Back Pain Treatment
Chiropractic care in Waterford Township is a safe and non-invasive way to treat back pain. In fact, our board-certified chiropractor at Aspire Family Chiropractic can help your pain go away. We take a holistic approach to wellness and will likely recommend good nutrition, lifestyle changes, and routine spinal adjustments to prevent re-injury or pain.
Types of Spine-Related Back Pain
The pain may be acute or chronic and can occur in the lower, upper, or middle back. However, pain tends to develop more frequently in the lower or lumbar spine. This segment of the spine is highly flexible and engineered to facilitate a wider range of motion. Regardless, pain can occur at any of these areas of the back due to direct injury, repetitive use, worn spine, and aged intervertebral discs. Other causes are a sedentary lifestyle and vertebral subluxations.
Back Pain Conditions a Chiropractor Can Help Treat
Doctors of Chiropractic are trained to diagnosed and treat spinal or musculoskeletal conditions that trigger pain, including these:
- Bulging or herniated disc(s)
- Soft tissue strains or sprains
- Pinched or inflamed spinal nerve
- Degenerative disc disease
- Spinal stenosis (narrowing of the spinal canal)
Symptoms will depend on the location of the injury or underlying condition. Nevertheless, a sudden sharp or dull nagging pain lasting for weeks is a surefire sign of back problems. Other typical symptoms include:
- Stiffness or muscle spasms
- Reduced mobility
- Pain radiates to the shoulder, arm, buttock, or leg
- Trouble bending, standing, or walking, without pain
- Pinched nerve symptoms, such as numbness and tingling, in the upper or lower extremities
Chiropractic Care for Back Pain
We will need to do a detailed evaluation of your spine and symptoms to determine the right course of treatment. If you are a good candidate for chiropractic care, we will go ahead and tailor a wellness plan that suits your needs.
Dr. Robinson is trained in a variety of chiropractic techniques he can use to adjust (realign) your spine, which helps eliminate interferences with the nerve and disc. Dr. Robinson may use table traction therapy or flexion-distraction therapy to help a herniated disc or bulging assume its natural position and heal. Massage therapy and electrical muscle stimulation are additional therapies for relieving muscle pain and speeding up the healing process.
If you are pregnant and experiencing pain in the lower back, we can gently adjust the spine and provide other prenatal chiropractic therapies.
