Chronic Back Pain and Chiropractic Care
Chronic back pain can make it difficult for you to enjoy daily activities. At Acme Chiropractic in Sacramento, CA, our chiropractor Dr. Damon West is ready to look at the alignment of your spine and come up with a treatment plan to address your chronic back pain. Through a variety of treatment modalities, it is possible to optimize the alignment of your spine and help to get chronic back pain under control. Even if you are seeing other treatment providers for the same condition, you can see a chiropractor for chronic back pain because it does not interfere with other treatment.
Assessing Your Chronic Back Pain
It may take time to evaluate your chronic back pain in order to come up with a treatment plan specific for your needs. The location of the back pain and length of time that the pain has persisted will help our chiropractor figure out what is going on. Imaging may be done to check for bulging discs, fractures, or structural abnormalities. You will talk about your symptoms with a chiropractor and be able to ask questions about what is going on to cause your pain. Treatment can start once your evaluation is over, and this will get you on the path to recovery. Wear comfortable clothing to your evaluation, and bring a list of questions with you if you have them.
Your Chiropractic Treatment for Chronic Back Pain
Treatment is likely to include chiropractic adjustments to get your spine in alignment, decompression techniques to ease tension, or massage to improve circulation and relax your muscles. Your treatment will depend on what is causing your symptoms and which modalities are best suited for your needs. If you have areas of compression, stretching and decompression techniques are useful to reduce pain. Massage can improve circulation and decrease tight muscles. You will see the chiropractor two or three times a week in the beginning of treatment and slowly taper down until you see the chiropractor once a month for maintenance therapy.
