How Do Back Injuries Happen?
Back injuries are a common occurrence, especially for people who have to lift heavy objects for a living. When you lift objects improperly, unnecessary force is created on your back, causing it to strain. Other causes of back injuries include:
- Sports injuries
- Overuse injuries
- Wear and tear
- Herniated discs
- General weakness
- Muscle sprains
- Muscle strains
- Car accidents
- Slip and falls
Getting Help from a Chiropractor
Chiropractic care is an excellent treatment option for back injuries. Even if you feel ok shortly after an injury, chances are the pain will return, leading to an increased chance of injury and worsening pain. We will inform you of what activities are okay to do and what activities are off-limits. We will perform a comprehensive exam and create a customized treatment plan to reduce your pain and support the healing process. Your customized plan will likely include the following:
- Muscle massages to reduce inflammation from a muscle strain
- Spinal decompression therapy for injuries related to herniated discs
- Trigger point therapy to help target specific soft tissues in the back
