Chiropractic Care For Lower Back Pain

Treatments like chiropractic care and spinal decompression are effective at relieving low back pain.

Lower Back Pain Relief Cape Girardeau, MO

Chiropractic care is a gentle treatment that uses hands-on manual techniques to realign vertebrae and take pressure off compressed nerves and tissues.

It can also ease lower back pain caused by sciatica. Spinal decompression is a process that uses a special piece of equipment that gently stretches the spine and creates negative pressure within the discs. This helps pull the herniated material back into the disc and allows for healing nutrients to flow into the disc.

Regenerative Medicine Treatments for Chronic, Severe Back Injuries and Conditions

If your back pain pain is more severe, advanced regenerative treatments like human cellular tissue and PRP therapy are recommended.

Human cellular tissue treatments consist of injections that contain powerful and potent healing compounds that help your body’s natural healing process relieve the underlying cause of your back pain.

Some of the compounds that are injected into your damaged back tissue include:

  • Cytokines
  • Proteins
  • Amino acids
  • Lipids
  • Exosomes
  • Growth factors
  • Hyaluronic acid
  • Collagen

PRP therapy refers to platelet-rich plasma, which is a non-surgical back pain treatment made from a sample of your own blood.

Once the blood is drawn, it is placed into a centrifuge, where it is spun to separate the red blood cells from the platelets.

The resulting PRP is concentrated with healing properties that are injected into your injured back to help facilitate healing.

Both of these advanced treatments are minimally invasive and require little to no downtime after your appointment. They each address the underlying cause of your sore back, creating the opportunity for long-term relief, unlike pain medication which is only a temporary fix.

Herniated Disc Symptoms and Causes

Chiropractic Care for Lower Back Southeast Missouri

A herniated disc refers to an issue with one of the rubbery discs that sit between the vertebrae in your spinal column.

When a portion of the nucleus of one of the discs pushes out through a tear in the annulus, it’s known as a herniated disc, or a slipped or ruptured disc.

Most of the time, herniated discs occur in the lower back.

Some of the common causes of a herniated disc include:

  • Excess weight
  • Genetics
  • Physically demanding jobs
  • Smoking
  • Using your back muscles instead of your legs to lift heavy objects
  • Twisting and turning while lifting

Chiropractic care, spinal decompression, human cellular tissue therapy, and PRP therapy can all be effective at relieving the pain and discomfort caused by a herniated disc.
