One of the biggest objections that I've heard of people going to a Las Vegas chiropractor is that they've heard that the chiropractic adjustments Las Vegas can be painful or very uncomfortable. If that's a concern or an objection that you have, then I would recommend finding a chiropractor that utilizes a computerized form of adjusting called the pro-adjuster. The pro-adjuster is a computerized form of adjusting which is very comfortable, and very safe. All of the patients that we have that utilize this treatment love it, and they actually prefer this type of treatment over the other manual treatments.
There are many benefits of being treated by the pro-adjuster. One, is that there is no pain or discomfort with the treatment. Two is that you can get the same amazing results as you would get with the traditional chiropractic, but once again, without that pain or discomfort. And number three, is that you can actually see on the computer screen, a scan of how the spine is moving before the treatment, and then once again after the treatment. And with that scan you will be able to see if the treatment that you have received has been effective in the treatment of your neck or low back pain with chiropractic adjustments Las Vegas.
Laser Therapy is becoming more popular in Las Vegas as more residents experience positive results. One of the biggest causes of pain in Las Vegas (whether it's in the neck, shoulder, wrist, knee, foot, or anywhere else) is inflammation. One of the best ways to treat that inflammation is with cold-laser treatment. The cold laser that most chiropractors prefer is called the "LiteCure". This is a class 4 laser, which outputs over 20 times the amount of energy and healing potential as the next best laser below it. The way it works is the laser energizes the cells, it pumps the cells full of photons, it increases the circulation, and it allows these underlying cells to heal so that the inflammation can be dispersed, which allows the body to heal quicker because it's working on a cellular level.
This treatment is quick, it only takes a few minutes to treat an infected area, but the results can last for a long time. These class 4 lasers are utilized by many professional athletic teams - they keep them in the locker rooms to use them on the athletes if they suffer any type of injury during the game. So if you think you're suffering from inflammation, find a chiropractor in Las Vegas that utilizes class 4 laser therapy to get you out of pain!
Working in a Las Vegas chiropractic office, a question I get asked all the time is, "what is a good exercise for my low back?". Now, after you've suffered a low-back injury, and have visited a Las Vegas chiropractic office, I don't recommend doing exercises where you bend your back. It's important to find chiropractic exercises where your back is able to be kept straight. The best exercise that I've found for that is called the plank exercise. This isn't solely for the low-back, it's also for the abdominals, and the entire core muscle area. I'm going to explain to you how to do this exercise.
Get down on your elbows and your toes. Get your elbows in line with your shoulders. Start on your knees, and then lift up your hips and hold yourself up on your toes. When you're in this position you want to keep your head nice and straight, looking down towards your hands. Don't look up, and don't look down, that will cause too much stress on your neck. Another part of the exercise - don't lift up your butt, or dip down because it will hurt your low-back. Just start on your knees, come up onto your toes, keep your body straight, and your head straight forward.
That's how you do the plank exercise to strengthen your core muscles to stabilize your low-back and keep you from having this injury come back again in the future. With this chiropractic exercise, you want to be able to hold it as long as you can - work up to where you're able to hold it for at least a minute, and that's when you know that your core muscles are much stronger.
