Chiropractic Care

Lordex Spine Center of Columbia specializes in Chiropractic care. Chiropractic is a complementary and alternative medicine concerned with the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system and the effects of these disorders on general health.

The main chiropractic treatment technique involves manual therapy, unclosing manipulation of the spine, other joints, and soft tissues; treatment also includes exercise and health and lifestyle counseling. Manual therapies commonly used by chiropractors are effective for the treatment of low back pain, and might also be effective for the treatment of lumbar disc herniation with radiculopathy, neck pain, some forms of headache, and some extremity joint conditions.
