Back Pain Treatment from Our Richardson Chiropractor
Before treating your back pain, our Richardson chiropractor will give you a thorough evaluation in order to determine the cause of your back pain. Our chiropractor will also go over any other symptoms you might be having. Along with pain in the back, some people with back or spine problems also experience tingling, numbness, decreased range of motion, and decreased mobility. For some, these symptoms are worse during certain times of the day or after doing certain activities.
Some of the most common causes of back pain include injuries that occur at work, while playing sports, or during a car accident. Muscle sprains and strains, poor ergonomics, and poor posture are all also common causes of back pain. Some spinal conditions cause back pain as well. These painful conditions include:
- Spinal stenosis
- Herniated disc
- Bulging disc
- Vertebral fractures
- Degenerative disc disease
Other health conditions that often contribute to back pain include obesity, pregnancy, scoliosis, osteoarthritis, sciatica, and tumors in the back.
Once our chiropractor has determined the cause of your back pain, he can begin a course of back pain treatment. When it comes to chiropractic care, we provide a variety of chiropractic techniques including chiropractic adjustments and spinal decompression. Other treatment options for back pain include corrective exercises, lifestyle counseling, nutritional counseling, and massage therapy.
