Back Injury Treatment

Treating Back Injuries in Honolulu

back injury in Honolulu

From surfing and constant heavy lifting to car accidents and spinal conditions, back injuries occur from a wide range of causes. Common back injuries include spondylolisthesis, herniated discs, strain and sciatica. With spondylolisthesis, there is a slipping or fracture of one of the parts of a vertebra. Your spinal discs are like a jelly donut with a softer center within it. When some of the softer center pushes out, it is called a herniated disc. Often, the nearby nerves are irritated and cause back pain, numbness or weakness. Your body has a series of ligaments and muscles that old the spinal bones together. If the muscles get strained, there may be tiny tears in the tissue. And because the spinal nerves stretch out from the spinal cord, there may be pain in other areas besides the back, such as the buttocks and legs. Sciatica is really a symptom of another problem. Typically, it’s cause by a compressed nerve root in the lumbar spine often due to a herniated disc.

A Multi-Faceted Approach to Back Injury Treatment 

When it comes to back injury treatment at Luke Chiropractic and Sports Injury, we implement a multi-faceted approach to healing. First, Dr. Bryan Luke takes a complete patient history, does an examination to the injured area and does a biophysics spinal exam. If needed, X-rays will be taken. He performs gentle spinal adjustments to properly align the spine. It reduces back pain, inflammation and stiffness. Spinal decompression therapy may be used for back injuries like bulging disc, herniated disc, sciatica and pinched nerve. It’s a painless therapy that gently stretches the spine, eliminates pressure caused by compressed discs and enhances blood flow and nutrient to help the body heal.

Cold laser therapy is another adjunct service to spinal adjustments at Luke Chiropractic and Sports Injury. A low level laser is used to transmit wavelengths of light to speed up the healing of injured soft tissues. It helps the body generate new cells and tissue and improves blood circulation. It’s effective in reducing back muscle strain, joint pain, whiplash pain and injured disc pain. Keep in mind that back ligament and tendon injuries take longer to heal that other tissue types. Cold laser therapy accelerates the recovery process. Dr. Bryan Luke also uses vitamins, supplements and herbs to assist his patients on the road to recovery.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I have benefitted tremendously from the chiropractic care I received from Dr. Anderson. Not only has the adjustments helped alleviate my stiffness and aches, but it has helped me have more energy and just feel more balanced over all. A few months ago, I was able to resume a favorite hobby of mine: golf. Due to my previous pain, I never thought that’d be possible."

  • "I was very impressed with the chiropractic care I received from Dr. Anderson. I had received chiropractic in the past for my neck pain, but not to this level of care. After only a few sessions, my symptoms began to disappear, especially my neck pain, and I know I would not have been able to perform to my everyday work functions without the treatment I received."

  • "May says, Dr. Luke is the Best Chiropractor Doctor, I have gone to in all my life. Before seeing Dr. Luke, I used to receive massages and I took Advil daily. I had symptoms of lower back pain, headaches, and pain in my abdomen. Dr. Luke and his style of Chiropractic relieved my headaches and lower back pain; Chiropractic has made me feel much better since I started adjustments with Dr. Luke. Event the pain in my abdomen is gone. I never thought another Chiropractor would be beneficial but I found out that Dr. Luke is the Best that there is. He does make a huge difference and would recommend Dr. Luke to everyone. Thank You, Dr. Luke!"

  • "I am a professional landscaper constantly using my back and body my work is very physical. With severe back pain especially in my lower back area. I would tell anyone the importance of proper alignment, which leads to a good physical body. Your body needs correction and you must take the steps to correct your problem. Whoever hesitates to correct the body's misalignment will lead to malfunctioning and a crippled body. Dr. Luke adjusted my body to have correct alignment. I'm back to work and good to go. Mahalo, Dr. Luke!"

  • "Awesome!!! Helped both my husband and I. First it was my husband- his shoulder would lock up and was stiff and painful. 1st treatment with Cold Therapy/adjustments his shoulder unlocked!!! no more pain or stiffness.
    Then recently I injured my knee, I was on pain medicine and told by my doctor I would need surgery to fix this. I ended up in Dr. Luke's office and have already felt tremendous relief. I mustered up the courage and one day got my back and neck adjusted as well. OMG!!! I am truly enjoying my smooth turning neck and less lower back stiffness due to the adjustments, Don’t be scared just do it !!! And feel great.
    Both my husband n I continue our visits with Dr. Luke . We enjoy the easy going atmosphere . Dr.Luke will teach you how to care for your specific condition . Come and check it out !!! You will be amazed and most happy that you did.."
