Back Pain in Butler

young woman modern office back painIt’s no surprise that back pain is one of the most common reasons why people visit a chiropractor. This type of discomfort can range from mildly annoying to downright debilitating. Pain of any kind indicates that something’s wrong. Some people mask their symptoms with a pain reliever and ignore the message. That approach is like removing the battery to silence a smoke detector!

Common Causes of Back Discomfort

Non traumatic: There are many reasons patients experience back pain. Anything that involves bending over and lifting, turning wrong, or overreaching can cause such discomfort. This might include waking up in pain after a poor night’s sleep, hurting after performing housework, yardwork or shoveling snow, and discomfort after sitting for a prolonged trip.

Traumatic injuries: Motor vehicle collisions, work injuries, sports injuries, and falls are some of the most common scenarios that may result in injury and back pain.

Your Choices

We’ve helped many people with safe and natural chiropractic care. However, there are other choices you can make:

  • Ignore it (Spinal problems may worsen.)
  • Bed rest (May prolong the problem.)
  • Therapy
  • Medicine
  • Surgery (The irreversible last resort.)

The Chiropractic Approach

Specific chiropractic adjustments can help improve spinal function. By restoring the way your spine functions, discs and soft tissues may heal, nerve involvement may be reduced, discomfort can diminish, and improved stability can return. Naturally, we think chiropractic is the best choice!

Frequently Asked Questions

Isn’t some back discomfort normal?

Pain of any kind, regardless of age, is a sign that something is wrong. It’s the way your body lets you know that a limit has been reached or a problem has developed. While discomfort may abate in time, if the underlying problem isn’t addressed, it may gradually worsen until it becomes more difficult and expensive to resolve.

What about taking muscle relaxers?

Chiropractors don’t write prescriptions for drugs. Instead, we rely on natural methods. For example, when properly applied, ice can have an analgesic effect without the unwanted effects associated with some pain medications.

How does chiropractic work?

Chiropractic works because you are a self-healing, self-regulating organism controlled by your nervous system. When interference is removed from the nervous system, the body can function at its peak, and you can feel your best.

When should I start feeling better?

Some patients report relief after their first treatment, and most patients notice improvement within the first two weeks.
