Spinal adjustment
Spinal adjustment is a procedure to gently move your spine to its original, natural position to help relieve nerve interference that’s causing back pain. An adjustment may help you function at an optimal level and avoid pain.

Spinal decompression
This technique slowly lengthens and then releases your spine in a controlled fashion. The process creates negative pressure in your discs to relieve back pain.

Cold light laser therapy
Cold light laser therapy uses both infrared and cold laser light to ease back pain and reduce inflammation and swelling. The noninvasive treatment is an alternative to back surgery.

Physical therapy is another standard treatment option. Before you begin any treatment program, your practitioner explains all of the pros and cons of each procedure. You have plenty of opportunities to ask questions.
