Back Pain Treatment at Life Chiropractic in Victorville
Back pain takes many forms, and the treatments that are used depend on the specifics of the problem. Here at Life Chiropractic in Victorville, we can treat your pain whether it is in your upper, mid, or lower back. We use a number of different treatments, so we can also provide relief regardless of the source of the pain.
Upper Back Pain
This is often caused by postural problems. Bending your neck downwards for hours, as when texting, is one example of a postural issue that leads to pain and stiffness. Work areas with bad ergonomics also result in pain in this area. Other causes include injuries from auto accidents, such as whiplash.
Pain in the Mid-Back
Muscle strains, improper twisting, and accidents can all lead to pain in the middle of your back. These issues often arise while playing sports, doing heavy labor such as construction help, and other demanding activities. Improper lifting sometimes causes pain in this area as well.
Lower Back Pain
Low back pain can be caused by the same things as pain in your middle back, but improper lifting and bad seating ergonomics play a larger role. Auto accidents, bulging or herniated discs, and other such things are more often involved, as well.
Chiropractic Treatment for Back Pain
The first step to effective treatment is to get an evaluation to determine the cause of the pain. If it turns out that your posture, sporting form, or lifting practices are at fault, you will be told how to correct the issue so you can stop inadvertently hurting yourself. Then, corrective exercise, massage, and spinal adjustments are used to help heal the existing damage.
If the evaluation finds that you have a problem such as misalignments, bulging discs, or other structural issues, treatment will focus on correcting these. Spinal adjustment, decompression, and other therapies may be used.
