Many people seeking relief from back pain choose chiropractic treatment over alternative pain treatments. Back pain may be a result of many causes, such as auto accidents, muscle strains, poor posture, or sports injuries. Back pain can also cause pain in the arms, legs, neck, and cause headaches. Because Chiropractors use safe spinal manipulation and adjustments while encouraging positive lifestyle changes to aid in the relief of back pain, they can help achieve relief without just prescribing over-the-counter pain medications.
To fully diagnose the cause of back pain, a chiropractor will first take a medical history from the patient and then perform a physical evaluation. They may also use lab tests or a form of diagnostic imaging to determine the appropriate treatment. A plan is then created that may involve one or more manual adjustments using a controlled swift force to improve the quality and range of motion, along with nutritional counseling and rehabilitation. Your chiropractor’s main goal is to restore your back’s proper function and to prevent further injury, as well as relieving your immediate back pain.
