Back pain is debilitating. Many people suffer from it. Some believe they just have to "live with it." That's not the case in most situations. Come in to see your Stillwater chiropractor at Northland Chiropractic Clinic. Let our team diagnose the underlying cause and offer treatment options for you
Different Types of Back Pain
If your back is hurting, you should seek out care. Back pain location plays a role in developing a treatment option for you.
Lower back pain is most common. It often includes pain that runs into the hips and legs. It can limit movement.
Middle back pain is often related to muscle and nerve inflammation. It can cause shooting pain across your back and into your lower back.
Upper back pain is common for those who are involved in a traumatic accident or sports injury. The pain may include the neck, shoulders, and arm.
When you come in to see our team, we'll diagnose the underlying cause of your pain no matter where it is located.
Causes of Back Pain
Back pain stems from a variety of causes. Many times, it is chronic, meaning it develops over a longer period of time. In other cases, an injury is the cause. Some common lower and upper back pain causes include:
Poor posture and form: Not standing properly with the alignment of your spinal column puts pressure on the joints and nerves, leading to pain. This is one of many upper back pain causes.
Career and ergonomics in the way you sit and stand can cause misalignment as well.
Living an active lifestyle, though good for you, puts you at a higher risk of developing back pain.
Muscle strain occurs when you push, pull, tear, and stretch your muscles too far, causing inflammation.
Bulging discs can cause pinched nerves and limited movement often due to misalignment of the spinal column.
Treatment Back Pain with Chiropractic Care
We offer numerous treatments for back pain through chiropractic care. This includes the following:
Chiropractic Care: The manipulation of the spinal column can better align it, taking pressure off your spinal column and nerves. Manipulation involves applying specific force and hand thrusts at various speeds to improve the structure of the spinal column.
Massage Therapy: Massage therapy works to help reduce inflammation in the area. It can help improve nerve pain, too.
We create a customized treatment plan right for your needs when you come in to see our team.
