Back Pain

Almost everyone experiences back pain at some point. While an estimated 27 million Americans are evaluated and treated by a chiropractor each year, many have turned to complex surgical procedures to alleviate the pain, and others receive regular injections of medication. The sad truth is that even after trying both of these solutions, many of these people have experienced the pain returning, at times, worse than before. Instead of making your body go through so much trauma, we ask our patients to consider natural treatments through chiropractic care.

Chiropractic care not only addresses pain in the lower back (lumbar spine) and upper back (thoracic spine), but the end result helps with a number of issues throughout the body including sciatica which is commonly attributed to low back dysfunction. More often than not, chiropractic care helps alleviate acute and chronic back pain. Before beginning chiropractic care, every patient will receive an evaluation by Dr. Travis Ring. During the evaluation portion of the appointment, you may be asked questions such as:

 

 

  • Where is most of your back pain located?

  • Do you remember when your back pain started?

  • Does your back hurt when you are at work?

  • Are you able to bend down, turn or lift heavy items?

  • Are you able to exercise?

  • Does anything help lessen or worsen the pain?

Once the evaluations is completed, Dr. Ring will recommend a plan of care customized to your specific needs. Your plan of care will include regular adjustments which is a process of applying manual manipulation to the spine in order to improve mobility. Your plan may also include recommendations for massage therapy and rehabilitative exercises.
