Nonsurgical Relief for Your Back Pain in Tampa, FL

For mild back pain, you can use over-the-counter pain relievers, cold or warm compressions, and rest. If your pain is more severe or is not getting better, visit your chiropractors for diagnosis and treatment.

Surgery is a last resort for treating back pain. There are actually a variety of non-invasive treatments that can get you feeling your best.

Spinal Decompression Therapy

Spinal decompression therapy is also known as nonsurgical decompression, and it is a non-invasive treatment that gently stretches the spine using motorized equipment or a traction table. It can help if you are suffering from arthritis, spinal injuries, herniated discs, pain from surgery, and posterior facet syndrome by relieving pain in the back or legs. It works by easing the pressure placed on the nerves and spine.

Laser Therapy

We offer hot and cold laser therapy to reduce back pain. Cold lasers work using a light that stimulates new tissue growth and works on a cellular level. This reduces inflammation, which will decrease pain and give you a better range of motion. MLS laser, on the other hand, uses heat to reduce swelling and inflammation.

If you suffer from back pain in Tampa, FL, you can find relief and get your full range of motion back with the help of your chiropractors. Call Dr. Kollias, Dr. Scaz, and Dr. Pally of Sheldon Road Chiropractic & Massage Therapy at (813) 884-1457 to schedule an appointment.
