A proper diagnosis of back pain is important when deciding upon treatment options. Back pain can run the gamut from being a mild muscle strain to more serious nerve root and disc involved conditions. For your back pain, Dr. Henry will carefully exam you and perform a series of physical tests to assess the cause and severity of your pain. Based upon the results of these exams and any imaging test results, he will discuss with you various treatment choices. They are all non-invasive and non-surgical and are done with expertise and years of experience in treating Nashville back pain.
There are many manual options to treat back pain. 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, which relieves any pain you may be experiencing. Slow, precise, 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. Another technique used to treat Nashville back pain is lumbar traction. Lumbar traction is a gentle and safe chiropractic technique which targets the lower back muscles to reintroduce kinetic activity. The traction unit then comfortably applies traction to the spinal joint, stretching the spinal muscles, 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. Topical creams, like BioFreeze, can be applied as an adjunct to these manual therapies. This cooling cream, which does not contain any oils, waxes, aloe or petroleum, offers relief that lasts for hours and is one of the most effective solution for joint and muscle comfort.
