Colorado Springs preferred choice for Chiropractic Care! Always Accepting New Patients.
Back Pain is one of the most common reasons people seek out a chiropractor in Colorado Springs. According to the Mayo Clinic, each year in the United States, 1 in 4 adults experiences low back pain. Low back pain is the main reason why people seek chiropractic care.
Pain of any kind, at any age, is a sign that there is something wrong. One myth about back pain is that some kind of pain is always normal. People become accustomed to expect a certain amount of aches and pains as part of life.
Some common types of back include muscle aches, a shooting or stabbing pain, pain that radiates down your leg, limited flexibility or range of motion of the back, and the inability to stand up straight.
“Back pain” is a very general term. There can be many causes for back pain, including the obvious like car accidents, but one of the most common are a muscle or ligament strain. This could be caused by heavy lifting or repetitive movements. Another common cause is a trauma between the spinal bones. This can cause inflammation, which puts pressure on the nerves in the spine.
Our doctors at Carefree Chiropractic will give you a complete examination to determine the source of your back pain. This includes x-rays, and a physical examination of your spine and posture and walking. Our office is committed to caring for you as an individual, and we’ll create a treatment program unique to your needs.
Gentle spinal adjustments help improve the function of your spine. By restoring your spine to a healthy state, the discs and soft tissues can heal, pressure on the nerves is relieved, and your pain is reduced. Better stability and range of motion can return, and you’ll be able to live a fuller and pain-free life.
In addition to your adjustments, the experienced doctors at Carefree Chiropractic will also recommend therapies that can be done at home in between your office visits. Specific stretching exercises and the application of ice can help relieve pain as well.
In general, you have several choices when it comes to dealing with back pain. Ignore it and your problems may get worse. The same is true of best rest, which only prolongs the problem. Physical therapy can stress malfunctioning joints. Drugs simply numb the body and never begin to cure the true cause of your pain. Surgery is the most serious choice, and is used as a last resort. Yet many Americans end up having back surgery.
The choice to receive chiropractic care is an all-natural approach to healing your body and relieving your pain. If you are suffering from back pain, we’d love to help you. Please give our office a call today for a consultation.
