Chiropractic Care for Back Pain

If you’re suffering from back pain, you might be concerned that your only hope for relief is to rely on medication or resign yourself to a surgical procedure. There is another option, though – one that can provide natural and lasting back pain relief. Learn below how a chiropractor like Dr. Wilson at Hastings Family Chiropractic in Hastings, NE, help patients achieve this relief.

Thorough Assessment and Examination

Your spinal column is made up of many separate yet interworking components. These include the bones, muscles, spinal discs, nerves, ligaments, and tendons. Before diving into treatment, a comprehensive examination is performed to determine where the root of your pain lies. This knowledge helps inform how you need to be treated.


Adjustments are integral to restoring the alignment of the spine. Proper alignment removes pressure from surrounding spinal column components, which typically eliminates the source of pain.

Intersegmental Traction

Intersegmental traction can also play a critical role. This technique uses a specialized table with rollers. As the rollers move up and down the spine, they create space between the bones and remove pressure from the discs and nerves. Once this space is created, alignment can be more fully achieved and maintained.

Soft Tissue Techniques

Some back pain is due to injuries directly in the soft tissues. Other cases of back pain can be caused by a misalignment that puts strain and pressure on the soft tissues. In both cases, soft tissue techniques such as chiropractic massage, therapeutic ultrasound, cold laser therapy, and electrical muscle stimulation can relieve the pain and help stimulate recovery.

Therapeutic Exercise

Therapeutic exercises can be used to address several issues. They are often used to improve posture, which is important for spinal wellness. They are also used to strengthen the core to provide better support for the spine. Additionally, they are often used to stretch tense areas and improve spinal alignment.

Nutritional Counseling

Many chiropractors provide nutritional counseling in back pain treatment plans, but the reasons can differ depending on the patient. For example, since excess weight can cause back pain, nutritional guidance is sometimes used to aid in weight loss. Additionally, specific foods can also be used to fight inflammation as well as improve muscular and bone health.
