YEARS OF EXPERIENCE
Understanding A Backache
Injuries frequently cause back pain in the muscles or ligaments in your back. Sprains and strains can happen for various reasons, such as lifting incorrectly, muscle weakness, poor posture, and inactivity. People who are overweight may develop back sprains and strains more easily.
Common symptoms of general or lower back pain can feel like shooting, searing, or stabbing pain in the muscles. People who suffer from backaches often have difficulty finding relief.
Causes of Chronic Back Pain
Chronic back pain is a persistent discomfort that won’t go away and does not improve with standard pain relief methods.
Back pain is often caused by mechanical or structural problems with the back’s discs, spinal cord, muscles, ligaments, or tendons. Heavy lifting, repetitive motions, or sitting at a desk all day can lead to back pain. When lifting or twisting the wrong way, you can strain the ligaments and muscles that support the spine. All too often we forget to lift with our legs.
How To Prevent Back Pain
These simple procedures can help you avoid or prevent back pain and injuries.
- Be mindful of your posture.
- Refrain from bending, twisting, and reaching excessively.
- Avoid or reduce repetitive tasks.
- Don’t slouch or sit in one position for too long.
- Avoid lifting heavy objects.
When To Visit a Chiropractor
Chiropractic therapy focuses on treating issues with the neurological and musculoskeletal systems. It is most frequently used to treat different types of chronic pain.
Many people who have symptoms like constant pain, fatigue, nerve pain, low energy, digestive problems, muscle aches, numbness, and tingling use chiropractic care to treat these conditions.
Visit a chiropractor if your doctor can’t help you with your persistent pain or if you’re looking for an alternative to surgery or medication. A chiropractor’s goal is to get you back to your everyday life as quickly as possible.
How To Achieve Chronic Pain Relief
Chronic pain lasts for months or even years. For many people with chronic back pain, adjusting the spine relieves pressure on the central nervous system. A chiropractor will recommend other treatments to ease your pain, like heat/cold therapy, massage, strength training, or acupuncture.
Treatment Options for Neck Pain and Back Pain
Back and neck pain are all too common. When you slouch over a workbench or hunch over a computer, your neck, shoulders, and back muscles get strained. Additional common causes are sports injuries, whiplash, spinal cord damage, or physical trauma to your body. A chiropractor can help heal the pain if you are typically healthy but have severe neck or back pain.
Instrument-assisted soft tissue therapy involves the use of special tools to pinpoint the source of muscle tension and treat it. Physical therapy like resistance exercises and manual stretches can help promote pain relief.
Chiropractic adjustments target the cause of your pain, not the symptoms. The ability of the human body to heal itself is impressive, but sometimes it needs help. Manual therapy, therapeutic exercises, and spinal disc manipulation may be part of your pain relief treatment regimen.
With the aim of advancing the range of motion, lowering the irritation of nerves, and enhancing muscle function, chiropractic treatment aims to minimize chronic pain and promote healing.
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression
This treatment is best for bulging discs, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, nerve issues, and general back pain.
In spinal decompression therapy, the spine is slowly stretched to take pressure off the discs. Certain types of chronic pain, particularly neck and back pain, are often relieved by spinal decompression alone.
Leg pain, muscle spasms, and pain that spreads to the leg can all be helped by treating pinched nerves, a herniated or bulging disc, or deteriorated disc fibers.
