Back Pain

woman on fancy couch with back painPain of any kind is a signal that something’s wrong. Some people mask their back pain symptoms with a pain reliever and ignore the message. That approach is like removing the battery to quiet a smoke detector! Stiffness and soreness or “not feeling right” after a slip, fall or auto accident is a sign that something is injured.

These injuries should be addressed as soon as possible, so that the muscles in and around the injured areas can be prevented from creating new muscle memory and changing the way that area moves and operates.

Common Causes of Back Pain

Many things can cause back pain, including

  • Joint wear and tear, also known as arthritis or degeneration
  • Stenosis
  • Foraminal compression
  • Bulging or herniated discs
  • Hypertonic muscles
  • Sprain/strains
We diagnose and address all these effectively with a wide variety of both in-office treatments and at-home stretches and exercises, depending on what the best course of care is.

The Chiropractic Approach

At Mason Spine & Injury Center, we listen and identify the causes of problems like back pain, so something can be done to correct it, and avoid using a bandage approach.

Then we use specific chiropractic adjustments to help improve spinal function. By restoring the way your spine works, discs and soft tissues may heal, nerve involvement may be reduced, pain can ease, and better stability can return. Naturally, we think chiropractic is the best choice for your back pain!

Frequently Asked Questions

How soon can a person expect to feel better in your care?

The speed of improvement depends on many factors, including someone’s age, the time they’ve had the issue, and their willingness to make changes to their daily activities. We also recommend simple and effective stretches and at-home exercises, which quicken recovery and improvement.

What other treatments beside chiropractic can help?

Conservative treatment helps improve improper motion, stiff joints, sore muscles, headaches and weakness. It does so by opening compressed and “stuck” joints, and allows the nerves which operate other things to have the normal ability to signal them properly.

A Patient Success Story

We are currently treating someone whose primary complaint was low back pain. There were also other complaints, including being tired and lacking appetite. As we treated the low back, and the movement and tension in and around the low back returned to normal, her appetite was also restored, as was the normal function of her gastrointestinal tract.
