Back Pain Treatments

Is back pain getting the better of you? Dr. Bruce Handelsman and Dr. Catherine Hall at Nyack Wellness in Nyack, NY, offer natural and customized treatment plans to help you heal as quickly as possible.

Chiropractic Treatment for Back Pain

Back pain is one of the most common types of pain suffered by people of all ages around the world. It’s also one that makes sufferers feel like there is no hope for relief – at least not without resorting to surgical intervention. Unfortunately, surgery can be risky and leave you with something else to recover from. Below, Dr. Handelsman and Dr. Hall share some techniques used at Nyack Wellness in Nyack, NY, that help naturally and effectively relieve back pain.

Spinal Adjustments

You might not realize it, but your pain might stem from a bone being out of its proper placement in your spine. This creates unnecessary stress and strain on your spinal discs, nerves, muscles, ligaments, and tendons. This can lead to shooting or burning pain, chronic tension, and more. Spinal adjustments restore proper alignment, which naturally relieves these symptoms.

Spinal Decompression

Pain in the back is also often associated with bulging or herniated discs. Decompression therapy is a gentle method used to stretch the spinal column. This process relieves pressure on the discs and nerves, as well as pulls healing nutrients to the spine.

Cold Laser Therapy

Cold laser therapy is a technique that sends low levels of light energy into the discs, muscles, and other soft tissues. The cells in the damaged area absorb the light, which stimulates natural healing and regrowth.

Massage Therapy

Therapeutic massage has been used successfully for thousands of years to treat a wide range of issues, including pain in the back. It’s effective in relieving tension, restoring range of motion, improving blood circulation to the damaged area, and more.


Acupuncture has also been used since ancient times and for an equally wide range of issues. It can be beneficial for back pain, as it can help block pain signals to the brain and improve blood circulation.

Nutritional Therapy

Eating well can do more than help you shed unwanted pounds and improve heart health. It is also a great natural method for fighting pain. Specific foods have healing properties that can improve bone and joint health, fight inflammation, and more. Chiropractors can guide patients to eat the best foods for their specific pains and other symptoms.
