Back Pain Remedies in West Bloomfield, MI
Back pain is not always a sign of a back injury. In fact, it can also be a sign of a more severe health issue. Severe back pain can signal cauda equina syndrome, which requires emergency surgery and can result in paralysis if left untreated. Back pain that is absent during the day but returns every night might be a sign of a tumor developing on the spine.
At Michigan Chiropractic Specialists, we try to diagnose the main cause of your backache rather than merely trying to address its symptoms. We use our chiropractic experience to uncover underlying issues that might have caused your back pain, such as diet or other lifestyle factors, to help keep your back pain away once it’s gone.
Chiropractic Back Pain Remedies
To help ease your back pain, our expert chiropractors may use one of several effective back pain remedies. These remedies include spinal realignment, spinal traction, or massage. We may also advise you to adopt certain lifestyle changes to speed up recovery and help prevent future pain flare-ups.
We use spinal realignment when we suspect that a misalignment in your skeletal structure might be causing your back pain. When your spine is not in correct alignment, other parts of your body need to compensate to keep yourself upright or to perform certain actions. The back pain occurs as other body parts strain to compensate for the lack of support.
Spinal traction can help relieve back pain when it occurs due to spinal compression issues. Spinal traction decompresses the spine, releasing pinched nerves and easing the pressure on herniated discs.
We may also use massage therapy both to diagnose and treat certain types of back pain. Using touch as a guide, our chiropractors can detect tense muscles. These tightened muscles may start to hurt if they do not release the tension they have built up. If we identify tension in your back, massage therapy can help relax and soothe your back muscles.
