People with chronic neck and back pain benefit can benefit tremendously from chiropractic care. Because chiropractic health practices are natural, they don’t come with the same kinds of side effects that prescription medications might. The professionals at North Pole Chiropractic in Alaska take a personalized approach to each patient’s treatment to optimize results.

Below, the team from North Pole Chiropractic explains some common practices they use to alleviate back pain:

  • The Diversified Technique: Another hands-on technique that’s popular in the field of chiropractic health is the diversified technique. It requires the chiropractor to make thrusting motions with their hands. Resistance is often applied with the help of a table or block. This technique can restore joints and enhance neurologic function to alleviate back pain.
  • Logan Basic Technique: Instead of using the brief thrusts administered via the diversified technique, a chiropractor may choose to employ the use of the Logan basic technique, which requires gentle pressure at the bottom of the spine. The pressure works to realign the entire spine and can lead to pain relief in the back as well as fewer headaches and improved balance.
