Know the Facts about Chiropractic Care for Back Pain
Oct 10, 2016

Chiropractic Care for Back Pain | AICA TuckerIn most situations that involve an injury or pain, our first response is to see our medical doctor.

Medical doctors, such as general practitioners, usually come top of mind when accidents occur or pain becomes intolerable because these are the people we go to for routine care.

When it comes to addressing chronic back pain, Chiropractors are the leading experts on pain management and relief.

In many circumstances, Chiropractors should be consulted first before committing your body to a serious treatment plan that may include more invasive options.

Chiropractic Benefits for Back Pain

The term “Chiropractic” is derived from the Greek work “cheiros”, which translates to “done by hand.”

Chiropractors treat pain and discomfort through physical adjustment and alignment of your musculoskeletal structure.

This method of treatment directly addresses the source of pain rather than treating symptoms. It allows the body to restore itself by putting cartilage, joints, muscles, bones and other musculoskeletal elements back in their proper place, which encourages your nervous system to function better.

Before resorting to surgery or medication, see a Chiropractor to verify your pain can’t be relieved through natural therapies.

Chiropractic care may present alternative treatment options that allow you to forego medication and surgery. It is remarkable what your body is capable of when your internal framework is aligned properly.

Visit one of our Tucker Chiropractors to determine if your body can heal itself before you explore more sophisticated options.

Back Pain Treatment

Of the 22 million people who visit a Chiropractor annually, 35% complain of pain and discomfort in the back.

This pain is typically linked to an injury, accident or strained muscle.

A Chiropractor will treat this by adjusting the spine to reestablish proper movement in joints.

A study was done in Washington to detect early predictors of lumbar spine surgery within three years of occupational back injury. The results revealed that 42.7% of injured workers who first saw a surgeon for their occupational back injury had surgery, in contrast to those who received Chiropractic treatment (1.4%).

A Chiropractor may have tools to treat your back pain, whether it is the result of an accidental injury, sports injury, occupational injury or another cause.

Check with a Chiropractor before committing yourself to invasive surgery and a lengthy recovery.
