Lower Back Pain

In this article, we will discuss the benefits of chiropractic care as a low-back pain treatment, and how Dr. Peterson of Peterson Chiropractic in Durham can help you reduce pain and enhance mobility through various chiropractic techniques.


Chiropractic Adjustments Relieve Pain

Chiropractic adjustments involve spinal manipulation, a type of manual therapy that has proven to be both safe and effective at relieving pain. Dr. Peterson employs various techniques to adjust the spine and other body parts to restore proper function and alignment throughout the vertebral column joints, muscles, and bones.

Low back pain treatment with chiropractic adjustments is essential to relieve symptoms and protect against future issues. Dr. Peterson may also suggest simple yet effective ways to keep your body healthy, such as avoiding activities that aggravate the pain, drinking plenty of water, and exercising regularly.

Chiropractic Care Reduces Stress

A chiropractic adjustment effectively treats low back pain, relieving pressure off muscles and nerves. This reduces stress and promotes a greater sense of well-being. Dr. Peterson employs a range of techniques to adjust your spine. One common technique is spinal manipulation, which may produce an audible "pop" sound when completed. However, depending on your condition, Dr. Peterson may use a more gentle technique called spinal mobilization instead.

Chiropractic Visits Can Improve Your Sleep

Chiropractic adjustments have been known to improve sleep by relieving pain and inflammation, stimulating nervous system function, and increasing blood flow. These improvements lead to more restful nights of sleep for patients who also report feeling more energetic after receiving treatment. Adjustments are a safe, drug-free, non-invasive low back pain treatment that can be used to address various conditions.

Reduces Inflammation

Studies have shown that chiropractic adjustments can decrease inflammation markers such as interleukin-6 (IL-6), C-reactive protein (CRP), and immunoglobulins. Chronic inflammation plays a significant role in developing various diseases and conditions, such as asthma, allergies, arthritis, obesity, and certain cancers.

Eating nutritiously, exercising regularly, and maintaining an ideal weight are all vital for relieving inflammation. Physical activity can reduce inflammation by strengthening the muscles and tendons surrounding your joints, facilitating faster recovery from back injuries.

Increases Flexibility

Chiropractic care can increase flexibility through spinal adjustments and corrective manual manipulations, which may be combined with physical or massage therapies. Studies have demonstrated that chiropractic care can enhance your flexibility and range of motion, ultimately improving your performance in sports.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I was diagnosed by an orthopedic surgeon with a buldging disc. I was in constant pain. There were times it was painful to turn over in bed. I could not bend to tie my shoes. The most painful thing was that my active lifestyle was completely changing. I could not play golf or exercise without pain. I was treated by a physical therapist, and then a chiropractor for about nine months. This treatment temporarily relieved a lot of my pain. Dr. Peterson told me the DRX-9000 had helped others with my condition. After the first two weeks of painless treatment I could tell a difference. I now play golf without pain. I just played in a three day tournament. I can even tie my own shoes. I do recommend this treatment."
