Colorado Springs Chiropractor Provides Patients Relief from Back Pain

Thrive Chiropractic provides many services to manage and get rid of your back pain to include: chiropractic care, FDA-approved spinal decompression therapy, electric stimulation and ultrasound, FDA-approved cold laser therapy, nutritional counseling, physical therapies, and massage.

Colorado Springs Chiropractor, Dr. Kirby Gengler, is a doctor at Thrive.  

He uses manual spinal adjustments and instrument-based adjustments to relieve pain. Dr. Gengler has fourteen years of experience using a combination of chiropractic adjustments and therapies, like cold laser and spinal decompression, to eliminate pain from patients' lives.

As is the story with many chiropractors, Dr. Gengler became a chiropractor because he experienced the amazing pain relief of chiropractic, after he suffered a debilitating back injury while playing football. 

If you are seeking a chiropractor in Colorado Springs, Dr. Gengler uses both manual adjustments and adjustments tools to re-align patients' spines and restore them to health.

Spinal adjustments are effective at treating back pain. The goal is to restore the spine to its natural state. Adjustments can also be performed on a number of other joints in the body to relieve pain. Modern chiropractic techniques are proven to be gentle and very comfortable for patients.

Physical Therapy, Massage and Spinal Decompression for Back Pain Management

In addition to spinal adjustments, Dr. Gengler provides physical therapy to help patients recover from back pain and injury. Physical therapy at the clinic includes treatments with coldlaser therapy, traction, electric stimulation, ultrasound, stabilization exercises, as well as therapies and exercises to restore range of motion to the spine, neck, feet, and limbs.

Dr. Gengler has found that cold laser therapy is effective for relieving pain, even in cases where other treatments have been unsuccessful. During the therapy, a low level laser is focused on the area of pain. The therapy provides a pain-relief option that is non-invasive and drug-free.

Massage is also offered by our Colorado Springs doctor for both relaxation and to ease pain. Massage techniques allow the body to calm down and reduce stress. Our clinic offers several types of therapy for relaxation, from Ashiatsu to medical massage. Massages can also have a therapeutic on patients suffering from pain. Medical massages at our clinic are focused on a specific area of the body and are used alongside of chiropractic care to relieve pain and speed the healing process.

Patients suffering from chronic pain in the back or from conditions, such as a herniated disc, often benefit from spinal decompression therapy at our clinic. Our chiropractor spent 6-months researching the highest quality and most effective tools to use to provide the spinal decompression therapy and decided on the Kennedy table, which allows our team to treat multiple areas of the spine and adjust the patient's position with ease. In many cases, decompression therapy is more effective at easing pain than more invasive techniques, including surgery.

If you want to get rid of the pain in your back or in other areas of your body, call Thrive Chiropractic and schedule a free back pain exam with a Colorado Springs chiropractor, Dr. Kirby Gengler,today.
