Living with back pain isn’t really living, is it? Missing out on your favorite hobbies and pastimes, not being able to participate with friends and family the way you used to; it’s no way to spend the rest of your life. Thankfully, chiropractic care for back pain relief have helped countless patients and may be able to help you, too.
Chiropractic Treatments for Back Pain
Manual chiropractic adjustments help get the spine and the entire body back into proper alignment, restoring communication throughout the nervous system, often resulting in improved mobility and true pain relief.
Additional chiropractic therapies are also available, such as spinal decompression. This treatment carefully stretches the spine, relieving the tension and pain associated with herniated discs, sciatica, bulging discs, or degenerative disc disease.
Class IV laser therapy uses an FDA-approved laser therapy to relieve back pain by reducing inflammation and triggering the body’s natural healing response in the affected area.
Common Causes of Back Pain
Aging - Over time, the spine can undergo changes and become painful.
Bulging/herniated disc - A disc between two vertebrae may be pressing against the nerves in the spine, which can cause numbness, weakness, and extreme pain.
Osteoarthritis of the spine - Degeneration of the bones in the spine, often resulting in painful growths on the bones.
Sciatica - If you have buttock, hip, and lower back pain, you may be suffering from sciatica. It is often felt only on one side and may be accompanied by numbness or weakness in the feet and legs.
Car accident - Whiplash, disc damage, and other painful conditions may be present after a car accident.
Poor posture - Poor posture can take its toll over time, resulting in chronic back pain that inhibits everyday motions and activities.
Overuse - Whether through something as mundane as sitting at a desk day in and day out or as adventurous as a sports injury, overusing the back can cause severe pain.
Genetics - Sadly, genetics can predispose some people to spinal issues and back pain.
Trauma - Any trauma to the spine or back can result in back pain for years to come if not properly treated.
