Back pain is often a complicated problem that goes unrelieved for months at a time, despite regular visits to a doctor. The normal course of treatment is pain killers and muscle relaxers, but these often have undesired side effects. A chiropractor takes a different approach. He seeks to cure the pain at its source without using drugs, thus is safer, and often more effective at treating back pain.

Cornelius, NC 12/09 – Lake Norman Health and Wellness is pleased to announce that Dr. Akiba Green provides safe, effective alternatives for treating back pain without the use of medications or surgeries. In addition to back and neck pain, conditions such as tendonitis, bursitis, carpal tunnel, and other causes of pain in the extremities are treated using chiropractic methods that target the source of the pain rather than treating only the symptoms.

Advances in technology have made new types of treatments possible, such as spinal decompression, which can help with problems like herniated discs, fibromyalgia, migraine pain, and more. The stated goal of chiropractic is to relieve pain and return the person to a state of wellness where all of the systems of the body work in harmony, the way the body was intended to function.

One of the leading causes of illness and pain is spinal subluxation, the shifting of one or more vertebrae out of their normal alignment, which causes pinched nerves and pain. Manipulation of the vertebrae by a chiropractor can gently correct subluxation and release the pressure on the nerves so that they resume normal function and pain is relieved.
