The Most Effective Non Surgical Back Pain Treatment

As an "alternative" treatment, Chiropractic remains as the overwhelming favorite in the US for many painful conditions. Chiropractic adjustments target the spine and the soft tissue of the body. Most people may not know about adjustments of the extremities and joints other than the spine.

Chiropractic adjustments go beyond spinal manipulation, many chiropractors practice adjusting the extremities and also perform soft tissue mobilization to help ease pain in movement and allow the muscular imbalances to become less of a problem, weather its through tightness or the presence of adhesions and scar tissue build up. Furthermore many also practice other soft tissue treatment techniques, such as:

Graston Technique
Active Release Technique
Cold Laser Therapy
Deep Tissue Massage

Along with these techniques some Unique Treatment Facilities, like Living Well Medical, have a team of medical care professionals that form an integrated approach to help ease pain and speed recovery. Professional Massage Therapists, Physical Therapists, Medical Doctors and Chiropractic working in the same facility can better communicate a patients need and progress instead of sending notes and charts to another specialist, who may have no direct contact with the patients doctor. This can sometimes frustrate the patient and even slow progression towards full recovery.

The importance of communication between specialists, the availability of a various techniques, and the integration of them in to a comprehensive program is truly a cutting edge approach that only used to be available to professional athletes. Some techniques may be great for certain patients while others may not garner much of a response, so having a treatment protocol ready for every type of patient can mean recovery in a month rather than becoming a chronic issue to deal with for years, eventually leading to surgeries and more pain.

Chronic pain, especially back and leg pain, is treatable, without surgery. Non Invasive treatment is available to everyone, and is even covered by most insurances.
