The spine consists of 24 unique bones that helps support your body’s form, ability to function, and protects the spinal cord. When the spine is damaged in an accident or loses its integrity with age, chronic back pain is often the result. Depending on the extent of your pain, you may not understand whether seeking chiropractic treatment is necessary.

Normal vs. Abnormal Pain
It’s important to understand whether the pain you are experiencing is natural or caused by unusual circumstances. Many people manage common aches and pains depending on their environment, occupation, age, and history. Although chiropractic care can help treat pain that derives from everyday sources, it’s especially useful for relieving stress or pressure that prevent you from following through with your daily routine.
Back pain should not encroach on your ability to meet your personal and professional commitments. Detecting particular warning signs as soon as possible and following through with chiropractic treatment puts you in a proactive position that helps provide immediate relief, while also preventing other potential conditions from developing.
Chiropractic Treatment for Back Pain
A Chiropractor can perform a complete examination to understand where the source of your back pain derives, as well as the extent of the condition. Once they are able to provide a diagnosis, they can then develop a treatment plan that is customized to align with the unique aspects of your specific condition. A few solutions that are often used to treat chronic back pain include:
- Chiropractic adjustments
- Physical therapy
- Controlled exercises
- Heat therapy
- Cold laser therapy
- Stabilization techniques
Such techniques are useful for reducing inflammation, correcting misalignments that prevent your body from functioning correctly, restoring mobility to your joints, and relieving pain.
