Back Pain Treatment FAQs
Back pain is often unforgiving and it interferes with effortless activities like walking and sleeping. Our priority at Maryland Farms Chiropractic is to provide natural pain relief for the residents of Brentwood, TN, and the surrounding communities. Dr. Liz has put together some common questions that she runs into regarding back pain treatment.
How Does a Chiropractor Diagnose Back Pain?
We encourage our patients with persistent back pain to visit us to reduce or eliminate their back pain through chiropractic care. Our chiropractor will record your medical history and perform a physical examination to diagnose your condition. We will perform various tests to help us understand your condition. Our chiropractor will then develop a treatment plan that may include spinal adjustments, nutritional changes, exercises, massage, and heat or cold therapy.
What are the Treatments for Back Pain?
Physical therapy and lifestyle changes can be used to address back pain. Surgical interventions are rare, but they can be used for chronic back pain caused by injured vertebrae. Most patients would prefer to avoid surgery when it is possible which is why chiropractic care is a great alternative.
Chiropractic care can reduce the need for anti-inflammatory medication and it can be explored before extreme interventions like surgery are considered. Our holistic approach to back pain not only relieves discomfort, but it also promotes your overall health and well-being.
How Can Chiropractic Care Alleviate Back Pain?
Chiropractic adjustments position the spine back to its natural state and reduce pressure on the nerves. Herniated discs are common culprits of back pain and inflammation because they press on the nerve root. Our chiropractor in Brentwood will use targeted manipulations to move the herniated disc from the nerves which will reduce your pain. Chiropractic care will encourage circulation to your soft tissues, expedite healing, and reduce inflammation. You can expect improved posture and a greater range of motion as well.
