  1. 1. http://www.hqbk.com/ 1-718-769-2521 Chiropractic Manipulation Can Treat Low Back Pain Effectively Reports say that chiropractic manipulation is one of the most effective treatments for low back pain. Back pain is what usually brings people to a chiropractic specialist. Approximately 80% of people in the U.S. experience some form of low back pain at least once in their lives. Low back pain is the most common complaint for chiropractic treatment. Chiropractic adjustments reduce wear and tear of joints and ligaments by maintaining their proper positioning. Chiropractic care improves strength and mobility to enhance general function and the quality of life. Chiropractic manipulation involves physical manipulation of the spine to relieve pain by relying on the body’s natural recuperative powers.

More than half said the pain severely limited their daily routine for a week or longer and 88 percent said it recurred throughout the year. How a Chiropractor Helps with Your Back Pain Spinal health depends on proper alignment of the spinal column. Misalignments in the spine, known as subluxations can interrupt the electrical impulse flow from the brain to the nerve structures, resulting in both pain and lower immune response. At a professional health care center, the chiropractor will conduct orthopedic, neurological and muscular tests including diagnostic imaging to determine your suitability for chiropractic treatment. A physical examination is performed to evaluate the joints, ligaments, muscles and tendons of the lower spine and pelvic areas. The treatment involves manual adjustment of the spinal joints to remove subluxations and restore normal nerve function. During joint manipulation and adjustments, "cracking" or "popping" sounds are usually heard. These sounds are generated when gases are freed from the joint fluid during rapid distraction of the joint surfaces. The http://www.hqbk.com/ 1-718-769-2521

The time for recovery and return to full function would depend on factors such as your specific condition and its severity. It is important that you are committed to the treatment plan and follow the home care instructions that your chiropractor recommends.
