Back Pain

Causes of Back Pain

There are many reasons that patients experience back pain in Sanford. Some of the most common causes of back pain include:

• Subluxations. A subluxation is a condition that occurs when misaligned vertebrae put pressure on the spinal cord, causing pain, tingling, and numbness.

• Herniated disc. This condition occurs when the disc between the vertebrae protrudes from the spine. A herniated disc can cause patients extreme pain while also limiting a patient's range of motion.

• Strains and sprains. Strains and sprains can cause a general achiness in the back, shoulders, and neck.

Many patients experience these type of injuries because of physical labor, repetitive motions, ergonomic problems, occupational injuries, personal injuries and car accidents.

Chiropractic Treatments for Back Pain

There are many ways that chiropractors treat back pain in their patients. These treatments include:

• Spinal adjustment. An adjustment is a treatment that helps realign the vertebrae and reduce pressure on the spinal cord. Spinal adjustments help patients by improving communication between the brain and the rest of the body. A spinal adjustment also helps patients by soothing aching muscles. This technique treats pain at its source, to help patients enjoy greater comfort from the first session.

• Stretches and exercises. Stretches and exercises can help strengthen the muscles of the back. We teach patients to do stretches and exercises that can improve their mobility and reduce muscle stiffness.

• Lifestyle advice. Often, patients exacerbate their own discomfort through their everyday activities. We teach patients how to make simple lifestyle adjustments to avoid this problem.

• Massage therapy. Massage therapy helps improve blood flow in injured areas. Massage therapy also reduces muscle tension in the back, which can lead to instant patient relief.

Benefits of Chiropractic Care

There are many reasons that patients seek chiropractic care for their back pain. Some of the greatest benefits of chiropractic care include:

• All natural. Chiropractic care is medication-free and non-invasive, so it's all natural.

• Safe for all ages. We treat patients from the youngest children to the oldest seniors. Because chiropractic care is adjusted for the patient, its' safe for everyone.

• Preventative. After your back pain is treated, we can help you avoid future back pain through preventative services.

Testimonial

Review From our Satisfied Patient

  • "I’ve been a client for more than five years; and the experience has been phenomenal! Not only did his protocols help relieve my back pain, I lost about 60lbs as a result of his introducing me to clean eating! And, he discerned through conversation that I was experiencing tremendous stress; and recommended ways to mitigate. Dr. Knecht has a great “bedside manner” and a friendly staff. I highly recommend the team at Knecht Chiropractic!"

I appreciate the fact that Dr. Knecht takes the time to listen to our concerns and thoroughly addresses them with a holistic approach. His extensive knowledge always continues to amaze us.
