When it comes to relieving back pain, Dr. Tyler Hamel, Kingwood Chiropractor has plenty of experience treating thousands of patients with chronic low back and neck pain. Dr. Hamel believes that the public needs to be educated on what causes back and neck pain, how chiropractic care can help and what that process looks like.
What Do Chiropractic Doctors Do?
Chiropractic doctors look to help alleviate back pain naturally, it is important to distinguish chiropractor from medical doctors; and this is the main way. Chiropractors look to identify the root cause of the problem and come up with a plan to fix it; using the body’s own healing potential. Mainstream medicine uses a more symptom based care, trying to alleviate symptoms which is great but not fixing the root cause of the pain.
Three Keys To Relieving Back Pain
Kingwood chiropractor Tyler Hamel DC has over 19 years experience as an alternative back specialist, he sees three problems that need to be fixed when it comes to relieving low back pain.
- Spine and nerve irritation- chronic postural stress causes compression in the spine, especially in the neck, mid-back and low back. In order to fix low back pain proper nerve function needs to be restored. Spine and nerve irritation can be alleviated by doing specific chiropractic adjustments to the neck, mid-back and low back. Decompressing the spine allows for pressure release on both the spine and nerves; this process is essential to the chiropractic treatment.
- Blood flow problems- whenever an area in the body has stagnant blood flow it causes problems such as muscle spasm, pain and a decreased range of motion. In order to restore proper blood flow to an area such as the neck, mid-back or low back, chiropractic adjustments, muscle releasing and stretching will help this happen more quickly. Another essential therapy in getting back pain patients relief is restoring proper blood flow. Dr. Hamel does this is his office using a rapid release muscle technique, and corrective postural exercises.
- Inflammation– the inflammatory response is actually a normal process controlled by the body. When we have an injury, headaches, chronic back or neck pain or sciatica, inflammation is the initial body’s response to try and get the healing process in motion. It is when the body is stuck in a chronic inflammatory process that we tend to have aches and pains that just don’t go away. Dr. Hamel recommends a few different ways to help get the body’s inflammatory response back to normal and not over excited. He finds medicine like NSAIDS, (non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), can help get inflammation down but have potential side effects and they really are not treating what is causing the inflammation. More natural remedies such as a combination of heat/ice, fish oil, turmeric and magnesium tend to help naturally decrease inflammation and are really no side effects to speak of.
What’s Next To Relieve The Back Pain?
Figuring out back pain relief is really not that complicated says Dr. Hamel, it is trying to restore proper function to help restore nerve flow, blood flow and decrease inflammation. He recommends a series of 6-8 chiropractic visits to relieve back and neck pain, this includes spinal adjusting, muscle releasing/corrective exercises and natural supplements to help reduce inflammation. If after 8 chiropractic treatments, in a one month period of time, the patient is not getting any results, Dr. Hamel will refer them out to someone he thinks can help.
