You need your back to be strong and healthy to help you navigate your day—especially if you have a job that requires heavy lifting or strenuous activity. But approximately 26 million Americans between the ages of 20 to 64 suffer with chronic or frequent back pain. It often develops over time or due to general aging, or sometimes starts due to a one-time injury. Learn about some of the various treatment options offered by the chiropractors at Bee Caves Scoliosis Center LLC in Austin, TX.
Active Therapeutic Movements
The BackProject® Corporation offers a back pain remedy that keeps the body in motion until pain is relieved. The patient is placed in an apparatus that promotes continuous movement of the muscles in the back (called Neuro-Muscular Repetition), which help train the body to operate pain-free.
Whole Body Vibration Therapy
This therapy offered by your Austin, TX chiropractor helps stop pain by vibrating a force upward through the body. The patient stands on a machine that creates the vibrating motions and stimulates the muscles to promote back pain relief. This therapy is also used for strength training in athletes.
Electric Muscle Stimulation
Your chiropractor can also help you relieve your back pain using electric muscle stimulation. The patient lies down, as if getting a massage, and electric signals are sent directly to the area of the back that’s causing problems. The goal is to stimulate the muscles in a way that blocks the sensation of pain—the muscles contract and then relax, giving the patient relief.
The chiropractic team at Bee Caves Scoliosis Center LLC uses a back pain solution called the Kennedy Decompression Technique. It is a traction therapy that stretches the spine to relieve pressure on the spinal disks and nerves that may be causing the pain.
