Treating Back Pain With Chiropractic Care
Back pain can be one of the worst things to deal with. Among the millions who suffer from it, the severity runs from a dull occasional throb to preventing you from being able to roll out of bed. Even the mildest of cases, however, can be annoying and an unwelcome interference in your life.
While the majority of cases of pain are not life-threatening, pain should never be ignored. It’s the body and mind’s way of communicating to you that something is wrong. Learn below what that “something” might be and how chiropractors like Dr. Melani at Back To Health Chiropractic Center in Lebanon, MO, can help naturally relieve your back pain.
What’s Causing My Pain?
If your back is hurting, there could be many different reasons for it. One of the most common is something you might not think about too much: your posture. Whether you sit at a desk for work, scroll through social media on your couch, or lounge to watch TV or stream, how you sit has an integral impact on your spine. Poor posture can lead to misalignment, herniated discs, and more.
Accidents are another common cause of back pain, as are poor lifting techniques. Additionally, issues like being overweight, wearing non-supportive shoes, and being sedentary, as well as conditions like degenerative disc disease, can all play a role.
How Can a Chiropractor Help?
First and foremost, a chiropractor can help determine the underlying cause of your pain, such as a herniated disc. They can then work with you to determine what caused it, such as poor posture or excess weight. They can then work with you to develop a plan of care utilizing natural techniques that get to the root of your suffering. This plan will include a variety of techniques, such as those listed below.
- Spinal adjustments to restore and maintain proper alignment
- Spinal decompression to relieve pressure from discs and nerves
- Soft tissue techniques to relieve tension and trigger points
- Therapeutic exercise to help correct posture, enhance healing, and more
- Lifestyle counseling to address the habits and various factors that contribute to your injury or condition
