If you have back pain, manual therapy by a qualified chiropractor can help. Give us a call to schedule your same-day appointment.
Do you suffer from ongoing back pain?
We specialize in manual therapy and rehabilitative care for injuries and accidents.
There are many tools in our toolbox to help you heal! Our body consists of bones, nerves, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and disc tissue and any of these can become inflamed or injured. While chiropractic adjustment focuses on bones, joints and nerves of the spine, manual therapy is for the ligaments of the body. Ligaments are the ropes of our body connecting bone to bone.
The manual therapy techniques used at our clinic will help you recover faster from a variety of injuries. So if you have tried different treatments with temporary relief, you may be missing manual therapy treatment.
Manual therapy for auto accidents and injuries
If you’ve sustained an injury, particularly if you’ve been in a car accident, you may hurt different structures of your body. When your body is tossed quickly by an impact, injury can occur in the bones, joints, muscles, nerves, ligaments, or disks. An injured ligament is called a sprain and is considered the most common injury to cause chronic pain. Manual therapy is the treatment that can and will prevent chronic pain, and help chronic problems heal.
If you have ongoing pain that needs continuous management, such as back pain, disc compression, disc herniation, whiplash, headaches, joint pain or neck pain, manual therapy will help you break through to lasting results.
Manual therapy techniques used by our practitioners:
- Pin and Stretch:
Increase the range of motion in muscles and large joints.
- Passive Range of Motion (PROM) mobilization:
Improve joint mobility.
- Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation (IASTM):
For muscular scar tissue.
- Manual Traction:
For deep joint stretch and disk problems.
- Post Isometric Relaxation (PIR):
Restores muscle function.
Manual therapy techniques are natural and non-invasive and can provide long-lasting relief without the need for drugs or surgery. A skilled chiropractor, or a medical massage specialist will work with your body to reduce inflammation naturally and help speed up the healing process. Manual therapy is especially important in preventing excessive scar tissue. When the body attempts to recover from more severe injuries, scar tissue is formed in ways that result in long term pain and disability. Manual therapy will prevent such negative results and solidify the improvement from all other treatments you may be receiving.
If you have back-related pain following an injury or accident, manual therapy is often an important ingredient in the recipe of your recovery. This is especially true for common injuries such as:
- Back sprains and strains
- Cervicogenic headaches
- Degenerative disc disease
- Myofascial pain
- Piriformis syndrome
- Leg length discrepancy
- Spinal osteoarthritis
