Low back pain is one of the most common ailments affecting an estimated 80 percent of our population. Our Little Silver chiropractors do not give up when it comes to helping you get out of pain and reaching your optimal health potential.
Chiropractic is a drug free, hands-on approach to reducing pain and restoring mobility. Chiropractic care is especially relevant in the relief of back pain in that it is concerned with the central nervous system, which is made up of both the spine as well as the parts of the body responsible for pain (the nerves and the brain). By ensuring total spinal health, chiropractic care enhances the body’s ability to heal itself as well as function at its absolute best.
Chiropractic care for back pain has two main goals: to realign the spine to reduce pain and inflammation, and to increase motion in the joints of the spine to re-establish normal movement and functioning. It is important to understand that back pain is a symptom of a medical condition, not a diagnosis itself. Medical problems that can cause back pain include the following:
Injuries: Spine injuries such as sprains and fractures can cause either short-lived or chronic back pain.
Mechanical problems: A mechanical problem is due to the way your spine moves or the way you feel when you move your spine in certain ways.
Infections and tumors: Although they are not common causes of back pain, infections can cause pain when they involve the vertebrae. Tumors, too, are relatively rare causes of back pain. Occasionally, tumors begin in the back, but more often they appear in the back as a result of cancer that has spread from elsewhere in the body.
Acquired conditions and diseases: many medical problems can cause or contribute to back pain such as scoliosis, arthritis, kidney stones, ect.
Our Little Silver chiropractors can determine the cause of your back pain, and develop a treatment plan that will get you back on the road to living pain free.
