Back Pain in Delaware

This discomfort stems from various causes, such as poor posture, muscle strain, injury, or structural problems. The good news is we offer an integrative approach at Heritage Clinic of Chiropractic that can effectively alleviate this pain.


Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care focuses on aligning the spine to enhance the body’s natural healing ability. Dr Gabby and Dr. Steven use hands-on adjustments to restore mobility to joints affected by tissue injury. This realignment not only reduces pain but also enhances the overall function of the nervous system. By correcting spinal misalignments (subluxations), chiropractic care aims to alleviate pressure on nerves, thus reducing back pain and promoting overall well-being.

Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger points, or muscle knots, often contribute to back pain. These tight, sensitive spots within muscles can refer pain to other areas, causing discomfort. Trigger point therapy involves applying direct pressure to these points, releasing tension and improving blood flow to the affected area. This technique helps to relax muscles, reduce pain, and restore normal function, complementing the effects of chiropractic adjustments.

Intersegmental Traction

Intersegmental traction is a therapeutic technique to gently stretch and mobilize the spine. This therapy uses a specialized table with moving rollers or pads that apply a gentle and rhythmic motion to the spinal column. By elongating and stretching the spine, intersegmental traction helps improve spinal mobility, increase blood flow, and promote healing. This technique can also aid in rehydrating discs and reducing pressure on spinal nerves, thus alleviating back pain.

Combined Benefits

The synergy among chiropractic care, trigger point therapy, and intersegmental traction is impressive. Chiropractic adjustments restore spinal alignment, trigger point therapy targets muscle tension, and intersegmental traction enhances spinal flexibility. This combined approach not only addresses immediate pain but also aims to address the root causes, providing long-term relief and improving overall spinal health.
