What Are the Causes of Your Lingering Back Pain?
Back pain can be a difficult condition to treat, and that's because it can be symptomatic of various health issues. Before your chiropractor can begin treatment, they must first identify the underlying cause of your back pain.
One potential cause of back discomfort is damage to the tissues surrounding your spine. You may pull something in your back while doing heavy lifting. That pulling sensation may be symptomatic of a ligament sprain. Until that ligament sprain is treated, its tightness or inability to provide proper support may contribute to the misalignment of the vertebrae and its painful symptoms will persist.
Your back pain may also be the result of arthritis. Arthritis is a degenerative condition born from continuous damage to your joints. Expect to experience back pain if the joints affected by arthritis are located along your spine. Similar to ligament sprains, you’ll have to treat your case of arthritis first if you want freedom from back pain.
Accident victims may also experience chronic back discomfort. Trauma that directly affects the back can lead to misalignments and herniated discs. You may experience that kind of trauma during a car accident. Even a seemingly minor accident like a fall on a wet floor can leave you saddled with intense back pain.
For these and other causes of discomfort, you can partner with Dr. Yoo of Back to Health Chiropractic of Stratford to receive effective back pain treatment in Stratford, CT.
How Will an Expert Chiropractor Alleviate Your Back Pain?
The fact that back pain is symptomatic of various health problems does make treating it more challenging. Thankfully, your chiropractor can usually diagnose the specific cause of your back discomfort and address it using the appropriate treatment method.
For instance, your chiropractor can use chiropractic adjustments to correct misalignments along your spine. They can apply targeted force to change the positioning of your misalignment and ease your symptoms. The targeted nature of chiropractic adjustments allows the chiropractor to provide treatment without causing any adverse issues. Chiropractic adjustments also help by restoring the range of motion you lost due to your injury.
Acupuncture, massage therapy, and physiotherapy are additional treatment methods a chiropractor can use to treat back pain. These treatment methods are especially effective against back pain related to ligament sprains, herniated discs, or arthritis. The aforementioned treatments work well on those issues because they facilitate faster recovery. Once your underlying injury recovers, the symptoms associated with it should dissipate.
