Chiropractic Care for Back Pain at Stern Chiropractic Clinic
Everyone will experience back pain at least once in their lifetime. Usually, pain in the back is not caused by something serious. However, back pain left untreated can lead to a limited range of motion and other health-related issues. While medications can help temporarily alleviate symptoms, they do not treat the root cause of the pain. Whether you are suffering from acute or chronic back pain, contact our team at Stern Chiropractic Clinic in Pensacola for effective relief.
Back pain can be caused by a wide range of conditions. However, we often see patients suffering from this type of pain due to:
- Ligament or muscle strain. Lifting heavy things and sudden awkward movements can cause ligament or muscle strains that lead to pain in the back. It can be especially serious and deliberating if you are in poor physical condition.
- Arthritis. This health condition usually affects the lower back. Osteoarthritis can cause spinal stenosis, which is characterized by a narrowing of the space around the spinal cord.
- Ruptured or bulging discs. The soft tissue inside the discs can rupture or bulge and press on the surrounding nerves, causing pain. We often see patients suffering from sciatica due to herniated or bulging discs.
- Osteoporosis. It is a health condition characterized by the development of painful fractures in the bones.
How Our Chiropractors Can Help
Chiropractic care has proven to be effective for relieving pain and improving the musculoskeletal system's range of motion. Usually, our chiropractor uses spinal adjustments to restore movements in the spine and joints. Many patients find these adjustments more effective than drugs or surgical procedures. Moreover, chiropractic adjustments are painless, non-invasive, and do not have any side effects or complications.
Before starting treatment, our chiropractor will examine the patient to understand what is causing their pain and how severe it is. We will assess the patient's medical history and current health for a thorough diagnosis. Depending on the type of back pain the patient is experiencing, our chiropractor may require imaging tests like x-rays or MRI scans as part of the assessment. This information helps us create a personalized treatment plan that caters to the patient's unique needs.
