When we qualify and accept a patient, our first step is to find out the actual cause of your low back pain. From there we can properly understand if we can help you, and if we can, how best do that.
For example, it may be an organic cause, or it could be mechanical. About 95% of the cases that we see are mechanical, which is good news because this is a window in which we have great success.
Next, we determine the best course of treatment that will suit each client’s particular case.
When our client is in acute pain, we may start with cold laser therapy to reduce inflammation so that they will generally feel relief, which will allow us to move on to the correction stage of the care.
After the correction stage, intrinsic core strengthening is employed to ensure that all the treatments before are locked into place, which insures you don’t have to deal with whatever type of headache pain you might have again.
To see if chiropractic care is right for your condition, you can fill out a questionnaire on that you can find here. Based on the answers, we can schedule a chiropractic exam and consultation.
