Brookfield Back Pain Chiropractor
At some point in their lives, 85% of Americans will suffer from low back pain. In 2022 alone the economic impact of back pain in the US will exceed $100 billion! The good news is that what we do at Ascent Chiropractic has been proven to be hands-down your best choice for back pain relief.
In fact, a meta-review of 3,900 low back pain studies by the US Agency for Health Care Policy and Research rejected bed rest, surgery, corticosteroid injections, prescription painkillers, and muscle relaxers in favor of chiropractic care for acute low back pain treatment.
Even the American Medical Association supports this chiropractic-first position – the 2017 JAMA guidelines state unequivocally that chiropractic and other conservative treatments should be tried before other invasive measures are considered.
If that sounds like common sense, it is, but it’s only recently that the AMA has come out publicly in support of chiropractic as a better option than invasive procedures. Healthcare professionals across the board now recognize that chiropractic is a safe, cost effective, and efficient method of treatment for patients suffering from lower back and neck pain.
How Do We Treat Back Pain?
At Ascent Chiropractic, Brookfield chiropractor Dr. Grant Radermacher utilizes gentle, hands-on spinal manipulation to restore proper alignment to the body’s musculoskeletal structure, thereby returning proper mobility to joints restricted by swelling and spasm caused by an injury, such as a fall, or repetitive stress, such as extended sitting with poor posture.
Other therapies such as Active Release Myofascial Therapy, Cryotherapy, Kinesio Taping, Trigger Point Therapy, or Intersegmental Mobilization may also be used. In addition, while our initial goal is back pain relief, we put emphasis on stabilization and prevention of future injuries through implementation of exercise and posture education.
