Back pain, neck pain, and joint pain are all complaints which can be treated by chiropractic methods. While joint pain can have many different causes, chiropractors are trained in treating all sorts of pain, without recourse to prescription drugs or surgery. Chiropractic treatments are very safe and can be effective in reducing pain from any number of causes. A chiropractor on our tea, and staff at Taber Chiropractic & Laser Spine Therapy Center have extensive experience in treating patients from the community in and around Bowie, MD.
Causes of Back and Neck Pain
The spinal column is a very complex structure made up of vertebrae encasing the spinal nerve. It is designed to fit together and to carry the weight of the body as we stand upright. The spine can become misaligned for any number of reasons, ranging from accidents to poor posture, or every day activities.
Whatever the cause, a misalignment of the spine can lead to back or neck pain, either because the bones that make up the spine have shifted out of place, the discs that cushion those bones have become compressed, or the nerve that runs through the center of the spine has become pinched, interfering with signals moving up and down the neural network.
Surgery or painkillers might be prescribed for back or neck pain. At Taber Chiropractic and Laser Spinal Center, we offer a holistic and natural approach to treating back and neck pain that doesn't depend upon surgery or prescription drugs.
Chiropractic Treatment for Back and Neck Pain
Back pain and neck pain can be helped through chiropractic adjustment. The adjustment is designed to restore the correct alignment of the spinal column. Adjustments may help relieve pain in many of our patients.
Other options available to treat neck and back pain include spinal decompression and laser treatment. These options can be helpful in treating pain due to herniated discs. In some cases, surgery and drugs are recommended to treat herniated discs. However, these treatments aren't always successful in reducing the pain, and carry side effects and risks including the danger of addiction to pain killers. Laser therapy delivered by low energy lasers, and other chiropractic methods, can reduce pain.
Other non-intrusive treatments for back and neck pain include stretching and strengthening exercises designed to improve the back and neck muscles. Sometimes, lifestyle changes like an improved diet and nutrition can help reduce inflammation and thus reduce chronic pain due to arthritis or similar causes.
