At Maday Chiropractic in Rochester, MN, we can help relieve your back pain with a variety of techniques so that you can get back to the activities you enjoy.
Back Pain Symptoms
Individuals may experience pain that can be sharp during certain movements, or it can be a chronic, dull ache. You may have difficulty doing actions that require you to bend or twist. Even walking can be painful. You may experience numbness, tingling, or weakness in the legs. Pain may be relieved by reclining, however, it limits your ability to work or play.
Causes of Back Pain
Muscle strains from poor lifting techniques are a common cause of back pain. Injuries to the spine can lead to ongoing pain during movements. You may sustain a herniated disc from straining or from a blow to the back. Even simple aging can degenerate the structures in the spine. Scoliosis, which is a curvature of the spine, or other structural disorders can cause back pain as well. These problems can be treated with chiropractic care. Older individuals are more at risk for back problems as are those who are obese, those who smoke, and individuals who do not exercise on a regular basis.
Chiropractic Techniques for Back Pain Treatment
Spinal adjustments are the cores of chiropractic care because they serve to re-align the structures of the spine. This allows the disks to return to their normal position and relieve pressure on the muscles and nerves. Manipulation and stretching of the muscles and joints can also ease back pain. Corrective exercises are used to strengthen muscles that support the spine. Cold laser therapy speeds the healing of muscle tissue. Our chiropractor in Rochester can also advise you on ergonomic improvements in your work and home environments in order to reduce strain and prevent further injury.
