Chiropractic and Therapy: 2 Options for Back Pain

By Genevieve Cunningham

Sometimes it feels as if suffering from back pain is a rite of passage. Most of us make it through childhood and even early adulthood without experiencing too much discomfort. But sometime as the years tick by, back pain seems to pop up and stick around for good. While it can be tempting to simply reach for a pain reliever, that may not be your best option for dealing with that stubborn pain in the back. In fact, the answer may be in something long-term such as chiropractic care or therapy. Take a look at these reasons why learning to manage back pain may keep you pain-free and feeling your best for a lifetime.

Why Back Pain Happens

There are so many reasons why we experience back pain, and it may be different for every person. Some common causes of back pain include age, excessive stress, injuries, being overworked, and exhaustion. Many of these actually boil down to improper alignments of the vertebrae of the spine, which make for pain and tension in the back and neck.

Why Long-Term Management is the Best Option

Most people experience pain and immediately reach for a pain reliever. Is this a terrible idea? In some instances, a simple pain pill can work wonders. It is especially beneficial for very mild or temporary pain. But it doesn’t go after the source of the pain, which means it can never eliminate the ultimate cause. Long-term management options are meant for this exact purpose … to correct the source of the problem, which ultimately leaves you pain-free.

Why Physical Therapy?

This is a great option for those who are injured or suffer from serious loss of mobility. Therapists can provide you with exercises and specific knowledge to help you regain some of that motion, which in turn may help eliminate discomfort. Is it for everyone? No. But if your doctor suggests this method, it might be worth giving it a try.

Why Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractors are great for treating back pain as well as multiple other ailments. When you visit a clinic, the chiropractor focuses on the spine. They look for misalignments of the vertebrae that may be causing problems, and then correct them using spinal manipulation. This can help diminish pain, improve mobility, and boost your overall health … all by attacking the actual source of the problem. And because they treat the source, you’re left feeling better than ever now and in the future.
