This is a condition everyone in the world is probably going to have at some stage in their lives according to this site. Lower back pain most of the time is of a mechanical cause, but of course can be bone pain from cancer. If you have backache in your lumbar spine then a non-pharmaceutical approach would be to have manual therapy. Most people think only of the physiotherapist however there are another group of doctors called chiropractors.
A chiropractor is rained to assess and treat spinal pain and conditions. They don’t prescribe mediation and they don’t perform injections or back surgery. These are a alternative doctors trained at universities around the world with Chiropractic degree.
Having seen some chiropractors recently on a trip I got to learn more about this healthcare profession. I learnt that they have a variety of treatment techniques. This includes the “adjustment” which is when they click your spine as a primary treatment modality. However, they won’t always use this option and can perform spinal manipulation using a tool called an activator. This medical device uses mechanical vibration to stimulate the joints which in turn stimulate the nerve. Relaxing a pinched nerve can help relax muscle spasm in the back. They also use mobilisation, massage, electrical therapies like ultrasound, inter-ferrential current or low-level laser therapy.
I was very happy with my consultation and treatment which included some handy back exercises, stretches and lifestyle tips. To learn more about what is Chiropractic visit this website http://chiroclinic.co.za
