s back pain negatively impacting your life? Dr. Irwin Teichman at Athletic Injury Clinic in Santa Barbara and Ventura, CA, offers customized care so that you can live free from pain.
Chiropractic Techniques for Back Pain Relief
Back pain is a very common issue, but it is also unique to the individual experiencing it. No two people have the same injuries, symptoms, and factors that contributed to the pain, as everyone has different lives.
As such, chiropractic care is customized to the individual and everything that plays a role in their pain. While the specifics vary, Dr. Teichman at Athletic Injury Clinic in Santa Barbara and Ventura, CA, share some of the most common types of techniques that are combined in a personalized way to address back pain.
Even a slight misalignment can lead to chronic back pain, as it places strain on the muscles and pressure on the discs and nerves. Chiropractors use spinal adjustments and manipulation to restore alignment where the vertebrae have shifted to relieve this pressure and strain.
Soft Tissue Techniques
There are many soft tissue techniques and modalities that can relieve tension, break up scar tissue, improve blood flow, stimulate tissue repair, improve range of motion, and more. Some examples include, but are not limited to, therapeutic massage, ultrasound therapy, and electrical muscle stimulation.
Targeted movements are combined according to the individual’s needs. These can include stretches that help relieve tension in the back and restore range of motion, as well as strengthening exercises that improve spinal support. They are also often used in posture correction, as posture is at the core of many cases of back pain.
Everything you do in your daily life can either help or harm your back. This includes your posture, how you sleep, the shoes you wear, your level of activity, the type of activity, and much more. Chiropractors provide personalized advice on areas that could be improved to improve spinal health and prevent future back pain.
As your habits and activities can contribute to your back pain, so can what you eat. Your bones, muscles, and joints need specific vitamins, nutrients, and minerals to be in optimal health. Additionally, specific foods can help reduce or eliminate your pain, especially when combined with chiropractic techniques and lifestyle adjustments. Your chiropractor can recommend the best foods for your needs.
