Did you know that roughly 16 million American adults suffer from back pain? This accounts for nearly 10 percent of American adults. Chronic back pain is also a leading workplace injury. Back pain can create a negative impact on your quality of life, overall health, productivity, and more. At Bolz Chiropractic in Topeka, our chiropractors provide quality care to effectively treat and reduce lower back pain.
Treating Lower Back Pain
Chiropractors use hands-on treatments to reduce and relieve aches and pains. By adjusting your spine, it is possible to relieve back pain in the short and long term and improve the structural dysfunction underlying the pain. Some of the methods our chiropractors use to treat lower back pain include:
- Chiropractic adjustments: Hands-on or instrument assisted treatments designed to induce movement.
- At home exercise instruction: We will help you through a variety of exercises designed to stretch the muscles.
- Cold laser therapy: Energy at certain wavelengths is used to penetrate the skin and encourage biological healing processes within the cells.
- Interferential therapy: Can be used to relieve pain and stimulate healing.
When treating lower back pain, the chiropractor may also use a variety of other treatments, such as gait analysis, postural analysis, soft tissue manipulation, and more. We will discuss your environment, lifestyle, and other factors that may contribute to your soreness. Other services include cryotherapy and ultrasound therapy that can be incorporated into your treatment plan as needed.
Lower Back Pain Relief You Can Count On
Pain medications can temporarily cover up the pain, but in the long run, the aches typically return because the root cause has not been addressed. Medications lose their effectiveness over time, can be expensive, and some are addictive. Hands-on treatments performed by a chiropractor and correcting the intersegmental dysfunction can provide relief for months and years to come.
