Your Aching Back
One of the most frequent conditions bringing patients to see Dr. Z is back pain. For back pain treatment in Richardson, we rely on a number of different services. One commonly treated problem is vertebral subluxation. This refers to the mechanical compression and irritation to spinal joints and nerves. Correct this dysfunction and neurological function is restored so the body can heal itself. Several circumstances can lead to vertebral subluxation such an injury or fall, poor posture, joint swelling, osteoporosis, poor diet, and tight back muscles.
Relieving Pain with Chiropractic
Chiropractic care can be the key to relieving pain that results from a number of different ailments and injuries. Fortunately, there is reliable research to support the benefits of chiropractic.
For sciatica—the name for pain caused by irritation to the sciatic nerve—The European Spine Journal published the results of a clinical trial; there was a 72 percent success rate for chiropractic adjustments to treat sciatica, a 20 percent success rate for physical therapy and 50 percent for corticosteroid injections.
For low back pain and neck pain, the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics found that patients treated by chiropractors were feeling better after one month of treatment as compared to patients treated by family physicians. In fact, nearly one-third of those patients treated by family physicians reported worsening back pain.
