What is this back pain I’m feeling?
Your spine is made up of 24 moveable bones called vertebra. These vertebra protect your spinal cord. The tissues surrounding the vertebra are interwoven with nerve tissue. If these vertebra are not moving right they can cause painful symptoms imposed on delicate nerve tissue. Pain is your body’s alarm system. You feel pain because something is not right. While you can take aspirin for immediate relief, the pain may return and taking more aspirin won’t cure the problem.
What can chiropractic care in Indianapolis IN do?
A chiropractic doctor is well schooled at detecting these misalignments and fixations and moving the offending vertebra into it’s correct position. Your body then does the healing itself. There are many issues that can cause your back pain, including vertebra misalignments, thinning discs, spinal bone degeneration, tight muscles, and even your boss. A chiropractor can help find what is the source of your pain and rehabilitate the issue.
Why am I feeling back pain?
Your spine has 24 interlinked, movable bones (vertebrae) that protect your spinal cord and stabilize your body. The soft tissues surrounding your vertebrae contain nerves that come off the spinal cord to spread through your body.
If any vertebrae aren't moving correctly, they can put pressure on the delicate nerve tissue, producing back pain. Common causes of back pain include:
- Subluxations (vertebral misalignments)
- Thinning discs
- Spinal bone degeneration
- Tight muscles
Dr. Yoder can find the source of your pain and rehabilitate your spine.
What can chiropractic care do for back pain?
Pain is the body's alarm system, telling you that something's not right. Taking pain medication offers temporary relief but doesn't get to the cause of your condition. When the drugs wear off, your pain comes back. No matter how many medicines you take, they won't cure the problem.
Chiropractic doctors like Dr. Yoder receive extensive training that enables them to detect spinal misalignments and move the affected vertebra back into its correct position. Once the spine is in alignment, your body does the rest of the healing itself.
What methods are used to treat back pain?
Chiropractic techniques for back pain involve making adjustments to the vertebrae using swift, controlled movements. Traditionally, this is done by hand. The chiropractor feels the misalignment through your skin and performs the adjustments with precise hand movements.
At Meridian Chiropractic Clinic, Dr. Yoder is now using state-of-the-art ProAdjuster technology to make this process even more accurate and comfortable.
ProAdjuster involves a small instrument that scans each vertebra, using echoing sound waves to find the misalignments in your spine. It then displays the results on a computer screen.
Having located the area that needs treating, ProAdjuster makes the adjustment so quickly that all you feel is a slight tap. Dr. Yoder doesn't need to twist or manipulate your spine at all.
How does ProAdjuster relieve back pain?
When Dr. Yoder examines your spine, he's looking for incorrect movement or rigidity in the vertebrae. He expertly pinpoints which bones require treatment, then uses the ProAdjuster sensor to fix the precise location and deliver a pulse of energy. The pulse happens so fast your muscles don't have time to react.
Using ProAdjuster, Dr. Yoder is able to deliver consistent, comfortable adjustments that effectively relieve the cause of your back pain.
