Chiropractic Care for Lower Back Pain Relief
Back pain limits you in practically all of your daily activities. Conversely, if your back feels well and your general health is good, you can not only function normally but optimally.
Historically, traditional medical treatment for back pain includes the use of medications, recommendations of rest, exercise programs, and ultimately, surgery. Evidence has shown that while there may be short-term symptomatic relief with these regimens, the underlying problem continues to exist. This type of care has also contributed to the opioid epidemic we are experiencing in the U.S.
Chiropractic care focuses on the evaluation and treatment of the cause of lower back pain. Misalignments and improper motion of the joints of the spine and pelvis create back pain. By restoring proper movement and alignment of the spine and pelvis, chiropractors are able to address the underlying cause of your back pain.
Without the use of drugs or surgery, chiropractic adjustments are used to address the problem. Chiropractic adjustments are a safe, gentle technique to physically create realignment and proper movement, specifically where it is needed in the spine and pelvis.
