Back pain is something almost everyone experiences at some point in their life. If you play sports or work in construction, you run the risk of acute back pain due to accidental injuries. If you work in an office all day, poor posture or bad ergonomics can lead to chronic back pain. At Lakewood Ranch Chiropractic in Bradenton, we specialize in musculoskeletal back pain treatment. Here’s how our Bradenton chiropractor can help you find back pain relief.
Chiropractic Care for Back Pain
Chiropractic care offers an alternative to surgery and drugs to treat painful muscles, joints, ligaments, cartilage, and tendons caused by musculoskeletal problems and chronic conditions. Our treatments are safe, natural, non-invasive, and drug free.
Your Bradenton chiropractor will first review your medical history to get an idea of past injuries, conditions, and treatments. We’ll then perform a physical exam to determine the cause of your pain and severity of symptoms. We’ll conduct lab tests, if necessary, and take x-rays or an MRI to evaluate your condition and determine if you’re a good candidate for chiropractic treatment. Once your Bradenton chiropractor has decided you would benefit from chiropractic care, we’ll develop a plan for back pain treatment.
Chiropractic Techniques and Therapies
Spinal manipulation is one of the most common techniques used in back pain treatments. Your chiropractor will apply manual pressure to your spine to “adjust” bones and joints that are out of alignment and causing pain. Spinal manipulation helps balance your system so you can heal.
We may combine manipulation with other natural therapies such as massage or rehab exercises to expedite your healing. Massage therapy circulates blood to injured areas for smoother healing. It also strengthens your muscles to help avert future injuries. Rehab exercises help alleviate pain and stiffness to improve range of motion and mobility.
Through chiropractic treatments, we strive to alleviate painful symptoms and correct the source of your pain so you can fully recover from your injury.
