If you’re not yet in severe pain, great! You need to get help before you get to the point where you can’t even get out of the bed in the morning.
However, most people don’t take their pain seriously until it gets REALLY serious.
If you are currently in the SEVERE state, where you can’t even turn or bend without suffering from too much pain, then you need to continue reading below:
Chiropractic can help relieve back pain. No question about that. But for some people who can’t even get in and out of the bed because they are in so much pain, they may wonder: how can a Chiropractor “adjust” a VERY PAINFUL back.
Great question! As a nurse in a Chiropractic office, I ALWAYS see people in terrible pain. Some of them could not even open the door, some could not sit or stand or turn to their sides without exclaiming! For a chiropractor to manually adjust the spine, the patient needs to be in a chiropractic table and has to turn to 2 or 3 different positions. You can only imagine the pain if it’s the only way to adjust the spine.
Thanks to technology today, though, we have ways to adjust the spine without causing discomfort. Chiropractic instruments like the adjustor, percussor, and cold lasers are definitely helpful in cases of severe back pains.
- The Adjustor– helps get the spine re-aligned using simple percussing movements up and down the spine. For more information on the Adjustor, click here.
- The Percussor– vibrates to loosen the tight muscles in the back. Muscle spasms make it hard to re-align the bone so the Percussor is one of the most important tools every chiropractor should have. For more information on the Percussor, click here.
- Cold Lasers– helps the body heal a lot quicker. FDA approved Cold Lasers are also proven effective on decreasing inflammation and pain. For more information on cold lasers, click here.
You may be wondering… So, what can a patient with severe back pain expect on their first visit?
All these instruments and other tools our Chiropractor has in the office are so cool that our clients need not dread getting in and out of the table and shifting to different positions while they are still hurting big time. What we do is decrease the pain first using chiropractic instruments… Afterwards, when the client is ready for manual adjustments, the they are adjusted manually. (Just so we’re in the same page, manual adjustments are when you usually hear the “popping” or “cracking” of the back, followed by some instantaneous relief from pain.)
