Chiropractic Back Pain Relief

Back pain is an issue that plagues people around the world every day, but you don’t have to be one of them. Dr. Hunter and his team at ActiveSPINE Health and Injury Care in Troy, MI, explain below what might be at the source of your pain and how chiropractic care can provide the back pain relief you desire.

Common Sources of Back Pain

Back pain is a symptom that occurs when something is amiss within the spinal column. This can include misalignment of the vertebra, compressed nerves, herniated discs, muscle tension, muscle strains, ligament sprains, and more.

In most cases, injuries to these spinal components occur as a result of work or other daily or life factors. Some examples include:

  • Sitting at a desk for long periods, especially when done in poor posture
  • Repetitively lifting heavy items or lifting them improperly
  • Being overly active, whether at physical labor or while working out
  • Being overweight or obese

These factors and activities tend to lead to trouble with the spine over time. However, sometimes, the damage occurs due to a car accident, fall, or another sudden event. Additionally, spinal discs tend to wear down as we age, and genetics can factor into the equation.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help

Chiropractors aim to fully relieve your suffering by identifying and treating the underlying cause, as well as any resulting symptoms. For example, if your back pain is due to a misalignment, there is a high likelihood that the misalignment has also led to muscle tension, a herniated disc, or another issue.

Chiropractors develop a comprehensive plan to treat all issues involved. Typically, this begins with chiropractic adjustments to restore proper alignment and remove undue strain from the surrounding components.

Spinal decompression therapy is also highly effective, as it creates space between the vertebra. This removes pressure from the discs and nerves.

Therapeutic exercise can help stretch and strengthen the back, as well as relieve tension, restore range of motion, and improve blood flow. Lifestyle adjustments can also help change poor spinal habits and build healthy ones to enhance healing and prevent pain in the future.
