Most people suffer from back pain at some point in their life. Many things can cause back discomfort, including soft tissue and skeletal issues. Dr. Justin Sands of Sands Chiropractic in Polk City, IA offers treatments to address the musculoskeletal conditions that can cause back pain.
Spinal adjustment is a primary technique used by chiropractors worldwide. More than 100 versions of adjustment are practiced, and your chiropractor will use the one that is best suited to your body and your condition. The goal is the same; to restore alignment to the spine so that your whole body can function at its optimal level. The slight movement of the vertebrae can help to relieve back pain and let impulses flow without being impeded.
Chi is the energy that runs through your body along the meridians. If there are blockages to the meridians, it affects the flow of the chi and can result. To be healthy and pain-free, you need to free up energy. This is done with thin needles, magnets, lasers, or electric pulses. They are placed at specific points on the meridians associated with the area of pain or blockage.
Massage therapy is designed to remove stress and tension from sore muscles in the back. We provide a variety of different types of massage, including deep tissue, relaxation, hot stone, and prenatal. No matter what the cause of your back pain is, we can help to make it and you feel better.
Therapeutic exercise is helpful in continuing your recovery between your visits to the chiropractor. You will be taught very specific exercises to address the root cause of your back pain. It will usually involve stretching and strengthening exercises that will help with your flexibility and overall mobility.
Active release technique
Active release technique (ART) uses specific hands-on techniques to diagnose and treat the root cause of your pain. It is used for soft tissue conditions and can usually resolve even chronic pain with just four visits. There is special training involved for the chiropractor and the patients benefit from this training. The technique that is used restores and repairs the tissue.
