5 Common Chiropractic Techniques for Back and Neck Pain

back and neck pain

Many people in Vancouver, WA experience minor neck and back pain at some point in their lives. However, for some, this pain can become chronic and severely impact their quality of life. If you're struggling with back or neck pain, a chiropractor may be able to help. Here are five of the most common chiropractic techniques used at Davis Family Chiropractic and Massage, PLLC to relieve back and neck pain.

Spinal Manipulation

Spinal manipulation is one of the most common chiropractic techniques. This treatment involves applying pressure to the spine to realign the vertebrae. This can help to relieve pain, improve range of motion, and reduce inflammation.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is often used in conjunction with spinal manipulation to relieve back pain. The massage therapist will use various strokes and pressure points to release muscle tension and relax the muscles surrounding the spine.

True Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression on the DRX9000

The DRX 9000™ is FDA approved and uses state-of-the-art technology to gradually relieve neurocompression from disc herniations often associated with lower back pain or sciatica. The process has been proven to relieve pain by enlarging disc space, reducing herniation, strengthening outer ligaments to help move herniated areas back into place, and reversing high intradiscal pressures through application of negative pressure.

Spinal Tractioning on the Posture Pump™

In conjunction with other methods listed above, patients often gain relief from utilizing the Posture Pump™ for spinal tractioning. Multiple MRI Studies show that this type of neck tractioning decreases disc bulges and spinal cord indentions while enhancing normal neck and back curves and spinal ranges of motion.

Flexion - Distraction

Flexion Distraction (also know as Cox Technique) is a chiropractic technique used to treat many conditions of the lumbar spine (lower back). It is a non-surgical technique aimed at increasing spinal motion and improving overall function by reducing disc bulges and disc herniations.
