Benefits of Physical Therapy and Chiropractic Care While Treating Lower Back Pain

Therapy Options for Low Back Pain

Action Physical Therapists – South Florida’s leading Therapy Clinic

According to the American Chiropractic Association, more than 30 million Americans experience a low back pain at any given time. In most cases, low back pain is a result of an injury like muscle sprains or strains due to poor mechanics of the body when lifting heavy objects. It can also be a result of certain diseases, like sciatica, arthritis, herniated disc, or spine infections.

Benefits of Physical Therapy and Chiropractic Care for Lower Back Pain

For some people, low back pain goes away on its own in a few days, but for others, the pain becomes chronic and lasts for months and even years. It’s one of the most challenging conditions to diagnose and treat. However, with early treatment and accurate assessment, we can help you manage your low back pain with multiple treatment sessions. Our treatments include both traditional therapies and modern medicine that uses the latest technology and science available. Our sessions are diverse as they depend on the needs of every patient, but mostly, they include chiropractic manipulation, physical rehabilitation, and soft tissue therapies. Simply put, we are using our hands to manipulate your musculoskeletal system so it can easily return to its natural alignment.

As we already mentioned, the type of treatment we use depends on the specific state our patient is in. We start by taking a detailed medical history and performing a physical evaluation so we can determine the type of treatment you need. Then you will undergo a few spine manipulations to relieve pressure caused by your misaligned bones.

How Many Treatments Will You Need for Your Lower Back Pain to Improve?

In most cases, low back pain needs more than one session to correct the problem. It depends on your condition, but in general, we suggest our patients to start their treatment with 2-3 sessions a week, and once we see positive results, the treatments can be once a week.

Our chiropractic techniques are safe and effective for treating low back pain. Although safe, that doesn’t mean chiropractic care is for everyone who suffers from this condition. That’s why we always take a detailed medical history to make sure that you are not suffering from a disease that might put you at risk.

If you suffer from low back pain, whether it’s chronic or acute, don’t wait longer. Visit us today and start enjoying the benefits of chiropractic treatment for low back pain!
