Painkillers only mask your back pain but can't tackle the cause. If you're looking for a holistic approach to back pain relief, your chiropractor, Dr. Carin Piacente, can help. Since opening in September 2020, Spine, Body, and Soul has been helping patients improve back pain through chiropractic manipulation, massage, acupuncture, dry needling, and other therapies in Greenwich, CT.
Holistic Solutions for Back Pain
Here, your chiropractor applies manipulation to your backbone to improve subluxations. Chiropractic manipulation aims to help you get better motion range, improve function, and reduce nerve irritability. This treatment is generally pain-free but some people get some soreness that goes away in about a day.
Acupuncture and dry needling involve the insertion of tiny stainless steel needles into your skin. Acupuncture has been an integral part of Asian traditional medicine for centuries.
On the other hand, dry needling is a newer procedure in which the needles are inserted at myofascial trigger points to initiate the pain relief effects.
Graston and Webster Techniques
Developed by Dr. Larry Webster, the Webster technique uses special chiropractic processes to correct pelvic dysfunction. This therapy may provide relief for pregnant women with sciatica and back pain. It may also help in achieving the optimal birth position for a wholesome birth experience.
The Graston technique, known also as Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM), treats soft tissue lesions. This technique may help manage back pain, knee pain, and several other conditions.
For cupping therapy, your chiropractor puts suction cups on your skin. The suction cups only stay on for a few minutes before removal. This treatment may help improve blood flow and relieve pain.
Corrective exercise identifies and corrects problems with your functional movement. Your chiropractor develops a personalized corrective exercise plan to improve your balance, coordination, and posture.
