What Causes Back Pain?
The back is comprised of some of the largest muscles in the body. These muscles work very hard all day. Along with these muscles, the vertebra of the spine is also working hard all day to bring flexibility and support to your entire body. With such a huge job, it is easy to see how your back can get tired and injured.
Back pain can be caused by muscle spasms, degenerative discs, sports injury, auto accident injury or just a personal injury.
If any part of the back becomes injured or inflamed, it can start to cause pain. It is important to find all-natural, drug-free ways to deal with this pain so that you can keep being active and productive.
Can Chiropractic Care Help?
Traditional medicine will often simply treat the symptoms of your back pain with harsh pain medications. These medications do not work long term and are not healthy. A chiropractor will be able to get down to the root of your pain issues. When the root of your pain issues is uncovered, a treatment plan can be developed which will help your body heal naturally.
Spinal adjustments are often used as a foundational treatment in chiropractic care. When the spine is out of alignment, it causes stress and inflammation all along the spinal column. This can affect every part of the back.
Bringing the spine into proper alignment with chiropractic adjustments will help to restore balance to the back and increase blood and oxygen flow as well.
In addition to spinal adjustment, our chiropractor can also recommend other types of treatments which can help with pain management as well. Laser therapy, hot/cold therapy, and massage therapy are just a few of the treatment options you can find at our office.
