Back and Neck Pain Are Common Problems That Impact Everyday Life
If you are one of the millions of people who suffer from back or neck pain, you know how it can impact your everyday activities. Work tasks can become more difficult to accomplish. You may give up some of your favorite recreational activities because of the pain or fear of doing more damage. You may have tried conventional medicine for your back or neck problem but have concerns about relying on pharmaceutical management or would prefer to avoid surgery. These same issues have caused many individuals to look to chiropractic techniques to improve their back and neck pain.
Causes of Back and Neck Pain
Back or neck pain can be a result of a sudden impact such as in an automobile accident or sports injury. Some individuals develop back or neck problems due to their work, which may require heavy lifting, repetitive movements or holding their bodies in one position for long periods of time. These injuries many involve the muscles and ligaments surrounding the vertebrae of the spinal column, or they may result in injury to the vertebrae themselves. The initial injury can cause a condition of chronic inflammation that can produce chronic or intermittent pain. The chiropractor can provide a proper diagnosis of the problem, along with an individualized care plan to improve the problem.
Chiropractic Treatment of Back and Neck Pain
Studies provide clear evidence that chiropractic treatment can help to relieve back and neck pain. In general, manipulation of the vertebrae of the spine is used to relieve pressure on discs and the nerves that radiate from the spine to improve comfort and function. However, a variety of other treatments can be used, such as heat or ice, laser therapy, ultrasound, exercise therapy, as well as advice on posture, lifestyle, and nutrition. Combined, these treatments can help to relieve discomfort and restore full range of movement.
