Back Pain Treatment
Both lower and upper back pain can be incredibly difficult to live with, especially for people that have never suffered from such a debilitating ailment. It can be scary to live with acute and chronic lower and upper back pain, and it can seem as if there is no end in sight. Fortunately, there is care available through a chiropractor. A chiropractor is a trained medical provider that can help alleviate all types of back pain, as well as treat any other associated pain such as neck pain and shoulder pain.
At Colonia Spine & Wellness in Colonia, NJ, we want to help you find relief from back pain and experience life. With the help of a trained chiropractor on our team, you may start to feel relief permanently instead of simply masking the symptoms of back pain.
Causes of Back Pain
There is no shortage of causes to lower and upper back pain. Depending on the type of injury you sustain, pre-existing conditions, and any other factors dealing with your unique physical body, your cause of lower or upper back pain might be different than another person's.
Therefore, it's important to find the root cause of your back pain. Some of the most common causes include issues with posture and misalignment of the spine in cases of upper back pain. For lower back pain, some of the more serious causes that can be difficult to treat include sciatica, spinal stenosis, and herniated disc.
All these issues may occur due to poor spinal health, and many of them may be helped by a chiropractor in order to prevent pain from reoccurring. Strained or sprained back muscles can also contribute to lower back pain, and tension can contribute to upper back pain.
Ways a Chiropractor Can Help
A chiropractor on our team can help recognize the root cause of your back pain by conducting physical exams as well as imaging tests to determine the extent of any pre-existing injuries. He may also ask questions about your back pain and use all that information to provide chiropractic care.
Chiropractic treatment can include spinal decompression, which can help alleviate pain associated with compressed nerves and herniated discs. In addition, stretches can be great at helping reduce muscle tension, helping reduce inflammation, and helping you feel relaxed overall. Manual adjustments can help realign the spine and restore posture and balance.
