What to Do for Low Back Pain
Movement-based strategies such as spinal adjustments, controlled exercise, and dynamic stretching are a few of the most effective ways to relieve low back issues.
Over the last 15 years as a low back pain chiropractor in Brooks, we’ve seen the results first-hand.
And not only are movement-based strategies good at providing fast relief, but research strongly suggests that such conservative care interventions may also offer a preventative effect when continued over time.
The use of heat, massage, acupuncture, mindfulness-based stress reduction, tai chi or yoga, micro-current, shockwave and low-level laser therapy can also be beneficial for both back-specific and overall function improvements as well as improvements in your overall health-related quality of life.
