Chiropractic Care For Back Pain
DR. MICHAEL DORN, D.C.
Common Causes of Back Pain
Back pain can be caused by a number of factors that put stress on the spine and surrounding muscles and ligaments. People who are not physically active may have weak back muscles that do not support the spine well, resulting in pain. Those who exercise too strenuously after a prolonged period of inactivity might put excessive strain on the back. A job that requires you to lift, push/pull, or twist often will increase the risk of a back injury. Sitting all day at a desk, with poor posture, can also injure your back.
Then there are things that you cannot control, such as age and heredity. Your back gets weaker as you age. Some genetic disorders that run in your family might also contribute to your back pain.
The wide range of back pain we treat includes those caused by herniated and bulging discs, degenerative discs, pinched nerves, spinal stenosis, sciatica, and much more.
We utilize many options that are proven to help with back pain including spinal decompression, cold laser therapy, chiropractic, manual therapy, stretches and rehab.
In the early stages of treatment, you may be coming into the office several times a week. As your pain improves, the number of appointment can decrease.
No, going to the chiropractor helps your body heal naturally. You will find relief from routine adjustments, but your body does not become dependent on spinal adjustments to function properly.
A Holistic Approach To Treating Back Pain
You have probably taken pain medication to get relief from your back pain. The problem is that medication only masks the symptoms. Our approach is different. We take an integrated, holistic approach to treating your pain. We identify the cause of your pain, and we fix the problem at the source. This is a healthier and more natural approach to pain treatment.
We focus on non-surgical and drug-free approaches to pain relief. One of the methods we use for your back pain is spine decompression. This removes the pressure off of the spinal discs between your vertebrae. This allows the spinal discs to retract back into alignment, which removes pressure from the nerves and other structures around the spine. The decompression allows fluids and oxygen move more freely into the discs to promote their healing.
In addition to treating your back, we also go a step further and assess how your daily routines and lifestyle affect the health of your back. If your job requires you to sit at a desk for most of the day, we might offer tips on your posture and what you can do to stretch your back in order to make it stronger. We can bring diet and exercise into the picture so your back can be supported by an overall improvement in your total body health.
