Understanding Back Pain

Pain is your body’s way of signaling that something is wrong. While some may opt to mask the symptoms with pain relievers, it’s akin to silencing a smoke detector without extinguishing the fire. At Advantage Chiropractic Centers, we believe in addressing the root cause of back pain for lasting relief.


Identifying Common Causes

1. Facet Joint Dysfunction

The facet joints, located on the back side of each spinal bone, are rich in nerves and can be a common source of back pain. Dysfunction in these joints can lead to restricted movement and discomfort.

2. Disc Issues

The discs between spinal bones can also contribute to back pain. Trauma or injury may cause these discs to bulge, exerting pressure on nearby nerves and causing pain.

Your Treatment Options

At Advantage Chiropractic Centers, we offer safe and natural chiropractic care to alleviate back pain. However, we understand that you have choices when it comes to managing your pain:

  • Ignore it: Ignoring spinal problems may exacerbate the issue over time.
  • Bed rest: While rest may provide temporary relief, it can prolong the problem.
  • Therapy/Exercise: This approach may stress malfunctioning joints.
  • Medication: Pain medication may provide temporary relief but only masks the symptoms.
  • Surgery: Considered the last resort, surgery is irreversible and comes with risks.

The Chiropractic Advantage

How Chiropractic Care Helps

Specific chiropractic adjustments can improve spinal function, allowing discs and soft tissues to heal, reducing nerve involvement, easing pain, and restoring stability. We believe that chiropractic care offers the best solution for addressing back pain effectively and naturally.

Frequently Asked Questions

Isn’t back pain normal?

No, pain of any kind at any age is a sign that something is amiss. While pain may subside, ignoring the underlying problem can lead to worsening conditions over time.

What about muscle relaxers?

At Advantage Chiropractic Centers, we prioritize natural methods over drugs. Ice therapy, when applied properly, can provide analgesic effects without the unwanted side effects associated with some pain medications.

How does chiropractic work?

Chiropractic works by removing interference from the nervous system, allowing your body to function optimally as a self-healing, self-regulating organism. By restoring proper nervous system function, chiropractic care helps you achieve optimal health and well-being.
