Contact us right away for an appointment with one of our chiropractors for natural and effective back pain relief. Let’s look at a few questions that we run into regarding back pain.
What Can Cause Back Pain?
Most back pain is caused by strain on the muscles, tendons, and ligaments. In many cases, this is exacerbated by a misalignment of the spine. When the spine is out of proper alignment, it can pull on those supporting structures and cause irritation. Some back pain, particularly lower back pain that radiates through the buttocks and down the leg, is caused by irritation or inflammation of the sciatic nerve. This is a shooting pain that can cause weakness in the affected leg.
How Does Chiropractic Care Alleviate Back Pain?
Chiropractic care alleviates back pain by getting the spine back into proper alignment. The supporting structures are then able to move freely as they were intended to move. Most people will notice some measure of back pain relief after the first appointment. Each appointment builds upon the previous one to slowly get the spine corrected. The adjustments are gentle but effective. Once the spine is in proper alignment, the focus becomes keeping it there through maintenance appointments.
Can Anything Else Help?
Your chiropractor may give you supplemental care instructions. These include things like special stretches or strengthening exercises that support the spine. You may also be provided with instructions on how to keep your posture straight.
Following all of the instructions provided by the chiropractor helps you feel as much relief as possible. The ultimate goal is for you to live a full life that isn’t being hampered by back pain, stiffness, or any symptoms that are related to these issues.
