Chiropractic for Back Pain

DSC_0015.jpg

Two words we’ve heard countless times: back pain. From injuries to daily activities, a lot is required of your spine and it is important to keep it healthy. When the joints along your spine are restricted or misaligned, it eventually leads to stiffness and back pain. Besides complicated physical issues, diseases, and injuries, back pain is a common experience but downplaying how important it is could be a big mistake. Whether you are experiencing upper, lower, or general back pain, simply letting it go can lead to bigger issues down the road.

If you are suffering from back pain, whether it is in your lower back, upper back, or just in general, you’ve probably tried all sorts of methods to find relief. And just because back pain is common doesn’t mean you have to live with it. Chiropractic care is a natural and effective treatment that is non-addictive, non-invasive, and safe.

Back pain caused by injury, spinal degeneration, or other conditions requires a professional assessment to develop a successful treatment plan. One of the many benefits of chiropractic care is the attention our chiropractors give to the cause of the symptoms, rather than simply masking the pain with the use of medication. Quick, easy pain relief might seem like a good fix, but won’t help you treat the root of the issue. Additionally, pain relief without truly treating the cause of that pain can put added stress on the back. Actually correcting the problem with chiropractic care will help you find relief and potentially avoid permanent damage.

Back pain may be a common experience, but treatment options aren’t always the same. Chiropractic care is an effective method for back pain relief and treatment. Without the risks of surgery and medications, our team of chiropractors may be able to help you find the back pain relief you are looking for.

Frequently Asked Back Pain Questions

Isn’t some back pain normal?

Pain of any kind, at any age, is a sign that something is not right. Pain is how your body signals that a limit has been reached or a problem has developed. Since we can adapt, minor aches and pains are often shrugged off. While they may go away, if the underlying problem remains unattended, the problem may slowly worsen until it becomes more difficult and expensive to resolve. If you feel pain of any kind, we recommend that you make an appointment.

What about muscle relaxers?

A fundamental belief behind chiropractic is that your body can heal itself. When you get a cut, your body heals that. Your back pain is simply a symptom that your body is showing you to alert you that something isn’t working as it should. Chiropractors rely on natural methods to alleviate back pain. However, if you’re suffering, ice can have a soothing effect without the unwanted side effects associated with pain medications. 

How does chiropractic work?

Chiropractic works because your body is a self-healing, self-regulating organism controlled by your nervous system. Millions of instructions flow from your brain, down the spinal cord, and out to every organ and tissue. Signals sent back to the brain confirm if the body is working correctly. Improper positioning of the spine can interfere with this vital exchange. Chiropractors perform spinal adjustments designed to improve this mind/body communication. 

Does insurance pay for chiropractic?

These days, many policies cover at least a little of the care you’ll need. It’s convenient when an insurance company or some other third party helps pay the bill. But don’t allow a corporation to make your health decisions for you. If you sincerely want your health back, we can probably help.
