Back Pain Overview
Back pain can be acute or chronic, and it can affect your entire spine from your lower back to your upper back. Acute back pain often comes on suddenly and lasts only a few days or weeks. Chronic back pain, on the other hand, lasts for more than three months. Back pain can be caused by a number of factors, including:
- Spine-related problems
- Herniated or slipped discs
- Degenerative disc disease
- Inflammation of the sacroiliac joint
- Skeletal irregularities
- Accidents or injuries
- Sprains and strains
- Lifestyle triggers such as slouching at your desk, not exercising, or being overweight
How Chiropractic Therapy Can Alleviate Back Pain
There are many treatment and therapy options that can help alleviate back pain, including medication, physical therapy, electrical nerve stimulation, and decompression therapy among others.
One of the most effective treatment options is chiropractic therapy. Chiropractors take a hands-on approach to spinal manipulation to restore the body's proper musculoskeletal structural alignment.
Alignments and Adjustments
Your spine is surrounded by a network of nerves. If it's out of alignment, it can cause nerve irritation or pinching, which is the source of many people’s back pain. Here at McWhorter CNR, identifying spinal misalignments is one of the first things we do to determine the cause of your back pain. We’ll also determine whether or not our patient's lifestyle is causing physical pain problems. Once the misalignments are identified, we’ll work to realign your vertebrae properly in order to alleviate nerve pressure.
Developing a Personalized Treatment Plan
After your misalignments are identified, a comprehensive and personalized treatment plan is created just for you. Often, it will include chiropractic therapy and supplementary treatments and modalities to help you find the long-lasting relief you've been searching for.
Tracking Progress and Making Adjustments to Treatment as Needed
At McWhorter CNR, we don't just create a treatment plan and stick to it, regardless of whether or not you're finding the relief you need. We will conduct regular assessments of the progress you're making and adjust your treatment plan as needed.
Chiropractic Therapy for Neuropathy
If you are one of the 20 million Americans that suffers from neuropathy, you likely know all too well how difficult it is to treat. Though medication can help manage pain to an extent, it’s really only masking the symptoms rather than treating the source of the problem. Chiropractic therapy offers a drug-free way to address the nerve damage that’s causing your pain.
