Lower back pain is the most common pain that people experience. During any three-month period, approximately 25% of Americans will report experiencing lower back pain and it is one of the leading causes of disability worldwide, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
Led by the talented and experienced father-son duo, Dr. Robert Zahn and Dr. Ross Zahn, Zahn Chiropractic Clinic, Shreveport can help treat lower back pain using both chiropractic care and non-surgical spinal decompression.
Chiropractic care involves the use of manual manipulation and the most common treatment is spinal manipulation. This involves your chiropractor using their hands (or sometimes a handheld device) to apply controlled thrusts to one of the joints in your spine in a way that moves it beyond the range that it normally would move. The reasoning behind this treatment is that when your spine is out of alignment, this can cause pain and impaired function both in your back and throughout the rest of your body.
Chiropractic care is an effective treatment for lower back pain and is recommended by the American College of Physicians as a therapeutic option that can help both acute and chronic lower back pain. Chiropractic care for lower back pain can lower disability and improve your ability to move your back, reduce your level of pain, and reduce your need for pain medication. It also has very few side effects and can help to improve your well-being in a variety of other ways.
This type of spinal decompression differs from surgical spinal decompression in that it is completely non-invasive. It works on the same principles as traction, which has been used for a long time, but it takes a more precise and technical approach. With non-surgical spinal decompression, a computerized and motorized table is used. You are strapped to the table and it is set to precisely stretch your spine in the exact places that are causing your lower back pain.
Non-surgical spinal decompression is especially effective for lower back pain that is caused by bulging or herniated discs, as well as bony growths, sciatica, and other spinal/nerve problems. It can treat these through two different processes:
1) It creates negative pressure between the discs in your vertebrae which pulls the bulging disc material back into place.
2) It creates a lower pressure in the disc which can draw healing nutrients into the area.
This treatment can help to reduce the pain, weakness, numbness, and tingling associated with these types of spinal/nerve issues. Before your treatment, your medical history will be taken to make sure that you are a good candidate for non-surgical spinal decompression and, if you are, you can expect little-to-no side effects afterward.
