Back pain effects many individuals as a result of strenuous activities performed throughout the day and can interfere with our daily lives. As we grow older, our bodies grow more susceptible to back pain. Chiropractic care for inflammation and back pain, whether it be chronic or acute, provides non-invasive, drug-free relief. Chiropractic care has been proven to be more effective than traditional medical care for many patients. On average, about 53% of back surgeries performed are unnecessary and/or are unsuccessful in decreasing back pain. While narcotics and other medications may reduce symptoms, neither is effective in targeting or treating the cause of pain. Chiropractors use spinal adjustments to avoid unnecessary surgeries and successfully treat back pain.
Manipulation of the spine allows for improvement of mobility, range of motion in the joints, and the body’s overall ability to heal itself all while reducing back pain and inflammation. Chiropractic adjustments on the central nervous system including the spine, nerves and brain ensure total spinal health by stimulating these parts of the body that are responsible for pain. The main goal of a chiropractic adjustment is to properly align the spine to restore functionality. Additional benefits patients may experience are reduced nerve irritability and improve range of motion in the back.
