Low Back Pain Treatments

The sad truth is that 8 out of 10 people will suffer from lower back pain in their lifetime. Does that mean a lifetime of pain is inevitable? No, Dr. Michael Brass of Comprehensive Chiropractic Care in East Meadow, NY, has been helping people with their lower back pain since 1991. 

Spinal Manipulation

Spinal manipulation is the movement of the vertebrae in the back to get them into alignment. When components of the spine are out of alignment, nothing works as well as it should. Spinal adjustment can be very gentle, or it can be vigorous. It will be modified to match the condition being treated and the patient. 

Intersegmental Traction (Flexion Distraction)

When you have lower back pain, it can be caused by a bulging disc. Intersegmental traction can help with this condition. It is done on a special segmented table and combined with the manipulation from your chiropractor, the back is stretched, and the spine is decompressed. 

Electrical Muscle Stimulation

This treatment works very well on muscles and soft tissue. Lower back pain can have many causes and muscle spasm certainly is one of them. The electrical muscle stimulation can help muscles to relax by tiring them out. This causes spasms to stop and pain to decrease and releases endorphins. It helps relieve both chronic and acute pain.

Therapeutic Exercise

Therapeutic exercise is something your chiropractor may propose as a way to enhance your treatment. It can help with pain, flexibility, and mobility. It also allows you to continue your improvement at home through your exercise. Strengthening your muscles can help to make your core stronger, which will help you have a healthy back. 


Therapeutic ultrasound uses sound waves to treat different types of injuries to the muscles, joints, and soft tissue. It helps to reduce inflammation and increase blood flow to the affected area. It promotes healing at the cellular level. 

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is a great complement to other types of chiropractic therapy. It serves many purposes, including relaxation, which helps other treatments to work more efficiently. It also warms up muscles so that athletic performance is improved and injury is less likely to happen. We offer different types of massage and one or more of them is likely to be right for you.
