Back Pain, Chiropractic care for back pain

Most back pain can be attributed to two common causes:

  • misaligned facet joints on the back of each spinal bone, and
  • problems with the spinal discs, which can become swollen from injuries and then place pressure on neighboring nerves.

Chiropractic care can successfully relieve this pain, but sometimes people choose to handle it differently. Whether they choose to ignore it, treat it with bed rest, participate in therapy, take medication, or have surgery – none of these options are a cure, but rather treat symptoms, and may lead to a worsened condition or bring about other pains and discomforts.

The chiropractic approach to back pain involves manipulation of the spine to restore function. Affected discs and soft tissues are allowed to heal, nerve association may be reduced and pain can be lessened.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Isn’t some back pain normal?

Back pain is not normal and problems may increase if not addressed. Delaying treatment at the first indications of pain can allow for more damage to occur, or lead to more expensive and invasive treatment options, such as surgery.

What about prescription medications or muscle relaxers?

Prescribed muscle relaxers only mask the problem. Natural treatment, like applying cold packs or ice, can deliver the same results with no side effects.

How does chiropractic treatment work?

Chiropractic care works because the body can heal itself and regulate its many functions with little intervention. Manipulation of specific spinal areas improves the mind-body connection and improves nervous system management of the body.

Will my chiropractic visits be covered by insurance?

Some insurance policies cover at least some chiropractic care. However, if that is not an option available to you, we can help chiropractic maintenance become more affordable for you
