Back Pain

Back pain is a common reason people seek chiropractic care. It can be debilitating. People of all ages and activities (or lack of activities) can suffer back pain. Pain of any kind is a signal that something’s wrong. Some people mask their symptoms with a pain reliever and ignore the message. This approach is like removing the battery to quiet a smoke detector!

Two Common Causes of Back Pain

The nerve-rich facet joints on the back side of each spinal bone are a common cause of back pain. The pain can be a sign these joints are not moving properly.

The discs between spinal bones can be involved, too. Trauma can cause the soft, pulpy material in the middle to bulge, putting pressure on nearby nerves.

Your Choices

We’ve helped many people with safe and natural chiropractic care. However, there are other choices you can make:

  • Ignore it (Spinal problems may worsen.)
  • Bed rest (May prolong the problem.)
  • Therapy (Stresses malfunctioning joints.)
  • Medicine (Numbs the body.)
  • Surgery (The irreversible last resort.)

The Chiropractic Approach

First we identify the root cause of your back pain. Then we utilize specific chiropractic adjustments to improve spinal function. By restoring the way your spine works, discs and soft tissues may heal, nerve involvement may be reduced, mobility restored, pain can ease and better stability can return. Naturally, we think chiropractic is the best choice for your back pain!

Frequently Asked Questions

Isn’t some back pain normal?

Pain of any kind, at any age, is a sign that something is not working properly. Pain is the way your body signals that a limit has been reached or a problem has developed. While your body may adapt and pain may go away in time, if the underlying problem remains unattended, the problem may slowly worsen until it becomes more difficult and expensive to resolve.

What about muscle relaxers?

Chiropractors don’t dispense drugs. Instead, we rely on natural methods. When properly applied, ice can have an analgesic effect without the unwanted effects associated with some pain medications.

How does chiropractic work?

Chiropractic works because your body is controlled by your nervous system. It is self-healing, self-regulating when it has no interference. When interference is removed from the nervous system, your body can function optimally and you can feel your best.
