The back muscles and joints are used in several types of movements. The most common causes of back pain include arthritis, pulled muscle or tendon, slipped discs, herniated discs, osteoporosis, ruptured discs, stress, fibromyalgia, and other types of conditions. Auto accidents or sports injuries are also common causes of back pain. A comprehensive back inspection needs to be performed to determine what is causing the back pain.

The treatment plan can include chiropractic adjustments to improve the alignment of the spine and relieve pressure on the nerves. Other treatment programs, such as physical therapy, massage therapy, stretching, and acupuncture can also be combined with chiropractic care. These techniques work to improve blood and reduce inflammation to promote healing in the back.
Is chiropractor care safe for back pain relief?
Chiropractic care is renowned for its safety in the treatment of back pain and other conditions. Our methods are natural and non-invasive, meaning you can avoid pain medications and risky surgeries. These techniques provide longer lasting results, as well. Our chiropractor also works with you and explains all treatments before beginning them.
How many chiropractic sessions will be required for back pain?
Everyone responds differently to chiropractic care, so it is difficult to be certain about how many sessions will be required for complete recovery from the back pain.
