Nashua NH Chiropractors Treat Back Pain with Conservative Chiropractic Care
Nearly every American will suffer from back pain at some point in their lives, but that doesn’t mean we have to accept this pain as inevitable. Our Nashua NH chiropractor Dr. Jerrilyn Sullivan has been freeing patients from back pain for more than a decade within Nashua, Hollis, Brookline, and Pepperell, NH. Our chiropractic care team is experienced in a wide variety of safe, effective conservative adjustment techniques including the Palmer Technique, chiropractic biophysics, the Diversified technique, the Activator technique, Impulse IQ adjusting, sacro-occipital technique (SOT), the Gonstead Technique, motion palpitation, and the Pierce Technique. This information will help you learn more about how these different adjustments techniques can make a difference for your pain.
Drug-Free Back Pain Relief Starts with the Right Chiropractic Technique
Palmer Technique: This manual manipulation method is a classic chiropractic adjustment technique for drug-free back pain relief. Our goal during the adjustment process is to identify subluxations in the spine (areas where the spine is out of alignment) and gently restore correct alignment. A slipped or herniated disc can compress nearby nerves and trigger pain. Chiropractic adjustments like the Palmer Technique help to restore correct alignment and thereby alleviate nerve compression for long-lasting back pain relief.
Diversified: This is the most commonly used manual adjustment technique that delivers a high-velocity, low-amplitude thrust to specific places along the spine. The Diversified technique focuses on restoring proper movement and alignment to the spine in order to alleviate the joint dysfunction that is associated with chronic back pain, including sciatica.
Activator: The Activator method is one of the most widely research instrument adjustment techniques with clinical trials supporting its efficacy. This technique delivers precise adjustments to the spine to alleviate nerve compression for long-lasting back pain relief.
Impulse IQ: The Impulse IQ chiropractic technique uses a small, handheld adjustment instrument to deliver gentle, precise adjustments to relieve back pain. Since this instrument adjustment technique is very gentle, it is a good treatment option for older patients or patients who prefer non-manual adjustments.
Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT): This commonly used chiropractic technique treats focuses on the cranial sacral respiratory mechanism, which is the wavelike oscillation in the covering of the brain and spinal cord. While this movement is subtle, it is essential for the normal functioning of the brain and spinal cord, and consequently, the entire body. Using specialized chiropractic manipulative reflex techniques (CRMT) that focus primarily on the cranial bones and cranial structures, our chiropractor will normalize organ function in your body with the goal of long-lasting, drug-free back pain relief.
Gonstead Technique: This chiropractic adjustment technique focuses on restoring correct alignment to the body’s foundation through the pelvic girdle. When the pelvic girdle is level, the body benefits from maximum spinal cord stability and alignment. Should the pelvic girdle be rotated or otherwise misaligned, lower back pain can occur. While misaligned vertebra are easily recognized in the upper portion of the back, they are much more difficult to recognize in the lower portion. By focusing on the lower back and pelvic region, the Gonstead Technique helps to ensure correct alignment along the entire spinal column.
Pierce Technique: Also known as the “Pierce Results System”, this treatment approach starts with a detailed diagnostic analysis of vertebral subluxations. Using X-rays, our chiropractors will determine the precise angle of misalignment and appropriate treatment to restore correct spinal positioning. The benefits of this approach for back pain relief include a detailed diagnostic exam for evaluating spinal motion and alignment.
Our chiropractic team understands just how frustrating back pain can be, especially if you have unsuccessfully tried other treatments. By offering a wide variety of treatment techniques, our chiropractors are able to design a custom treatment program to meet the unique needs of each and every patient from Nashua, Hollis, Brookline, and Pepperell, NH.
