We believe actions speak louder than words, and with that in mind, we make it our personal challenge to get results...fast! As you may already be aware, low back pain is one of the most common reasons a person presents to a Chiropractor. Research tells us that Chiropractic care was rated ‘by far the best treatment for low back pain’ in numerous clinical studies, including the famous Canadian Government funded Magna Study. Herein lays the question of how to improve on the best treatment available for uncomplicated low back pain. Our answer to the question stems form the actual source of acute spinal pain & spinal joint dysfunction.
Spinal Pain Overview
The two main sources of acute pain form the spine and surrounding areas are Joint fixation & Muscle dysfunction. When joints become fixated or “subluxated” in the spine, they actually become stuck to teach other, similar to how a suction cup sticks to a smooth surface. This can occur for several reasons: repetitive motion, physical trauma (such as a car accident), or even by mental and emotional stress. When smooth surfaces of like shape and size are pressed up against each other, the result is a slight vacuum formation, and a resulting decrease in motion of the two vertebra. When this happens, the surrounding muscles go into spasm. Pain is generated from the muscle spasm itself, toxins produced by the muscle spasm (mostly lactic acid), and by the mechanical irritation of the joints and ligaments at the point of spinal fixation. The result: pain of two distinct origins. Traditional Chiropractic adjustments will usually restore spinal motion, but there is more than an adjustment received from our treatment.
