Back Pain Treatment
If you suffer from back pain, you know that it can be debilitating. Back pain can come from a variety of sources, including overuse of your back muscles, fatigue, chronic back conditions, and injuries. However, chiropractic care can help. At Dr. David R. Gorrie, D.C. CCSP in Palm Desert, CA, we offer a variety of treatment methods for back pain. Our chiropractor provides personalized treatment to meet the needs of each patient. Our goal is to help you live a healthy, pain-free life.
Causes of Back Pain
Back pain can be due to a pulled muscle, misaligned vertebrae, or other problems related to the spine. This can happen simply from poor posture or from sitting too long in one position. Back pain can happen while working out or lifting something improperly. Since there are so many causes of back pain, our chiropractor will work to determine what is causing your pain so we can provide the proper treatment.
Symptoms of Back Pain
Symptoms vary based on the type of back injury. Chronic back pain due to overuse or poor posture is often dull and achy, and your muscles might feel sore. An acute back pain injury, like a sports injury or lifting injury, will cause sharp, shooting pain that may travel throughout the body. Back pain makes it difficult to twist the body, and it may hurt to stand up or walk.
Chiropractic Care for Back Pain
When you visit us for back pain, our chiropractor will perform a physical exam and might take X-rays to diagnose you. We will then create a personalized treatment plan unique to your condition. Our wide variety of services allow us to meet the needs of each patient. Back pain treatment may consist of a number of different types of therapy, including chiropractic manipulations. This involves manually realigning the spine to alleviate tension and pressure in the back. A properly aligned spine is vital for rehabilitation. You may need several adjustments for your back to fully heal.
Dr. Gorrie might also suggest corrective exercises to strengthen your body and avoid recurring pain. We provide lifestyle advice so you can change habits that contribute to your pain.
