Quinn Chiropractic Center Offers Treatment For Back Pain

Most people will experience back pain at some time in their lives. Whether it is due to an accident or the normal process of aging, back pain can cause significant impairments in your everyday activities. Chiropractic care is a drug-free, non-invasive way of managing back pain, so you can get back to your normal life. At Quinn Chiropractic Center in Arroyo Grande, we use several modalities to relieve back pain.

The Causes of Back Pain

Often, back pain is the result of over-strain, due to lifting heavy objects or activities that cause repetitive twisting and turning of the spine. However, back pain can also be the result of an accident, with an injury to the muscles in the back or the structures in the spinal column. Aging can lead to back pain as well when arthritis or other degenerative conditions affect the spinal structures. Certain medical conditions can also lead to chronic back pain. A thorough examination and diagnosis are important to determining the appropriate treatment.

The Symptoms of Spinal Dysfunction

Spinal problems can lead to chronic or intermittent back pain. The pain may be sharp and acute or dull and aching. You may have a decreased ability to bend over, twist from the waist, or sit for long periods. The pain can become so severe that it prevents any movement of the trunk of the body. These problems can seriously impact your ability to function in everyday life.

Treatment for Back Pain

Our chiropractor in Arroyo Grande can use several different techniques, depending on the underlying problem. Manual adjustments help to re-align the spinal structures for better movement. Corrective exercises can help to strengthen the supporting muscles. Soft tissue treatments relieve discomfort. Spinal decompression may be needed to relieve the pressure on the discs that cushion the vertebrae. Acupuncture and massage therapy can also be used to relieve back pain. We will also help you develop proper posture to keep your spine in proper alignment. Often, a better ergonomic arrangement at work and home can help to reduce back strain and discomfort.
