LOWER BACK PAIN
Relief Is Right Around the Corner
How Does Atlanta Medical Clinic Treat Lower Back Pain?
Most lower back pain can be treated without surgery. Treatments in our clinic use protocols from the medical disciplines of:
Interventional Pain Management (non-surgical)
Interventional Pain Management
After relieving inflammation and tension through treatment, our chiropractic physicians work with you to strengthen your surrounding muscles in order to prevent issues from becoming chronic. Our physicians may also advise you on exercises and stretches to reduce or relieve lower back pain.
A managed physical therapy program for low back pain can help build muscle strength, encourage relaxation, and improve mobility, coordination, flexibility, stability, and balance. Generally, Atlanta Medical patients who engage in a structured physical therapy program progress to wellness more quickly than those who do not.
Physical therapy modalities may include ice therapy to slow nerve conduction and decrease pain and inflammation.
Heat treatments may be used to expedite soft tissue repair. Heat increases your blood flow and speeds up your metabolic rate to aid in healing. Heat can also decrease muscle spasms and pain and promote relaxation.
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression
Non-surgical spinal decompression treats disc disorders of your neck and/or lower back. Our pressure release traction technique separates your discs from each other through a cycled and graduated manner that creates negative intradiscal pressure (or a vacuum effect). This promotes a diffusion of water, oxygen, and nutrients inside the injured disc, which allows healing to ensue.
Our medical doctors and chiropractic physicians at Atlanta Medical Clinic would be happy to show you how to relieve your lower back pain and improve your health and mobility.
