traditional Chiropractic Care - Traditional chiropractic care adjusts the full length of the spine. We may use decompression to restore the spine's length, realign the spine, and strengthen the nervous system.
- Upper cervical chiropractic care - The upper cervical method of chiropractic adjusts only the top two vertebrae of the spine. This method is beneficial for relieving shoulder, head, and neck pain.
- Cold Laser Therapy - Cold laser therapy promotes wound and injury healing using a non-invasive technique. Cold laser is beneficial for back pain relief especially after sports injuries, auto accidents, and more.
- Mechanical traction - Many of our patients suffer from chronic back conditions or seek injury recovery. We implement mechanical traction with these patients to increase mobility, relieve pain, and stretch and strengthen muscles.
- Cryotherapy - Cold or ice treatment is a reliable way to relieve back pain and reduce inflammation. We may incorporate cryotherapy to reduce swelling and promote healing in injured soft tissue.
- Arthrostim Joint Mobilization - The electric Arthrostim device lets us make precise adjustments that mobilize your joints and loosen up adhesions that restrict your mobility. The device delivers consistent, gentle pressure and promotes effective healing when used with chiropractic.
- VibraPercussor Myofascial Release Technique - This alternative to Massage Therapy relieves pain and inflammation in muscles, joints, and soft tissue. We recommend the VibraPercussor Myofascial Release for neck pain and back pain. Additional benefits of this technique are improved circulation and lymphatic drainage.
- Trigger Point Therapy - When we make targeted adjustments to trigger points that cause you back pain or neck pain, we help you find relief naturally.
- Custom Fit Orthotics - When your feet are off balance, everything about your feet suffers. Thus it's not uncommon for back pain to have a foot component. Custom fit orthotics in Long Island correct your posture from the ground up.
- Motorized Flexion Distraction - Ideal for treating disc problems including lumbar spinal stenosis, this treatment draws spinal fluid back into your discs, allowing your body to heal.
