More than half of us will have back pain in any given year. It causes lost productivity, much disability and suffering and the effects on people’s lives are very far reaching. Back pain is simply one of the most common reasons for absenteeism from work and a major reason for visiting a medical doctor who, unfortunately, often feels frustrated as all he can do is medicate to alleviate symptoms.
Back pain is one of the main reasons why people visit ICC and we are exceptionally well equipped to deal with this potentially devastating problem.With this condition there can be many complicating factors including muscle imbalance, disc prolapse, arthritic change and pinched nerves. Unfortunately, it is usually a functional problem and most interventions do not correct the cause. Subsequently, many unnecessary surgeries become necessary.
At the International Chiropractic Clinic, we have a different approach based on improving the function of your spine and thus promoting healing. During a full consultation, which includes a thorough case history and any necessary orthopedic and neurological exams, we first determine whether or not you are a suitable candidate for the spinal rehabilitation procedures we employ in our clinic. If necessary, we will organize X-Rays in order that we can actually see the changes that are happening to your spine. Once we are happy that we have all the necessary information to give you the very best care, we will then outline the recommended treatment.
We use specific spinal manipulations or ‘adjustments’, DTS Decompression Therapy (an advanced and effective form of traction), flexion-distraction and spinal flexibility and stability exercises to improve spinal function and ensure the excellent results we consistently achieve. By restoring the way your spine works, discs and soft tissues may heal, nerve involvement may be reduced, pain can ease and better stability can return.
Our success in helping our clients balance their spines and thus alleviate back pain is well documented and over the last twenty years Dr Chris has helped thousands of patients to live a pain-free life and many avoid risky surgery.
