What Do Chiropractors Do for Back Pain?
It’s natural to wonder when a chiropractor can help with your back or neck pain. The truth is chiropractors can treat many conditions related to the musculoskeletal system. So, if you have acute pain and stiffness or chronic conditions that limit your mobility and activity, we would love to help.
Acute pain typically has a unique cause. Many people tweak a nerve while lifting heavy objects, such as furniture or weights. In many cases, chiropractors can alleviate this temporary pain with adjustments that take the pressure off the nerve, resulting in less inflammation and pain
When You Should See a Chiropractor for Back Pain
Many of our patients prefer a conservative approach to pain management. Chiropractors use natural techniques, such as spinal adjustments, to correct the root cause of acute and chronic pain. You can find out whether your condition would respond well to chiropractic treatment by making an appointment with our team today.
What Types of Chiropractic Treatments Are Available?
There are many manual adjustment techniques that can realign the vertebral disc in your back and neck. In certain cases, muscle tightness and joint misalignment can cause pain in the pelvis, low back, neck, middle back, arms, wrists, and knees. In that case, reducing muscle tightness can release tension in the soft tissue supporting your spine and joints. Our chiropractor also treats the root causes of irritated or pinched nerves that can cause pain to radiate down your arms or legs. Numbness, burning sensations, tingling, and pain are just a few of the symptoms that something is amiss in your spine and central nervous system. Let us find the problem and help you accelerate your healing.
What Are the Major Characteristics of Chiropractic Care?
Having targeted conversations with your chiropractor can lead to accurate diagnosis of your pain, discomfort, or mobility issue. We’ll talk to you about how to improve your flexibility with exercises and lifestyle changes at home or work. In the meantime, we’ll perform several tests to see how you bend, lift, sit, walk, and stand. All this information will lead to a comprehensive treatment plan designed to improve your health and well-being.
It’s not unusual for patients to come to us discouraged because they have tried numerous other treatments. We’re here to tell you that you can do this and we can often help by providing innovative solutions to acute and chronic spinal conditions.
What Happens During the Initial Consultation?
In some cases, a trip to the chiropractor may seem just as familiar as visiting your eye doctor or dentist. Our gracious staff will greet you and assist you with filling out the necessary new patient forms. We’ll also learn a little bit more about you before you even reach the exam room. Here are some of the questions we ask every patient:
Are you experiencing pain?
What is the severity of the pain on a scale of 1 to 10
Does your back or joint issue limit your mobility
What would you like to accomplish with your chiropractic care for back pain?
What symptoms do you experience?
Have you had a recent car accident or experienced a sports-related injury?
In certain cases, we may need medical scans, such as an MRI or X-ray, to better assess your injury. This is to ensure that we provide safe, effective treatment that addresses your specific condition. We also look at the alignment, nerve function, muscle tone, and other aspects of your back and neck spine.
What Happens After the Exam?
After the exam, we’ll discuss all the options available that might help your condition. Often, this means targeted manual adjustments to the spine in your low back or neck regions.
How Often Do I Need to See the Chiropractor?
When you first begin your treatment, you may need to come in more often, typically once or twice a week. Once you begin to see results, you can often reduce the frequency of your chiropractic adjustments. Some patients have chronic pain and come back as often as needed to manage their back pain. We’re happy to work with your healthcare professional to determine the best course of action for your overall comfort. Most patients have problems related to poor posture and gait related to strenuous activity or a sedentary lifestyle.
