A car accident injury, sports injury or even poor posture can lead to years of chronic back pain. Our chiropractor in Tacoma has substantial experience treating back pain patients with drug-free pain management solutions, including chiropractic adjustments. Chiropractic care is an effective back pain treatment because it targets the underlying cause for pain, while also providing immediate pain relief. This comprehensive approach to pain management helps our patients return to living full, active lives.
A car accident injury or sports injury can cause serious damage to the musculoskeletal system. When the lumbar spine is out of alignment, a herniated, bulging or slipped disc may compress nearby nerves, triggering recurring pain. If the sciatic nerve is compressed, then patients will experience a radiating pain sensation along the length of this nerve. In addition to lower back pain, individuals may also suffer from radiating or numbing pain sensations in the buttocks and legs.
Chiropractic care addresses the underlying spinal misalignment that is responsible for triggering a patient’s back pain. Unlike medication which temporarily numbs the brain’s ability to perceive pain, chiropractic care targets the root cause. Adjustments create space between compressed vertebrae, allowing the spine to return to its proper alignment. This relieves pressure on the nerves and muscles, providing long-term pain relief.
Our chiropractor in Tacoma uses diagnostic screening tools to precisely identify the location of a spinal subluxation and then provide targeted adjustments. Our gentle, hands-on care is non-invasive and patient-proven to work. Through chiropractic adjustments, we have helped hundreds of patients better manage their back pain – and we’re confident we can help you, too.
Muscular strains and sprains often accompany spinal misalignments. Improperly lifting a heavy object, a sudden impact while playing contact sports, or the force of a car accident injury can tear the ligaments, tendons and muscles that support the lower back. While many of our patients do not remember the exact event that triggered the strain or spasm, they definitely remember the intense pain. Our chiropractor follows an integrated approach to treating back pain. We combine chiropractic adjustments with physiotherapy and massage therapy to reduce inflammation and help injured muscles heal faster.
In addition to traumatic musculoskeletal injuries, poor posture can also trigger chronic back pain. Thanks to our sedentary lifestyles, many individuals today spend long hours hunched over a computer keyboard, slumped on a couch watching TV, or slouching while standing. This poor posture compresses the lower spine, which triggers chronic pain. Corrective exercises strengthen the core muscles and support the spine while ergonomic adjustments help relieve lumbar spine compression.
