You can learn more about the causes of back pain and how it is treated below:
Causes of Back Pain
While back pain can be acute discomfort that is caused by an injury, it can also be chronic. Chronic back pain can be due to arthritis, degenerative disc disease, or fibromyalgia. You may also have back pain from sciatica. This condition can be temporary or chronic and causes pain that originates in the lower back and travels down one or both legs. Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve is compressed and causes symptoms like numbness, weakness, and tingling in the arms and legs.
Chiropractic Treatment for Back Pain
Chiropractic back pain treatment may consist of one or multiple chiropractic alignments. You may have subluxations that may have developed from a fall or poor posture. We can use chiropractic adjustments to ease pressure on the nearby nerves and soft tissue, while also improving blood flow in the affected region. Chiropractic adjustments can provide immediate relief and help your body heal naturally.
Exercise therapy is another back pain treatment we offer at our practice. Our chiropractor will teach you various exercises that can target the affected area and assist with your recovery. The exercises include stretches that gradually increase in intensity and frequency. They are designed to improve blood flow to the area where you have pain to help you heal. Along with that, the exercises can also help with function and flexion.
We also provide spinal decompression, which eases pressure on the spinal discs so they can heal with less interference. Our chiropractors may also recommend massage therapy for soft tissue-related problems. This treatment relieves pressure and tightness in the tissue and improves circulation.
