Dr. Jaqua can detect and remove misalignments of the spine and ease muscle tension around the injured vertebral body. This allows proper communication transfer between the brain and body therefore restoring function to the nervous system.
By removing the mechanical interference many of our St Petersburg Back Pain patients experience improvements rapidly and are able to avoid surgery completely!
What Typically Causes Back Pain?
1) You have been in a Slip and Fall or Motor Vehicle Accident
Trauma can cause spinal misalignments in the body, which will distort your natural structure and irritate your nerves, bones, ligaments and discs. This can cause extreme Back Pain or Muscle Tension.
Any accident, no matter how minor, can create nerve-damaging misalignments instantaneously or progressively over time.
Our St Petersburg Back Pain Doctor will first give you a complete spinal examination to ensure that your spine is free from misalignments. Then, Dr. Jaqua will provide natural therapy methods to eliminate the pain permanently.
2) You had a Sports Injury or Work Injury
Repetitive stress or overuse at work or in a sport may cause spinal nerves may be impeded. As a result, this may negatively affect one’s range of motion, strength, reflexes, endurance, and, ultimately, performance. Dr. Jaqua at our St Petersburg Treatment Center can help your body restore normal function and help you get back to your best at work and play.
3) Pain Caused by Your Job
Holding postures and positions for a certain amount of time can change our spinal structure and cause certain muscles to shorten and tighten while others become extremely weak.
This consistent damage will eventually lead to Chronic Back Pain, disability and depression if not treated soon enough.
You don’t need to live with constant Back Pain and Soreness. We can help you get to the cause of the problem and provide a non-surgical method to heal your body and restore your health.
How Does Our St Petersburg Back Pain Doctor Get You Out Of Pain?
The spine holds up your head, shoulders, and upper body. It gives you support to stand up straight, and yet provides flexibility to bend and twist, all while protecting your spinal cord.
Each vertebra in your spine joins or articulates with other joints around it, to form a moveable joint.
Cartilage lines the joints and also forms the disc, which is made of cartilage that acts as a shock absorber for the spine.
Cartilage has no direct blood supply, so its nutrients have to be absorbed and toxins expelled through a process called “imbibition.”
If the joint is misaligned and not moving properly, the cartilage and your spinal discs goes through a slow process of decay.
We focus on Five Treatment therapies to resolve your Back Pain at our St Petersburg Clinic:
Manual manipulation by a doctor of chiropractic can provide back pain relief by taking pressure off sensitive neurological tissue. This increases range of motion, restores blood flow, reduces muscle tension, and creates a series of chemical reactions in the body that act as natural painkillers. When coupling this treatment with adequate hydration, the body can begin the healing process quickly.
Pelvic Stabilization Drills.
When leg-length deficiency, flat feet and/or subtalar instability are present, our doctor may prescribe a small heel lift or custom orthotics in your shoe for the short leg side to help stabilize the pelvis and correct your walking gait. If we change the pattern of your natural walking motion to be more anatomically friendly, your body reacts by eliminating its tension holding patterns and your Back Pain gets reduced dramatically.
The Cox flexion distraction technique can undo the nerve pressure and disc compression underlying your discomfort. It may free you from the need for major surgery. The technique, originally developed by Dr. James M. Cox, is based on the application of small, precise amounts of flexion distraction to the part of the spine experiencing disc compression or herniation. As the vertebrae in question are gently pulled away from each other, negative pressure draws the herniated or bulging disc back into position, relieving nerve pressure and pain and moving much-needed fluids back into the disc.
The Cox flexion distraction technique is a remarkably simple and comfortable experience for most patients. Our chiropractor, Dr. Jaqua, uses a special table built with multiple articulated sections. As you lie on the table, Dr. Jaqua will perform an adjustment to stabilize the vertebrae giving you trouble while pushing down slightly on the section of the table just below those vertebrae. This creates the flexion distraction force.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation Therapy.
Another therapy that many of our patients rave about especially those with severe Muscle Spasms and Cramping is electrical stimulation. This Back Pain therapy placed electrodes on the skin that send light electrical pulses to different areas of the body with the purpose of reducing localized inflammation in the muscle or joint, settle muscle spasms down and relieve Back Pain symptoms.
During the course of your treatment with us, the Back Pain Doctor may recommend some modifications of your work station or change the way you are sleeping at night which might inhibit the healing process.
