Rivertown Chiropractic & Wellness Offers Care for Back Pain
Back pain is a common problem that affects up to 80% of the U.S. population at some time in their lives. Pain, stiffness, and lack of range of motion can impact your ability to perform work tasks and enjoy recreational activities you love. Chiropractic care can help with non-invasive, drug-free techniques to help these issues. Rivertown Chiropractic & Wellness in Stillwater, MN, we offer a variety of treatments to relieve back pain and problems with function.
Back Pain Symptoms
Symptoms of back dysfunction can manifest in a number of ways. There may be shooting or stabbing pain on movement or a dull ache that is continuous. Standing, walking or simply sitting can worsen the discomfort. Some individuals with back pain experience tingling or numbness in the legs, which may also be accompanied by weakness in the extremities. Bending or stretching may be limited. Pain may lessen when the individual is in a reclining position. Nerve compression, such as with sciatica, can also produce pain and other symptoms.
Causes of Back Pain
Overuse and strains are common causes of back pain. An injury to the back, such as in an auto accident or from an athletic impact can also cause pain. Certain degeneration conditions, such as disc disorder and arthritis can also cause back pain. Scoliosis, a curvature of the spine, and osteoporosis caused by aging can also produce painful symptoms.
Back Pain Treatment
Your Stillwater chiropractor will design a care plan to suit your unique needs. Manual adjustment may be used to re-align spinal discs and vertebrae for better function. Active release and myofascial release may be used to improve muscle function. Drop table techniques may be needed to relieve spinal pressure. Heat or cold therapy can help to relieve strained muscles and aid healing. Cold laser therapy is used to stimulate bio-modulation deep within tissues. The chiropractor can also advise you on ergonomic adjustments you can make in your work and home life to prevent further injury.
