Hands-on treatment is important when you are living with back pain. Manipulation of the back and upper cervical area can make all the difference when you are trying to eliminate back pain. Fortunately, there are many treatment options designed to treat back pain. Our NUCCA affiliated chiropractor, Dr. Fitzpatrick at Greenacres Chiropractic Clinic provides treatment for individuals with back pain in Spokane Valley, WA.
When to Come in For Back Pain Treatment
When should you see a chiropractor? You should see a professional if you are experiencing:
- Chronic Back Pain
- Flare-ups of Old Back Pain
- Neck Pain
- Upper Cervical Discomfort
- Acute Back Injury
Regardless of the symptoms that you are experiencing, it is important to speak with a professional about your pain. You do not have to live with these symptoms.
What to Expect During a Consultation
Your back pain consultation will likely begin with a discussion with our chiropractor. You will discuss your medical history and express any concerns you have about ongoing symptoms. At this time, the chiropractor may request an examination of your back. This may involve a visual inspection as well as using some internal imaging tools.
Next, we will make some recommendations based on those findings. For example, our chiropractor will create a treatment plan customized to meet your healthcare needs. These recommendations may involve chiropractic adjustments, lifestyle changes, nutritional counseling, and physical therapy.
Spinal Manipulations and Alignment
Chiropractors also use spinal adjustments and manipulations for back pain treatment. Back pain is often caused by misalignment that puts pressure on some of the musculoskeletal components. Getting your back into proper alignment is a great way to quickly adjust the way your body carries its weight.
Massage therapy is also a great treatment modality for back pain. Massage increases blood flow and lymph flow to the affected area, which speeds up the flow of nutrients to an injury or inflamed region. Furthermore, massage therapy can improve flexibility and restore your range of motion. This means you are less likely to experience an injury in the future.
