Relief for Low Back Pain
Back pain is one of the most common health complaints among Americans today. With 8 out of 10 people suffering from it at some point in their lives, according to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health.
The lower back is the most frequent area to be affected. While symptoms often subside within a matter of days or weeks, you might find you require low back pain treatment to eliminate the persistent pain that doesn’t get better with traditional care.
Can a Chiropractor Help?
Chiropractic uses alternative treatments like manual manipulation to align the spine, which allows your body to heal itself more effectively. At the same time, manual manipulation of the spine can relieve muscle tension and reduce compression on nerves that lead to tingling, numbness or pain.
The goal of low back pain treatment is to reduce discomfort and restore mobility. For you, this means the ability to return to activities you enjoy, without persistent pain that affects your ability to function and lowers your quality of life.
What to Expect for Your Treatment
Your first chiropractic treatment will be an opportunity for us to understand your concerns so we can prescribe an appropriate treatment plan for you. The chiropractor will ask questions about your pain and perform a physical examination to assess function.
The treatment itself will take just a few minutes. Your chiropractor will use controlled, quick force to align the vertebrae and improve your motion. With extensive experience in the field of chiropractic, rest assured your treatments will be both safe and comfortable.
Your Treatment Plan
Chiropractic care is progressive, so you will see enhancement with each session. You might begin with appointments once or twice a week, but as you experience improvement, appointments become less frequent. Your activity level will also play an integral role in the effectiveness of your treatments.
