Providing Back Pain Relief through Chiropractic and Acupuncture Treatments
Low back pain is one of the most common disorders affecting American adults. It is estimated that 75 million Americans will experience it each year and 80 percent of the adult population will suffer from low back pain during their lifetime. Low back pain is the most common cause of disability among the 30-50 year age group. Dr. Christina, Leawood’s Top-Rated Local® Chiropractor, and our skillful massage therapists Lexi and Raechel, are committed to helping you find relief from one-time and/or chronic back pain.
Low back pain patients comprise the second largest diagnostic group seen by medical family practitioners, yet the common treatments recommended by these practitioners are often found to be ineffective. A prominent medical low back pain researcher suggests that family physicians consider referring these patients for chiropractic care and massage therapy as it has proven helpful for this disorder.
Research studies show that low back pain is generally a mechanical disorder requiring precise and focused treatment. Gentle (no twist) chiropractic adjustments by your Leawood chiropractor and special massage techniques by your massage therapist provides comprehensive relief that is meant to pave the way to optimal wellness.
How Our Clinic Helps with Back Pain Relief
- We take a different approach to back pain. Let’s first figure out what caused it and why it hasn’t resolved itself on its own. Having the correct diagnostics is a huge component to treating back pain successfully and something Dr. Christina and Dr. Jeff, Lexi and Raechel, our massage therapists, excel at.
- Next, making sure we can help. We believe that understanding when to refer a patient to other medical professionals is just as important as providing treatment ourselves. Should we believe that holistic care outside of our specialty would be more conducive to healing, we’ll provide referrals to only the best professionals in their field.
- Finally, we tailor a program of corrective treatment especially for you; usually consisting of electro-acupuncture, massage therapy, and gentle (no twist) chiropractic.
In the medical journal Canadian Family Physician, Dr. William Kirkaldy-Willis, professor of orthopedic surgery at the University of Saskatchewan, reported on a study of chronic low back pain patients. Back pain treatment through chiropractic adjustments was shown to be so favorable that he concluded that patients who seek chiropractic care experience more comprehensive lower back pain relief than those who do not.
Many people frustrated with inadequate treatment seek chiropractic care and massage therapy as a solution. Indeed, growing numbers of low back pain sufferers are turning to chiropractic care each year, finding relief and returning to an active lifestyle, unrestricted by debilitating pain. The latest statistics show that about one-half of low back patients now see a chiropractor on a regular basis, and the percentage is growing everyday.
