Is Chiropractic Care the Right Option for Low Back Pain Treatment?

Written By Pro Care Health Center on January 4, 2019

Back pain often begins as twinge before turning into a nuisance and later chronic pain. 

The truth is, drugs do nothing to treat back pain at its source. Meanwhile, surgeries are costly, invasive, and can often leave you with pain even worse off than before.

For patients in Orlando, FL, chiropractic care offers a non-invasive and drug free low back pain treatment that identifies and treats your pain at its source.

How Can Chiropractic Help Treat Low Back Pain?

Several problems can lead to acute or chronic low back pain such as auto, sports, or work injuries as well as plain-old bad posture. Deep inside your musculoskeletal system, your back is dealing with one or several of the following conditions.

  • Herniated discs

  • Bulging discs

  • Spinal stenosis

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Subluxations (vertebrae that don’t function properly because they’ve fell out of their normal positions)

Chiropractic care takes a comprehensive approach to these conditions and others that trigger your back pain. Your Orlando chiropractor will take x-rays and evaluate your medical history. From there, he or she will develop a personalized low back pain treatment plan that solves your condition at its source.

This method focuses on long-term health instead of short-term solutions that mask symptoms.

In fact, the American College of Physicians now recommends doctors suggest chiropractic care first before turning to prescription drugs and surgeries.

It’s hard to say exactly what your treatment would look like because every chiropractic plan is entirely personalized to suit each patient’s needs. In general, your treatment plan may include:

Spinal manipulation:

Gentle adjustments to realign the spine’s delicate vertebrae and encourage healing.

Therapeutic exercises and stretches:

Rehabilitative and strengthening exercises aimed at restoring musculoskeletal tissue and supporting proper posture and motion.

Lifestyle modification:

Counseling to create an environment for long-term optimal wellness.

Soft tissue and massage therapy:

Various techniques to provide soft tissue pain relief and supplement other treatments.

Studies show that techniques like spinal manipulation are as effective as conventional treatments for low back pain. The difference is that spinal manipulation is safe, non-invasive, and natural.
