Back pain can be debilitating, even if it’s just mild discomfort in your lower back or neck. If you’re in pain and you don’t know how to manage it, it can severely impact your quality of life and ability to function day-to-day. Thankfully, many people have found relief through chiropractic care, which uses adjustments and other treatments to help relieve back pain symptoms without the use of drugs or surgery.
What are the most common back conditions?
Some of the most common back conditions are caused by chronic pain, pinched nerves, and muscle spasms. Neuropathy and pain in your arms or legs are also not uncommon. Headaches, migraines, and even fibromyalgia can all be attributed to back problems. However, when you experience these symptoms in addition to persistent back pain, it may indicate a more serious condition like sciatica. Carpal tunnel syndrome also requires professional attention and treatment as it can lead to permanent nerve damage. Dr. Velkovich has extensive training and expertise in diagnosing back pain from its source—and treating it effectively so that you can begin feeling better sooner rather than later. Whether you’re experiencing acute back pain or looking for long-term relief from a recurring issue, Dr. Velkovich will help determine what’s causing your back issues and how best to treat them so that you can get on with living life without back pain holding you back!
Are there any ways to prevent back problems?
Prevention is key when it comes to preventing back pain. One of the easiest ways to prevent back problems is through daily exercise. A wide variety of exercises can help strengthen your back, improve your posture, or just make you stronger all around. Dr. Velkovich can provide a customized exercise routine to help prevent back problems.
What does a regular chiropractic visit entail?
Dr. Velkovich’s examination focuses on finding and correcting vertebral subluxations, which are misalignments in your spine that can cause pain in other parts of your body. In most cases, Dr. Velkovich can correct subluxations with gentle, precise adjustments without any thrusting or cracking sounds. Many people report immediate relief after seeing Dr. Velkovich.
What should I do if I'm experiencing back pain?
If you’re experiencing back pain, it’s important to seek chiropractic care right away. Left untreated, back problems can result in long-term disability or even paralysis, so time is of the essence.
