Back Pain Treatment
Back pain is a common problem seen by chiropractors. In fact, 80% of people will experience back pain at some point. At Davis Family Chiropractic and Massage in Vancouver, we offer natural and effective back pain treatment.
Common Causes of Back Pain
There are many potential causes of back pain. Chiropractic care begins by diagnosing the underlying cause and then treating it. Common causes include personal injury, sports injury, or car accident injury. Strained or sprained muscles, poor posture, bulging or herniated discs, and daily life can also cause back pain.
Types of Back Pain
There are a few types of back pain, including upper back pain, lower back pain, and sciatica. Upper back pain occurs in the upper back and can also affect the neck and shoulders. Lower back pain occurs in the lower back and can also affect the hips and legs. Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve, which begins in the spine and ends in the legs, becomes pinched or irritated. This can cause pain in your lower back, buttocks, and legs.
Back Pain Treatment
We offer several options for back pain treatment, including spinal manipulation, massage, spinal decompression, and lifestyle recommendations.
Spinal manipulation is the basis of chiropractic care. Spinal misalignment is often an underlying cause of back pain. Misalignment can also cause pain in other areas of the body and make you more susceptible to injury. Our chiropractor will use spinal manipulation to gently correct misalignments. This can relieve pain, improve blood flow, and speed up healing.
Therapeutic massage is an excellent complement to chiropractic adjustment. Massage can relieve muscle tension, which can contribute to pain and misalignment. It also helps you relax your mind and body and increases blood and lymphatic flow.
Spinal decompression is a non-invasive treatment for bulging or herniated discs. It creates negative pressure within the spine, which takes the pressure off the injured disc, providing healing and allowing it to go back into place. This is often performed with a spinal decompression table.
Lifestyle recommendations can help with back pain and your overall health. Your chiropractor may recommend an exercise regimen, nutritional changes, or posture correction.
Corrective exercises can help you get the most out of chiropractic care. Your chiropractor will discuss which exercises are best for you based on your condition and lifestyle. These exercises can help with spinal alignment, strengthen muscles, and improve flexibility.
