Back pain is truly an uncomfortable experience that ranges from slight aches to the inability to move without experiences sharp pains. Back pain is something that affect many Americans, and the ability to complete even mundane tasks becomes difficult. This is because back pain affects everything we do. Chiropractors Dr. George Kollias, Dr. Autumn Scaz, and Dr. Elissa Pally at Sheldon Road Chiropractic & Massage Therapy in Tampa, FL are ready to attend to any of your concerns and relieve your back pain.
Chiropractors can help back pain in the following ways:
- Manual Therapy. If a joint is not functioning appropriately, Dr. George Kollias would use manual therapy techniques to help the joint regain some function and mobility. This can include joint mobilizations via slow stretches of the joint, or through manipulation, which is a quicker but gentle motion that also stretches out the affected joint.
- Soft Tissue Therapy. Your chiropractor focuses on relaxing tight or sore muscles, and there are many ways to do so. Manual therapy is one way, but there is also trigger point therapy and soft tissue therapy using instruments. Trigger point therapy works by applying pressure on the tightest part of the muscle, and instrument-guided soft tissue therapy uses a tool or tools to apply pressure.
- Exercise Therapy or Self Management. Dr. George Kollias is able to give you a few exercises that you would be able to do in the comfort of your own home to relieve your back pain. This would also include methods that can aid you to have better posture so as to prevent the onset of more back pain.
