The chiropractor will check your current range of motion capabilities, including bending and turning around. Just how flexible are you now? How much can you move without experiencing back pain? You’ll discuss your habits and lifestyle (such as if you are an active athlete or if you lead a sedentary lifestyle with little in the way of exercise and stretching).
Massage therapy is one tool your chiropractor offers for back pain treatment. You can think of us as your preferred pain management center. For some patients, the recommended course of action is spinal manipulation. You might be offered laser light treatment if the chiropractor determines that is a suitable approach to your painful back condition.
Untreated back pain can definitely have a major impact on your well being and keep you from doing the things you love most. Your chiropractor will help you understand the causes of discomfort in your back and how you can take steps to avoid back injuries in the future. He will also come up with a treatment plan to start alleviating pain and improve the condition of your back.
