When you have chronic or episodic back pain, you may have a few questions. At Back Talk Chiropractic in Lexington, Dr. Tolson and our team are here to provide answers and the relief you need when you’re experiencing back pain.
What are the Common Causes of Back Pain?
There are many potential causes of back pain. Some of the more common causes include herniated discs, muscle strain, arthritis, poor posture, and spinal stenosis. In addition, if you are injured or in an accident, that could be the cause of your back pain.
Is There Anything I Can Do to Help Back Pain?
You can take some steps at home to ease your pain. Try using hot and cold packs and over-the-counter medication like ibuprofen or acetaminophen. You can work on improving your posture and creating more ergonomic habits. Try strengthening and stretching exercises. Massage may also provide some pain relief.
What are the Next Steps if My Pain Does Not Get Better?
If you try home treatments for several days and you have no improvement, you should contact our chiropractor. Dr. Tolson will perform a comprehensive exam and create a customized treatment plan to provide pain relief while supporting the healing process.
How Will a Chiropractic Care Help My Back Pain?
Chiropractors are trained to diagnose musculoskeletal problems. This includes back pain. A chiropractor can provide adjustments and other techniques to relieve your pain. Spinal adjustments require the use of hands or small instruments. We apply force to specific areas of the spine to correct the alignment and get it back into the proper position. When your spine is in proper alignment, there is no longer a restriction of the joint. Proper alignment improves the way the joint functions while reducing pain.
