Back Pain Treatments

Back pain is all too common. Worldwide, about 7.5% of people suffer from it. It can be acute or chronic, but either way, what you want is back pain relief. Dr. Christopher Dolecki of Dolecki Chiropractic Clinic in Lake Orion, MI, understands the negative effect that back pain can have on your life and will work with you to find a solution. 

Chiropractic adjustments

When the vertebrae in your spine become misaligned, that can cause back pain. It can also lead to many other health issues that will lead you to visit your chiropractor. Chiropractic adjustments take many forms, and they can be gentle or high-velocity, and they can be done by hand or with an instrument. The goal is all the same, to provide you with back pain relief and to improve your overall health. 

Spinal decompression

Your spine is made up of vertebrae which are separated by cushioning discs. The disc helps the joints to work well, and it keeps the bones from rubbing together. If one or more of your discs have become injured from an accident or from the aging process, they can herniate or bulge and press on the nerves that emerge from the spine. With spinal decompression, the spine is stretched so that the space between the vertebrae is increased and it allows the disc to go back where it belongs, and stop pressing on nerves, thus relieving pain. 

Piezo wave

Piezo Wave therapy uses sound waves to treat soft tissues as well as joint pain. It improves circulation in the affected area, reduces tension, and speeds up healing. It also increases the production of collagen. This therapy gives a focused deep tissue massage which helps to provide back pain relief. 

Therapeutic exercise

Therapeutic exercise is targeted at the area that is causing your back pain. It will help to strengthen your back and provide the spine with more stability and flexibility. These exercises can be performed at home and allow you to continue your treatment when you are away from our office. Both stretching and strength training may be recommended depending on your body and the condition of your back.
