ProActive Chiropractic provides expert adjustments & spinal manipulation to treat back pain.
Even though the symptom is very common, there are a wide number of causes of low back pain. Low back pain can be due to:
- Sprains & Strains
- Joint fixations
- Herniated discs
- Degenerative disc disease
- Spinal stenosis (narrowing of the spinal canal)
- Spondylolisthesis (bone displacement)
Low back pain is one of the most common reasons that people seek health care. Medical statistics show that over 80% of adults have some form of low back pain at some time in their lives. This means millions of people suffer from low back pain, many unnecessarily. In fact, it’s the leading cause of disability in people under 45 years old.
The causes of low back pain are numerous. For this reason, experience counts in making the right diagnosis. For instance, you wouldn’t want a bulging disc to be confused with a kidney stone as the treatments for each are dramatically different.
Another important factor in evaluation is considering the entire body in the process. Low back pain might be related to a problem in another part of the body, such as the neck, hip, or legs. Poor lower limb function can put stress on the spine, so this type of holistic evaluation is a key part of optimal care.
The diagnostic process is primarily based on evaluating your symptoms and by examining your body. If necessary, x-rays or other imaging tests may be required. Making the right diagnosis is essential to picking the correct treatment.
Since all back pain is not created equal, it’s not all treated equally either. At ProActive Chiropractic our exam process allows us to do a thorough evaluation of your complaint so we can identify the root of the problem. We then deliver treatment that will help get you better as quickly as possible.
Your treatment may include chiropractic adjustments, exercises to perform at home, or supplements to speed up the healing time. Each treatment plan considers the diagnosis and your overall health profile.
Most low back pain cases respond very well to conservative care, but we are happy to partner with other providers when necessary to co-manage your problem. In every case, we take into account your entire health status in deciding upon the best care for you.
Our overall goal is to get you pain free as soon as possible. We don’t plan or schedule any visits to our office unless absolutely necessary.
