Chiropractic Care from LA Orthopedic Group is a non-invasive approach to back pain.

The 24 independent vertebrae that make up the spine are designed to help with daily movements. While the spine and its supporting parts normally work well together, there are times when something is out of alignment.

  • Chiropractic care is performed with a series of therapeutic manipulations
  • It addresses problems in the musculoskeletal system and nervous system, including back pain, neck pain, and joint pain

How it Works

Most chiropractic treatments involve hands-on manipulations of the spine and areas around joints. The goal of chiropractic care is to improve circulation to tissues, improve range-of-motion, ease pain related to problems with soft tissues and connective tissues like ligaments and tendons, and correct issues with alignment.

The pressure applied during sessions will vary based on the area being treated and the comfort level of the patient. Practitioners also consider a patient’s medical history. Additional testing may be done to determine if the suspected problem is really the cause of a patient’s pain, or if there may be other contributing factors to consider. Ultimately, all treatments are based on an accurate diagnosis of a patient’s pain.

Which Conditions Are Treated

Nearly 40 percent of the 22 million Americans who seek chiropractic care annually in the United States do so because of back pain. Other common reasons for visits include cervical spine (neck) pain, sports-related injuries affecting joints, and muscle or nerve-related pain affecting legs and arms. Specifically, chiropractic care may ease discomfort related to:

  • Herniated discs
  • Degenerative disc disease (DDD)
  • Muscle tension or spasms in the lower back
  • Sciatica
  • Arthritis and osteoarthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Headaches
  • Hiatal hernias

Who Benefits from Chiropractic Care

Anybody with acute (sudden) or chronic pain lasting 3-4 months or more primarily affecting soft tissues may benefit from chiropractic care. It may not be helpful in situations where there’s a specific injury causing pain that would likely benefit from other treatments before chiropractic care is considered. In some instances, patients are referred to a chiropractor if initial treatment options such as resting the affected area, applying heat and/or ice, and using various pain and anti-inflammatory medications aren’t effective.

It’s believed chiropractic manipulations stimulate the release of endorphins that help naturally ease pain within the body. The relief experienced with treatments sometimes makes it easier for patients to particular in physical therapy sessions and may reduce dependence on some medications, including opiates that are meant to be used on a short-term basis. Some patients opt for chiropractic care to either put off surgery or eliminate the need for it altogether. Patients often benefit from treatment plans that include:

  • Customized exercise routines
  • Nutrition counseling
  • Specific short-term and long-term goals
  • Suggested lifestyle modifications

Chiropractic care isn’t meant to be substitute for other medical treatments. In fact, chiropractors often work with patients’ other doctors to determine what treatments have already been attempted and what results have been experienced. Everybody will have different results from chiropractic treatments. However, many patients do report improvements with posture, muscle flexibility, spinal alignment, and joint functioning.
