Chiropractic is often the best avenue of treatment for most low back pain as it specifically targets improvements in spinal (back) biomechanics and aims to restore proper motion and posture. This will then allow the injured vertebral discs to operate with the least amount of stress and potential for re-injury, and provide the best environment for healing.
1. Lumbar spine subluxations are often called a pinched nerve even though that is a very simple description for a complex problem.
Bad cases may have
2. Pelvic Misalignments 0ften present with people saying that their hip is “out”
Bad cases may have
Lumbar misalignments cause inflammation to the disc, causing irritation of neighbouring spinal nerves which then causes local pain or in worse cases referred pain into the leg, sciatica, pins and needles, numbness or burning sensation.
Pelvic misalignments cause inflammation in the sacro-iliac joint causing irritation to local nerves giving local ache or pain referral.
Pelvic misalignments can give hip, knee or ankle pain with unknown cause.
We will then do a thorough examination to specifically locate the exact spinal or pelvic joint that’s causing that problem. Then, with the use of full spine x-rays, determine why you have developed it and work out the best way of correction.
Once we have determined what the cause of your problem is, we will correct it by using a very specific and comfortable hands on adjustment which is aimed at restoring function of the spine. This adjustment also stimulates brain and central nervous system function, which helps lead to better control of the spine and body.
Dr. Heidi Haavik, a Chiropractor and neuroscientist has found through her research that “Chiropractic care, adjusting the spine to restore spinal function, actually changes the way the brain functions”
– Correcting the cause will reduce the time it takes for your body to optimally heal itself.
