Back Pain Services by Our West Hartford Chiropractors
Our chiropractors offer a range of services to meet your needs. As we progress through your treatment, you discover our back pain relief treatments include:
Chiropractic adjustments - Dr. Laub and Dr. Hart have advanced knowledge of how to normalize and optimize the nervous system to alleviate back pain by finding and eliminating the underlying cause for your back pain. We use gentle touch, non-invasive adjustments of your spine to position the vertebrae into alignment, remove pressure on the nervous system, reducing pain, inflammation and swelling the involved tissues. Once the adjustments are made, you begin to feel a reduction in your pain, since nerve pressure is reduced, blood flow is increased to the tissue and with further adjustments and exercises spinal stability is achieved.

We use a specific gentle adjustment technique to position your various vertebrae in optimal position, to allow maximum comfort to the pregnant women and baby and allowing for an easy pregnancy and a quick and comfortable delivery
W.A.V.E. - Our WAVE Whole Body Vibration Machine and one on one exercise protocols is designed to increase bone density, decrease and even reverse osteoporosis, increase muscle strength, endurance, increase balance, increase the good cholesterol and decrease the bad cholesterol and all in a very short sessions time. The reason is the ability of this WBV machine to generate up to 6 G of force, between 16,000-32,000 vibrations/ Minute, which in return induces controlled multiple muscle contractions. The result- in every 15 minutes session we achieve the equivalent of 2 hours of workout at the gym. For busy moms, executives, athletes or anyone that is short on time and needs results- it makes a big difference.
Bone Density Screening - In our efforts to provide total-body care, we offer ultrasonic bone density screening to give us and you a greater understanding of the condition of your spine and limbs as well as detect and correct osteoporosis. It also helps with the question- if this is contributing to your back pain and ultimately if needed- helps us improve or even correct your osteoporosis with proper nutrition, supplementation, and Whole Body Vibration Exercise protocols.

Cold Laser Therapy- This treatment technique promotes healing to many injured areas that are causing or adding to your back pain. It is a painless, non-invasive technique using one of our various laser machines to help reduce pain, inflammation, swelling, increase metabolism of the tissue , infuse the healing tissue with oxygen and shorten the healing process.

Certain oils help to reduce discomfort and inflammation and may be combined with our other services to help you overcome back pain. We use only pure essential oils, allowing us to achieve big results with small amount of essential oils.
What Are Some Causes of Back Pain Chiropractors Can Successfully Treat?
- Dislocated vertebrae
- Ruptured discs
- Muscle strain and trauma
- Poor posture
- Repetitive motion injuries
What is a Dislocated Vertebra and How is it Treated?
A dislocated vertebra is where a vertebra slips or is knock out of place. A dislocated vertebra can push up against a nerve and cause inflammation and great pain. It also applies irregular pressure on your back muscles. Your chiropractor fixes this condition by manually and gently maneuvering the vertebra back into its proper position.
What is a Ruptured Disc and How Does a Chiropractor Fix It?
A ruptured disc, also known as a slipped disc, occurs when the inside gel-like fluid ruptures through the outer wall. This happens from poor lifting techniques, lifting too much weight, or from an impact injury. Oftentimes, the ruptured disc presses up against a nerve, causing pain. Chiropractors manually move the herniated disc back into a more regular position and away from the nerve.
How Does a Chiropractor Bring Low Back Pain Relief?
A dislocated vertebra or herniated disc can cause you lower back pain. Your lower back is also where your sciatic nerve leaves your spinal column and travels through your pelvis and down your legs. Any misalignment in your lower spine can cause both muscle and sciatic nerve pain.
By properly positioning any dislocated vertebra or herniated disc, pressure can be removed from your sciatic nerve. It also allows your muscles to sit correctly. Inflammation or injured muscles can be treated with massage therapy, ultrasound, or electrical muscle stimulation.
Can a Chiropractor Correct Poor Posture?
Poor posture over time can cause strain on your muscles and spine. Poor posture could be attributed to your sitting or work habits. Your chiropractor will make sure that your spine is aligned properly. They will provide you with exercises that will strengthen your muscles to make your back be supported correctly. They will also suggest how you can work, stand, and sit in a fashion that will improve your posture.
