According to data published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics, 8 out of 10 adults will suffer from back pain at some time in their lives. Fortunately, for most of us, this is only a short term problem caused by an accident or injury but, as Perth Chiropractor Adam Rocchi says, some people will suffer from the misery of chronic lower back pain for years, even decades – and in most instances this does not have to be the case!
Whichever type of back pain you have, whether it is chronic or acute, you know how it affects every aspect of daily living. In the case of an acute injury, patients often have concerns about whether it will recur. For those living with chronic back pain there are worries about whether it will get worse and necessitate surgery in the future.
There are many underlying reasons for chronic back pain and as you are aware, many possible treatments for it; these range between a prescription for anti-inflammatory medication at one extreme and spinal surgery at the other. However, whereas many treatments may alleviate the symptoms, very few actually identify or treat the underlying cause of the pain.
At Spine Scan Chiropractic, Dr. Rocchi uses a combination of two specialist treatments to get results both quickly and gently. So, get relief from your back pain today and by identifying the underlying cause, prevent further degeneration in the future. Please call the practice today on (08) 6150 8785 (Scarborough) or (08) 6150 8783 (Mount Pleasant) to arrange your initial consultation and take your first step to being pain-free again.
Spine Scan and Trigenics Bring Visible Results!
The treatment for lower back pain Dr Rocchi uses, utilizes two systems.
The hand-held Spine Scan instrument and the associated software identifies the stiff or locked spinal segments and imparts a series of fast mechanical impulses to gently release the deep, taut, hard to get at musculature along the spine. This results in improved spinal motion (which is evident to the patient on the screen) enabling treatment to focus on the abnormal neurological pathways that have developed over time.
The core muscles in the lower back are directly responsible for (or a major contributor to) most back pain. Evidence of abnormal neurology comes in the form of weakness or tightness in these core muscles that the Spine Scan instrument and Trigenics can correct.
Trigenics is a neurological treatment system that changes the way the brain communicates with the body. The treatment works by manually stimulating nerve sensors within the targeted muscles while at the same time, the patient carries out a specific movement or exercise as directed by Dr. Rocchi.
In most instances, the back pain patient will be surprised to notice an immediate change in strength in the previously weak core muscles.
Freedom from Lower Back Pain
The combination of Spine Scan and Trigenics enables the possibility of remaining free from recurring pain or back injury. Because the treatments used address the root cause, a series of treatments after the first visit will often be required to ensure these new nerve pathways and the associated muscle strength and flexibility have remained. Ongoing care from your Perth Chiropractor, Adam Rocchi will help you to go on doing the work, sports and activities you love – pain-free!
