Back pain can come in many forms and may be accompanied by other symptoms including numbness or leg pain. The following is a short list of conditions involving back pain:
- Disc Injuries/Disc Herniation
- Auto Accident Injuries
- Neck Pain
- Sports Injury
Generally speaking, back pain is usually caused by either age, injury, or some combination of these two factors. Illness may also cause back (fibromyalgia, for example).
Let’s work together to create individualized programs of care for your specific case of back pain. We’re ready to listen to your concerns and provide empathy alongside serious solutions for your condition. Remember that long-term painkiller use is never a solution and that all conservative rehabilitation practices should be attempted before surgery is considered an option.
Chiropractors work to address the causes of back pain in order to provide long-lasting relief without the aforementioned surgery or drugs. By correcting issues within the spine and ensuring that the spine is in good health, chiropractic care directly addresses the health of the central nervous system. The central nervous system controls all the functions of the body, including pain.
Correcting structural issues within the spine accomplishes two major goals: to fix the direct cause of pain (irritation to the nerves caused by misaligned vertebrae, for example) while promoting the body’s ability to heal and function at its best by allowing the central nervous system to function normally.
