The causes of back pain vary considerably. If a patient is experiencing acute back pain, it may be the result of an injury, such as a muscle strain. If the back pain is chronic, it may be related to a progressive condition, such as osteoporosis or arthritis. Some patients also experience back pain because of herniated or ruptured disks in the back.
Better Chiropractic offers a range of treatment options that may be beneficial for patients with back pain, including chiropractic care, massage, physiotherapy, and more. Each of these treatments can help patients to manage and improve their pain without resorting to more invasive options like surgery. Better Chiropractic recognizes that each case of back pain is unique. Each time a patient reports back pain, the staff at Better Chiropractic takes the time to diagnose the patient accurately and develop an appropriate, individualized treatment plan.
Just as research studies have shown that chiropractic care is more effective in the treatment of neck pain than many other options, similar studies have shown that back pain also responds well to chiropractic care. Chiropractic care can address many of the issues that contribute to back pain, including stiff joints, tense muscles, and problems with the alignment of the spine. Chiropractic care can also be used in combination with other treatment modalities to give patients the best chance of a full recovery.
Some patients are tempted to try to deal with back pain on their own. However, prompt treatment of pain often improves the outcome. Better Chiropractic encourages patients to seek treatment for back pain as soon as possible in order to prevent further damage and promote quick healing.
