5 Chiropractic Techniques to Relieve Back and Neck Pain
Chiropractors offer several treatment options for back and neck pain, depending on the cause of your pain and other factors. Your treatment plan will be customized to suit your needs to provide the pain relief you need while supporting the healing process. If you are dealing with neck or back pain and live in or around Dearborn Heights or Allen Park, contact our chiropractors at Mi Spine Chiropractic. Let’s take a look at five of the techniques we use to help our patients.
1. Soft Tissue Therapy
Soft tissue therapy is a technique used to address the muscles and ligaments instead of directly targeting the spine. A variety of massages can be used on each side of the spine to break up scar tissue, release toxins, and improve overall circulation.
This technique uses a segmented table to help stretch and align the spine. The table moves gently, allowing the spine to flex more thoroughly. It is often used for scoliosis, herniated discs, joint dysfunctions, and other back and neck issues.
3. Thompson Technique
The Thompson technique also uses a segmented table that is referred to as a drop-table. As the chiropractor applies pressure, the table drops ever so slightly, allowing the chiropractor to provide a more thorough manipulation.
4. Gonstead Technique
The Gonstead technique is used to target a specific area. Depending on where that area is, the patient may either lie down or sit up. The chiropractor works to manually adjust the patient’s intervertebral discs to relieve pain and inflammation.
5. Logan Technique
The Logan technique uses gentle pressure to the spine to help realign the bones. It has been known to relieve headaches and migraines. This technique can also reduce tension and restore balance to the body.
