Back Pain Treatments

Anyone, regardless of lifestyle, age, or background, can experience back pain—a condition affecting millions across the United States and the globe. Back pain is often cited as a leading cause of missed workdays and people seeking medical assistance. Should back pain disrupt your daily life, and you live or work in the greater Katy, TX, area, Dr. Robert Rocque at the Center of Gravity Chiropractic & Rehabilitation Clinic offers various chiropractic and complementary services that provide the relief you need.

Common Back Pain Symptoms

Back pain has varying causes, with symptoms that vary just as much. The following are common back pain symptoms –

·      Discomfort - from dull aching to sharp pain.

·      Sore or tender muscles.

·      Stiffness.

·      A limited range of motion in the back.

·      Muscle spasms in the legs or back.

·      Walking or standing straight becomes painful and difficult.

·      Tingling or numbness in the legs or feet.

It is essential to seek medical attention for symptoms that persist for more than a few weeks – or pain that is chronically severe.

Typical Back Pain Causes

Back pain may be caused by an injury, years of poor posture, or a degenerative condition. Examples include -

·      Sprained Ligaments/Pulled Muscles   Back pain can result from abrupt, awkward movements or repetitive heavy lifting. Poor physical fitness and continual strain may also cause muscle spasms and strains.

·      Arthritis   Several types of arthritis may cause back pain, with osteoarthritis – wear and tear over time being the most common cause.

·      Bulging/Ruptured/Herniated Discs   The discs that cushion each vertebra can rupture or bulge. The misaligned disc may compress a nearby nerve, creating intense pain.

·      Joint Issues

·      Osteoporosis causes brittle and porous bones, making them more vulnerable to fracture.

·      Stenosis – a spinal canal narrowing that tends to place pressure on nerves.

Chiropractic Treatments for Back Pain

Chiropractic care, as a noninvasive healthcare approach, focuses on diagnosing and treating potential mechanical disorders that do not allow your neuromusculoskeletal system, especially the spine – to function at its optimal level.

While Dr. Rocque provides spinal adjustments and manipulation as a traditional chiropractic standard of care, we also provide these complementary options that treat each patient holistically -

·      Spinal Decompression Tables.

·      Cold Laser Therapy.

·      Electrical Muscle Stimulation.

·      Therapeutic Exercise.

·      Impulse Instruments.

·      Therapeutic Ultrasound.

·      Rehabilitation Therapy.

The potential health benefits offered by chiropractic care include -

·      Help with pain and inflammation.

·      Improved range of motion, flexibility, and strength.
