If you are experiencing back pain, you’ll have questions about how to find relief. At The Spine Institute of New Jersey, we have been treating the back pain of residents of Lyndhurst and Paterson, NJ, for many years. Read on to learn more about what causes back pain and how our chiropractor treats it.
How Common is Back Pain?
Back pain will affect 8 out of 10 people at some point in their lives. Some people experience occasional acute back pain, while some have chronic back pain.
What Conditions Does a Chiropractor Treat?
Chiropractors can treat a wide range of conditions. Most people seek chiropractic care for back pain. However, they can also treat other issues, including headaches and neck pain. Chiropractors are also skilled at treating joint, muscle, and ligament injuries.
What Can I Expect at my First Appointment?
At your first appointment, you can expect our chiropractor to spend time speaking to you. They will discuss your symptoms, past or present injuries, and your lifestyle. Next, our chiropractor will assess your musculoskeletal system to determine the root cause of your back pain. An x-ray or MRI may be necessary to clarify the diagnosis. After the source of your pain has been determined, we will create a chiropractic care plan tailored to your needs.
What Treatments are Provided for Low Back Pain?
Low back pain is the most common type of back pain. Treatment will depend on the cause of the pain, which the chiropractor will determine before making a treatment plan. Spinal adjustments will restore your body’s natural alignment, reducing pain and inflammation throughout your body while also improving your mobility. If your back pain is due to herniated or bulging discs, you will benefit from spinal decompression therapy. Therapeutic massage and acupuncture may also be recommended to further reduce tension and improve circulation throughout your body.
