What are the conditions
related to back pain?

Back Injuries

Back pain can occur due to sports injuries, car accidents, falls, and other factors that affect your spine and muscles. You may also sustain back injuries due to sudden movements or repeated heavy lifting, which can sprain or strain your muscles. Chiropractic treatments readjust your body and spine to reduce discomfort and help your muscles relax. We also recommend physical therapy exercises to restore muscular strength.

Alignment Problems

Back pain also occurs due to years of poor posture while sleeping, sitting, and standing. Improper posture can affect your spinal alignment, making the intervertebral discs or other spinal components fall out of alignment. Chiropractic treatment focuses on restoring alignment to your spinal column to alleviate back pain. We also provide lifestyle recommendations to help you sleep, sit, and stand in an optimal position to prevent alignment problems.

Disc Dislocation

Intervertebral discs are the soft and cushion-like components between the vertebrae, responsible for ensuring optimal spinal movements. They absorb the shock of movements, preventing the vertebrae from grinding against each other. However, age-related wear-and-tear, injuries, accidents, and improper posture can make them protrude outwards, placing pressure on the surrounding nerve roots. Compressed nerves send pain signals into the brain. Chiropractic treatments restore alignment to alleviate discomfort.

Sciatica Nerve Pain

Sciatica nerve pain often manifests in the form of lower back pain extending down the hips and legs. This happens when your sciatic nerve is compressed or pinched due to misalignment, protruding discs, herniation, or other factors. Chiropractic treatments identify the root cause of the pinched sciatic nerve and then use manual manipulation to eliminate the compression. This restores optimal alignment and alleviates the sciatica nerve pain.

How does chiropractic care treat back pain?

Our chiropractic treatment to address back pain in Glen Rock focuses on spinal manipulation to activate your body’s natural healing processes and restore optimal alignment. Realigning the spine reduces pressure on the central nervous system and nerve roots, i.e., the components that carry sensations to your brain. When your spine isn’t aligned, the nervous system carries pain signals into the brain. Furthermore, a misaligned spine also places more burden on the surrounding muscles, leading to muscle pains. Chiropractic care treats the root cause of back pain by restoring spinal alignment, which, in turn, takes the pressure off the nerves and muscles.

What can I expect from my chiropractic treatment for back pain?

Your chiropractic treatment will be preceded by a detailed examination. We review your health history, discuss your symptoms, run physical examinations, and perform diagnostic tests to trace the root cause of your back pain. Based on the root cause of back pain, we curate a comprehensive chiropractic care plan to restore alignment to your musculoskeletal structures. The chiropractor may use various manual techniques and controlled force to restore alignment. Your chiropractic treatment may also include nutrition education, physical therapy, and other therapies.

Chronic Conditions

Back pain can also occur due to chronic underlying conditions, such as fibromyalgia, a condition that leads to widespread muscle pain on the upper, middle, or lower back. Chiropractic treatment is necessary to reduce the factors leading to nerve compressions, thereby alleviating the source of back pain. Improper alignment also places the burden of postural support on the muscles, leading to constant muscle pains. As such, restoring alignment allows the muscles to stop contracting, thereby alleviating muscle pains.
