Low back Pain
Are you looking for relief of low back pain? Lower back pain is one of the most prevalent musculoskeletal conditions in modern times. Nearly everyone has experienced an episode of low back pain. Back soreness patients try rest, medication and even a massage therapy, but most cannot manage to resolve lower back pain entirely. Our modern diet and poor posture along with weak core strength all contribute to causing chronic low back pain and discomfort.
Mustang Chiropractic prides itself on proper diagnosis and precise back and neck adjustments. These spinal pain therapies to the lumbar spine serve to help give you your life back again. A massage therapist can do wonders for your back’s tightness and muscle spasms. These back and neck soft tissue conditions are the results of a lumbar subluxation, where the spine has shifted posteriorly. Pressure on the nerve roots are causing subsequent spasms, gripping muscle tension that is very painful. A chiropractic adjustment restores motion to the area and allows the surrounding musculature to calm itself. Your back pain problem has been resolved and the body can now begin the healing process. We use a combination of passive motion, relaxing electrical stimulation, massage, chiropractic adjustments and therapeutic exercise to resolve most low back issues.
Our patients in Oklahoma City often ask: What helps in relieving neck pain? Your neck, also called the cervical spine, contains seven small vertebrae which allow for a lot of movement in all directions, supports the 12-15 pound skull. This wide range of flexibility puts the spine at risk for injury from even minor trauma like sleeping in an awkward position.
Awkward movements and incidents like sitting with the head forward for long periods, repetitive motion, a car accident, falls and trauma to the or neck or skull can all trigger neck pain. The aging process and normal wear and tear over time can cause pain in the neck and shoulders. Neck pain can be very disrupting and annoying as doctors we know it can have many causes.
Here are some of the most common types of neck pain:
Injury and Accidents: Whiplash is the most common injury in an auto accident. The instant “whip” of the neck and head can affect the structures and surrounding tissue of the neck and spine. The Muscles will react by becoming tight and contracted, as a result, chronic pain and stiffness develop. In more severe cases a whiplash injury can damage the vertebral disc, spinal ligaments, muscles, and nerves. Car accidents are a major cause of whiplash and subsequent neck and shoulder pain.
Scoliosis can be a condition that can cause many skeletal issues if left untreated. While there is no cure for scoliosis, there are many approaches therapeutically that can correct or reduce even the most severe scoliosis. If you are looking for a chiropractor that treats scoliosis, but don’t know where to begin, give us a call at our Mustang clinic today. A diagnosis of scoliosis is often scary for the patient, and one that can be frustrating for the patient both for cosmetic reasons and for loss of functional movement. Many people that have scoliosis can get instant pain relief from receiving a massage from a massage therapist, but the results are temporary. While a massage therapist can make you feel better for a while, it is just a matter of time before the scoliosis induced muscle pain returns. We will diagnose your scoliosis with x-ray, send the films to a professional radiologist that specializes in scoliosis, and customize a plan to correct a scoliosis. Don’t delay, if your school screening suggested you see a chiropractor for a scoliosis diagnosis, call Mustang Chiropractic today.
Mustang Chiropractic doesn’t just treat back pain and sore necks, we also treat sports injuries of all kinds. Have you recently rolled your ankle, or sprained it or other extremities like a knee or shoulder? Dr. Crane has had hundreds of his patients get their sprain/strain injuries treated with chiropractic adjustments, physical therapy, ultrasound, laser therapy and electronic muscle stimulation. Once you experience the power of your own healing power, you will be convinced Mustang Chiropractic doesn’t just treat back pain.
All back problems involve muscle tightness, stiffness, and usually pain. At Mustang Chiropractic, every patient gets treated the same in that, we don’t skip the details. We address the muscle tightness with stretching, traction tables which put a gentle rolling action to the spine and surrounding muscles which allows the patient to relax despite their pain and discomfort they may have walked in with. Pain cannot hit a moving target, so getting concurrent therapy while in motion allows for 15 minutes of relaxation before the adjustment that they may not have had since the injury process began. Dr. Crane uses interferential electronic muscle therapy and/or therapeutic Ultrasound on the affected area for 15 minutes on a gently rolling intersegmental traction table with electronic stimulation at the same time. This provides the ultimate muscle relaxation experience, and relaxes the patient so they get the best possible adjustment for their neck, shoulder and back pain.
Pinched nerves, or the feeling that replicates it, is caused by subluxations up and down the vertebral column. Pinched nerves are not a specific diagnosis, so if your doctor told you that’s the problem, you should come to Mustang Chiropractic immediately to get a legitimate spinal diagnosis. Dr. Crane prides himself on his adjustive techniques for Peripheral Nerve Entrapment Syndrome and employs a variety of techniques to correct this problem, and keep it from coming back. Your top Chiropractor in Mustang adjusts full spine to correct any nerve entrapment or pinching a patient may be experiencing.
