How a Chiropractor Can Help Back Pain
Back pain is one of the most common disabling conditions, and can have many different causes. In fact, it can be difficult to narrow down specific causes of back pain without careful examination. If the back pain is caused by joint restrictions or similar issues, chiropractic care is the most effective method of treatment and pain reduction – an alternative that is gaining increased popularity as doctors look for options that avoid prescribing opioids.
Chiropractors treating back problems often bring up images of the chiropractor contorting the patient in all kinds of ways to pop and snap bones into place. In reality, this type of manipulation can be very gentle, and can even use tools like activators and tables to help properly adjust joints without risking further damage.
Of course, our chiropractor may also recommend other types of treatment to deal with specific back issues, including deep tissue massage, stretches you can do at home, and changes to your diet, sleeping habits, and more.
