Is chiropractic care the relief you need for your chronic or persistent back pain?
Trying to tackle back pain isn’t that easy for everyone. If you are taking pain medication regularly but noticing no changes or if at-home care isn’t doing enough to handle your symptoms then you may be feeling pretty frustrated. Before you start to consider getting surgery to treat your back problems this is the perfect time to turn to our Potomac, MD, chiropractors for a more effective treatment plan that may prevent the need for surgery altogether.
No matter whether you want to avoid surgery or you would prefer not to be taking pain medication regularly, there are many people who benefit physically, mentally and even emotionally from chiropractic care. Our Potomac, MD, chiropractic specialists focus on all facets of the musculoskeletal system. This includes everything from the nerves and ligaments to muscles and tendons. Everything must work together to function properly and comfortably. When something is off in the musculoskeletal system this can lead to common problems such as back or neck pain.
Luckily, chiropractic care has been known to provide benefits to those dealing with back pain. No matter whether you are dealing with a sports-related back injury or back pain caused by poor posture, chiropractic care can handle your symptoms. Spinal manipulation is one of the most common chiropractic treatments we offer. This technique requires us to manually apply pressure to certain areas of the body to realign parts of the spine that may be out of alignment.
A spine that isn’t properly aligned can lead to chronic back pain (pain lasting more than six weeks). Through regular spinal manipulation sessions we can:
- Boost blood flow, which facilitates faster healing
- Take pressure off nerves and release trapped nerves
- Reduce pain and inflammation
- Improve mobility, functionality and range of motion
Along with spinal manipulation, you may also receive chiropractic mobilization, which helps to stretch the muscles and the joints to reduce pain with movement. If you are someone who works at a desk each and everyday we will also talk to you about ergonomic strategies to improve your posture while sitting at your desk. Remember, we provide treatment for your back pain but we can also provide helpful advice for things you can do to reduce your back pain such as maintaining a healthy weight or improving your posture.
