The Kelsey-Seybold Spine Center has trained chiropractic specialists to treat back pain and spine conditions through hands-on spinal manipulation.
Spinal manipulation may sound painful, but it simply involves a precise, quick adjustment to the vertebrae and muscles in the neck and back, resulting in an adjustment of the spine and decompression of impacted nerves around it. The goal of every adjustment is to increase mobility and decrease pain.
Most conditions treated by chiropractors are those affecting the cervical spine (neck) or lumbar spine (lower back). The most common conditions treated through chiropractic care are:
- Herniated disc
- Spinal stenosis
- Spinal arthritis
- Lumbar radiculopathy
Additional Chiropractic Care

- Diathermy, an electromagnetic therapy to relax muscles
