Pain of any kind is a signal that something’s wrong. Some people mask their symptoms with a pain reliever and ignore the message. That approach is like removing the battery to quiet a smoke detector!
Two Common Causes of Back Pain
The nerve-rich facet joints on the back side of each spinal bone are a common cause of back pain. The pain can be a sign these interlocking “fingers” aren’t moving right.
The discs between spinal bones can be involved, too. Trauma can cause the soft, pulpy material in the middle to bulge, putting pressure on nearby nerves.
We’ve helped many people with safe and natural chiropractic care. However, there are other choices you can make:
- Ignore it (Spinal problems may worsen.)
- Bed rest (May prolong the problem.)
- Therapy (Stresses malfunctioning joints.)
- Medicine (Numbs the body.)
- Surgery (The most serious last resort.)
The Chiropractic Approach
Specific chiropractic adjustments can help improve spinal function. By restoring the way your spine works, discs and soft tissues may heal, nerve involvement may be reduced, pain can ease and better stability can return. Naturally, we think chiropractic is the best choice for your back pain!
Frequently Asked Questions
Pain of any kind, at any age, is a sign that something is amiss. Pain is the way your body signals that a limit has been reached or a problem has developed. While pain may go away in time, if the underlying problem remains unattended, the problem may slowly worsen until it becomes more difficult and expensive to resolve.
Chiropractors don’t dispense drugs. Instead, we rely on natural methods. When properly applied, ice can have an analgesic effect without the unwanted effects associated with some pain medications.
Chiropractic works because you are a self-healing, self-regulating organism controlled by your nervous system. When interference is removed from the nervous system, the body can function optimally and you can feel your best.
