Our doctor explains the many alternative, non-invasive, and comfortable methods chiropractic medicine offers patients incredible and welcome pain relief.
Commonly Used Chiropractic Treatments
Dr. Russo serves the residents of Suwanee and surrounding communities suffering from low back pain. The focus of chiropractic treatments is to keep the spine as aligned as possible to ensure that the patient has little to no pain or discomfort.
When the spine is not in alignment, it creates pain and discomfort in the neck, back, hips, legs, and arms. The more commonly used chiropractic treatment options are as follows and should never be used by anyone except a certified, licensed doctor of chiropractic medicine.
- Manual specific chiropractic adjustments of the spine restore the function of the spine. The doctor uses a gentle motion with stretching along the spine. This technique helps the joints in the spine to improve flexibility.
- Flexion distraction is helpful for those suffering from lower back pain, sciatica, or disc injuries. This technique improves the flexion of the spine when the doctor manually manipulates the vertebrae, thus, the position of the spine and removing pressure from the disc on the nerve running through the spine.
- Chiropractic doctors use extremity manipulation to manipulate joints other than those found in the spine. The doctor may manually work the shoulder, elbow, hip, or knee joints. When other significant joints are aligned and kept healthy, it causes less spinal stress. The doctor uses this technique for carpal tunnel patients or posture-related issues.
It is good to remember that there is no pain or discomfort in any chiropractic treatment. However, sometimes you may feel a temporary increase in soreness the next day. Chiropractic treatments have been proven effective against many pain issues. Sometimes, it is natural to feel a bit worse before you notice the complete effectiveness of pain relief or elimination of pain.
