Back pain can have a number of causes, and as a result, innumerable adults experience back pain every day. While many people assume that back pain is inevitable, chiropractic care offers natural, holistic methods of relieving this type of pain. At Beyond Medical in Altamonte Springs FL, we help people experiencing back pain. Using tried and true chiropractic methods, the experienced professionals at Beyond Medical can help.
Causes of Back Pain
To treat back pain in the patient, the chiropractor must first determine the cause. People may engage in a variety of activities that can lead to back pain. While some patients experience back pain because of postural problems, other patients experience back pain because of sports injury or automobile accident injury. Misuse of the back as well as and traumatic experiences can cause the muscles of the back to become tight, and can also throw the vertebrae of the back into misalignment. When this happens, subluxations can result.
Subluxations are what occur when the spinal cord becomes pinched in the misaligned vertebrae of the back. In addition to subluxations, the discs in the back become damaged (a condition known as bulging or herniated disc), and other times the vertebrae themselves can become cracked.
A pinched nerve in the back can lead to pain for the patient, as well as miscommunication between the brain and the rest of the body. When signals from the brain get crossed or muddled, this can reduce patient recovery time and can even cause the patient to experience further injury and more pain.
Chiropractic treatment of back pain is all natural and non-invasive. At Beyond Medical in Altamonte Springs FL, our doctors Danielle and Roy Clarke treat back pain with a variety of techniques. Spinal adjustment is performed to return the vertebrae of the back to proper alignment. This helps to eliminate the subluxations in the back and soothe the aching, tight muscles. Our patients also receive massage therapy to reduce muscle stiffness, improve blood flow to the damaged areas of the body, and speed the healing process. To improve mobility, our chiropractors often prescribe stretches and exercises that the patient can perform at home.
Chiropractic care doesn't stop there. Our chiropractors also use lifestyle advice and nutrition counseling to help patients learn to live safely and with reduced risk of injury. By learning to eat right, carry themselves well and avoid engaging in activities that might cause damage to the spine or muscles of the back, our chiropractors can help our patients return to wellness. Over time, chiropractic care can result in improved quality of life.
