Chiropractic Care for Back and Neck Pain in Knoxville
According to the ACA, 31 million Americans experience back pain each year. It is the most common reason for disability claims, and it is the most frequently used excuse for missed work. Dr. Nathan Leavitt can evaluate your back and neck pain and recommend a non-invasive treatment program to offer you relief.
Back Pain Relief
Whether you have experienced a car accident injury in Knoxville, a sports injury, work injury or accidental injury to your back, our chiropractor can help you. The first step in treating back pain involves finding the causes. A few common causes of back pain that can be healed by chiropractic care include sciatica, pinched nerves, herniated discs, arthritis and pulled muscles.
Once we discover the cause of your back pain, we will develop a personalized treatment program to heal your injuries. Recommended therapies may include spinal adjustments and electric muscle stimulation. Spinal adjustments can be performed using a hand-held device or simply with our chiropractor's hands.
Electric muscle stimulation is a non-invasive technique that involves the use of electrodes attached to the skin. A low electrical pulse is then used to stimulate the muscles. This improves localized blood flow to promote healing and helps increase muscle tone.
Our Chiropractor in Knoxville
Our chiropractor in Knoxville, Dr. Nathan Leavitt, graduated from the Palmer College of Chiropractic. Like most chiropractors, he entered the field due to his personal experiences. His uncle was in fact a chiropractor. Dr. Leavitt was able to personally witness the benefits his uncle’s patients experienced. The pinnacle of Dr. Leavitt’s personal experience came when his uncle adjusted his back to correct minor back pain and discomfort. He thought it was a miracle cure as he experienced immediate relief. He had more energy and subsequently suffered from fewer illnesses. This prompted him to open his own chiropractic care clinic so that he could help other individuals feel just as healthy.
