Chiropractic is a great way to naturally improve your health, and is very safe! So if someone has chronic or acute back pain why should they try chiropractic as a first treatment method?
There are many treatments for back pain: massage, physical therapy, acupuncture, surgery, and chiropractic are a few. For most back pain conditions, surgery isn’t needed! You can start with a natural, non evasive therapy like chiropractic care to help reduce back pain and align the spine.
Chiropractic can be used as a first line of defense for chronic back pain, work compensation injuries, auto accidents, sports injuries, and more! It can help minimize your risk of needing surgery for your back pain.
A chiropractic adjustment is effective for all ages, young and old! Spinal manipulation helps older patients with back pain and can help manage other conditions such as spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, failed low back surgery, and osteoarthritis of the spine. It can also help younger patients and help prevent surgery for conditions like scoliosis, sports injuries, and posture related conditions.
Pain medications temporarily dull the pain, they do not treat the root of the cause. Chiropractic helps relieve symptoms while addressing the actual cause of the pain and restoring function to the body. It can also be used as a preventative care for those who experience occasional back pain.
