Do you remember seeing a diagram of bones in the human body? It is often surprising just how prominent the backbone looks in these diagrams. The spine is usually the star of the show, connecting the other bones, supporting the body, making movement possible--but for all the attention we give to the backbone on diagrams, how much do we think about our backs in everyday life? Maybe we have chairs designed for back health, or possibly spend a few minutes contemplating how to reach that one inaccessible itch, but that's usually the summit of our interest. However, when back pain arises, it seems we can't think of anything but our backs--and that's where chiropractic pain therapy comes in.
Chiropractic medicine is one of the few fields where the back is focused on just as much as in those bone diagrams. Of course, in this case, it's not just bones that have the spotlight. Chiropractors focus on diagnosing and treating disorders in the nervous and musculoskeletal systems--and, quite often, this focus leads them to work regularly on the spine and back muscles. Different techniques are applied for different ailments, but chiropractors don't just tackle diagnosing and treating specific issues. Even non-specific lower back pain can be brought to a chiropractor.
So, how do chiropractors help patients with back pain? What treatments are used? Here's a quick look!
