Your Santa Barbara chiropractor team at Advanced Chiropractic Group specializes in the diagnosis and natural treatment of back pain from a variety of causes. Back pain can result from years of poor posture or poor work environment ergonomics. It can also result from an auto accident or sports injury. It is a significant symptom of fibromyalgia and disc problems. Many of our patients made initial appointments with us due to back pain, sometimes mild and sometimes debilitating.
At Advanced Chiropractic Group, we understand that to provide lasting relief from back pain, it must be treated at its root cause. Masking pain with medications often makes it difficult to discover and treat that root cause. We use that pain as part of our initial diagnostics. In our first consultation and exam, we'll discuss the circumstances surrounding your discomfort and how long you've experienced the pain. You will undergo some relatively simple physical range of motion and mobility tests and a spinal screening. We will determine how movement affects the level of your discomfort. After our diagnostic procedures, we will prescribe a chiropractic treatment plan targeted to your specific type of back pain. You will likely undergo your first treatment upon diagnosis. Many patients feel at least some relief from back pain after their initial treatment. Our goal, however, is long-term relief.
Advanced Chiropractic Group offers a range of modalities to address various back pain issues. They include:
Chiropractic Adjustments - Back pain is often caused because the nerves, muscles, and spinal column have gotten out of alignment. Chiropractic adjustments work to reestablish the body's neuromusculoskeletal balance, providing a better environment for healing.
Cold Laser Therapy - Cold laser or low-level laser uses a low intensity laser to manage pain and promote healing. For many, it provides the immediate relief desired while setting the body up for lasting relief.
Massage Therapy - Massage therapy improves blood flow to certain areas of the body. Treatments are designed to reduce stress and promote better healing. They also happen to re-energize and invigorate.
Impulse IQ Adjustments - The Impulse IQ Adjusting Instrument allows us to provide treatment that is twice as fast as other instruments and 100 times faster than manual adjustments. Its computerized adjustments use controlled forced that can be gentle enough for any patient.
Activator Technique - This technique uses a hand-held medical device to deliver a precise, gentle, pulsing thrust of pressure to the misaligned vertebrae or joint.
Palmer Method/Diversified Technique - This tried and true treatment is used to align the vertebrae through spinal manipulation and has long been used to provide relief from back pain.
