Botti Chiropractic & Wellness | Goodbye to Back Pain

Back Pain; Excruciating and debilitating

Anyone who is experiencing or has experienced back pain would be quick to say that there is nothing worse than a sore and painful back. It hurts while sitting. Standing, too. It can be impossible to sleep peacefully. Performing routine daily activities such as cooking, playing, driving, sitting in a chair at work, and so many others, all become the most unpleasant of experiences, and impossible to ignore.

You may have been told that there is nothing that can be done about back pain, and that getting used to living with a sore back is the only option. Well, according to chiropractors, that notion is entirely a fallacy. Getting rid of back pain isn’t something that happens overnight, but with regular chiropractic care, the root of the problem will be successfully addressed and you’ll be able to enjoy and take part in life again.

Causes of back pain

In most cases of back pain, the cause remains unknown. A doctor cannot identify the cause with a test or an imaging study. The most common conditions that are likely to result in back pain include:

  • Muscle or ligament strain
  • Repeated heavy lifting
  • A sudden awkward movement
  • Structural problems

How is back pain diagnosed?

Usually, back pain is diagnosed only by a physical examination in which your doctor may test your ability to stand and walk, the range of motion of your spine, your ability to detect sensations in your legs, and your reflexes. If your doctor suspects some serious condition, he may order tests such as x-ray, blood and urine tests, CT scan, MRI, EMG, etc.

Traditional treatments for back pain

The most common treatments for back pain include medications (such as rubs, ointments, muscle relaxants, or antidepressants) and surgery.

Alternative forms of treatment & Chiropractic care

There is an alternative therapy that is very effective in dealing with back pain: chiropractic care. A chiropractor will first perform a complete assessment of the injury, associated pain, flexibility, lifestyle habits, exercise regimen, and day-to-day routine. After that,  he deems it necessary, he may order tests such as x-ray, among others. The chiropractor will recommend the best treatment option based on the scope of your injury and your pain. Generally, a chiropractic adjustment is most effective in relieving pain, pressure, and stiffness in your back; your chiropractor may also suggest either physical therapy or postural restoration. With regular visits to your chiropractor and a self-care routine that will likely include stretching, exercise, and some lifestyle changes, you’ll soon start feeling better.
