Diagnosing Back Pain
Identifying the root cause of back pain can be challenging since the discomfort can occur from a variety of sources. At our practice, we use a comprehensive approach to determine the cause of your symptoms. After discussing your medical history with you and conducting physical exams, our chiropractor will determine if x-rays or other imaging scans are necessary. We also provide medical massage therapy and nutritional counseling to help you manage your pain.
Causes of Back Pain
Back pain can be caused by a variety of factors, including poor posture, stress, sports injuries, car accidents, and even slips and falls. When you visit us, we will determine the cause of your pain and develop an effective treatment plan that is tailored to your individual needs. Some common conditions we can help treat include:
- Sciatica: Sciatica is a painful condition that can affect the lower back, hips, and legs. At Harbor Chiropractic Group, we help treat this condition with chiropractic care, massage therapy, and physical rehabilitation
- Herniated Disc: A herniated disc in the spine can cause severe pain and discomfort. We use spinal adjustments to provide relief and help you heal
- Spinal Stenosis: Spinal stenosis is a condition that causes the spinal canal to become narrow, which puts pressure on the nerves and causes pain. Our team provides gentle chiropractic adjustments to help open up the spine and reduce nerve compression.
Treatment for Back Pain
Once the root cause of your back pain has been identified, our chiropractor will create a treatment plan to help relieve your discomfort. Depending on your specific condition, we may recommend gentle chiropractic adjustments and manipulations to improve spinal alignment. Along with that, we may suggest physical therapy exercise to strengthen weakened muscles. Our chiropractor also uses electrical stimulation for pain management and massage therapy for deep tissue manipulation. We understand that each patient has different needs, so we tailor our treatments to fit your individual health requirements.
