Alternative Pain Relief for Back Pain in the Hudson Valley
Lester Chiropractic’s gentle touch chiropractic provides a non-surgical, alternative in pain relief for back pain and many common complaints of neck and shoulder pain. Using a Torque Release Technique to release deep musculoskeletal and nervous systems tension, Dr. Lester’s low force chiropractic goes beyond addressing your immediate symptoms to restore integrity to the musculoskeletal and nervous systems.
Common Causes of Back Pain
Dr. Lester’s approach to back pain treatment includes relieving the leg pain, tingling, numbness, or weakness that are symptoms associated with sciatic nerve compression. Originating in the lower back and traveling through the buttock and down the large sciatic nerve in the back of the leg, this pain can feel dull, achy, sharp, toothache-like, pins and needles, or similar to electric shocks.
These symptoms are generally caused by lumbar spine subluxations (misaligned vertebral body/ies), herniated or bulging discs (slipped discs), pregnancy and childbirth, tumors, and non-spinal disorders such as diabetes, constipation, or even habitual sitting on one’s back pocket wallet. Spasms of the piriformis muscle, which runs from the lower part of the spine to the thighbone and assists in hip rotation, can also pinch the sciatic nerve and causing inflammation and pain.
Dr. Lester’s use of the Torque Release Technique addresses these and other symptoms originating from lumbar spine subluxations. While providing alternative relief for back pain, this method of natural pain management supports optimal health of the entire nervous system.
When it’s Not Just Back Pain
Dr. Lester’s low force chiropractic technique is an also effective approach for treatment of painful conditions of the neck and shoulder, as well as chronic or temporary headaches. Your neck and shoulders work hard and, if the bones of your cervical spine (neck) become misaligned or you injure the tissues or tendons of your shoulder, it can cause pain that ranges from a temporary mild nuisance to one that chronically limits your daily activities.
