Your spine takes a lifetime of abuse, but our Lake Worth chiropractor can help. With each step you take, your spine is subtly compressed due to gravity and the shock-absorbing qualities of the discs in between the vertebrae in your back. It is no wonder that as we age, many of us start to experience issues with our back. Many times this is due to a degeneration of the discs in your back, which can crack and release the inner jelly-like substance. While some people can have this issue with no back pain at all, other people may experience back pain that ranges from moderate to severe.
One of the methods our Lake Worth chiropractor uses to help patients who are experiencing back pain is spinal decompression therapy. This therapy gently stretches (decompresses) the spine, allowing the discs in your back room to realign and relieve pressure that might be placed on the nerves or bones in your back. The treatment doesn’t hurt–in fact, many patients report that is feels great to have their backs stretched like this.
Of course, this isn’t the only option for back pain relief available from our Lake Worth chiropractor. Our office offers massage, acupuncture, and traditional chiropractic manipulation. Our doctor will develop a care plan that is suited to your individual needs based on your medical history, current health concerns, and lifestyle. No matter what treatment is used, though, you can trust that you are in good hands with our team!
