Back Conditions We Treat

Whether you have an ache or a pain in your upper or lower back, our chiropractor is there to assist. We treat patients who have pain and discomfort as result of overuse. We treat patients who have a lower pain as a result of the natural wear and tear process as well as those who experience personal injuries to the back. It's possible your backache is sciatica if the discomfort is accompanied by numbness or tingling in the lower back that could possibly extend to your toes. Sciatica results from pressure or damage to the sciatic nerve. It's possible to develop this condition as a result of pregnancy.

Another cause of your back problem could be degenerative disc disease, a term used to describe the changes that occur in your spinal discs as a result of age. A herniated disc causes back pain and stems from a disc having a tear. The contents of the disc may spill into the spinal column and irritate the nerves and soft tissue nearby the area. Other possible causes of back pain include spinal stenosis and arthritis, among others.

Treatments We Use

The most common service we provide is spinal alignments. Also known as a chiropractic adjustment, this particular treatment consists of a Tacoma chiropractor manually moving the vertebrae back into the place, so they realign with the discs. Ultimately, this takes pressure off of the nerves and soft tissue surrounding the back. A spinal alignment optimizes blood flow, which promotes healing by bringing the necessary nutrients for healing to the injured area.

Spinal decompression is another service our chiropractors can supply you with for back pain relief. During this treatment, you'll lie down on a table connected to a device with a motor. The device will slowly stretch your body, which will in return stretch your spine. Spinal decompression helps to alleviate pain in patients who have an injured disc by taking pressure off of it. We might also recommend lifestyle changes or conduct hot and cold therapy to relieve your discomfort.
