Dealing with back pain?
You aren’t alone! Millions of Americans are dealing with chronic back pain that impacts their everyday activities. We know that an increasingly sedentary lifestyle can contribute to back problems, but there are many reasons you may be dealing with a stiff, achy, or throbbing back. While pain meds may temporarily alleviate your discomfort, they won’t fix the problem. However, your chiropractor Dr. Andrew Winger and the team at Redondo Family Chiropractic, have made it their mission to help patients conquer their back pain through safe, therapeutic, and drug-free treatment.
Causes of Back Pain
Minor causes of back pain include a sedentary lifestyle, poor posture, and sprains or strains related to physical activities, and improper lifting. Some causes of back pain may be more serious and require more than what at-home care and rest can provide. Other causes of back pain that our chiropractic team can diagnose and treat include:
- Accidents or falls
- A herniated disc
- Vertebral fractures
- Bulging or ruptured discs
- Torn ligaments
- Spinal stenosis
How Our Chiropractic Team Can Help
If you’re dealing with back pain after a fall or accident it’s particularly important that you seek immediate medical attention. The good news is that our chiropractic team can help treat your back pain through safe, effective solutions that facilitate natural healing. When you come into our practice for the first time, we will go through your medical history and then perform a comprehensive evaluation. Imaging tests may also provide us additional insight into what’s going on, particularly if we suspect arthritis or a fracture.
Once we have the imaging tests back we can determine the cause of your back pain and begin crafting a treatment plan. Most causes of back pain can be treated through regular spinal adjustment sessions, in which Dr. Winger will apply pressure to certain areas of the body to realign the spine. Through massage therapy, physical rehabilitation, and other spinal adjustment techniques we can:
- Reduce your reliance on pain medications
- Ease tension and stress
- Reduce pain, swelling, inflammation, and muscle spasms
- Increase circulation and blood flow
- Speed up the body’s natural healing processes
- Improve nerve function
- Improve mobility and range of motion
- Prevent the need for surgery
