Whether acute or chronic, back pain can severely impact daily life. Turning to chiropractic care can help alleviate ongoing back pain safely, effectively, and non-invasively. At Mitchell L. Kaplan, DC, our chiropractor can help create a personalized treatment plan to help you get back to living your best life. Here’s what you need to know about back pain and how we can help.
What Causes Back Pain?
Back pain can stem from several sources but is caused by an injury or disease. Injuries can strike unexpectedly and can be a simple fall or a serious car accident. Injuries to the spine usually include fractures or tears in the soft tissues surrounding the spine. Whiplash, a common injury, can be treated with chiropractic care. Other times, chronic diseases or conditions cause back pain. Arthritis, degenerative disc disease, scoliosis, and osteoporosis are examples of common conditions that we often see cause back pain. Poor posture can also cause back pain.
What Other Symptoms Can I Expect?
While back pain can certainly be uncomfortable, it is often accompanied by other symptoms. Commonly, people who suffer from back pain will also experience numbness and tingling in the back. Depending on the area of the back that was injured, numbness may extend to the neck, shoulders, buttocks, or limbs. Our chiropractor will run various tests and assess your medical history to diagnose the root cause of your back pain or discomfort.
How a Chiropractor Can Help
Our chiropractor provides a safe, non-invasive approach to healing back pain and maintaining overall health. We provide a whole-person approach to our chiropractic care. Meaning we will not only treat your symptoms but also ensure your entire body is functioning properly. If one part of the body is weak or damaged other parts have to compensate, leading to other health conditions that need to be addressed when treating back pain.
Our chiropractor offers non-invasive treatment options for back pain relief. Manual manipulation, therapeutic massage, heat therapy, and electric stimulation are all common treatment techniques used when treating back pain. Our chiropractor will determine what combination of therapies and techniques will help you recover from back pain and prevent it from reoccurring.
