But life doesn’t always have to be this way. While we can’t dispel any emotional damage 2016 might have inflicted on your, physical pain is something this Anchorage chiropractor can banish for good.

It’s a new year. Time for a new, pain-free body.

Let’s look at how 2017 will be the year you decide to be relieved.

1. An Anchorage Chiropractor To Fix Your Lower Back

The lower back is the most common of all muscular-skeletal maladies. In fact, at any given moment, 31 million Americans are experiencing lower back pain.

Imagine, 31 million people groaning in agony. Sounds like hell to this Anchorage chiropractor.

But you don’t have to be among those people. I know exactly what will help with that.

And it’s not “take two Asprin and see me in the morning.” I use real techniques that bring real solutions.

Spinal manipulation is my first resort. And this isn’t some hair-metal band I’m talking about either. It’s a technique actually meant to realign your spine and surrounding muscles.

We humans are awfully mean to our backs.

We lift heavy objects without proper posture and slouch in our chairs. As kids we heavy backpacks. We swing, lift, torque, and twist.

And these actions put your spine out of alignment.

Your spine is both the support for your whole upper body and the protection for your spinal cord.

Your spinal cord is a vital organ. It keeps everything else running in the body.

The healthier your spine is, the healthier your body will be.

This is why, as an Anchorage chiropractor, I’d like to evaluate and adjust your spine.

2. Other Pain Relief Techniques

Flexion-distraction technique is something not well known to the general public. As an Anchorage chiropractor, I have a special table for this technique.

Although it does stretch out your body, I promise it’s gentle.

This technique is used when disc pain and leg pain are simultaneous. It gently pulls the discs apart allowing pinched and blocked nerves the room they need.

If the patient isn’t at least 50% better after twelve sessions, we’ll send you for x-rays.

Pelvic blocking is another way to move the discs apart if leg pain is present. We place a cushioned wedge under your body and then adjust your position accordingly.

Massage is also a great way to relieve back pain. It’s never administered alone, however, as we often combine it with spinal manipulation and other therapies.

Now that you know how we do it, come find out how it feels to be pain-free. Make an appointment today.
