Perhaps the most common reason that patients seek treatment from our chiropractor in Nashville, TN is due to back pain. The specific location where you are feeling pain can often reveal the underlying cause of your back pain. Many patients experience their discomfort in their lower back, but compressed nerves can also cause referred pain in other parts of the body. If you are a younger adult, between the ages of about 30 and 60, lower back pain usually occurs because of the discs (spaces between your vertebrae), such as degenerative disc disease or lumbar disc herniation. Younger adults might also experience lower back pain because of a muscle strain. Older adults typically experience lower back pain because of joint degeneration or because of a compression fracture. Upper and middle back pain can be caused by a number of different factors, such as injury to the area, muscle strain, overuse, pressure on the nerves from a herniated disc, osteoarthritis, poor posture, and more. Neck pain also results from similar reasons, such as poor posture, degenerative disorders, straining the muscles, and more.
If you are experiencing pain anywhere in your neck or back, it is likely that chiropractic services can help you achieve better pain management and work to resolve your symptoms over time. The chiropractor in Nashville, TN uses diversified spinal and extremity adjustments to create motion in spinal joints with the goal of restoring structure and function. Patients with pain in their neck, back, or legs can benefit from the Cox Flexion Distraction technique for safe and efficient pain relief. With this treatment, Dr. Henry aligns your spine, using slow, precise, and repetitive movements allow the discs in the lower back to expand. These motions are effective because they allow the discs a period of relief from constant pressure, which reduces inflammation and consequently restores optimal nerve function. Lumbar traction, a gentle and safe chiropractic technique, targets the lumbar muscles to reintroduce kinetic activity. The traction unit then comfortably applies traction to the spinal joint, decompressing the disc and reducing pain. Unlike conventional traction that stretches the back only, the traction procedure aids in reconstitution and disc healing, allowing increased circulation to the damaged area. There are numerous chiropractic techniques to relieve pain. Call for an appointment today to receive the treatment you need.
