You might sustain a back injury playing sports, falling down, lifting something heavy, being in a car accident, or having a physically demanding job. Risk factors for back pain include carrying excess body weight, lack of strength and flexibility, stress, and older age.
To find the root cause of back discomfort, the Active Chiropractic team reviews your symptoms, lifestyle, medications, and medical history. They check your blood pressure, pulse, and other vital signs.
Your specialist also completes a comprehensive physical exam to look for signs of injuries, diseases, and age-related wear-and-tear. Your provider might order blood tests, nerve-function tests, X-rays, MRIs, or other imaging procedures before developing a personalized treatment plan.
Based on the severity and cause of your back pain, the Active Chiropractic team may recommend one or more of the following treatments:
While you relax on a comfortable chiropractic table, your specialist uses manual manipulation to align your spine, reduce muscle tension, ease pressure on pinched nerves, improve blood flow, and enhance healing.
They may recommend more than one type of treatment to offer you the most effective back pain relief and may alter your treatment plan as needed. Taking advantage of the holistic treatments available at Active Chiropractic can reduce the need for pain medicine and surgery.
