Of all the reasons people come to see us at Summit Chiropractic in Orlando, FL, back pain and neck pain are two of the most common complaints. Check out five of our most commonly used techniques below!
A chiropractic adjustment is a gentle yet targeted touch from our chiropractor’s hands. It can relieve back pain and neck pain by realigning spinal joints and stimulating the central nervous system to release natural pain relievers. This can help relax muscles in spasms and reduce pressure on spinal nerves and injured discs.
Massage accelerates healing and enhances the effects of chiropractic adjustments by stimulating the relaxation of tense tissues, breaking up mobility-limiting scar tissue, and enhancing blood flow and lymphatic flow in injured areas. And since stress is a common factor related to back pain and neck pain, the stress-busting effects of massage is just as beneficial for your symptoms!
Whether you have an acute or chronic neck or back pain, the way you eat will drastically influence the health of your spinal tissues. Our chiropractor has spent a lot of time studying the literature from the nutrition world and can help you devise a solid and sustainable diet full of all the nutrients and supplements you need for optimal expression of health and healing.
There’s no one-size-fits-all exercise program. Our chiropractors can teach you the best exercises to improve core strength and stability, restore spinal range of motion, improve postural awareness, and facilitate tissue healing.
A traditional healing art, acupuncture stimulates so-called “trigger points” in the body and can trigger relaxation and healing in connective tissues within the spine.
