Back pain is something that many people suffer from in their life. It can stem from a vigorous workout, lifting something heavy, or as a result of sleeping in a wrong position. When the pain in your back is due to a strained muscle, it will usually heal on its own in a couple of days with rest. However, if your pain lingers or if it is a result of a spinal disc injury, the condition may be more troublesome. Spinal disc injuries are quite common and can be really painful. They can become thin or herniated due to things, like arthritis and other degenerative diseases and affect your overall spinal health. If this is the case, it means that it’s time to visit Locke Chiropractic Clinic.
Finding the exact source of your back pain can be difficult and symptoms include:
· Muscle spasm
· Buttock pain
· Back pain
· Spine sensitivity to pressure and touch
· Prolonged inactivity causes pain
· Pain lasts longer and gets worse
Depending on the cause and severity of your back pain, Dr. Nicholas Locke at Locke Chiropractic Clinic may recommend a spinal adjustment and spinal manipulation of your vertebrae to alleviate your symptoms. An adjustment refers to Dr. Nicholas Locke applying manipulation with their hands to vertebrae that have abnormal movement patterns or fail to function normally. The objective of this treatment is to reduce the subluxation with the goals of increasing range of motion, reducing nerve irritability and improving overall function. As a result, this enables you to get back to living your life without having to rely on painkillers.
