Chiropractic Techniques for Neck and Back Pain San Antonio

5 Common Chiropractic Techniques for Neck and Back Pain From Our San Antonio Chiropractor

For over a century, chiropractic has been used to make adjustments on the musculoskeletal and nervous systems in an effort to relieve different pains, enhance joint function, and initiate the body’s natural healing power. Some of the most common chiropractic techniques that have been used to ease back and neck pain at Hildebrand Chiropractic include:

Soft Tissue Therapy Soft tissue therapy is used more on the muscles and ligaments than on the spine. The chiropractor first identifies the musculoskeletal imbalances using a postural analysis. Then, he/she manipulates the inflamed areas to improve blood circulation.

Graston Technique Graston employs a special set of stainless equipment designed to perform muscle mobilization. Generally, it is used to break up, remodel, and improve fascia restrictions on fibrosis and soft tissues.

Flexion Distraction Also referred to as Cox Technic, this method applies hands-on and mechanical adjustments using a unique table. The chiropractor stretches your back gently so that the spine can traction and flex forward simultaneously. The technic can treat disc herniation, non-disc spinal conditions, scoliosis, and facet joint pain.

Thompson Technique Thompson or drop table practice uses a specially designed table with numerous segments known as drop pieces. These pieces are usually tilted up a fraction of an inch so that when a chiropractor delivers a thrust, the table will drop that inch fraction. The aim of this drop is to open or distract the joint during the manipulation.

Gonstead Technique The Gonstead technique is usually applied on the pelvis and lower back. Typically, a detailed X-ray analysis is used to pinpoint the exact areas of the spine that require manipulations. The chiropractor then goes ahead to initiate a treatment plan that will help restore tilted vertebrae back to position.
