Manipulation, which is also referred to as adjustment, is the primary treatment used by chiropractors to treat back pain. Chiropractors perform spinal manipulation with their hands or devices that use controlled force to adjust vertebrae alignment. Dr. Shamoiel uses an Impulse Adjusting Instrument, which provides spinal manipulations without the popping or cracking of joints, which helps some patients to relax. Spinal adjustments are generally safe for treating back pain when performed by a trained and licensed practitioner, according to the NIH. Dr. Shamoiel also helps his patients to prevent future back pain and injury by suggesting strengthening exercises and stretches that prevent future back pain by strengthening the muscles in the core and back. Dr. Shamoiel is dedicated to diagnosing and treating the root cause of back pain, to truly provide long-term and sustainable relief.
Because the cause of back pain varies from one patient to the next, Dr. Shamoiel offers different treatment options. One option might be low-impact exercises that target abdominal fat. Dropping belly fat can help your spine return to a more normal curve. Stress reduction is another common passive treatment option. These alternative treatments work in conjunction with traditional chiropractic care to help solve immediate pain issues while adding a preventative aspect to a patient's treatment plan.
By improving the way the brain talks to the muscles via the nerves, patients might find that there is a reduction of pain, improvement in their quality of life, and a decrease in stress. The goal is to help patients develop a nerve system that self-corrects. Along the way, sub-goals include teaching people about making healthy lifestyle decisions, improving diet and including exercise as a form of medicine. The process is painless and the results are positive.
