Low Back Pain & Sciatica
Chiropractors are considered back pain specialists. A standard treatment begins with an examination to determine the source of the pain, a review of medical history to determine the cause of the pain to develop a treatment. Chiropractic techniques have been proven to be effective treatments for constant lower back pain or sciatica nerve relief.
Hypopressives aim to reprogram the automatic function of the core, while helping to support the pelvic floor. The technique involves breath work, breath on apnea (a breath hold technique to lift and activate the deep core) and postural poses. They can be helpful with urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse and postpartum recovery.
