FAQs About Back Pain in Tacoma

When it comes to back pain, you may have many questions. Our chiropractor in Tacoma can answer all of your questions and provide you with a treatment program to help heal the underlying cause.

What causes back pain?

Back pain can be caused by a variety of conditions and injuries, including arthritis, herniated discs, sprains and strains, degenerative disc disease and facet joint dysfunction.

What are the symptoms of a back injury?

Symptoms of a back injury or condition vary with the individual but may include pain, stiffness, a loss of range of motion and muscle weakness. If your pain extends into your legs, you may have sciatica.

What chiropractic treatments do you officer to help heal back injuries and conditions?

We offer a variety of chiropractic treatments to help heal the underlying causes of your back pain.

  • Chiropractic Adjustments – Chiropractic adjustments help maximize the range of motion of the joint by ensuring it is properly aligned. This helps heal sprains, strains and herniated discs. It can also help alleviate pain caused by facet joint dysfunction and degenerative disc disease.
  • Massage Therapy – Massage therapy helps reduce muscle pain while increasing circulation and facilitating the release of lactic acid.
  • Scar Tissue Release – If you have an old back injury, there’s a good chance that you have scar tissue. These treatments are designed to break apart scar tissue, which helps reduce pain while improving mobility of the previously injured area.
  • Spinal Decompression/ Manual Traction – This treatment helps heal herniated discs and pinched nerves by gently stretching the spine.

Do you have any new patient specials?

We are currently offering free initial consultations for all new patients. All you have to do is mention the special when you call.
