Causes of Low Back Pain
If you are dealing with simple back pain, the culprit could be tight, overworked muscles. The muscles of the back work very hard all day and often get very little attention. Over time these muscles can become tight or can begin to spasm. This can cause chronic pain.
More serious types of back pain are often contributed to issues of the vertebra in the spinal column. Disorders of the vertebra can include bulging and herniated discs.
Visiting a chiropractor can be your first step in finding ongoing pain relief for your issues.
Can Chiropractic Care Help?
Our chiropractic office, serving Fountain Inn, Gray Court, Greenwood, Waterloo, Joanna, Clinton, Mountville, Newberry, Columbia, Greenville, and Laurens, offers back pain relief through several treatment options. The most common treatment used for back pain is spinal manipulation. Through spinal manipulation, the doctor will manipulate the spine and the surrounding tissues to bring better alignment and blood flow to the back.
Other effective treatments include massage therapy, hot and cold therapy, cold laser therapy, lifestyle adjustments, and exercises.
What Should I Expect at My First Visit?
During your first visit to Pro-Health Clinic, your overall health will be evaluated. You may undergo diagnostic testing to pinpoint the exact cause of your pain. Once this initial visit is over, the doctor will create a customized treatment plan for you.
Chiropractic care is beneficial in treating back pain, but for many patients, it takes several treatment sessions to achieve optimal results. The time you invest in chiropractic treatment, however, is well worth the benefits you will gain.
