5 Common Chiropractic Techniques for Back and Neck Pain at Tacoma Chiropractic Center

Whether your neck or back pain is acute or chronic, it can have a negative effect on your daily life and overall well-being. That's why we make it easy to find the right solution to your pain or discomfort at Tacoma Chiropractic Center. Our chiropractors are committed to providing natural pain relief unique to each patient's needs. That's why we offer various techniques to naturally relieve back or neck pain and prevent it from reoccurring.

Techniques We Offer for Neck and Back Pain

Our chiropractors utilize several techniques to help the body heal from back pain and neck pain. After a thorough assessment of your current health and medical history, we will determine which technique or combination of techniques best fit your needs. These techniques include:

Gonstead Technique: This technique is used to adjust the spine, pelvis, and other extremities. Each adjustment during this treatment is completed using a careful methodology. It is a safe, gentle, and thorough procedure and comes with a proven track record packed with lasting results.

Soft Tissue Therapy: This treatment focuses on the ligaments and muscles instead of directly on the spine. It helps break up scar tissue and release toxins from the body. This technique is hands-on and reduces compressive stress on the body. It can also help speed up the healing process.

Graston Technique: This soft tissue mobilization is an instrument-assisted technique that scrapes and massages. It identifies restrictive areas to help increase function.

Flexion-Distraction Treatment: This technique decompresses and stretches the spine, helping treat conditions like herniated discs, joint dysfunction, and scoliosis, which can cause severe neck pain and back pain. It is done on a table that moves as one of our chiropractors manipulates your spine.

Thompson Technique: It is also referred to as the drop-table technique since it involves the use of a special precision table that adjusts to keep the patient comfortable during the treatment. It treats neck and back pain and is known for its gentle nature.
