When should I consult a chiropractor?

If you’ve developed a problem with your back or spine, then you may want or need to consult with a chiropractor. A back or spinal problem can compress nerves and blood vessels in the area, causing pain and even issues in other areas of the body, or the problem can cause spinal misalignment or issues like mobility difficulties. In some cases, a chiropractor may be able to relieve the issue, while in others, the chiropractor will be able to help the patient manage symptoms.

There are some signs you should visit a chiropractor. Issues like back pain, poor ergonomic habits, or chronic pain in muscles could easily be considered signs of when to see a chiropractor.

Who can benefit from chiropractic treatments?

If you have lower back pain, you may benefit from chiropractic treatment, but while back pain is one of the more common reasons to see a chiropractor, there are many others. Patients with other kinds of pain can benefit from treatment, as can patients with frequent headaches or certain chronic conditions. More specifically, a patient may benefit from chiropractic treatment if they have an issue like:

  • A sports injury, like one from running, mountain biking, skiing, hockey, etc.
  • Lower back pain, persistent neck pain, and/or shoulder pain
  • Chronic pain in muscles, joints, or limbs
  • Pain caused by an auto accident injury, work-related injury, or repetitive-use injury
  • Pain caused by a degenerative disease like arthritis or degenerative disc disease
  • A herniated disc
  • A compression fracture
  • A soft tissue injury
  • Sciatica
  • Whiplash
  • Headaches or even jaw pain

If you have any of those issues listed above, there’s a good chance chiropractic treatment will provide pain relief or help you in your recovery. Here at Back to Life Integrated Medicine, we can put together a comprehensive treatment plan should you need multiple services.

What types of chiropractic treatments do you offer?

When you come see us, the first thing we’ll do is provide you with a thorough physical exam and, if required, order diagnostic imaging. This will help us determine what is causing your pain. Once we understand the cause, we will provide the right chiropractic technique for you and your needs. Our techniques range from therapies that are gentle enough for children, pregnant women, and seniors, to high-intensity maneuvers. Some examples of the techniques we provide are:

  • Gentle spinal mobilization and manipulation
  • Gentle neck manipulation
  • Spinal decompression
  • The Graston technique
  • Therapeutic massage
  • Extremity adjustment

Our clinic has a multi-therapeutic and comprehensive approach to treatment, so you can receive any of the treatments we mentioned as well as physical therapy, regenerative medicine injections, and functional rehabilitation as parts of your treatment plan.
