Chiropractic Care
for Back Pain

Experiencing bouts of intense pain could happen to any of us at any time. Whether we’ve suffered a sports injury or have been a little lax in our heavy-lifting techniques, we could find ourselves calling our doctor for solutions to our agony. Chiropractic care is an incredibly appealing option for many, as you don’t have to ask for your doctor’s permission and the treatment actively targets the source of the pain. If you have been enduring sharp, tingling or throbbing pains in any part of your body, here is what our chiropractic services at SnapCrack can offer you.

An estimated 85% of people experience back pain that they’ve felt is severe enough to require a doctor’s visit at some point. Although back pain is common, the precise cause of pain, and what to do for pain relief often remain a mystery for many. 

There is no single, best treatment for most low back pain. For this reason, many doctors’ recommendations and remedies will vary. However, standard care often includes a balance of rest, stretching and exercise, massage therapy, heat, pain relievers, and time. Many back pain doctors recommend chiropractic treatment. 

The good news is that most people with back pain feel better within a few days or weeks. However, physical therapy and chiropractic treatments administered by a back professional, like those at SnapCrack, can be very beneficial in stopping chronic pain. To speak with a trained back chiropractor, and get started on your treatment plan, contact SnapCrack right away.

Chiropractic Care

Some doctors refer those who’ve suffered from chronic low back pain, herniated or slipped disc, or a pinched nerve to chiropractic care.  Some pain sufferers have found relief by visiting a physical therapist. Many people with back pain elect to see acupuncturists, massage therapists, or a chiropractor on their own. 

Many question the role of chiropractic care in pain treatment. However, it’s important to consider that back pain costs up to $100 billion a year in the US (including costs of care and missed work), and is a leading cause of disability worldwide. Considering the harmful effects of the opioid crisis, chiropractic care offers an effective, and safe alternative to treating low back pain.

Chiropractic Treatment and Spinal Manipulation

The core treatment methods of chiropractic care and pain treatment involve manual therapy. Spinal manipulation, manual manipulation, and chiropractic adjustment refer to a high-velocity, short lever arm thrust that is applied to abnormal vertebra with the goal of improving functionality, reducing nerve irritability, and restoring range of motion.

Many of the published guidelines recommend chiropractic manipulation and other treatment methods be included in the treatment plan early in the care of lower back pain.
Chiropractic mobilization is one of the other treatments recommended. This refers to low-velocity manipulation, movement, and stretching of the muscles and joints.

Back Chiropractor FAQs

Nearly everyone suffers from back pain at some point. Research shows that seeking relief via heat therapy, alternative treatments, and chiropractic treatment can help relieve pain and improve function in people with acute low-back pain.

If you’re unsure what to do about your back problems, read on for the most frequently asked questions asked of our chiropractors or contact a patient specialist at SnapCrack who understands the risks of lower back pain and injury:

Are Chiropractic Adjustments Good for Your Back?

Chiropractic adjustment can be effective in treating low back pain. Something as simple as moving furniture can cause damage to joints, nerves, and cause other conditions. This might even cause some patients to lose significant time from their jobs. Many studies suggest that spinal manipulation can help patients with headaches and other spine-related conditions like neck pain.

How Do You Know If You Need a Chiropractor for Your Back?

If you are experiencing chronic back pain, you may benefit from the helpful assistance of a back professional. Your posture, how long you’re on your feet, and the type of work you do can also increase the need for therapeutic treatments. Patients can refer to the following signs that they may need manual therapies: 

  • Chronic pain
  • Frequent headaches
  • Herniated disc
  • Muscle spasms and joint pain
  • The need to sit instead of stand
  • Limited range of motion
  • Sharp, shooting, and acute pains

Any medical treatment has inherent risks, however, chiropractors strive to diagnose and correct biomechanical disturbances and nervous system blockages. Many patients experiencing pain caused by injury to soft tissue can be treated effectively via massage therapy. Those who are generally healthy, besides their back issues, can be candidates for chiropractic care.

Can Chiropractors Help With Back Pain?

Chiropractors focus on musculoskeletal and nervous disorders, which helps them target the source of your pain and improve your range of motion. Many patients seek chiropractic adjustments to treat a sports injury, car accident, or other instances of strain.

Can Chiropractic Worsen Back Pain?

Any patient treatment involving manual manipulation and body movement can sometimes result in additional soreness. Over time, your muscles, joints, and nerves will acclimate to these adjustments, meaning you’ll feel less soreness.

Lower back pain that’s worse after a chiropractic adjustment is nothing to worry about. unless it becomes severe. A proper alignment will jumpstart your immune system. Your back also impacts your digestive system, and other parts of your body. If you’re experiencing severe pain, soreness, or other issues following your chiropractic adjustment, then you should consult with your chiropractor, physician, and physical therapist.

How Long Does It Take for a Chiropractor To Fix Back Pain?

Patients typically feel a reduction in pain of 40%-80% following their first visit. General improvement occurs within 1 to 4 weeks from the start of chiropractic therapy. The average person requires anywhere between 18-24 adjustments over approximately 9-14 weeks to treat all three phases of chiropractic care (pain relief, stabilization, rehabilitation).

Are Neck Pain and Back Pain linked?

The neck (cervical spine) encloses and protects the cervical spinal cord. Neck pain, therefore, is often a response to similar conditions that cause other back pain. Also, like back pain, neck pain may radiate along your arm into your hand.

Is it better to see a doctor or chiropractor for back pain?

Many back and spine conditions can be identified with a thorough physical examination, x-rays, and a history of the patient’s medical records. If you have back pain that includes tingling in either your arms or legs, it’s a good idea to visit a doctor. 

If your symptoms are so severe that they interfere with your ability to sleep or participate in daily activities, it’s in your best interest to consult with a medical professional.

Sometimes starting with a visit to your doctor to find a conservative solution that can resolve your numbness or pain can be helpful. However, many initially visit a chiropractor because they want treatment solutions that don’t involve excessive medication or surgery. 

Choosing chiropractic care and spinal manipulation has been proven to be a viable and highly effective treatment for different types of back issues. When a chiropractor treats your back issues using spinal manipulation, they can address problems related to the many different areas of the spine, such as the thoracic spine, the cervical spine, and the lumbar spine. 

Many people will eventually have pain in their lower back, but they can all benefit from a chiropractic adjustment. If you have pain that’s chronic, it makes sense to visit a doctor for a diagnosis. However, a chiropractor also has the capability to pinpoint the problem and establish an appropriate plan of care. 

In fact, chiropractors know to work on adjacent areas of the body, such as the shoulders and knees. Speak with a professional chiropractor in your South Florida community at SnapCrack and get started on treating your back injuries.
