Back Pain

Managing back pain without the use of prescription drugs or surgery is one of the primary areas of focus for a Doctor of Chiropractic.  Patients experiencing pain and symptoms in and around the middle and low back will experience more success using chiropractic than they will with any other modality, according to recent research (see below).

How Does a Chiropractor Manage a Patient with Back Pain?

A Doctor of Chiropractic understands that most lower and middle back complaints arise from misalignment and poor function of the joints in and throughout the patient’s lumbar spine and pelvis.

When these areas are not working properly, symptoms can include:

  • Pain (dull, achy, sharp, stabbing, burning, etc.)
  • Stiffness or tightness of muscles
  • A weak or tired feeling after prolonged work or activity
  • Trouble bending forward, to the sides, or turning side-to-side
  • Pain, numbness, tingling, or weakness in the hips, legs, feet, or toes.
  • Pain in and around the ribs or even radiating to the front of the chest

Remember: A symptom is simply a feedback mechanism from your body to let you know that something underlying is wrong.

Our goal is to detect and correct whatever that underlying spinal problem is for you!

Your chiropractor will locate one or several misaligned areas throughout your spine and hips – these areas will be moving improperly, causing chronic inflammation, and damaging tissues (bones, joints, nerves, discs) that cannot be replaced!

By correcting these spinal misalignments, many things start to happen for patients with back pain:

  • Pain and tension in and around the affected region begin to subside
  • The patient will notice an increased ability to move the spine in all directions
  • Pain in and around the ribs regresses
  • Any pain radiating to the hips, legs, feet, and toes can significantly improve or even regress altogether
  • Conditions such as sciatica start to regress over time – no injections or surgery required!
