Why Chiropractic Care is the Best First Choice for Back Pain
Millions of people turn to chiropractic care for back pain. The process can be very therapeutic and pain-relieving. The results from this alternative treatment to medicine and surgery are highly effective and can really add relief to your aches and pains. The process is non-invasive and can be performed in an outpatient clinic setting. The results speak for themselves, so consider chiropractic services for your future pain treatments.
Chiropractors use hands-on manipulation of the spine to treat back problems that cause you pain. The thought is that proper alignment of the spine will keep the musculoskeletal structure (including the spine) in proper function and in turn allow the body to heal itself without medication or surgery. Manipulation is used to restore mobility to the joints that are restricted from tissue injury. This injury can be caused by an accident, repetitive stress, or sitting for long periods of time (i.e. desk job).
Chiropractic care is alternative medicine mainly used for pain relief and can be used in conjunction with traditional medical treatment. The process involves a physical exam, medical history and even lab tests and imaging that may be necessary to determine the most effective back pain relief treatments. If you need an MRI or CT scan, we can order that for you. The treatment plan is then designed for optimal results, and a series of treatments will be scheduled that will help relief and eventually correction of the problem. The spinal manipulation involves adjusting joints manually using a controlled and quick force to improve the quality of motion in that area.
Chiropractic care is not performed in a bubble. It requires the patient to incorporate healthy diets with exercise and rehabilitation to have an effective outcome. The process can take a while if the injury is very serious, but for acute back pain, it may only take a session or two to start feeling great results.
Other benefits are obtained from chiropractic care, in addition to relief from back pain. This type of care can be very effective in treating neck pain and headaches. The pain felt by osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia can also respond positively to chiropractic care and deep tissue massage.
Medication and surgery can be dangerous and can have many side-effects. The best thing about chiropractic care is that there are no drugs to take or painful surgeries. This process is rarely uncomfortable, but the benefits far outweigh the mild pain you may feel. This treatment process can be extremely effective and allow the person to heal naturally, without drugs, and make it more likely they will not need surgery in the future. Chiropractic care is a wonderful process for correcting the cause of back pain.
