For anyone experiencing body pain caused by unnecessary stress, including emotional stress, regular every day physical stress, allergies, injury, lack of sleep, and more can understand the importance of finding the right chiropractic care from an experienced chiropractor. Pain can literally be eliminated with the appropriate chiropractic technique. This blog post covers some of the basic information patients should know about the Logan Basic Technique.
What Is the Logan Basic Technique?
The Logan Technique was developed to resolve stresses within the body in a calm and comfortable way. When using this technique, the doctor applies light, sustained force on the sacrum at the base of the spine. Chiropractors will also extend the same type of contact to the spine and surrounding muscles. The theory behind the technique is the muscles around the sacrum will help balance out the entire structure of the spine, eliminating pain.
Why Use the Logan Basic Technique
After anyone has experienced any type of stress, including muscle fatigue, may experience a build-up of toxins due to the bloodstream’s hindered ability to carry away waste. The toxins are stored in muscle tissue and cause pain; prolonged or severe muscle tension furthers the problem. In addition, muscle tightness can cause the neck, back, spine and other parts to pull out of alignment. With the Logan Basic Technique, the goal is to relieve tension by manipulating the muscles that control spinal balance.
What Is the Procedure Like?
Patients often wonder what they can expect when a chiropractor uses the Logan Basic Technique. Before the doctor starts the treatment, the he or she will analyze the patient’s spine to identify the source of the problem and determine the best leverage point. The doctor will then place light pressure on the sacral bone to release tension. The pressure is not painful. The doctor will only apply a small amount of pressure because the theory is the lower the amount of pressure, the more response the chiropractor will achieve. The goal of the Logan Basic Technique is to restore the body’s ability to heal itself and to make the muscles more flexible and elastic. Applying a small amount of pressure to the right areas will improve body function for certain patients.
How Long Does it Take?
The treatment time usually only lasts for about 10 to 15 minutes, but the treatment time may vary from patient to patient. In addition, the number of treatments that will be required in the future will vary from patient to patient. The best way to determine how many treatments a patient needs is to have the patient consult Dr. Nathen Horst here at Horst Chiropractic in Temecula. After a consultation, Dr. Horst will be able to determine which technique is appropriate, how much pressure is needed, and how many follow up treatments will be necessary to help restore the body’s natural self-healing mechanism.
