Back Pain

June 8, 2020

If your back or neck is stiff and aching, a visit to the office of Springfield Chiropractic Clinic can relieve your discomfort as well as other symptoms associated with these conditions. As skilled and experienced providers of care, we can adjust the spine to improve vertebral alignment and provide care to take pressure off of the affected nerves thereby eliminating pain and restoring optimal function.

The causes of back pain are usually related to musculoskeletal injuries rather than underlying diseases. Overuse, heavy lifting, poor body mechanics, prolonged sitting or lying down, and sleeping in an awkward position are common causes of back pain. These causes often result in limited range of motion, stiffness, and muscle and/or joint pain. To locate the origin of the pain, a chiropractor employs Applied Kinesiology, or muscle testing. This non-invasive test confirms the cause of the weakness. Once the location(s) of the injury is isolated, a chiropractor uses many tools and modalities to coax the body back into homeostasis and proper alignment. This eases the irritation and pain that you have experienced.

Many conditions can be treated using a variety of chiropractic techniques. By using the latest advances in care, we can precisely diagnose and treat trouble spots for maximum relief and restoration of function. By providing gentle and precise spinal manipulation, we can realign the vertebrae and take pressure off the spinal nerves. Moreover, with decompression therapy, we can relieve pressure on the intervertebral discs, spinal nerves, and stretch tight lumbar muscles. Other treatment modalities such as electrotherapy, hot/cold therapy, and cold laser treatments may be used as well to reduce inflammation and control pain. We may also perform instrument-assisted connective tissue procedures, which can alleviate conditions such as tennis elbow, shoulder tendinopathy, sprain/strain injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis, and post surgical scarring. With such a wide variety of modalities at their disposal, you can rest assured that your care is in the best of hands. Our skilled chiropractors provide effective treatments for a broad spectrum of physical conditions, particularly lower back pain. In addition, preventative support to help avoid injury during physical activity is also discussed.

At the office of Springfield Chiropractic Clinic, we’re dedicated to providing the highest quality of skilled and compassionate care. For more information on our practice and the many services we provide, give our office a call today.
