Back pain is a common ailment that can be caused by many things, including injury, obesity, or even just poor posture. Our Chiropractors are experts in back pain management and treatment. Here is an overview of what you need to know about our chiropractic care for your back pain!
If you suffer from chronic back pain that is interfering with your everyday life (for example: preventing you from getting a good night's sleep or making it difficult for you to go about your daily activities), then chiropractic treatment might be something that would be beneficial to you.
What is back pain and what causes it?
The lower back is made up of bones (vertebrae), joints, discs, nerves, and soft tissues like muscles and ligaments. These can all be affected by injury or pressure over time causing chronic pain in the area. This type of pain may also be due to an accident, such as a fall. In this case, there is often more damage that needs repair - which can take time!
This type of pain may also be from being overweight or obese. Carrying around extra weight puts a lot of pressure on the lower back and spine, making it very difficult for them to heal properly.
There are also many other factors that can contribute to back pain, such as arthritis and osteoporosis; accidents; obesity; poor posture (which puts more pressure on your lower back); or even aging.
Back pain can be classified as acute (recent) or chronic (ongoing).
Acute back pain is usually the result of a specific event or incident, such as falling on your back. It can also develop after an injury to the lower extremities in which you are not able to move properly for extended periods of time. This puts stress and strain on your spine, resulting in pain.
Chronic back pain is usually the result of a more serious injury or event, such as being involved in an accident. It can also develop from long periods of time where you are not able to move properly and this puts stress and strain on your spine, resulting in pain. Chronic lower back pain tends to be persistent because there might have been some damage done to the spine that was not completely repaired.
Is it safe to get adjusted when pregnant or breastfeeding?
The alignment of the spine is important for growing babies as well as those who are breastfeeding. That being said, it's usually recommended that you avoid chiropractic care during the first trimester unless there is a serious issue going on with your pregnancy or birth.
During the second and third trimesters, your doctor will likely be able to help you manage pain through massage, yoga, and exercise. If these measures don't work for whatever reason, Chiropractors may be able to offer support in the form of adjustments- but check with us first!
It's usually recommended that pregnant women avoid chiropractic care during their first trimester unless there is a serious issue going on with their pregnancy.
Can I go to a chiropractor if I have a medical condition?

Is there a Chiropractic treatment option for back pain?
The good news is - chiropractic care offers a natural way to help manage and treat chronic back pain.
Healthsprout has Chiropractors that are trained to help you get back pain relief. We can maximize your body's chances of a full recovery and eliminate any discomfort if possible!
We know how to work with all parts of your spine - from the top down - in order to make sure that everything is functioning correctly and there are no issues in the surrounding areas.
We can also offer advice on what you can do at home to support your recovery, such as: getting more rest; staying active but within your limits (don't push yourself too hard); doing gentle stretches, and strengthening exercises that are appropriate for you depending on where your pain is located; eating a healthy diet, and even working on improving your posture.
Also, we can help you understand what might be causing the pain in the first place, such as poor ergonomics at home or work (which means how things are positioned for comfort); stress which may not always manifest itself physically but takes a toll on your body anyway; lack of exercise; or even an underlying medical condition which you may not have been aware of.
Our Chiropractors will work with your body to make sure that everything is working properly and there are no issues in surrounding areas, making it more comfortable for you - where the pain is located!
How long does the typical treatment take?
The length of treatment will depend on how severe your symptoms are and what is causing them. For example - if you were in a car accident, it may take longer than someone who has poor posture at work.
But most people only need about 12 sessions to help manage their pain without surgery or drugs! You can also attend follow-up appointments if needed to make sure you are recovering well.
It may take longer if you are a chronic back pain sufferer, as there might have been more injury or damage that needs time to heal completely. Chronic back pain sufferers will likely need more treatment because there is often damage that needs time to heal completely. It can also depend on how quickly your spine recovers and what the cause of the problem was in the first place (for example, if you are overweight or obese it may take longer than someone with an underlying medical condition).
The good news is, our chiropractor will be able to tell you exactly how long treatment should last and what results to expect. You can also attend follow-up appointments for support!
