Chiropractic Care for Low Back Pain
When you visit Upchurch Chiropractic in Royal Oak, we will start with a thorough assessment to determine the cause of your low back pain. Once we have a better understanding of what's causing your pain, we will create a customized treatment plan to address your needs.
One of the most common treatment methods we use is spinal decompression traction therapy. This is a non-surgical treatment that can relieve pressure on the discs and nerves in the spine. It works by gently stretching the spine, which can take pressure off of the discs and nerves. Spinal decompression therapy is a safe and effective treatment for many types of low back pain.
