10 Simple Tips to Manage Your Chronic Pain

Lower Back Pain: Can A Chiropractor Help?

Athletes everywhere rely on their bodies to push and pull them through the most competitive tasks. Any handicap can spell the difference between victory and defeat. When it comes down to it, pain is more than a burden, it’s a disadvantage, one that gives opponents an extra step.

It’s no secret that athletes play through pain every single day. But, they shouldn’t have to play that way and at NorthEast Spine & Sports Medicine, we’re doing everything we can to ensure that sports players don’t have to live that reality. Here at NorthEast Spine & Sports Medicine, our focus has always been on providing the greatest levels of care around; it’s lead us to an integrated approach, one that encompasses a number of treatment styles.

Lower back pain is something thousands of athletes experience. Regardless of the level of competition, a lumbar herniated disc or other lower back injury can be a serious impediment to movement, even more so to an athlete who depends on their abilities to compete. A lower back injury is a common injury that can occur as a result of cardiovascular exercise, sport, weightlifting, or a number of other activities.

Chiropractic Help

By adjusting the spine, a chiropractor can relieve pressure in the lumbar area and align discs to ensure that weight is distributed properly throughout the body. Chiropractors have long been trusted by professional athletes because they help to make sure that bones and joints are properly aligned, relieving tension or pain, and helping to protect against further injury.

How?

Firstly, chiropractors use a technique called spinal manipulation, commonly referred to as an “adjustment,” where the specialist quickly moves an abnormally placed vertebra back in place restoring range of motion and proper alignment.

Secondly, chiropractors use a technique called mobilization which moves and stretches the affected area to further increase range of motion.

What Else Do They Do?

As spinal specialists, chiropractors mainly work on the back. Their techniques have been studied to treat various conditions including:

  • Sciatica
  • Leg pain
  • Neck pain
  • Headaches
  • Sports injuries
  • Arthritic pain
  • Numerous other injuries and ailments.

NorthEast Spine & Sports Medicine takes an integrated approach to treating athletic injuries. To learn more about what we offer or our chiropractic services, please browse our site or reach out to our office closest to your home in Central Jersey.
