5 Common Chiropractic Techniques For Back and Neck Pain

The Five Most Common Chiropractic Techniques for Treating Back and Neck Pain

Going to a chiropractor routinely can help bring substantial relief to back pain and neck pain. We at Chiropractic Wellness Center in Newcastle understand that back pain and neck pain can lower your quality of life, so we use a range of techniques to restore your life quality as well as alleviate your pain. Below are the five most common methods our chiropractor uses to treat back and neck pain.

Chiropractic Care Techniques

  • Gonstead Technique - The Gonstead Technique is a precise adjustment that corrects areas of subluxation. This method helps decrease pain and stiffness, realign joints, and increase mobility.
  • Soft Tissue Therapy - This therapy is a targeted clinical massage where a series of tools can be used to alleviate neck and back pain, such as trigger point therapy, muscle energy techniques, nerve pain release techniques, Swedish massage techniques, and others.
  • Graston Technique - This technique uses a specialized instrument to mobilize the soft tissues for the doctor to identify areas where there is significant scar tissue causing pain.
  • Flexion-Distraction - This method is widely used in many chiropractic clinics. Flexion-distraction is a chiropractic technique that is executed on a segmented table that moves while a chiropractor adjusts the spine.
  • Thompson Technique - During this technique, patients are put on a special table that drops a fraction of an inch when a chiropractor is using quick thrusts to make an adjustment.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. Maxwell and her team are really great. I love that she takes the time to really figure out what is going on with me and genuinely CARES about my health and well-being. I have been going to her for years. I had been hurting SO badly with chronic pain due to illness and debilitating migraines and she got me in right away, and adjusted me gently since it had been a while; even this gentle (but thorough) adjustment had me feeling 100times better than I've been for weeks. I can't brag enough. I have always felt so good after her adjustments. I'll be making the drive from Mukilteo to Newcastle just to continue to receive treatment from her and Dr Stephanie every week."
