There is a great debate in the medical community about repair verses management. Some people choose to medicate to get rid of the chronic pain, but this never really takes care of the problem. This method of treatment can develop its own set of problems that can range from major side effects of medications to dangerous addictions. The other solution is to repair the damage. Repairing can mean a variety of gentle manipulations to the back and neck region to alleviate the pain put on disks, muscles and vertebrae. Using manipulation, a method to place the vertebrae back into their original location, it can alleviate a great deal of stress put on muscles and surrounding areas and bring relief.

Many things can cause the back or spinal area to have pain. The pain levels associated with each condition will also vary. The main causes of back pain are trauma or an accident, degenerative disks and stress. When the body is stressed, the muscles will tense up, especially in the back. The muscles being stiff will cause pressure and pain. By relieving the pressure and allowing the muscles to be relaxed, the pain can be reversed. This can all happen using no medications and with no harmful side effects. Most people state that they feel relieved after they have had a manipulation.
