How Chiropractors Can Relieve Back Pain

san antonio chiropractorThe back takes on a heavy load every day. Virtually any activity from walking, to carrying items, to the force of a car accident has an impact on your back. The back consists of an intricate network of bones, muscles, and ligaments that take the brunt of your daily activity.

Although your back is one of the strongest systems in your body, it is also one of the most susceptible network of your body because it is so flexible and supports so much of your body’s movement. Among all injured people, back injuries make up a large percentage of those injured. In high impact situations, such as fall and auto accidents, the back along with the neck makeup the most injured areas.

Due to its intricate network of connections, the back is particularly vulnerable to injury. According to WebMD your spine or backbone is made of 33 bones and tissue extending from the skull to the pelvis. Injury to any one of these bones or tissues can cause significant discomfort or pain. Other movable joints within the body such as the shoulders, neck, and elbows have a limited amount of weight they support. The back is unique in that almost every typical daily movement involves significant weight on your spinal cord and back. The constants force and pressure your back endures leaves it extremely vulnerable to stress, pain, and ultimately injury.

The multiple tissues within back muscles, tendons, and ligaments are often injured from excessive use, repetitive strain, falls, and many types of accidents. Since the back plays a consistent role in our daily lives it can often be difficult to treat. Many physicians are not prepared to treat back injuries, but Chiropractic Doctors are specially trained to identify back issues and quickly determine how to treat and heal them.

Causes of back pain and injury

Back pain can be caused by numerous activities. Excessive use of the back without proper rest and treatment can lead to pain. Accidents at work or in automobiles are some of the most common causes of injury. Typically even injuries to other parts of the body such as whiplash can radiate pain into the back. Back injuries are also often seen in athletes who apply extreme force to their body and joints.

Any repetitive type activity can cause discomfort or injury to the back. Football players, soccer players, weightlifters are all extremely vulnerable to pain and injury.

In addition to athletes, even people who perform seemingly routine activities are very susceptible to back injury. Work environments that call for repetitive motion or strenuous back activity are at high risk. Delivery personnel, bus and truck drivers, and service personnel such as waiters who consistently carry trays commonly experience discomfort and pain in their backs.

Avoiding back pain

Back pain can be avoided with care. Before performing activities that involve abnormal repetition or place strain on the back, the back should be stretched and flexed to ensure it is ready for the stress it is about to endure. Additionally one should limit placing excessive stress on the back, for example if transporting heavy boxes, you should limit the number of boxes you carry on each trip.

If you do begin to feel back pain, you should take steps to resolve the problem as soon as possible. New aggravations and injuries in your back usually respond will to cold therapy and chiropractic treatment. Seeing a chiropractor sooner rather than later can help identify the source of the pain early on and provide remedies to prevent further injury and resolve pain. Not addressing your back pain can lead to serious injury.

Chiropractic care for back pain and injury

Chiropractic treatment is extremely beneficial for pain and injury to the back. Chiropractic care helps relieve pain, increase range of motion, improve flexibility, and reset your back to its optimal function.

At San Antonio Pain and Injury Doctors we offer free consultations to anyone having back pain or discomfort. Our chiropractors will explain thoroughly the benefits of chiropractic care for your situation and discuss potentially options to alleviate your pain. Multiple chiropractic techniques are known to be consistently effective for various types of back pain. Chiropractic care is often favored over other treatments because it performed externally to the body, it is extremely productive, and is very safe and tolerated by the injured person.

As with any type of injury, rest of the back goes a long way in helping your body recover. Together chiropractic care and rest are often an ideal combination to having a health body and back. With the back playing such an important function in the body, it is important to give it the attention it needs to recover.

Chiropractic is the preferred treatment for back injuries because it is minimally invasive and extremely effective at relieving pain.
