Chiropractic Relief From Back Pain

Back pain is a common issue, but there is nothing natural or normal about it. Pain is a sign that something is wrong, which is a prompt to correct it. Below, Dr. Dils at Dils Chiropractic in Carlisle, PA, shares how chiropractic care can provide back pain relief.

What’s Causing My Back Pain?

Back pain is a symptom of a lot of problems, so no two cases are exactly alike. However, there are some commonalities. In most cases, back pain comes from an issue such as:

  • Herniated discs
  • Nerve compression
  • Muscle tension and strains
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Misalignment

Generally, such issues are caused by one or more of the following:

  • Repetitive lifting
  • Poor posture
  • Auto, sports, or work accidents
  • Being overweight
  • Being very active or not active enough

Chiropractic Care for Back Pain

As back pain can be caused by so many different habits, accidents, and injuries, effective treatment plans have to be tailored to the individual. The following are some of the most commonly used and highly effective back pain techniques.

Adjustments and Manipulation

Pain in the back is often caused by a spinal misalignment, which causes undue stress and strain on the other spinal components. Manual as well as instrument-assisted adjustments help restore this alignment, which relieves that strain.

Electrical Stimulation Therapy

When muscle tension or injuries are present, electrical stimulation can be beneficial. It sends small electric currents into target areas, which break up tension, improve blood flow, release muscle spasms, and more.

Soft Tissue Therapy

Even when the source of pain lies in the hard tissues, the soft tissues are impacted. It can cause tension, strains, and other injuries. The soft tissues must be addressed alongside the hard tissues. While the techniques vary, some common ones include chiropractic massage, cold laser therapy, hot and cold therapy, and therapeutic exercises.

Lifestyle Adjustments

Lasting relief from back pain doesn’t just rely on addressing the underlying injury. It also requires addressing the factors that contributed to the injury, such as poor posture and repetitive lifting. Specific recommendations can be utilized to address such factors and prevent them from causing pain in the future.
