5 Techniques for Back and Neck Pain

Back and neck pain can negatively impact your productivity and quality of life. Additionally, finding working solutions for this pain can be equally challenging. At Back To Health Wellness Center in Sarasota, we can help. Dr. Kuskin will employ various techniques to alleviate your back and neck pain. Some of these techniques include:

1. Trigger Point Massage

Trigger point therapy is exceptionally effective in providing short-term and long-term relief for stress headaches, chronic tension, neck aches, whiplash, and cervical spinal pain. We will start the trigger point massage by finding the tight spots in your neck muscles. We will use tools like massage balls and foam rollers or our fingers to firmly press the trigger points to relieve the tension in the muscles.

2. Swedish Massage

The idea behind this massage therapy is to encourage greater blood flow to the muscles and soft tissues. This therapy takes advantage of long strokes, stretching and tapping, kneading motions, and friction. Swedish massage gently releases tension in the muscles and nerves, allowing the blood to cleanse and repair damaged tissues relieving pain naturally.

3. Chiropractic Adjustments

This therapy focuses on the spine, and before Dr. Kuskin starts treatment, we will examine your health history, x-rays, and conduct a physical exam. This allows us to determine the specific issues with your spine and what adjustments are needed to correct them. The chiropractic adjustments to your spine will be done while you are lying face-down.

4. Physical Therapy Modalities

Therapeutic modalities involve the administration of mechanical, thermal, light, and electromagnetic energies. Physical therapy modalities modulate or relieve pain, improve circulation, reduce inflammation, and promote tissue healing. Additionally, they enhance muscle activation and decrease unwanted muscle activity.

5. Spinal Decompression

This non-invasive spinal therapy involves gently stretching the spine to change its force and position. The achieved changes relieve the pressure from the spinal discs by creating negative pressure. Spinal decompression allows herniated or bulging discs to retract and frees the nerves, alleviating your back pain.
