At Lone Tree Wellness in Lone Tree, CO, a good back is a strong back, with strong bones and a healthy spine. Our chiropractor does not believe in a one-fits-all approach – we believe that everyone is just as unique as their bodies. We treat back pain due to various injuries, diseases, and ailments.
Any pain that disrupts your life and keeps you from enjoying things is a problem. We know how to handle these problems when they arise. Back pain creates stress in your life and body, and stress can affect the body in many ways, creating or mimicking illnesses or diseases.
What Causes Back Pain?
Back pain is one of the most common complaints among patients. The back is made up of the spine and spinal column. The spine consists of 24 small vertebrae arranged onto each other to create the spinal column. Between each vertebra sits a protective gel-like substance that prevents friction caused by pressure placed upon the spine. When the spine is affected by misalignment due to injuries or diseases, this amount of stress causes pain and discomfort.
A sudden jolt or blow from behind can cause spine pain and problems. The spine could become misaligned; in that case, a spinal adjustment is needed to align the back into its proper position in the body. This is not an easy technique, and some discomfort may be felt during the alignment treatment.
How Is Back Pain Treated?
Back pain is treated using one or more therapeutic techniques. Our chiropractor may use manual manipulation, a hands-on approach to massage the affected area or areas. Another approach is stretching and strengthening exercises. Exercises prescribed and performed by a chiropractor are designed to promote the body's healing process and healthy spine restoration through nutritional education, advice, and lifestyle changes.
Other forms of treatment are available. However, treatment is individualized, so no two people receive the exact treatment based on similarities. Treatments include table adjustments, spinal decompression, vibration therapy, myofascial release, percussion therapy, and trigger point therapy.
