5 Common Chiropractic Techniques for Back and Neck Pain Treatment

5 Common Chiropractic Techniques for Back and Neck Pain with our Midtown Manhattan Chiropractor at NuView Health Medical

Back and neck pain can limit your activities and make it difficult to fully enjoy life. Luckily, there are proven chiropractic techniques that can help you get you back to normal in no time. Dr. Alan Belsky, a lead chiropractor at NuView Health Medical in Manhattan, New York, can help alleviate your symptoms through the treatment techniques discussed below.

Gonstead Technique

This common hands-on technique and allows the chiropractor find and manually adjust problematic areas, which can result in reduced pain and inflammation and a realigned spine.

Soft Tissue Therapy

The soft tissue technique focuses on the muscles and ligaments around the spine, instead of the joints and spine itself. The theory is that massage applied to scar tissue and injury waste can improve blood flow, increase circulation and decrease inflammation.

Graston Technique

This technique, named after an athlete named David Graston, is a soft tissue therapy that can help get rid of scar tissue and improve mobility issues while decreasing inflammation. It’s great for back pain and knee issues, and certain sports injuries.  

Flexion Distraction

This technique uses a specially-designed table that allows the spine to be flexed forward and aligned. It’s an excellent way to treat disc issues, spinal disorders like scoliosis and to increase the range of motion in the spine.

Thompson Technique

The Thompson technique helps to open the joints in the spine by use of a special table with different segments, known as drop pieces. These pieces are only a fraction of an inch higher, but they effectively minimize the force required by the chiropractor to open the joints, which makes it much easier for the patient as well.
