It's hard to imagine any form of pain more consistently and continuously agonizing than back pain. When injury, degenerative joint problems, nerve impingement or chronic muscle strain strike the central "pillar" that supports and balances your entire body, the resulting pain can make it impossible for you to enjoy any quality of life whatsoever. But if you've been putting off treatment because you're afraid that it might involve major surgery, we have good news for you here at Brackney Chiropractic Health Centers. Our chiropractor, Dr. Michael Brackney, can provide the relief you desperately need entirely through conservative, safe, non-surgical means.
Back pain can seem even more frustrating when you're not sure what's causing it. While some incidents of back pain are clearly related to a recent traumatic accident or obvious physical changes such as pregnancy, others can lurk hidden for a long time before you start experiencing symptoms. Common causes of back pain include:
It's worth nothing that a spinal misalignment can produce several of these conditions simultaneously. When your body is off-balance, certain joints and muscle groups will experience unnatural stress, causing muscle spasms, stiffness, and premature joint wear. At the same time, abnormal pressure on a bulging disc in the back may cause it to herniate, leading to sciatica or other back pain issues. Even foot abnormalities such as fallen arches can lead to low back pain.
The first step toward achieving back pain relief at Brackney Chiropractic Health Centers is a full spinal examination. We can evaluate your vertebral alignment, balance, stance, and gait to discover the exact location and nature of the underlying problem.
If your vertebral joints or discs are out of position, chiropractic adjustments can bring them back into line, taking stress off of nerves and muscles in the process. Massage therapy relieves pain and tightness in injured or chronically strained soft tissues, while low-level laser therapy relieves inflammation and speeds healing. Prescribed exercises can lend strength and flexibility to your back muscles. Orthotics can relieve leg/foot imbalances that contribute to back pain. If your sports technique, workplace ergonomics or everyday habits are causing poor posture or muscular strain, we can suggest changes to help you help your back.
