Back Pain

This common condition can stem from various causes, ranging from simple strains to more complex conditions like disc injuries, stenosis, fractures, and instability. While the pain itself is an obvious symptom, there are often associated issues that individuals may not immediately connect to back pain.

Symptoms Beyond the Pain

Back pain is not just about the discomfort in your back; it can manifest in various ways. Individuals may experience pain radiating down the legs, numbness in specific areas of the legs or feet, and even connections to knee issues. The interplay between different body parts is crucial to understanding and addressing the root causes of back pain.

Examination Process

To effectively address back pain, we conduct a thorough examination. This involves a detailed assessment to identify the specific cause of the problem and rule out any unrelated issues. X-rays help our providers to pinpoint the areas of concern. A collaborative discussion between the doctor and the patient ensures a comprehensive understanding of the diagnosis.

How We Help

Back pain treatment options vary and we always tailor them to each patient’s condition. In many cases, chiropractic adjustments are beneficial. Additional treatments may include:

  • Electrical muscle stimulation with a hydro bed or massage chair
  • Cold laser therapy to aid cell regeneration and healing
  • Home stretching exercises for ongoing self-care

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to go forever?

Do you provide customized care plans?

Yes, individualized treatment plans are based on the nature and severity of the back pain.

What are some ways to prevent back problems?
