Back Pain & Chiropractic Care
As anyone who suffers from chronic back pain knows, inflammation and discomfort can make living a normal life difficult. Thankfully, our Santa Rosa team at Lance O’Connor Chiropractic can help. We offer a wide range of non-invasive care options to help get you feeling better and back to enjoying your favorite activities as soon as possible.
Back Pain Causes
There are a wide range of reasons as to why back pain happens. Sport injuries, car accidents, work incidents, or even just sleeping in an awkward position can cause discomfort. Pregnancy and weight changes can put pressure on different parts of the spine to cause uncomfortable pressure. And even underlying health issues related to age, degeneration, sciatica, bulging discs, scoliosis, and others may even be the root cause. Each person’s body and needs are different.
Both acute and chronic back pain are conditions that need to be addressed by a medical professional. After an initial review, a chiropractor can then help determine whether simple adjustment can help or if additional treatment options are necessary.
Subluxation and Other Health Problems
In some cases, back pain is caused by subluxations. Simply put, this is a situation where one or more of the bones in your spine move out of position, which can irritate or put pressure on spinal nerves and cause discomfort. When patients experience this type of injury, it is important to seek medical attention via chiropractic care. The reason is that having the spine out of alignment can cause more than just back pain, including chronic headaches, dizziness, coordination problems, and much more.
Available Treatments and Pain Management Techniques
One of the biggest causes of prescription drug abuse is chronic back pain. Patients visit their general practice doctors who think they are helping by prescribing painkillers, only to mask the symptoms and create a large problem overall. In addition, some patients also opt for over-the-counter medications, which can lead to thinking that the injury is no longer a problem and lead to even further damage. Instead, it is important to work with a chiropractic team who specializes in back pain to help determine the problem and put together an effective treatment plan.
Of course, these are only a few facets to completely understanding back pain and related discomfort. To really determine what the root cause of your pain entails, it is important to undergo a thorough examination by a chiropractor.
