Back and neck pain can manifest in various ways to cause discomfort, irritation and lack of range of motion in the body. Back pain affects approximately three million people in the United States annually! Chiropractic care can help keep patients pain-free.
Upper and middle back pain may be caused by muscle or ligament strains, poor posture and damage or tension involving the discs in the spinal column. Low back pain is usually caused by strains or sprains from improper lifting, poor posture, lack of regular exercise, fracture, ruptured disk or arthritis.
This can happen very easily for people who work at a desk five days a week. It can also occur from pressure on the spinal nerves from certain problems, such as a herniated disc. It is important to be mindful of your body and how it is positioned during daily tasks to avoid injury. But sometimes, almost seemingly at random, back pain can strike, causing pain, discomfort and decreased quality of life.
Chiropractic care is a painless, low-risk and non-invasive treatment that can have lasting results to avoid back pain with regular care. It is important to keep the spine healthy, as it is the center of the body and connects to everything, either directly or via the nervous system.
With gentle manipulation and other techniques, the body can be aligned and pain can be reduced or eliminated, depending on the condition. Adjustments allow the nervous system to function optimally and allow the spinal column to deliver water, blood and nutrients to the body. This will help you heal and keep the body functioning at its best with regular care.
After a few sessions, many patients begin to feel relief. Depending on your condition, previous ailments and other factors, the time it takes to reduce or eliminate pain may vary. It is important to regularly visit your chiropractor to see lasting results.
