Back pain may be common, but as the chiropractors at Copiague Chiropractic see it, that's no reason for anyone to live with it. They look for the deep causes of discomfort in spinal alignment and nerve function. Then, they devise a treatment plan. They have a lot of strategies at their disposal: manual adjustments are a common way to free pinched nerves and restore range of motion, but the chiropractors also use innovations such as ultrasound therapy, traction tables, and special adjustment instruments to make precise changes in the body. But patients don't need to study up on all the different techniques—chiropractors, who speak both Spanish and Polish, spend lots of time explaining both their findings and the recommended treatments.
