Our Chiropractor Can Help You Get Back Pain Relief
If back pain drives you to distraction, you are not alone—it is one of the top reasons people report for visiting their doctors worldwide. At Camelback Medical Centers in Phoenix and Scottsdale, we provide a unique, multifaceted approach to back pain treatment that provides lasting relief by treating the causes behind the symptoms. It all starts with visiting our highly-skilled chiropractor.
Chiropractic Care for Relief of Upper and Lower Back Pain
Our Camelback Medical Centers team finds that back pain responds best to a combination of treatment options; because backs are complicated and may be hurting for more than one reason:
- A traumatic injury—A car accident injury, sports injury, personal injury or work injury may have caused both spinal misalignments (subluxations) and strain in the muscles, tendons and ligaments supporting the spine.
- Poor posture and ergonomics—Slouching at work, lifting things the wrong way, or working out with poor form and posture can all cause subluxations and soft tissue strain and imbalance.
- Bulging or herniated discs—Injuries and poor posture place excess pressure on the discs that provide shock absorption for your vertebrae and the nerves traveling out to the body from the spinal cord. Disc injury can manifest with radiating pain from the lower back down into the legs (sciatica) or the arms if the injured disc is in the upper back or neck.
- Poor physical conditioning—Being overweight or in poor physical condition, particularly if the core muscles are not strong and balanced, can also cause backaches.
Each individual patient’s care needs vary depending on the causes of their upper and/or lower back pain. So our chiropractor works closely with you to design a treatment plan that may include just one or a combination of a few complementary care modalities. For example a car accident injury patient will benefit from adjustments from our chiropractor to correct subluxations, while also needing help to recondition, lower inflammation in, and accelerate healing of muscles, ligaments and tendons. In this case, physiotherapy and massage therapy may be very beneficial. For those with bulging or herniated discs, spinal decompression is enormously helpful. Our chiropractor can also work with our medical doctors to help design weight loss and exercise plans for those who need weight loss coaching for pain relief.
