Sciatica Treatments

Have you recently experienced a back injury? Are you suffering from acute or chronic back pain detrimental to your quality of life? Back pain can be related to a number of causes, including whiplash, bulging or herniated discs, spinal stenosis (a narrowing of the spinal canal), degenerative disc disease, pinched nerve, sciatica, and osteoarthritis. Chiropractic care is an outstanding holistic treatment modality for back injuries. Chiropractors provide back injury rehab through noninvasive and nonsurgical services that can minimize or eliminate the patient’s need for potentially addictive prescription painkillers. For patients living in Port Orchard, WA, Action Chiropractic provides personalized care to treat injuries from automobile accidents, work-related incidents, and sports mishaps. Dr. Brian C. Willyard has been serving patients in Port Orchard since 1997, specializing in neck pain and providing compassionate and skilled back injury rehab incurred from work injuries, automobile accidents, age-related degeneration, and sports injuries.

How Does Chiropractic Care Assist Back Injury Rehab?

Chiropractic care offers a variety of treatments that address issues related to the musculoskeletal system to help individuals experience natural pain relief and enhanced healing. Action Chiropractic in Port Orchard offers services that include spinal adjustments, spinal decompression, traction, chiropractic massage therapy, cryotherapy, myofascial release, and recommended therapeutic exercises to help patients.

Spinal adjustments, also known as chiropractic manipulation, use gentle or robust thrusting movements to realign the spinal column and the surrounding structures. Spinal adjustments are excellent for relieving pressure on the nerves, which helps minimize pain related to back injuries. Chiropractic back injury rehab also uses spinal decompression therapy to slowly stretch out the spine by creating negative intradiscal pressure, allowing the spine to reposition itself and reduce pressure on the discs. Chiropractic traction is another widely used treatment for spinal, skeletal, and muscular pain. Traction uses tension and manual pressure applied to the patient’s limbs to stretch the skeleton and muscles. This process creates space between the vertebrae and helps alleviate pain due to compressed nerves and dysfunctions of the ligaments and muscles.

Massage therapy has numerous benefits for patients experiencing back pain, including decreased muscle stiffness and joint inflammation, improved flexibility and range of motion, enhanced circulation, myofascial release, and strengthening of the immune system. Ice pack cryotherapy may also be recommended to reduce inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, and pain.
