What treatments do most patients do for lower back pain?

The answer is…. not effective treatments such as Chiropractic, Decompression therapy or acupuncture in North Portland OR. The real answer is pharmaceuticals to decrease the pain immediately. This is the world we live in… In America we want that quick fix and want to get rid of the pain as quickly as we can. There are only two countries in the world where you can market pharmaceuticals on TV and that is America and New Zealand. Other countries are not bombarded with these pharmaceutical commercials pushing pain meds as the number one option.

I believe Chiropractic and Decompression disc therapy should be the first line of defense for chronic low back pain. These treatments are non-invasive and inexpensive and they go to the root cause of the problem.

Chiropractic therapy utilizes light forces to mobilize fixated joints that put pressure on a joint, nerve or disc. Chiropractic therapy has been around for 100 years and is covered by most insurance carriers due to studies showing its effectiveness for chronic conditions such as chronic low back pain, sciatica and headaches.

It is possible to have chronic low back pain caused by multiple issues such as disc problems, irritated nerves such as radiculopathy, and even chronically tight muscles are perpetuating the patient’s current condition….. the answer is YES

What is decompression therapy in North Portland OR?

Decompression therapy is defined by a traction force at a specific angle to the disc to allow a pumping action to rehydrate the disc. There are two forces applied at different time periods. This is the mechanism utilized to create negative pressure within the disc to allow healing

The next time you have low back pain, ask yourself… What is the root cause. Is the problem a disc, is the problem a nerve, is the problem of a fixated joint. If you go to the root cause or causes you can address the painful symptoms.
