Treating Back Pain
Back pain can strike at any movement, no matter how large or small. Chronic back pain can be debilitating and can impact every moment of your life. Back pain can be caused by several different sources, and it can be difficult to diagnose or treat. If you live near the foothills of Arizona, Dr. Goozdich may be able to help. Our team of professionals at Tukee Lifestyle Chiropractic in Ahwatukee is here to treat your back pain and answer some commonly asked questions regarding back pain.
What Causes Back Pain?
Back pain is typically caused by either an injury, disease or a medical condition. Common injuries that lead to back pain can include a soft tissue injury, such as a sprain or a strain, or an injury to the skeletal structure, such as a fracture. Many diseases lead to back pain as well. Common diseases include osteoarthritis, scoliosis, or spinal stenosis. Chronic conditions or degenerative conditions, such as disc disease, can also lead to chronic back pain. This can often be a herniated or ruptured disc located in the spine.
What Are the Symptoms of Back Pain?
Most commonly, a person may experience pain at any location in the back. This could be a dull ache or a sharp and stabbing pain. It is also typical to feel stiffness or a reduced range of motion in the back. Suddenly, simple movements, such as bending or twisting, may become painful. Back pain is also commonly accompanied by numbness or tingling felt in the extremities. This could radiate to the shoulders, arms, and hands, or the buttocks, legs, and feet.
How Can a Chiropractor Help?
Chiropractic care offers a safe and non-invasive treatment option for people suffering from back pain. Our chiropractor works to restore balance and harmony to the body by making sure that the skeletal and muscular systems are aligned properly with one another. This can be accomplished through several techniques including manual manipulation, stretching and strengthening exercises, medical massage, or electric stimulation.
In cases where a herniated disc is involved, spinal traction is often considered a great treatment plan with very successful results. Our chiropractor will first evaluate the patient to find the source of the pain. Our chiropractor will then work to create a customized treatment plan, which may include one, or several combined treatment techniques to fully cure the ongoing back pain.
