Did you know up to 80 percent of adults will experience back pain? Spine problems are an inconvenience that can keep us from our favorite activities and are a leading cause of missed workdays and disability. Chiropractic care is an effective way to relieve the common symptoms of back pain, so you can lead a normal and healthy lifestyle.

Adjustments for Back Pain

According to the American College of Physicians and the American Pain Society, spinal manipulation is a preferred treatment method for back pain. If you are unable to walk or move properly, chiropractic can help improve physical function.

Using a controlled amount of pressure, specific hand movements stretch restricted spinal joints, while relaxing the surrounding muscles. A small thrust or “adjustment” realigns the bones to make them straighter and improve joint mobility.

Common Conditions We Treat

Our team of chiropractors are very successful at relieving neck, mid-back and lower back pain. There are many causes of this discomfort, including muscle, tendon or ligament sprains and strains, undue stress on the body and sudden injury. Some of the ailments we treat are:

  • Pinched nerve, which results from the spine narrowing
  • Disc bulge or herniation, or damage to the outer edges of the discs between vertebrae
  • Degenerative arthritis, the gradual breakdown of cartilage and bone

Lower & Middle Back Pain

The lumbar spine connects our upper and lower bodies. It allows us to twist, turn and bend but endures much stress from daily activity. There is a curve in the small of the lower back that provides structural support and stability, called the lumbar lordosis. Over time, pressure on this curve can lead to back pain which unfortunately, is commonly managed with muscle relaxers, over-the-counter medication and steroid injections. Chiropractic care uses spinal manipulation to correct the disturbance in your lumbar lordosis. Our doctors can also suggest lifestyle changes that complement our in-office treatment plans.

The connection between the cervical spine (upper back) and the lumbar spine is called the thoracic spine. Twelve vertebrae run from the base of the neck down to the abdomen. The middle back is the strongest and most stable region of the spine, protecting our organs and nervous system, and helping us stand tall. Common causes of mid-back pain include injury, overuse, degeneration and other forms of trauma. Chiropractic aims to realign the spinal bones where they attach to the thoracic vertebrae.

Use of Direct Digital X-Ray

We have the ability to thoroughly diagnosis our patients using direct digital X-ray! Benefits of this technology include immediate on-screen results, higher image quality and decreased radiation exposure.

Treatment of Subluxation

The term “subluxation” refers to a misalignment of the vertebral column, or backbone. It is a leading cause of back and neck pain that can lead to nerve irritation, a serious medical concern. The spine and central nervous system work together to keep the body functioning properly. When the spine becomes compromised, the nervous system cannot function properly. The nerves that exit the spine control every single cell and organ system (i.e. heart, lungs, stomach, colon, reproductive and immune systems). The goal of regular chiropractic adjustments is to maintain the integrity of the body’s core systems.
