If you are walking around with low back pain, then you realize it is not a stroll in the park, often resulting in pain ranging from constant to debilitating. Low back pain, sometimes in the form of a herniated disc or sometimes more generalized, can be an ongoing lifelong problem. Many people just decide to live with the pain. At Hruby Chiropractic, we don’t buy that. People should not go about their day with pain. We believe that if you can rid yourself of that ongoing back pain, you can live your life optimally.
We often see patients that come in with a herniated disc. A herniated disc is sometimes called a slipped or ruptured disc. Think of a herniated disc like a jelly donut, the soft part in the middle, surrounded by a firm exterior. What happens is the jellied part pushes through the exterior surface, resulting in pain.
At Hruby Chiropractic, we review our patient’s history, examining our patient with a comprehensive assessment. Typically, we recommend one or a combination of the following:
Decompression therapy: This therapy is a nonsurgical program designed to relieve pain in the lower back and neck. As we stretch the spine, we take pressure off a compressed nerve root, therefore help to relieve pain.
Chiropractic Adjustments: When patients have nerve irritability and need range restored in the back, they come to us for Chiropractic Adjustments. One of the best things our patients like about receiving chiropractic adjustments is that they are a completely drug-free path to healing the body naturally. We find that most of our patients want to heal on a drug fee path.
A chiropractic adjustment is a procedure in which chiropractors use their hands or a small instrument to apply a controlled, sudden force to a spinal joint. The goal of chiropractic adjustment, also known as spinal manipulation, is to correct structural alignment and improve your body’s optimal function.
Therapeutic massage: Improves circulation and muscle function, often focusing on one area, to obtain a therapeutic effect. Our massage therapist offers a variety of techniques. We also offer pregnancy massage, providing a special table designed for pregnant women.
Physical therapy: Our therapists incorporate Swedish techniques, deep tissue, stretching and range of motion to achieve optimum efficacy when working those problem areas.
Nobody should accept back pain of any kind. There are solutions. Before you shrug off that radiating pain, consider an appointment with Hruby Chiropractic. We will look at your pain and look at a long-term solution, looking at the cause, and with that, the real possibility of a solution.
