Low Back Pain

There are different therapies that can be used to help with low back pain.  Lower back pain can be caused by a number of conditions such as disc herniations, degenerative disc disease, and arthritis.  Sprains and strains affecting your ability to function, such as being unable to bend over to tie your shoes or having difficulty getting out of a chair, require prompt attention.  Treatments with spinal manipulation of lower back conditions can be extremely effective, both for new problems and older ones.  These treatments are for acute, subacute, and chronic back pain.

                For acute low back pain spinal manipulation is recommended. Exercise at home, physical therapy and supervised exercise are not recommended.

                For subacute and chronic back pain spinal manipulation, acupuncture, relaxation techniques are recommended.

                There are some noninvasive therapies for low back pain. Studies have shown that the noninvasive therapies like: TENS therapy, traction, lumbar belts/supports, are not as effective.

At this office, we incorporate flexibility and strengthening exercise for the core or lumbopelvic region to promote better and further recovery with long lasting results.  Shown on our homepage is what we refer to as a "Gift of Health."  This allows a person to see us for a consultation, examination and recommendation without obligation or cost.  Thatcher Chiropractic is located at 3535 American Drive in Colorado Springs, Colorado 80917 near the intersection at Austin Bluffs Parkway and Academy Boulevard.  For more information or to schedule an appointment to see Dr. Thatcher, please feel free to contact us by phone at (719) 574-3700.
