Back pain is a common complaint among Americans. In fact, according to Georgetown University’s Institute for Health Care Research and Policy, around 65 million Americans suffered from back pain recently. At Canning Chiropractic, Dr. Chris Canning of Lawrenceville, GA, would like to see "chiropractor near me" becoming the number one search performed by people with back pain, even if they've tried traditional medical intervention already.
Causes of Back Pain
There are numerous causes of back pain. For instance, your back pain could be caused by a bulging or herniated disc that's placing pressure on the surrounding tissue or nerves. Sometimes, the culprit is a chronic condition, like degenerative disc disease or arthritis. Spinal stenosis is a common reason, and it can be either chronic or acute, depending on the underlying cause. Keep in mind that these are merely a few examples.
Treating Back Pain
When you search for "chiropractor near me," you'll find a practitioner who will provide you with a customized treatment approach after conducting a thorough evaluation. Sometimes, the evaluation even includes imaging to help the chiropractor determine the root of the problem.
A chiropractic adjustment, for instance, is one treatment approach for back pain. It consists of a practitioner asking you to lie on an exam table lying downward. Then, the Lawrenceville, GA, practitioner will perform manual manipulation to improve nervous system function and ease pressure on the soft tissue. It's also known to improve circulation, which can facilitate the healing process.
Another possible treatment approach is chiropractic exercise. During this treatment, our chiropractor will guide you through a series of motions that gently move the soft tissue, slowly and gradually. The exercises, over time will increase in difficulty, allowing you to regain function and flexion at a comfortable rate.
Often, lifestyle advice is a component of a treatment plan. The advice may be ways to ease your pain at home without the use of medication. Or, it could be exercises you can do at home, and on what schedule, to optimize your results. Our practitioner can also advise you on how to reduce your risk of a future injury.
We should note that this approach can be used along with a routine chiropractic adjustment.
