Written By Cerwin Clinic of Chiropractic on July 9, 2018

The most common form of relief from low back pain is medication. Did you know that seeking chiropractic care is more effective and less invasive without the use of medication?

Why Should You Choose Chiropractic Care? 

According to statistics, every year 22 million Americans visit their chiropractors.

35% (7.7 million) of these people are doing so because they want to get help with pain in their back, whether this is caused by muscle strain, sports injuries, or an accident. Other reasons include headaches, and pains in the legs, arms, and neck. 

So what is chiropractic care? 

-A regimen of treatment specifically designed and catered to your needs and goals.

How does it work?

Dr. Cerwin will employ the use of a number of techniques, including spinal manipulation which uses the gentle force of the hands.  These techniques are used to correct the alignment of your spine. 

Without irritated nerves, your body has the ability to heal itself without requiring medication or surgery. 

Adjusting misaligned vertebrae also helps to restore mobility, and provides pain relief in various areas, including connective tissue, bones, joints, and muscles. 

How Can You Make Sure Your Low Back Pain Treatment is Effective?

Initially, you will need a consultation with Dr. Cerwin to discuss your concerns. After conducting a full medical history and physical examination, Dr. Cerwin will be able to determine what’s causing your pain and what treatment, if any, is necessary. 

Every patient has different goals and Dr. Cerwin will tailor the treatment plan to your unique symptoms and condition. 

The treatment plan designed for you will also include rehabilitation, exercise, and healthy eating plans. This helps ensure that you not only overcome your current injury but that you prevent any others from occurring too. 

Helpful Hint: You should always make sure you keep your back straight, your chest forward, and your shoulders and knees aligned. Always bend from the hips, making sure your back isn’t twisted, and move with the object close to your chest. 

By undergoing a treatment plan and taking all of Dr. Cerwin’s advice into account, you should be able to enjoy a pain-free life for many years to come.
