Every year, thousands of American suffer from back pain. Back pain can be the result of a variety of factors, including sports injuries, car accident injuries and medical conditions, such as herniated disc. Chiropractic therapy is a science-based treatment and highly effective for back pain. According to the Journal of American Medical Association, chiropractic manipulative therapy offers the significant advantage for improved physical function and decreasing acute low back pain. The British Medical Journal reports that patients with chronic low-back pain show greater improvement with chiropractic therapy than treatment by family doctors. All around, chiropractic therapy is natural treatment and avoids the need for surgery or pain medications.

On your initial visit to O’Dell Family Chiropractic, Dr. O’Dell takes your medical history, performs a thorough neurological and orthopedic exam and orders X-rays for an accurate diagnosis.

Spinal Decompression and Pain Management
by our Chiropractor, Dr. O’Dell
Depending on your condition, chiropractor Dr. O’Dell may recommend a spinal decompression treatment. Spinal decompression is a traction therapy that gently stretches the spine. It creates a negative intra-discal pressure to reposition misaligned discs. Spinal decompression treatment also increases the ability for healing nutrients to enter the discs. It’s an effective treatment for bulging discs, herniated discs, sciatica and posterior facet syndrome. The goal is to relieve back pain and promote an optimal healing environment.
