Chiropractic Care for Back Pain
Living with back pain can make basic everyday tasks far more difficult to do. People often think the solution to this is surgery, medication, or just ignoring it. However, chiropractic care is a noninvasive treatment option to relieve back pain and help people live without discomfort. Here at Foundation Chiropractic, our team is committed to helping you eliminate your back pain, so you can live comfortably.
Causes of Back Pain
There are a number of reasons that you may be experiencing back pain. Here are some of the common reasons for back pain:
- Auto accident - Car accidents can severely injure your spine, including herniated and bulging discs. Sudden impacts can push the discs out of alignment and can even cause a rupture to the disc. This leads to the gel inside the disc to leak out and cause nerve pain. Your back is the center where nerves, muscles, and ligaments come together and can easily be injured in a car accident leading to severe pain and limited motion. Sudden jerking movements and impact can cause fractures in the spine and the facet joints. We offer help for whiplash and are trained in whiplash traumatology.
- Sciatica - Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve is pinched or irritated. This causes shooting pains from the buttocks down the leg. A spinal misalignment can lead to sciatica. This happens when the structures in the hip and lower back compress the sciatic nerve, which leads to irritation and inflammation. Chiropractic adjustments work to properly realign the spine there by removing pressure from the sciatic nerve. In some cases, sciatica is caused by a herniated or slipped disk or narrowing of the spinal canal. Typically, sciatica symptoms will only impact one side of the body.
- Poor posture - With more people working from home, neck and back pain is quickly on the rise. Most people don’t pay attention to their posture in the comfort of their own space. The act of looking down at a smartphone also puts pressure on the neck vertebra and surrounding soft tissues. Our team will work with you to correct your posture and help to alleviate whatever back pain you are experiencing.
Chiropractic Treatment for Back Pain
At Foundation Chiropractic, we offer several different types of ways to adjust your spine to help with back pain. These include instrument adjusting, drop table adjustments and specific hands-on adjustments.
Our Team Can Help
Treatment for pain associated with spinal injuries or disorders doesn’t need to be invasive. Our treatment is non-invasive and frequently painless. We employ specific hands-on or instrument adjusting of the body to release pressure that causes pain in certain areas. Gradually, discs are freed from nerve interference helping to alleviate nerve pain. Through consistent treatment and attention, mobility begins to return again and pain can thus begin to cease. At Foundation Chiropractic, we are here to serve the Auburn area with quality chiropractic care.
