Chiropractic Care for Back Pain

Seeing a Doctor of Chiropractic, otherwise known as a Chiropractor, can be a beneficial step towards effectively treating low back pain. Chinese Tuina is very similar to Chiropractic and the procedures for treating your pain and discomfort are the same. Similar to a medical doctor or a dentist, qualified chiropractors undergo a minimum of 4 years of specialist training, so you can be assured that we know more about your spine than anybody else.

What Chiropractors Do

Chiropractors utilize a series of treatments designed to manipulate the spine, joints and tissues of the body to relieve pain and improve functional ability.

Examination Procedure

If it’s your first visit, your chiropractor will examine you thoroughly before making any sort of diagnosis or treatment plan, as there are many reasons why low back pain occurs. In addition to discussing your ‘health history’, your doctor will test your reflexes, sensory nerves, joints, muscles and other areas of the body to determine the most appropriate treatment.

Treatment Plan

If a patient is suffering from ‘acute’ (pain usually lasting for up to six weeks) back pain, a typical treatment plan is 2 or 3 weekly sessions over the course of 2 to 4 weeks. Often, this can be sufficient to completely resolve the pain. After this period of intensive treatment, it would be beneficial to consider regular maintenance care – one visit, every four weeks or so.

If you wonder whether you should choose chiropractic care is good for your back pain, or would like to find out more about how chiropractic or Chinese Tuina could benefit you or members of your family, please call AlgarveChiro on +351 920290142.
