Do you suffer from back pain that interferes with your life?
Back pain (low back pain or/and mid back pain) is a common reason why people start chiropractic care. It can effect your ability to work and interact with your family and friends. And can be a debilitating experience, preventing you from doing and feeling your best.
Chiropractic is a drug-free way to help get you back on track by gently adjusting areas of the spinal vertebrae – and usually the pelvis – aiming to re-establish normal motion and position of your bones and joints.
Depending on your specific condition, combining spinal adjustments with some soft tissue remedial massage therapy and an appropriate stretching regime can help you feel great again, naturally.
There can be many possible causes of back pain. Usually, it is mechanical. Meaning improper movement of the spinal column and joints. Other causes such as infection and cancer are more rare.
Our experienced chiropractor approaches back pain by firstly finding the cause with a thorough consultation and examination. We will answer all of your questions.
From there, we will develop a care plan commonly combining spinal adjustments, stretches and exercises that are appropriate to the needs of your condition.
