Back Pain

Chiropractors at WestSide Comprehensive Chiropractic are healthcare professionals who specialize in diagnosing and treating musculoskeletal disorders, particularly those related to the spine. They primarily use manual manipulation and other non-invasive techniques to address back pain and related issues.

Here's an overview of how our chiropractors typically treat back pain:

  • Patient Assessment: 
    Our chiropractors begin by conducting a thorough assessment of the patient's medical history, lifestyle, and the specific nature of their back pain. They may also use diagnostic imaging like X-rays or MRI scans to better understand the spine's condition. Our goal is to pinpoint the start of the pain and then alleviate symptoms.
  • Chiropractic Adjustment (Spinal Manipulation):
    • The hallmark of chiropractic care is spinal manipulation, also known as a chiropractic adjustment. Our chiropractors use their hands or specialized instruments to apply controlled, sudden force to specific joints in the spine or other parts of the body.
    • The goal is to improve spinal function, reduce pain, and enhance the body's natural ability to heal itself. Adjustments are aimed at restoring proper alignment and mobility of the vertebrae
  • Mobilization:
    Our chiropractors may use mobilization techniques, which involve slower and more gentle movements of the spine and joints to improve mobility and reduce pain.
  • Exercise and Rehabilitation:
    They may prescribe specific exercises and stretches to help patients strengthen their core muscles and improve posture. These exercises can be performed at home or under supervision in the chiropractor's office. Regular light exercise and core strengthening can assist overall.
  • Lifestyle and Ergonomic Advice:
    They often provide guidance on lifestyle modifications, including proper posture, ergonomics, and strategies for preventing future back pain.
  • Nutrition and Dietary Advice:
    Our chiropractors may offer advice on nutrition and dietary changes that can support musculoskeletal health and improve immune systems.
  • Electrical Modalities and Therapeutic Tools:
    They may use electrical stimulation, ultrasound, laser, heat, or cold therapy as complementary treatments to reduce inflammation and muscle spasms.
  • Maintenance Care: 
    After the initial treatment, some patients may opt for periodic chiropractic visits to maintain spinal health and prevent the recurrence of back pain. This is often referred to as maintenance or wellness care.

If you are suffering from back pain, it's advisable to consult with our licensed chiropractors to discuss your symptoms and develop a personalized treatment plan.
