Back Pain Treatment
Back pain is more than a nuisance. It can interfere with your ability to live your days as you desire. For some people, even sitting or lying down at night is unpleasant. Not to mention the other issues that can arise from it. At Mountainview Chiropractic Center, serving Hillsborough Township and the nearby region, we offer treatment to help alleviate back pain and would like to explain what that entails.
Types of Back Pain
Our chiropractor provides treatment for both chronic and acute back pain. For instance, if you sustain a personal injury, such as a car accident, we can provide back pain relief. Let's say you have sciatica from living a sedentary lifestyle throughout the years. In this case, you may experience more symptoms than just back pain, as sciatica can also cause numbness or weakness down a leg. Sometimes, leg pain can also result from this issue.
Fibromyalgia is another condition that can cause both leg pain and lower back pain. In fact, it can cause widespread pain. However, our chiropractor can help. You could also develop arthritis or degenerative disc disease, both of which can arise from wear and tear on your back.
Chiropractic Back Pain Treatment
Whether your back pain stems from a personal injury or occurs as a result of the aging process, our chiropractor can provide you with relief. The process begins with us determining the location, cause, severity, length, and other factors that can affect your treatment plan. We will also review your medical history, which can provide us with insight into your condition.
Based on this information, we can devise a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and overall health. The treatment may include a chiropractic adjustment. With this approach, our chiropractors will manually -- and possibly with the assistance of a tool -- realign your spine and reduce stress on the nearby nerves and soft tissues. This treatment can also improve circulation to promote healing.
Exercise therapy is another option, involving our practitioner guiding you to move your back slowly in different ways. The movements will gradually increase in intensity and frequency to continually improve your condition. Ultimately, this allows you to heal at a pace that works for you, improving function and flexibility over time while simultaneously alleviating your pain.
