Alleviating Back Pain Through Chiropractic Care
Living with back pain can make basic everyday tasks far more difficult. People often think the solution to this is surgery, medication, or just ignoring it. However, chiropractic care is a non-invasive treatment option to relieve back pain and help people live without discomfort. Here at InSight Health & Wellness in Philadelphia, our team is committed to helping you eliminate your back pain so that you can live comfortably. Here are some common causes of back pain and how we can help.
Car accidents can severely injure your spine, including herniated and bulging discs. A sudden impact can push the discs out of alignment and cause a disc's rupture. This leads to the gel inside the disc to leak out and cause nerve pain. Your back is the center where nerves, muscles, and ligaments come together and can easily be injured in a car accident leading to severe pain and limited motion. Sudden jerking movements and impact can cause fractures in the spine and the facet joints. Our team can help you find relief from whatever pain you may be experiencing due to an accident.
Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve is pinched or irritated. This causes shooting pains from the buttocks down the leg. A spinal misalignment can lead to sciatica. This happens when the structures in the hip and lower back compress the sciatic nerve leading to irritation and inflammation. Our chiropractic adjustments work to properly realign the spine, removing pressure from the sciatic nerve. In some cases, sciatica is caused by a herniated or slipped disk or narrowing of the spinal canal. Typically, sciatica symptoms will only impact one side of the body.
With more people working from home, neck and back pain cases are quickly rising. Most people ignore their posture in the comfort of their own space. The act of looking down at a smartphone also puts pressure on the neck vertebra and surrounding soft tissues. Our team will work with you to correct your posture and alleviate whatever back pain you are experiencing from a personal injury.
Lower Back Pain
Chiropractic care is highly beneficial for patients dealing with lower back pain. We usually use spinal manipulation and manual manipulation to improve the lower back's function and range of motion. Myofascial release uses pressure on trigger points to help knotted muscles relax and return to their natural state. Chiropractic mobilization treatment promotes the use of lower-velocity manipulation. This treatment works to stretch the muscles and joints in the lower back. The main goal of chiropractic mobilization is to increase the range of motion within these areas.
