EVERETT, Wash., July 13, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cornerstone Chiropractic of Everett is pleased to announce the addition of lower back pain treatment to the already robust list of services they offer patients. Dr. Mike Ilyankoff, a former faculty member at Life University School of Chiropractic, believes this is the perfect addiction to his practice in order to serve the needs of Everett residents better.
"At any point in time, there are 31 million Americans suffering from low back pain," said Dr. Ilyankoff, noting that, "Low back pain is also the most common cause of disability on a global scale."
Dr. Ilyankoff tailors low back pain treatment to meet the needs of individual patients, but also offers traditional treatment methods such as Gonstead or Diversified techniques, as well as more modern techniques including the Activator Method and Drop Table Method. In addition to these specific techniques, the chiropractor says he makes use of a precision adjustor instrument to help fine tune adjustments to better correct alignment.
"We design our services in a manner that encourages the body to rehabilitate itself," emphasized the chiropractor. Dr. Ilyankoff uses a combination of chiropractic adjustments along with exercise and massage therapy to help the body return to a healthier and more natural alignment. Additionally, Dr. Ilyankoff counsels patients on lifestyle changes that promote healing for lower back pain and overall wellness to avoid the recurrence of low back pain in the future.
People seek chiropractic care for a wide range of reasons including trauma from auto accidents, workplace injuries, repetitive stress injuries, slips and falls, and more. Dr. Ilyankoff says injuries manifest in many ways, from joint dislocation to herniated discs and other symptoms. "The one thing injury symptoms all have in common is pain," said Dr. Ilyankoff. "That's where we enter the picture."
Dr. Ilyankoff warns that patients should visit a chiropractor at the first sign of pain whenever possible stating that, "The longer back pain of any kind, including low back pain, remains untreated, the greater the odds are that patients will experience complications resulting from their injuries along with worsening pain and symptoms."
The Everett chiropractor advises that finding out what causes back pain, whether it is lifestyle related, work related, or the result of another injury, is the first step to developing an effective treatment for the condition. "Early diagnosis," Dr. Ilyankoff noted, "means faster relief from pain. The longer patients wait, the more time they miss out on living a full life because they are needlessly sidelined by pain."
Dr. Ilyankoff brings 18 years of experience in the field of chiropractic care to Cornerstone Chiropractic in Everett, WA. In addition to traditional chiropractic care, Cornerstone Chiropractic also offers workplace injury relief, nutrition and weight loss treatment, pain management, wellness and lifestyle treatment, massage therapy, and car accident injury treatment.
