Back Pain Treatment

Back pain can be debilitating to the point that it interferes with your ability to perform normal everyday tasks such as sitting, standing, walking, sleeping, or exercising. Back pain can be caused by auto accidents, sports injuries, or countless other factors. Chiropractor physician is highly trained and can treat and relieve your back pain by identifying the root cause of your pain by using non-invasive techniques that work to restore your health and by proper alignment and myofascial therapy.

Underlying factors that may contribute to back pain include poor posture, whiplash, poor ergonomics, or herniated or bulging discs. For instance, whiplash causes pain and tenderness in the spine that can radiate throughout the upper back. Poor ergonomics that are practiced over an extended period of time can lead to spine misalignment, which leads to strain and muscle pain in your back. Other health conditions that may cause back pain are scoliosis, sciatica, and degenerative disc disease.

Back pain can be treated using chiropractic treatments involving spinal specific manual manipulation and alignment. These techniques help reduce neck pain, back pain or headaches, reduce pressure on your central nervous system, increase your ranges of motions, and stimulate your body’s healing abilities. Chiropractic care for back pain may also involve nutritional and supplement support, exercise therapy, hot or cold packs, electrical muscle stimulation machine, therapeutic ultrasound machine, diathermy, infrared devices or cold laser therapy.
