What Causes Back Pain?
Back pain can be either acute or chronic, depending on the cause and conditions. You could overwork the muscles and other soft tissue in your back. A strain is a prime example. On the other hand, your back pain may stem from a chronic issue, like arthritis or fibromyalgia.
If you have gotten into an auto accident recently, you might have a condition called whiplash. Even if the accident was weeks or even months ago, the whiplash might still be affecting you now. The good news is that chiropractic care is here to help.
How Is Back Pain Diagnosed?
You may come to us with a diagnosis already, although we'll likely perform our examination as well. If you haven't already seen a doctor for your back pain as of yet, we can still assist with chiropractic care.
Once we get to know you more through your medical history report, a chiropractor on our team will also ask you further questions specifically about your back pain, such as when it began, the severity, etc.
We might also ask you to move in certain directions to assess your range of motion and will gently press on the area to evaluate you for inflammation and tenderness.
How Can a Chiropractor Help With Back Pain?
We can help with a range of different problems, including back pain. How we approach the situation will depend on why you have back pain?
A common treatment we recommend for patients with back pain is a chiropractic adjustment. These treatments consist of our chiropractor manually manipulating the spine using controlled force and motions. Ultimately, the point of a chiropractic adjustment is to realign any vertebrae in the back that could be placing pressure on the nearby soft tissue or nerves.
We may recommend exercise therapy to optimize your range of motion and help you maintain it. You'll perform exercises we suggest and we may gradually increase in intensity and difficulty throughout your treatment. We might also suggest at-home remedies to help.
