Chiropractic Treatment for Lower Back Pain from our Downtown Calgary Chiropractor
Our Downtown Calgary Chiropractor can diagnose the sources of your back pain and recommend a holistic treatment program to lower your pain and heal your injuries. Chiropractic care is conservative care. This means that we do not employ treatments that are invasive or advocate medications. Instead, we focus on helping your body heal itself.
The primary way we facilitate healing is through the chiropractic adjustment. A chiropractic adjustment is a short, quick thrust that is designed to push a misaligned vertebra back into its proper position. When the vertebrae in the spine are out of alignment, they move and function incorrectly. This causes inflammation of the soft tissues surrounding the misaligned vertebra. By realigning the vertebra, we are lowering your pain and reducing inflammation around your spine.
The second way we facilitate healing is through Active Release Therapy, which is a type of massage. During the session you will be asked to move or to hold certain poses while our chiropractor uses pressure to release the tissues and joints. Active Release Therapy helps break apart scar tissue, which helps increase range of motion of the joints and soft tissues.
