You know the situation all too well. You reach down to pick up something and feel a twinge in your back. Minutes later, you’re taking over-the-counter pain medications to help ease your sudden back pain. The medication may provide some relief, but for many people, this relief is only temporary.
Pain is the body’s natural response to tell you that something is wrong. As we age, some people assume that chronic back pain is just another fact of life. However, chronic back pain – and related conditions such as chronic neck pain and chronic headaches and migraines – can often be the sign of larger health issues.
As the first step in your chronic back pain management, we perform our unique wellness exam, using the most advanced diagnostic equipment to detect any potential hidden health issues. With these results, we can get a better sense of what may be causing your chronic back pain, and it helps us to develop your personalized chiropractic care plan – which is designed to help you reach your wellness goals as quickly as possible.
As part of your care, we typically will perform a chiropractic adjustment, manipulating the spine to correct a subluxation, or misalignment of your spine. Subluxations – and the underlying effects on soft tissue structures and your central nervous system – can cause many chronic pain conditions and symptoms, including chronic back pain. Correcting these types of misalignments is one of the many ways that we can help provide chronic back pain relief.
Starting with your first visits and throughout your chiropractic care at Swain Family Chiropractic, we will also suggest additional chronic back pain management and wellness techniques that you can incorporate outside of your primary treatment at our office. This may include:
Regardless of your condition and wellness goals, we will work with you to provide a customized wellness plan that addresses your chronic back pain and helps you to achieve good spinal alignment, follow a healthy diet, get enough exercise and maintain a positive mental state. During your treatment you will also have access to our extensive library of health and wellness content, including exercise videos, wellness newsletters and other helpful resources.
