Chiropractic Treatments for Back Pain
Back pain has a way of disrupting your entire life. Sometimes, it comes and goes with specific activities. Other times, it can be present even when you try to sleep – leaving you to toss and turn, desperate for relief so that you can close your eyes and rest.
Whether your back pain fits into one of these categories or somewhere in between, chiropractic care can help. Dr. Bretz and the team at Organic Approach Chiropractic & Wellness in Clinton Township, MI, share how along with some of the various types of back pain treatments.
Why Is Chiropractic Care Effective for Back Pain?
Back pain normally stems from an issue somewhere within the musculoskeletal system, such as:
- Herniated discs
- Sprains and strains
- Nerve compression
While these are just a few examples, they are some of the most common. Each of these issues can actually create numerous other issues. For example, a misalignment can cause herniated discs, muscle tension, nerve compression, and more.
When you experience pain, it might be stemming from an issue that isn’t so obvious. You might notice tension and work to treat that through stretching and massage. These techniques are helpful, of course, but they can only do so much if the tension is caused by a misalignment. By addressing only the tension, you are simply treating the symptom – not the root cause.
Chiropractic care goes beyond the symptoms. It seeks out what is causing those symptoms and correcting it. In this example, adjustments would be used to restore alignment. However, it wouldn’t stop there. The tension would also be treated to both provide relief and prevent the tension from causing another misalignment.
Types of Chiropractic Treatment for Back Pain
Adjustments are a critical component to addressing back pain, but there are many other techniques chiropractors combine with adjustments. These include but are not limited to:
- Therapeutic massage
- Electrical stimulation therapy
- Spinal decompression
- Therapeutic ultrasound
- Therapeutic exercise
Dr. Bretz will provide a personalized combination of techniques according to your symptoms and the underlying cause.
