If you are currently experiencing back pain and have been for more than two consecutive weeks, you should ask our doctors about Chiropractic Therapy.
The primary goal of Chiropractic Therapy is to relieve pain, improve mobility, and to prevent some physical relapse from occurring in the future.
Understanding Chiropractic Therapy
Most Chiropractic Therapy programs that are used to treat back pain consist of two specific components:
- Passive therapy
- Active exercise
Passive Chiropractic Therapy
Our Chiropractors will focus on providing immediate pain relief using passive treatment solutions that can include:

Active Chiropractic Therapy
Active Chiropractic Therapy refers to intense exercise, which is vital for complete rehabilitation.

Your Chiropractor will suggest some controlled exercises that help you to loosen up the muscles that are overstrained and damaged.
A few specific stretches that are effective for back pain relief include:
- Lying knee twists Placing your knee to your chest when laying down
- Cat/Cow yoga positions

Similar to the frequency around stretching, you will also need to follow through with some aerobic exercise at least three times a week for 30 minutes each session.
How Chiropractic Therapy Relieves Low Back Pain
The stability of your lumbar spine is dependent on your stomach, abdomen, and the musculature of your lower back area.
The muscles in your abdomen help stabilize your lumbar spine through their ability to support the anterior column of your spine (from the front side).
Your low back muscles stabilize your lumbar spine from the back and provide posterior support.
Chiropractic Therapy helps relieve back pain by strengthening the discs and muscles that surround your spine.
