back pain can impact day to day life. Back pain can range from
a simple nuisance to a debilitating pain that can prevent you from
doing the things you love. Understanding what is causing the
back pain is the first step in being able to successfully treat the
pain. At Elan Wellness Center, we have experience with several
back injuries and diseases and offer a range of services to get you
back to the things you love.
Sometimes, back pain is caused by a direct injury to the bones or soft tissues in and around the spine. Injury can be a result of a sport accident, automobile accident, or simply a trip or a fall. Many common injuries include a fracture, sprain or strain, or a tear in the ligaments, tendons, or muscles. Whiplash and impacts to the neck and back, are all common injuries from an automobile accident. Further, injuries can be a result of degeneration from aging. Herniated and bulging discs, typically occur as the bones and discs start to break down. This is a common back injury that can be successfully treated with chiropractic care.
Chronic Back Pain
Back pain can also be the result of a chronic condition that cannot be pinpointed to one direct injury. Types of chronic back pain can include sciatica or arthritis. More serious conditions, such as spinal stenosis, or the narrowing of the spinal cord, can cause a great deal of back pain and can ultimately lead to paralysis or even death. Understanding the source of your chronic back pain is key to finding the right treatment.
How a Chiropractor Can Help
At your initial appointment, your chiropractor will do a full examination to understand the cause of your back pain and determine the best way to help alleviate the pain. There are several techniques a chiropractor can use to restore balance and reduce pain. A chiropractor may use manual manipulation, stretching, and strengthening techniques, massage, or even physical therapy to help cure the problem. Sometimes, a combination of several methods can be employed.
