Back pain has been effectively addressed for decades with chiropractic care. U.S. News & World Report states that about 35 million Americans saw a chiropractor in the last 12 months. Chiropractic professionals are those who have been extensively trained in the musculoskeletal system. They treat problems with the back and spine through natural methods instead of narcotic pain medication or surgery. Just how effective is that chiropractic care for the millions that visited a chiropractor last year? Find out!
In a recent study published in the British Medical Journal in 2003 an assessment of 183 patients with neck pain who were treated with spinal manipulations, physiotherapy and care from a general practitioner (counseling, education and prescription drugs) showed that “manual therapy was more effective and less costly than physiotherapy or care by a general practitioner.”
Seeking out treatment that is not only more cost effective, but also effective without being invasive is a win-win for all involved.
The mechanisms involved with back pain are usually a combination of spinal misalignments, disc or nerve compressions, subluxations and frozen joints. All of these triggers for your pain can cause a myriad of symptoms including sharp pain, numbing, tingling, inflammation, immobility and an assortment of other issues. Back pain affects how you walk and what you can do during the day.
Chiropractic care incorporates powerful, focused pressure to specific parts of your back and spine to realign it and relieve tension in areas that have become compressed. By correcting improper placement of the vertebrae, subluxations and joints that have become frozen, we can make a noticeable difference in your pain symptoms after even just one visit.

Ultrasound, electrical nerve stimulation and traction, and changes in diet, exercise and lifestyle can also be utilized to help you maximize the benefits of treatment.
