Natural Relief From Back Pain
When you live with back pain, you are not living at your full potential. The pain can make it hard to walk, stand, sit, or even lie down in some positions. It’s nearly impossible to enjoy hobbies, focus on work, spend time with family, or even carry out household tasks. And when that pain kicks in, you want nothing more than relief. Dr. Hunnicutt and Dr. Jones at Restore Chiropractic Roswell in Roswell, GA, share how chiropractic care can provide that relief and more below.
The Various Causes of Back Pain
If you’re experiencing pain in your back, it’s a sign that something in your spinal column is not quite right. It could be a misalignment, herniated disc, strained muscle, or compressed nerve, as these are the most common causes of back pain.
Though an auto accident or sports injury could cause these issues, they are often caused by daily life and habits such as:
- Poor posture
- Carrying excess weight
- Lifting heavy objects
- Lifting objects repetitively
- Sitting for long periods
- Sleeping positions
Ongoing conditions like arthritis can also cause pain in the back. Additionally, an issue within the foot, knee, or hip can impact the back.
Chiropractic Care for Back Pain
The most crucial step in relieving back pain is determining the underlying cause, as this tells your chiropractor what needs to be addressed. After determining the root cause, as well as any contributing factors, a customized treatment plan can be developed.
Adjustments are typically a key component in addressing back pain. Restoring alignment to the spine effectively resets the foundation and relieves pressure from the surrounding muscles, nerves, and other soft tissues. Adjustments can be performed on the back, neck, and extremities to correct any misalignment.
Spinal decompression is also commonly used for back pain. It gently stretches the spine, creating space for all the spinal components. This helps relieve tension, relieve pressure on the spinal discs, and release nerve compression.
Soft tissue techniques such as chiropractic massage and therapeutic ultrasound effectively address tension and help relieve strains and other soft tissue injuries. Therapeutic exercises can help correct posture-related issues, stretch and strengthen the back, and improve the flow of blood and healing nutrients.
