An aching back can make you miserable and interfere with your ability to walk, run, sit and bend easily. Dr. Andrew Winger and Dr. Frank Rossi, your Federal Way, WA chiropractors, explain how chiropractic treatment can help relieve your painful back pain symptoms.
Back pain doesn't have to disrupt your life
Back pain can occur as a result of an accident or fall, or it can be a result of simply living your life. If you spend hours hunched over a computer every day, sooner or later, your back will be affected by your poor posture. Back pain can also be a problem if you develop degenerative disc disease as you age. Luckily, no matter what the cause of your problem, chiropractic treatment can reduce your pain and improve your mobility.
Finding the source of your problem
It's difficult to treat a problem effectively if you don't know the source. Your visit will start with a comprehensive examination and X-rays, in many cases. Your Federal Way chiropractor will ask you questions about your symptoms and want to know about issues that could cause or aggravate your back pain, such as your occupation and hobbies and sports you enjoy.
Chiropractic treatment offers many benefits
When your spine is out of alignment, your entire body suffers. A misalignment can cause muscle stiffness and imbalances that increase pain and make it harder to move your joints. Realigning your joints with spinal manipulation not only reduces your pain, but also improves range of motion and promotes healing. Manipulations may be performed manually or with a handheld device.
Although spinal manipulation is an important part of chiropractic care, it's not the only treatment your chiropractor offers. Depending on the source of your back pain, we may also offer:
- Extremity Manipulation
- Massage Therapy
- Applications of Ice or Heat
- Exercise and Dietary Recommendations
We may offer suggestions that can decrease your pain, such as switching to an ergonomic office chair or using proper lifting techniques.
There's no reason to live with back pain when chiropractic treatment offers a natural, non-invasive way to relieve your symptoms. Call Dr. Winger and Dr. Rossi, your Federal Way, WA chiropractors, at (253) 941-6977 to schedule an appointment.
