To Relieve Your Chronic Back Pain

Millions of people around the world make an appointment with a chiropractor to get help and relief from their back pain. This type of pain can be either acute or chronic. What do these mean?

  • When you have acute back pain, it means the pain suddenly starts, can last up to six weeks and tends to clear up without much intervention.
  • When you have chronic back pain, it means the pain gradually onsets, can last for three months or longer. This type of back pain is extremely debilitating, limiting you in the range of mobility and movement.

The conventional back pain treatments tend to involve:

  • Medication
  • Steroid injections
  • Physical therapy
  • Surgery

Yes, these treatments can alleviate the symptoms, but they don’t get the heart of the real issue. Plus, they can be extremely costly and painful.

Why Does Chronic Back Pain Occur and How Does Chiropractic Care Help?

The primary reason chronic back pain occurs is the result from misaligned vertebrae. A misalignment leads to other issues like impaired joint mobility, body pains and headaches. The treatment for this type of back pain involves realignment the vertebrae so that the spine and the body parts the nerves aid are restored to natural health.

Chiropractors are of the mind that the body can naturally heal itself. They tend not to prescribe medication and often avoid surgery. Surgeons will take a herniated disk out of the spine to relieve the pressure placed on the nerves. Chiropractors, on the other hand, will carry out a non-invasive spinal manipulation to do the same thing.

What Are The Treatments To Deal With Chronic Back Pain?

If you go to a chiropractor, he/she will treat it based on vertebral misalignments that are found in the body. In order for the joint’s motion to be restored, a sudden, rapid force is put upon the right vertebrae.

Another method to effectively treat chronic back pain is called the flexion-distraction technique. A special table is used to effectively stretch the spine out. It’s usually effective for treating disc injuries, which are causing the back pain.

Other effective forms of back pain treatment include:

  • Exercise
  • Massage
  • Physical therapy

Good chiropractors know to work with other healthcare professionals when the situation warrants it. After all, they want to ensure you get the best possible care for your pain. They’ll look at all things in your life – health habits, diet, family, history, medical history and other possible conditions.

Chiropractic care is a holistic treatment, and is better at finding the roof of your chronic back pain problem than the conventional treatments that work on just your symptoms.
