Natural Solutions for Back Pain at East Lake Chiropractic and Medical Center
Back pain tops the list of debilitating conditions worldwide. It's also the third most common reason for doctor visits. If your own back pain has placed extreme limits on your quality of life, you're probably looking for effective treatment that doesn't call for surgery or drugs. You'll find those natural solutions at East Lake Chiropractic and Medical Center in Saint Cloud, FL.
An Agonizing Problem with Several Possible Causes
You might think of a backache as a condition in and of itself. In reality, it's merely a symptom of some more deep-rooted physical problem. Many diseases, disorders, and injuries can cause acute or chronic back pain. The most obvious causes stem from damaging falls, auto impacts, or other acute injuries that result in dislocated vertebrae, pinched nerves, strained muscles, and/or herniated discs. You may be more vulnerable to such acute injuries if you have a spinal misalignment that throws your weight off balance, or if your back muscles are lacking in strength and flexibility.
Changes in posture, weight, and spinal alignment can influence back pain. Backaches frequently suffered by pregnant women are a prime example. Repetitive strain over months or years of non-ergonomic work or sports activities can produce chronic back strain. Degenerative issues such as osteoarthritis and bulging discs can grow steadily worse over time, making your back painfully stiff and potentially causing neurological symptoms in your legs.
Non-Invasive Treatment Options from Our Chiropractor
Our chiropractors, Dr. McNichols, Dr. Schmidt, Dr. Massa, and Dr. Mitchell or our Nurse Practitioner Kerem Price, will perform a thorough musculoskeletal evaluation to pinpoint the underlying causes or causes of your back pain. You'll also be asked about your current symptoms and any recent incidents that may have triggered your pain. If X-rays reveal a spinal component that's out of alignment, a series of chiropractic adjustments can gently shift those components to bring your body back into balance. These adjustments can help arthritic spinal joints move more freely and with less inflammation. They can also relieve nerve pressure and muscular stresses that contribute to your discomfort.
Chiropractic adjustment isn't the only back pain solution we offer. Our chiropractor can devise a comprehensive plan that includes techniques such as massage therapy (to soothe back spasms and aid injury repair) and physical therapy (to rehabilitate an injured back and strengthen your muscles against future injuries), or visiting our Nurse practitioner for other alternatives. You may also benefit from recommendations to lose weight or improve your workplace ergonomics.
