You’re at the park with your kids. One wants you to push them on a swing, and the other wants you to kick a ball with them. You know that spending quality time with them is important, especially while they are young, but lately, you’ve been dealing with chronic back pain. Instead of creating meaningful memories with your loved ones, you sit at the bench groaning with discomfort.
If your back pain is interfering with your ability to live life to the fullest, it’s time to get professional help! At Wills Chiropractic, we can treat the source of your neck or back pain and enable you return to the activities and people you love most. Here are ways that your chiropractor can help!
It’s hard to treat a problem if you don’t know its source. In some cases, the site of back or neck pain is also where the issue lies. However, in some cases, such as frequent headaches or numbness and tingling, the origin of the discomfort can be elsewhere. For instance, the upper back or neck muscles stabilize the head, so problems in these muscles can cause headaches. As an expert in the nervous system, Dr. Wills will perform a thorough evaluation and find the reason behind the problem.
Many instances of back pain are actually caused by some misalignment along the spine or prolonged, improper posture. Whether you have muscle spasms, pinched nerves, or sciatica, a methodical spinal adjustment can go a long way to eliminating back pain. Basically, when everything is in its appropriate alignment, you can have more mobility and function better.
Rehab Stretches and Exercises
Part of Dr. Wills’ job is to educate patients on ways that they can alleviate their back pain at home. Although adjustments should be handled by a trained professional, you can do many exercises and stretches on your own to reduce your back or neck pain. For instance, making sure you have the proper posture while you sit at a computer, regular stretching, and strengthening certain muscles can dramatically improve your symptoms over time, giving you more freedom to do the things you enjoy.
Spinal Decompression Therapy
When the soft substance between the discs in your back places pressure on spine (i.e., you have a herniated or bulging disc), we can provide spinal decompression therapy. This treatment can relieve pain and put this jelly-like matter back into its proper place.
Ultimately, we at Wills Chiropractic want to help you be able to spend your time doing what you love with those you love. Whether that entails playing with the kids, running with the dog, working a on special project, or whatever the case may be, our team can provide the care you need to stay healthy and strong through it all, enabling you to achieve your best life.
