3 Ways Chiropractic Care Alleviates Back Pain
Back pain impacts your entire lifestyle. Whether the pain stems from an injury or it was caused by poor posture, it contributes to gradual changes in the way that you move. A chiropractor helps alleviate the pain through spinal manipulation and decompression therapy so that you feel comfortable and can enjoy greater mobility in your back
A key way that chiropractic care at Kilian Chiropractic helps address back pain is through spinal decompression therapy. We use chiropractic treatments to alleviate pressure in the discs of the spine. When pressure builds up, it causes a herniated disc or a pinched nerve in the back. The decompression therapy reduces pain by eliminating or reducing the pressure and allowing the back to heal naturally.
Spinal manipulation, which is a gentle movement of the back and spine to improve the alignment of your spine, helps stretch out the muscles and spine so that you reduce pain. Over time, the treatments help improve your posture so that you no longer feel pain and discomfort that stems from sitting or standing with poor posture on a regular basis. Depending on the situation, the amount of time required to improve your posture will vary.
Alleviating Pain from Injuries
Injuries from a car accident, playing a sport or even tripping and falling during cold weather can result in back pain. Chiropractic care helps alleviate pain from an injury by stretching out the muscles. Many injuries impact the soft tissue of the back, or the muscles that support your spine, which results in pain. Although a strain or sprain takes time to fully heal, chiropractic treatments help strengthen and stretch the muscles to alleviate the pain while your body heals.
Back pain stems from a variety of situations and concerns. It can relate to injuries, pregnancy, poor posture or even just an awkward movement that strains the muscles.
