Lower Back Pain Relief in Bloomington
If you suffer from lower back pain in Bloomington, it can affect all areas of your life. You may find yourself unable to complete activities, work, interact with your children, play sports, and more. Learn how our Bloomington chiropractor can treat your lower back pain naturally, so you can avoid invasive options like surgery.
Symptoms of Low Back Pain
It is pretty obvious if you suffer low back pain. You may feel a dull ache or sharp pain in your low back, or even a "pins and needles" feeling. Sometimes, back pain refers to pain down your hips, buttocks, legs, or other areas of the back.
While you might opt to wait a day or two to see whether your pain goes away, back pain often does not respond well to traditional treatment of rest and ice. Why? The reason for the pain is never treated. Chiropractic is your best option for treating back pain and preventing recurrence.
Massage for Low Back Pain
At True Health Chiropractic & Massage, we use both chiropractic adjustments and therapeutic massage to treat your low back pain. We believe that this tandem approach speeds healing.
Massage loosens muscle tension in the low back. Tight muscles pull your spine out of alignment, so loosening your muscles helps. Massage also promotes improved circulation and nervous system health.
We often recommend that you come in for a massage before your adjustment, especially if muscle tension plays a role in your back pain.
Chiropractic Treatment of Back Pain in Bloomington
Chiropractic adjustments at True Health Chiropractic and Massage, restore the natural curvature and length of the spine. Often, compression of the spine leads to lasting back pain. By returning your spine to its optimal shape, our Bloomington chiropractor reduces your levels of pain and inflammation.
During adjustments we use both our hands and the Pulstar adjusting tool. This allows us to make precise adjustments with controlled pressure, while also using our hands to go deeper if we feel it is needed.
Spinal Decompression for Low Back Pain
In some cases, we may suggest spinal decompression to treat low back pain, especially in conjunction with a herniated disc or slipped disc. This method uses a special traction table to gently reverse the compression of your spine. We have a DRX 9000 table that we use for spinal decompression. This technologically advanced decompression table allows us to provide you with fast relief for your back pain. By relying on gravity and traction, we are able to reverse compression gently and create space to soothe herniated and slipped discs.
