It’s a global problem. 

Studies show that up to 80% of people in industrialized countries will suffer from back pain at some point in their lives. At any point in time, 30% of the world’s population is experiencing pain in their lower back!

Chiropractic offers a natural and effective low back pain treatment. Here’s how it works.

How Chiropractic Helps Low Back Pain

The American College of Physicians recently updated its guidelines to recommend chiropractic as a first line of defense against back pain. 

Unlike ibuprofen and dangerous opioids, which take the lives of 130 Americans each day, chiropractic adjustments target your back pain at its source – not mask the symptoms.

Plus, chiropractic care is effective. 73% of patients who add chiropractic to their treatment program show more improvement than those who only use conventional medicine.

Comprehensive Low Back Pain Treatment in Bradenton, FL

Your doctor at Thorassic Park will conduct an evaluation, order x-rays, and listen to your medical history and symptoms. From there, he’ll develop a personalized treatment plan that targets your low back pain at its source. 

While each patient is unique, a standard treatment program will focus on stabilizing the lower back, relieving pressure, and strengthening back muscles. Techniques may include

  • Chiropractic adjustments for mobility and re-aligning the spine
  • Physiotherapy to restore movement and stabilize
  • Low core endurance exercises to strengthen core and back muscles which prevent future injury

If x-rays trace the source of your pain to damaged nerves or bulging discs, your doctor may recommend non-surgical spinal decompression or cold laser therapy. 

In most cases, however, strengthening exercises and adjustments are enough to keep you on your feet and prevent pain from returning.
