5 Common Chiropractic Techniques For Back and Neck Pain

5 Common Chiropractic Techniques For Back And Neck Pain

Yesterday, we covered the surprising conditions that a chiropractor is able to treat such as digestive disorders, stress, and migraines. Chiropractic care involves adjustments of the nervous system or spinal manipulation, as many chiropractors like to call it. At HealthMax Physiotherapy, we’re all about empowering the community about what we do which is why today, we cover some of the most Common Chiropractic Techniques. When seeking treatment from a chiropractor, it’s essential that you understand the various techniques and what they will hopefully accomplish. Here are the five most common techniques for back and neck pain.

Gonstead Adjustment

One of the most common chiropractic techniques is the Gonstead adjustment which is used to fix a specific problem. Let’s assume that you’re suffering from long-term back pain. A chiropractor will successfully locate the problematic area and adjust accordingly. The Gonstead adjustment involves a thorough analysis of the spinal region and this adjustment will realign the spine, reducing pain and inflammation in the affected areas.

Diversified Technique

Arguably the most popular techniques amongst chiropractors are the diversified technique. When you visit a chiropractor and you’re looking for instant relief of from your neck and back pain, this is probably the technique they will use. This technique is a way to adjust the lumbar disk herniations  that cause the majority of back and neck pain. This technique is the one associated with “popping” joints that have been restored to improve function.

Logan Technique

The Logan technique is a form of chiropractic adjustment which involves applying pressure to the spine. This gentle pressure will help realign the bones in the spine itself and is known to reduce headaches and migraines. This technique is also used to release tension and stress in the body while restoring balance.

Flexion Distraction

One of the less common techniques is called flexion distraction, which is an adjustment used to treat scoliosis, joint pain, and other conditions that cause back and neck pain. With this adjustment, a chiropractor will stretch the back, aligning the spine which is done to treat disk herniations. The flexion-distraction is a clinically proven method to treat specific back ailments like facet joint pain.

Soft Tissue Therapy

The soft tissue technique is a complex soft tissue massage that focuses on muscles and ligaments as opposed to the spine directly. Applying Soft Tissue Therapy to areas where the joints have been inflamed clears up scar tissue and any other “injury waste” that may be impeding an athlete or a person who has just experienced an injury. This soft tissue therapy will release toxic byproducts and will improve blood flow and circulation.

If you’ve recently been in a motor vehicle accident or suffered a recent sports injury then these adjustments and techniques may speed up the recovery process.
