Wouldn't it be fantastic if you could get rid of your back pain without having to rely on addictive drugs or painkillers that don't work? Well, at Sauk Prairie Chiropractic in Prairie Du Sac, WI, our goal is to help you naturally recover from the pain. We achieve this through the use of safe, non-invasive methods such as spinal adjustments and rehabilitative therapies. Our chiropractor, Dr. Tom Terbilcox, can provide back pain relief so that you're able to enjoy everyday activities again.
Common Causes of Back Pain
The pain is usually mechanical and may arise due to an injury or degenerative condition. For example, muscle strains or sprains from heavy lifting, poor posture, or obesity. Other mechanical causes are lumbar spinal stenosis, facet joint syndrome, disc herniation, vertebral fractures, and spondylolisthesis. Chronic pain also develops from inflammatory arthritis, compressed nerves, and sciatica.
Pain may range in severity from a dull ache to a sharp or burning pain that persists or comes and goes. The lower back is most often affected since it supports upper body weight and is more flexible compared to the mid or upper back. While some patients still manage to carry out daily activities, the pain can be debilitating for others. Additional symptoms include:
- Trouble bending or twisting
- Pain during prolonged sitting or standing
- Muscle spasms, tightness, or stiffness
- Pain that radiates to the arm, hand, or lower extremities
- Numbness, tingling, or weakness in the low back, buttock, thigh, or leg (sciatica symptoms)
How Our Chiropractor Treats Back Pain
Dr. Tom Terbilcox has over 30 years of experience in chiropractic care. He is versed in different adjustment techniques to help you manage acute and chronic pain associated with underlying injuries or degenerative conditions. Spinal adjustment is performed manually (by hand) or using a handheld instrument. It involves manipulating and mobilizing the spinal structures back into alignment and away from the nerve. The chiropractic adjustment for upper or lower back pain provides long-lasting pain relief as well as:
- Reduces inflammation
- Releases the pressure on the herniated disc and pinched nerve
- Stimulates the flow of healing nutrients to the spine
- Improves posture and spine health
- Reduces the risk of back surgery
Our chiropractor may include corrective or strengthening exercises in your personalized treatment plan. We may also advise you to eat balanced meals and practice better posture during activities and sleep.
