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:
Dr. Yoder can find the source of your pain and rehabilitate your spine.
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.
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.
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.
