Lower Back Pain Treatment

 

lower back pain treatment

The American Chiropractic Association estimates that around 31 million Americans suffer from lower back pain daily.  Those who suffer from this condition will look for medical, surgical, and therapeutic options to alleviate the pain and enable them to perform their daily tasks.  Chiropractors estimate that $50 million dollars a year is spent on treatment and therapies to combat this problem.  While there are surgical and invasive treatments, most people would prefer not to go that route.  Complementary therapists have developed many alternative therapies for lower back pain, some to treat the symptoms, others to address the cause.  One approach is to use manual manipulation or devices that will help to decompress the disks of the back and increase or open the flow of fluid into the spine.

Physical Therapy and Manual Manipulation

Some therapists address the muscles of the lower back while chiropractors use manual manipulation of the spine to adjust the bones and disks of the back.  Addressing the muscle tension will feel good temporarily, it doesn’t change the cause or root of the problem.  Back adjustments can help but they also require a lot of visits to the doctor and time off work.

Spine Decompression, Back Traction

Chiropractors tend to invest in the larger machines like the DRX9000 because they can adjust the spine more quickly than a table or mat.  However, more and more chiropractors and alternative therapy centers are investing in mats and tables because they are gentler method of reducing herniation.

DETENSOR® was created with the goal of correcting herniated disks.  We began with a simple design and improved upon it over time.  We have produced a mat that applies a maximum traction force of 18% in spine.  This force helps to increase fluid flow by stretching the spinal column and in turn massaging the connective tissues.

Vertebral Column Reflexology

The vertebrates, which are padded and divided by spinal discs of cartilage are at that time apprehended organized with ligaments and linking processes. This construction lets the entire vertebral cord sufficient movement but confines movement amid individually bones. The openings among each vertebral element which let for the channel of the nerves are known as inter-vertebral foramina and allow for recurrent communication and guard as it relates to the backbone column. A profile of the vertebrae reveals four distinctive curves that are known as the lumbar section, the pelvic curve, the cervical section, and the thoracic section, named mainly for their position and the sort of vertebrate which are counted in the section.

The sacral curve, which is frequently named as the pelvic curve, holds it profile by the formation of the sacrum and coccyx. Without the tender curving of the spine, the human body would experience excessive strain in keeping an upright position besides finding a proper place of balance. Strength of the human body is directly determined by the curving of the upper part of the back and produces the bipedal posture that humans are comfortable to.

The infant figure is missing these important curves of the spine. The form of the fetus is retained by the pelvic and thoracic curves. Because of this, these are considered the primary curves. Curves that develop after birth are called the secondary curves. The cervical curve does not develop until an infant body begins to develop the strength to hold its own head up, around the age of three months. As an infant learns more skills, such as sitting up, the curvature of the spine begins to become more defined. When a baby learns to walk, the lumbar curve develops.

They say that it’s better to see once than hear 10 times. See we lay out 2 diagrams from which it is clear what part of the spine affects which organs and what vertebra is associated with those or other functions of the body.

regions of the vertebral column.

The vertebral column (spinal cord) consists of 26 vertebrae bones. It provides support for the head and trunk of the body, protection for the spinal cord, and connecting points for the ribs and muscles.

The human body is the mysterious wonders in the world. Nature has left nothing to chance, and the more we know, the safer we are for it because new connections between different parts of the body are being discovered every day.

The most significant example of this is the way in which the spinal column is connected to the organs of the body. This is surprising because the spine is made of bone and yet it influences the functioning of organs and muscles, like the lungs and heart.

Don’t think for a second that this connection is random. They have discovered exact points that are linked to very specific parts of our anatomy. As you can see, it’s no myth that the human body is a perfect machine. We’re sure that it still holds many more secrets that will leave us speechless.
