Chiropractors are considered leading back pain doctors. Dr. O’Guin begins by doing a thorough examination on each new patient and providing a diagnosis. Once a correct diagnosis is made there are multiple treatment options available. The most common treatments include myofascial release, stretching, chiropractic adjustment, and spinal decompression. Collectively, these therapies help speed healing and recovery of the body.
Back pain can be caused by muscle spasms, inflamed joints, arthritis, herniated discs and pinched nerves. Muscle spasms respond to performing the correct stretches and exercises. Joint pain and arthritis often does well with a combination of chiropractic adjustments and myofascial release. Herniated discs and pinched nerves are helped with spinal decompression.
Dr. O’Guin is a Crestwood chiropractor who also encourages patients to take care of their own backs through self-management. He educates patients on yoga stretches and exercises that can be found on his blog. During visits, patients are shown proper postures and positions so that they can safely and effectively perform these exercises. The absolute best results are obtained when using hands on therapies such as chiropractic and doing stretches and exercises.
