Gresham OR, Great Health Chiropractic and Dr. Jeffrey Bratten, DC are pleased to announce that those who are suffering from back pain are encouraged to seek help from the chiropractor in order to obtain relief without the need for surgery or pharmaceuticals. The Gresham chiropractor uses state-of-the-art techniques to identify the location of the pain and to design a plan to alleviate the pain. Natural methods are the basis of chiropractic care.
Back pain is often caused by subluxations in the vertebral column. These are areas where the vertebrae are out of alignment, causing pressure on the spinal discs. As the discs are compressed, they may bulge into surrounding tissue, or put pressure on the nerve roots. Such pressure makes it impossible for the normal signals along the spinal cord to operate correctly. The brain interprets the pressure as pain.
Dr. Bratten begins a new patient consultation with a thorough examination. A physical exam, patient history and digital studies are usually part of the exam. The information which is collected is used by the doctor to identify the appropriate course of therapy. A variety of procedures and techniques may be implemented in order to alleviate the pain. These can include spinal adjustments, massage and other natural methods.
Once the pain is reduced, the doctor will suggest additional methods designed to improve overall health and wellness. The follow-up techniques might range from exercise to physical therapy to stress reduction techniques. Posture training is another suggestion which may help to eliminate the risk of further back pain episodes.
