Chiropractic Care for Long-Term Back Pain Relief
Do you find that medication and other medical solutions aren’t relieving your back pain? Or are you tired of taking medication that isn’t actually solving the problem that is causing the pain in your back? Medication is only used to help mask or reduce the pain you feel in your back without getting to the source of the problem in the first place.
There are many possible causes for back pain and a number of different ways that people try to find relief. One solution that is often overlooked is chiropractic care. Chiropractic adjustments get to the root of the problem, rather than temporarily masking it and bring about pain relief that is long-term and permanent.
Common Causes of Back Pain
Back pain can manifest in a number of different ways can be caused by a number of things. Below are three of the most common reasons for the pain that you may be experiencing.
Injury or Trauma
It’s possible for individuals to unintentionally overexert themselves when lifting heavy objects or move in a way that causes pain. Depending on the severity of the injury or trauma, back issues can lead to extreme nerve pain, a herniated disc, or chronic back pain.
Some individuals face chronic pain and other types of medical conditions that have nothing to do with an action they took (such as overexerting during heavy lifting) or some outside circumstances (getting into an accident). Different types of medical conditions can cause or worsen back pain, including but not limited to conditions, such as inflammation of the joints, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, scoliosis, and more.
The choices an individual makes through their lifestyle can also impact the back pain they experience, including lifestyle choices that may not seem to have a direct correlation to pain in the back. Common lifestyle choices that can impact the health of the back are eating habits, level of exercise, smoking, weight gain, and so on. In general, a sedentary lifestyle and poor eating habits can contribute to weight gain, which puts added stress onto the spine and cause it to go out of alignment, leading to more problems.
Regardless of what has caused or is causing your pain, it’s common for individuals to use medication to try and deal with the pain, but this is not a long-term solution, nor does it get to the root of the pain.
How a Chiropractor Can Help with Back Pain
An experienced Norcross chiropractor from Phoenix Chiropractic can help you alleviate not only the level of pain you’re experiencing in your back, but a chiropractor can also get to the source of the problem.
Chiropractic adjustments by a Norcross chiropractor help to put the spine back into its ideal alignment. This helps the body distribute the weight correctly and also reduces or relieves nerve interference, improving communication between the brain and the rest of the body.
A study on chiropractic care and lower back pain shows how a 10-year-old boy sought out chiropractic care after experiencing pain in the lower back as a result of a fall. The pain he was experiencing disappeared after just 6 weeks without any adverse effects.
