Do you have ongoing back pain that is just beginning to bite into your daily routine?
Or, is your back pain ramping up, raising more serious questions about chronic pain?
Best advice: Pay attention to your back pain and see your chiropractor for assistance now.
As licensed chiropractors with a thorough knowledge of the structure and functioning of the human body, they will use spinal adjustments to help you approach the pain, and reclaim your normal routines as quickly as possible.
Spinal manipulation—the primary form of treatment performed by doctors of chiropractic—is now the conservative care first choice recommended by the medical community, according to the American Chiropractic Association.
ACA says research shows manipulative therapy and spinal manipulation are not only safe and effective, but can reduce costs and get workers back to work quicker than other treatments.
A recent medical study has also pointed out that manual manipulation offers better short-term relief of chronic back pain than medication.
How It Works
Your chiropractor will discuss your pain and help you shape solutions. Seeking a wellness approach that fits you, the chiropractor will ask about your schedule and ongoing symptoms.
Using a spinal adjustment to check for subluxations, which are misalignments of one or more vertebrae in the spine, may have far reaching effects on your back, neck and sciatica pain. Then the improved functionality may generate a new climate to help treat headaches, allergies and insomnia.
Now you may feel new energy. Mornings are simpler and days flow better.
You may want to build in wellness maintenance visits with your chiropractor as you upgrade your diet and your workouts. You might get up 15 minutes early to do yoga or tai chi, or head out for a walk around the neighborhood.
At work, you might break up long screen sessions with easy chair exercises or short morning and afternoon walks.
