Chiropractic care is given by a licensed chiropractor that uses hands on approach to manipulate different parts of the musculoskeletal structure to alleviate pain and to help patients avoid surgical intervention under traditional medical care. Chiropractic care can help you to return to doing the things you used to do when tissue injures have cause a restriction of mobility to any of your joints. Pain felt in the back is one of the leading causes of people starting to live a sedentary life rather than enjoying an active life.
When you go to the chiropractor for relieve from back pain they first take a complete medical history. They want to work with you, and your other physician to help you be restored to health, so they need to know about any medical treatments you have recently had, and about any medications you might be taking.
The massage therapy that is performed to help relieve back pain cannot be done until there is an x-ray image of your spine so the therapeutic specialist can determine if their treatment could possibly cause more pain for you.
The treatment process for back pain will possibly include spine manipulation, deep tissue massage therapy, diet recommendations, exercise recommendations, and vitamin therapy. Many people think that if they go see one of these specialist their pain will be magically alleviated in one visit and they will feel as good as new. The truth is that most patients who have chronic back pain or back pain associated with a recent traumatic injury will have to see the specialist more than once before they start to see lasting relief from their discomfort.
The manipulation of the spine and the deep tissue massage will give you some temporary relief from the pain in your back, but the pain will likely return over a period of time. Each time you receive a treatment you will find that the results of the treatment last longer, and you will find that the relief is more complete.
You have to follow the advice they give you on diet and exercise if you want the pain to be relieved for long periods of time, or to have the pain go away for good. There are no magic cures when it comes to chronic pains in your back, neck, or joints. It takes a great effort on your part and the part of your doctors, and medical treatment specialist to find what things will help you have a reduction in pain, and an increase in mobility.
