Are you suffering from back pain and discomfort? Do you wish you had increased range of motion in your back and extremities? Well, the answer is back rehab.
Back Rehab Options
Back rehab can come in the form of many different areas, including but not limited to chiropractic adjustments, physical therapy, acupuncture, weight lifting and tailored exercises, physiotherapy, and massage therapy.
A chiropractor’s job is to assess the spine through the use of static and kinetic palpation to find misalignment, or areas of subluxation, within the spine and/or extremities. He/She then delivers a thrust in a specific line of drive to correct this subluxation. This allows the taught muscles to relax and restore range of motion to the fullest potential.
A subluxation may cause local inflammation and pain in the joint. Subluxations to the spine cause an interruption of nerve flow to the overall nervous system. The nervous system controls and coordinates every organ and body system in the human body to maintain homeostasis. When this is disrupted, disease can enter the body in the form of many different illnesses. Once the area(s) of concern are evaluated, the chiropractor will come up with a specific treatment plan tailored to the patient to be carried out depending on the severity of the injury at hand. Sometimes, further diagnostic testing is needed to make the diagnosis, such as radiographic imaging and laboratory testing. A medical referral is sometimes given in these instances, and co-management of the case may be available. Back pain is a very treatable condition that doesn’t need to take over someone’s everyday life-back rehab is available.
