The most important part to comprehending your back pain is to understand that something is causing your pain. You can try and treat back pain with pain killers, but because pain is a symptom the cause will still be there.
With extensive training and knowledge we at Redmond Chiropractic Center are able to evaluate signs and indicators that show us possible sources of your back pain. We use multiple forms of examination to determine the proper course of care for every patient and their back pain. Some of the tools we use are computer instrumentation to show which muscles are fatigued and over-exerting. We use x-rays to show bone misalignment and rule out pathology. Orthopedic and neurological tests are used to help determine areas of concern.
Some of the common causes of back pain are:
When people overexert themselves during physical activity this can lead to sprains and strains. Our instrumentation shows where muscles are being over-exerted and fatigued. This helps us focus on where to treat.
When the body develops a problem, different areas compensate to help stabilize. This leads to degeneration and overuse of joints (arthritis). With chiropractic we focus on improving problem areas by getting the body to work together as a whole and take the stress off of particular joints. Nutrition is also used in conjunction with spinal care.
Bulging Ruptured Disk
Disc problems usually occur with an act you have done a thousand times but in one instance it gives out. An example is bending over to pick something up and experiencing severe pain where you cannot get back up. In our office we have had success with different disc situations using segmental distraction and decompression.
Sciatica is caused when the disc causes pressure on the main nerve that travels down your leg. This can lead to pain traveling down your leg, and numbness in the toes. We have treated many patients by relieving the pressure on this nerve.
The main procedures we use to treat patients are low force and always within the patients comfort tolerance. We pride ourselves with the philosophy and belief that our job is to find the treatment that matches the patient and not make the patient match us.
