Relief Is Right Around the Corner
Lower back pain is a frequent health problem in the United States and it’s the main source of disability for people aged 45 and younger. Many of those are disabled because they decided to go untreated for too long. This results in more serious spine disorders and untreatable complications. The best approach is to treat the source of the pain early and maintain strength to prevent relapse injuries.
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)
- Chiropractic care
- Physical therapy
- Spinal decompression
- Laser therapy
When you come to our clinic, one of our doctors will perform a thorough history and exam to determine what you need to get back to your everyday activities as soon as possible.
Interventional Pain Management
For advanced lower back pain or acute injuries, our medical doctors may use injection-based therapy to minimize inflammation and accelerate healing with image-guided pinpoint injection treatments. From nerve blocks to low dose corticosteroids, our objective is to relieve your pain quickly to then begin working on rehabilitation of the surrounding muscles and soft tissues between the vertebrae.
Our chiropractic physicians use a variety of methods to treat lower back pain. A common treatment for lower back pain is a spinal manipulation or an adjustment. Chiropractic adjustments repair spine and nervous system function to reduce pain and help with healing. Atlanta Medical patients who sought chiropractic care for lower back pain were more improved and far more satisfied with their chiropractic care after one month of chiropractic adjustments than patients who didn’t.
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.
