5 Common Chiropractic Techniques For Back and Neck Pain

5 Common Chiropractic Techniques for Back and Neck Pain

At Bakke Chiropractic Clinic, our chiropractor has years of experience treating the back pain and neck pain of Tacoma residents. When your first visit our clinic, our chiropractor will assess your musculoskeletal system to identify what is causing your pain before creating a chiropractic care plan to address it. Our chiropractor draws upon several different techniques to provide back pain and neck pain treatment.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy releases tight muscles and improves circulation in affected areas. Following massage therapy, you will experience immediate relief and an improved range of motion. Since massage therapy targets specific muscles and muscle groups, it is especially useful in back pain treatment.

Flexion-Distraction Method

This is used when the patient has a condition such as scoliosis or disc herniation that brings about back and neck pain. This technique stretches and realigns the back and spine. There is clinical proof that this technique relieves facet joint dysfunction.

Thompson Technique

A drop table is used to allow our chiropractor to perform more precise adjustments. The table has a padded surface and this together with the dropping action makes for a more comfortable procedure.

Soft Tissue Therapy

Rather than focus on the spine, this type of therapy uses places gentle pressure on inflamed joints as an indirect form of spinal manipulation. This technique improves circulation and helps the body get rid of toxins.

Gonstead Technique

This is the procedure most people imagine when they think of going to a chiropractor. Our chiropractor often requires patients to turn onto their side as manual adjustments are performed. Chiropractic adjustments will relieve your pain, improve your range of motion, and enhance your body’s natural healing process.
