Chiropractors utilize specific forces to move fixated joints to allow optimal function, range of motion, and nerve function.

Acupuncture utilizes acupuncture needles to increase circulation to damaged regions. For example, if a lower back muscle is in spasm or has a strain, acupuncture can increase circulation to the damaged region and allow optimal healing.

Massage therapy:
Massage therapists utilize specific forces and pressure to decrease spasms in tight muscles and also to increase the range of motion in fixated regions. Usually, with lower back pain patients it is hard to bend forward and by alleviating pressure off the lower back muscles, the first sign of a successful massage session is increased range of motion
