Chiropractic Care for Back Pain

Back Pain

If you’re suffering from back pain that’s affecting your everyday life, then it’s time to come in for a thorough evaluation and consultation with our team. We believe in taking a “whole-patient” approach to treatment, coming up with a personalized treatment and pain management plan to suit your unique needs and lifestyle.

Common causes of upper and lower back pain

There are many potential causes of upper or lower backache, which is why we always begin with a comprehensive evaluation to determine the most likely cause of your pain. This will begin with a discussion of your symptoms with Dr. Morrone, followed by a physical examination and any necessary diagnostic tests (such as X-rays). Once we’re able to determine the cause of your back pain, we can begin working on a treatment plan to help you find relief.  

One of the more common causes of back pain we see in our office is that of poor posture, especially among patients who either spend the majority of the day on their feet without proper foot support and patients who spend most of their day seated without proper lumbar support.

Back injuries are another common cause of back pains and aches. For example, those who have recently been involved in a car accident may suffer from upper back pain caused by whiplash, or a recent slip-and-fall accident may lead to lower back pain due to a herniated or bulging disc.

In some cases, underlying conditions can cause back pain, such as scoliosis (abnormal curvature of the spine) or sciatica (a spinal condition where the sciatic nerve in the lower back becomes compressed).  These conditions can respond very well to chiropractic care as well.  

How chiropractic treatment can help

Gentle chiropractic treatment is ideal for patients suffering from back pain because it is non-invasive and drug-free, which means there are very few risks involved with this holistic treatment. Depending on the specific cause of your back pain, there are many treatment options we may recommend, though spinal adjustment and manipulation is among the most common. Specific chiropractic adjustments, along with corrective exercises and proper nutrition help improve mobility, strength, and improve inflammation to help healing.  This is ideal for patients suffering from back pain caused by whiplash, herniated discs, and even some underlying medical conditions.
