Of all the reasons patients come to visit a chiropractor, lower back pain may be the most common. Whether you are suffering from a car accident injury or some other form of pain in the back, chiropractic care may make the difference between living in pain and having a pain-free and productive lifestyle.
A car accident may affect the vertebrae in your spine, which may have been compressed or stretched. This may cause herniated discs and nerve pain. When your head whips back and forth in an accident, it may extend past its normal range of motion, and force vertebrae to move out of alignment. This may cause severe pain. Our chiropractor physicians may give you a series of spinal adjustments that may allow the vertebrae to move back to their correct positions. This will allow the surrounding tissue to heal and the pain to move away.
R&R TIP: Most patients require a combination of treatment options to arrive at a full recovery.
At The Neck and Back Clinics, our chiropractor physicians are experienced in a number of different treatments for pain in the back and spine area. Whether you are suffering from the results of a car accident injury, a slip-and-fall accident or another form of damage to your spine, we may find a form of chiropractic care to help with your chronic or intermittent back pain.
NECK AND BACK FACT: Physiotherapy is simply a managed regimen of prescribed physical movement to increase range of motion and muscle strength. Physiotherapy also offers a combination of pinpointed exercises, hot and cold therapy and controlled movements, to get you on your way to recovery sooner!
If the pain in your back is more chronic, you may benefit massage therapy, as well. With massage therapy, the affected tissue is manipulated, allowing it to relax and heal itself. We may also recommend physiotherapy to many of our patients. Physiotherapy can help speed your body’s healing process and reduce the amount of pain you have.
Whether you are suffering from the results of a car accident injury, a slip-and-fall accident or another form of damage to your spine, The Neck and Back Clinics have a tailored chiropractic care plan to help with your chronic or intermittent back pain.
