Do not delay in scheduling a back pain treatment if your back is causing even slight discomfort. It is best to treat back pain immediately because if you do not, it is likely to get significantly worse. Calling our office and scheduling an appointment is an excellent way to experience both short and long-term relief.

Back pain treatment at home

Seeking medical care is important but there are a few things that can be done at home immediately to help reduce back pain. These include:

  • Stretching. Do not stretch to the point that it hurts.
  • Taking ibuprofen. Use in moderation.
  • Using a combination of heat and ice. IcyHot has a new product that is easy to use and applies both heat and cool.
  • Taking a warm bath with Epsom salts. This is relaxing and good for pain relief.

Doing the above can help to reduce discomfort temporarily but it will not solve the root cause of what is leading to back pain in the first place. For this, it is important to visit a medical professional.

Professional back pain treatment

In our office, we provide comprehensive care that helps to resolve what causes our patients' back pain so that they can regain their mobility and quality-of-life, without being distracted by unnecessary discomfort.

Our back pain treatment may include:

1. Chiropractic adjustments

Also known as spinal manipulation, this is touch therapy where we identify which vertebrae are out of alignment and push them back into position. This is done using a series of precise and quick motions so that the actual adjustment is over within a matter of seconds. Bringing the spine into alignment is important because the spine is the body's superhighway with nerves flowing through it. One vertebra out of the correct position can lead to discomfort and also cause health problems in other areas of the body

2. Massage

A professional massage can be incredibly beneficial for reducing back pain. Patients have visited us in incredible amounts of pain, barely able to move and found that after a massage, they begin to feel looser, have less pain and their sense of well-being is increased. After an accident, for example, some accident victims find that they need to schedule a massage twice a week. This can be one of the only ways to experience a level of pain relief after suffering an injury like whiplash. Although chiropractic adjustments help in the long-term, massage may be necessary for treating the immediate muscle tension and pain.

3. Therapy

An important part of any back pain treatment should be physical therapy. This is because of the necessity to learn proper stretching techniques and to learn how to strengthen muscles to prevent a re-injury. Physical therapy generally does not start immediately, but once the patient has begun the chiropractic treatments.

Experience long-term relief

Ultimately, our goal is to help our patients experience long-term relief from back pain. We want to help our patients live their best quality life and our treatment helps to make that possible. To begin your treatment, call our office today.
