Are you looking for a chiropractor for back pain? Back pain affects nearly everyone at some point in their lives. It is possible to receive chiropractic care to help alleviate some of that pain. Our chiropractors offer spinal manipulation and give exercise and self-care recommendations as a part of the treatment. 

Spinal manipulation has been shown to alleviate back pain and improve muscle function in people with low-back pain (the most common kind of pain).

Chiropractic care is available for what conditions?

In our practice, we see a lot of spinal issues and for more severe cases, we’ll recommend spinal decompression therapy. Typically the lower back (lumbar spine) as well as the upper back, the neck, and spine are most affected. It is possible for some of our patients to have suffered from a recent injury, while others have been suffering for a long time. 

Back pain is most commonly caused by disc problems as well as muscle spasms. The most common types of pain are headaches, leg pains, and neck pains. The spine is the primary focus of our chiropractic practice, although other parts of the body may be treated as well, including knee injuries and shoulder injuries.

How can chiropractors help with back pain?

Physical therapy and chiropractic care might be a better option before back surgery or injections. In many cases, these treatments are effective in relieving back pain.

What type of chiropractic treatment do you offer?

Manual manipulation is our main method of treating patients. This means that we use our hands to try and improve your spine’s movement. It may decrease muscle tightness if we can increase joint mobility in the spine and back. It can also be used to treat irritation of nerves running down the arm or leg. This may cause numbness, a tingling sensation, pain, and even changes in strength.

What happens during my first chiropractic visit?

On your first visit, you’ll meet with the chiropractor who will go over your history, current health conditions, and goals. You’ll also discuss any symptoms you may have and what it is you’d like to achieve from therapy. After this initial visit, you should expect to see a significant improvement in your condition.

In most cases, a chiropractor can help alleviate common ailments such as low back pain, neck pain, headaches, and more. The primary goal of chiropractic care is to restore proper joint function and alignment which helps to relieve symptoms such as pain and stiffness.

In addition, chiropractic care can help improve overall health by building strength and flexibility in the spine and improving overall muscle tone.

Is spinal manipulation painful or risky?

Chiropractors commonly use spinal manipulation to treat back pain and other musculoskeletal problems. The discomfort may be intense at first, but it usually wears off after a few hours. It is considered safe for most people and has no known side effects. 

The risks of serious complications associated with any medical procedure are also small. A spinal cord injury, nerve root damage, or blood vessel damage can result from this. For patients who have not responded to other treatments, chiropractors may recommend spinal manipulation. It is important to carefully consider whether to undergo spinal manipulation.

Chronic back pain sufferers should always prioritize self-care. Consider seeking professional help from a chiropractor if self-care does not work.

How often should I see a chiropractor for back pain?

Our initial meetings with the patient may be only once or twice a week. It might be necessary to see a patient every other day if they have a severe condition.

It is necessary to see some patients periodically due to their long-term problems. The majority of new patients are able to resolve their issues, and I may not have to see them again until they have reached their full potential.
