Back Pain Chiropractors in Waterford, MI
Your back is a complex mechanism made up of bones, muscles, nerves, tendons, and discs. These work together to provide support and structure for the rest of your body. When these pieces no longer line up and work together, it can cause pain as well as tingling, numbness, and reduced functionality of muscles and organs below the problem area.
Back pain can have many causes. It can come on gradually, caused by things like bad posture, repeated movements such as bending and lifting, or not exercising. Back pain can also be sudden, usually caused by a single incident such as lifting something heavy or a strong impact.
Fractures or inflammation can also cause back pain in your vertebra. Other causes include degenerative diseases and mood disorders.
Most back pain is acute, meaning that it is short-term, lasting no more than three weeks. Chronic back pain lasts for at least a few months without improvement. Either way, it’s something you don’t want to live with if you don’t have to.
Treatment for Back Pain
For most people, back pain is solved by resting and addressing the causes of their pain. Improving posture and doing core exercises to strengthen the muscles that hold the spine in place can help. Another option is chiropractic treatment.
What is Chiropractic Treatment?
Chiropractic Treatment is a form of alternative medicine that manipulates the bones of a patient to bring them back into alignment. Manipulation can be done with just the hands and body weight, or with a variety of tools.
Your back pain chiropractors will manually adjust your spine so that it aligns properly again. Treatment can be done in one or multiple sessions depending on the severity and cause of the back pain.
