What are the Benefits of Chiropractic Treatment?

Traditional treatment methods of lower back pain include over the counter medications, prescription medications, steroid injections, and even surgery. Unfortunately, these types of treatments are expensive, accompanied with nasty side effects, and do not treat lower back pain at its source. These treatments will temporarily alleviate lower back pain, but because they do not treat the root of the issue, the pain will return time and time again.

Chiropractic treatment of lower back pain treats back pain at its source. Dr. Dee will identify any subluxations that are present in the spine and contributing to your discomfort. When subluxations are present in the spine, the nervous system is unable to function as it should. This leads to an array of health issues such as lower back pain, headaches, poor posture, sleep disorders, and more. By realigning the spine, chiropractic care restores function to the nervous system, allowing it to function as it should. When the nervous system functions as it should, the body can heal itself, as it is naturally designed to do.

A properly functioning nervous system has benefits that extend far beyond back pain relief. Benefits of chiropractic care include:

  • Improved nerve communication in the body
  • Better physical function and performance
  • Faster recovery from exercise or injuries
  • Relief from many types of pain
  • Improved concentration and focus
  • Stress relief
  • Improved immune system
  • Better sleep

Chiropractic care helps treat lower back pain by:

  • Providing a doctor that specializes in identifying the source of back pain
  • Correcting nerve interference in the spine
  • Utilizing chiropractic adjustments to correct subluxations in the spine
  • Offering patients natural, drug-free ways to treat their pain

    I am so fortunate that my husband introduced me to Dr. Dee and her "healing hands". I have been seeing her for almost a month, and my chronic back pain has improved dramatically. I look forward to our visits and would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to truly heal their bodies. . - Kristen Chase

    Not sure what my husband would have done without Dr. Dee. She has continually sought out new techniques to help him. I can say without a doubt, my husband would not be where he is without her guidance. - Audreanna Hoyt

    I came into the clinic with chronic back pain. As an athlete I was looking for anything to make me feel the slightest bit better. After a few months, Dr.Dee was not only able to make me feel significantly better but I no longer had that nagging pain while lifting! She's a life saver! - Victoria Hartline

    I heard about Dr. Dee though a friend and must say I'm glad I listened. I've been to a few chiropractors before and she is by far the most thorough of all. She treats the whole body, not just back issues. I've had pain in my toes that I had resigned myself to live with, but she even helped with that. I send all my friends to her now. - d.w

    Dr. Dee is awesome! I thought walking around with tightness in my neck, feeling like I was in constant need for a neck massage was just normal. Now I know it's not and it is SO nice to not feel like that any more! Thanks Dr. Dee. We are lucky to have you in Murfreesboro!! - Nan Norsby
