One of the most common types of pain chiropractors regularly help with is lower back pain.
Why is the lower back so vulnerable to pain?
Whether acute or chronic, lower back pain can be caused by many factors, such as:
- Improper lifting techniques
- Trauma, such as a fall
- Sports injury
- Poor posture
- Lifestyle causes or poor work ergonomics
- Lack of muscle tone
- Degenerative disease
Additionally, the lower back is comprised of many complicated structures, making it susceptible to injury and pain:
- Muscle stress or strain
- Ligament sprain
- Bulging or ruptured disks
- Joint dysfunction
Regardless of the cause or type of lower back pain you suffer from; chiropractic care may be able to help you. In Windsor or Essex County, please reach out to us to arrange for your chiropractic consultation: 519-258-8544
If you have visited us for a chiropractic appointment, and depending on your condition, you may have experienced that a chiropractic visit at Huron Church Chiropractic and Family Wellness Centre usually entails more than just a chiropractic adjustment.
We believe in treating the root cause of the problem, and that often entails the use of other non-invasive therapies.
These therapies may include:
- Heat Therapy – Helps reduce muscle pain and stiffness by improving blow flow to the area of focus.
- Electrical Stimulation – By sending light electrical pulses to the affected area of the body, circulation improves, muscle spasms reduce and the endorphins are released (the body’s natural pain reliever).
- Ultrasound – Helps reduce pain, stiffness, improves blood flow and accelerates the healing process with pain-free sound waves creating a deep heat therapy.
- Massage – A brief soft tissue massage performed by your chiropractor or with an electrical appliance, helps reduce muscle tension, improve circulation as well as the many other benefits of massage therapy.
- Trigger Point Therapy – Muscle tension can often immediately be relieved by applying heavy pressure to a particular area using fingers or thumbs.
- Cold LASER Therapy – Is a fast, safe, and effective healing modality, which helps speed up healing, as well as reduce pain.
- “Take Home” Recommendations – Chiropractors are trained to give recommendations to help your body heal and keep it healthy. Recommendations may include exercise, stretches, ergonomic improvements, lifestyle changes and nutrition and supplement advice.
Depending on your ailment, we often utilize multiple therapies in one visit to give you the best value for your time, money and health. Please reach out to us if you have any questions or to schedule your next visit: 519-258-8544

We recognize that you have a choice when it comes to your preferred Chiropractor or Massage Therapist. That’s why we want you to be as relaxed and informed as possible about our practice; muscle, bone, joint and connective tissue health issues; and natural health treatment options. On behalf of all the Huron Church Family Chiropractic and Family Wellness Centre staff, we welcome you to our practice and look forward to helping you and your family preserve a lifetime of good health.
Our goal as parents is to raise happy, healthy and active children. We’d like to offer you 6 reasons why regular chiropractic care is important for children of all ages.
Children are hard on their bodies
Whether your child is involved in sports or prefers to spend their time playing on mobile devices; their young bodies can be easily misaligned.
Your child’s body is in a constant state of change, and regular chiropractic care helps restore and maintain their body for optimum functioning, relieving tension and stress as their body changes.
Good habits start early
Good posture starts in childhood and last lasting benefits. Chiropractors can also encourage proper head positioning while on electronic devices.
Set a good example
When you utilize regular chiropractic care for yourself you and your children, you demonstrate the importance of good health: setting a life-long example of the importance of good self-care.
In sickness and in health
Removing interference from the nervous system helps your child’s body operate in its natural healthy state.
Better sleep and related benefits
Our nerves affect every aspect of our body, and when there is interference it can result in sleep, concentration and even behavioural issues.
Overall good health
Our spine houses our nerves, and our nervous controls our whole body. Chiropractic care helps support nervous system functioning; which means your child’s entire body will benefit.
Everyone with a spine benefits from chiropractic care. Begin your child’s healthy journey today and call us to schedule your visit: 519-258-8544
