Given our complex spinal anatomy, we all suffer from back pain at some point in our lives. Lower back pain is the most common form of back pain suffered by our patients. Chiropractic care can help reduce or eliminate the pain, discomfort, and lack of mobility in your back. Here at PA Chiropractic and Rehab Center LLC in Waynesburg, our chiropractor can create a treatment plan to help alleviate your back pain and prevent it from reoccurring.
Common Causes of Back Pain
Our chiropractor treats patients for a variety of spinal conditions and injuries. Some common spinal issues we treat are herniated or bulging discs, degenerative disc disease, arthritis, scoliosis, spinal nerve irritation, and sciatica.
How Can a Chiropractor Help?
Most people who suffer from back pain want to be treated with active but conservative approaches. Medications are potentially addictive, and they only mask pain. Surgery carries its own risks. Chiropractic care for back conditions involves realigning a patient's vertebrae or discs to relieve pressure from spinal nerves and restore the blood flow to the affected area for faster healing.
Types of Chiropractic Treatment We Offer
Our chiropractor ordinarily treats patients who suffer from back pain by using soft spinal adjustments to vertebrae and discs with hands-on adjustments. These adjustments realign the patient's spine and relieve pressure on affected spinal nerves. In turn, that relieves pain and muscle spasms while also restoring mobility and range of motion.
You will likely benefit from spinal decompression therapy if you suffer from back pain caused by a disc condition or spinal injury. Spinal decompression therapy has been cleared by the FDA and has a high success rate. This treatment involves using a form of computer-controlled traction therapy. While the patient is in traction, a lumbar disc can be put under negative pressure. That negative pressure causes a vacuum-like effect, and any material that escaped from inside an injured spinal disc can return to where it belongs, allowing the disc to heal.
