When your back stops functioning, so do you. Back pain afflicts half of all working adults in the U.S. each year, and four-fifths of all Americans will struggle with it sooner or later. That adds up to a lot of pain, stiffness, and disability. But you don't have to let back pain take you away from your everyday tasks, nor do you necessarily need surgery to correct the problem. Here at Sweeney Chiropractic clinic in Midwest City, we offer non-invasive back pain treatment options to get you back to your comfortable routine.
How Back Pain Sabotages Your Life
Why and how does back pain occur? The area we refer to as the "back" includes the thoracic, lumbar, and sacral spine, any of which can sustain injuries or develop chronic pain problems. An acute injury is probably the most dramatic and intense form of back pain, if only because it occurs so suddenly. A forceful bodily impact experienced in sports, a car accident, or on the job can dislodge your vertebrae or lead to herniated discs, producing pain not only in your back but also in your legs (due to nerve impingement). Excessive stress due to lifting or twisting can strain the back's muscles and connective tissues.
Chronic back pain may be more insidious in nature, but that doesn't make it less debilitating. An undiagnosed spinal misalignment or other musculoskeletal imbalance can wear away your joints and place abnormal stress on your muscles for years, leading to ongoing pain and loss of function. Bulging discs, spinal osteoarthritis, spondylolisthesis, spinal stenosis, and other chronic conditions can impinge nerves and leave you with constant back pain.
Non-Surgical Relief through Chiropractic Back Pain Treatment
If the thought of going in for major surgery has been keeping you awake at night, relax. Our chiropractor, Dr. Sweeney, can alleviate many cases of back pain purely through non-surgical, non-pharmaceutical care. We start with a spinal exam that includes X-rays of your back, along with a discussion of your symptoms to determine the exact origin point of your pain (which may not be where you're experiencing it). We can then relieve that pain through a combination of chiropractic adjustment, massage, physiotherapy, and corrective exercises. You'll receive your own personalized back pain treatment plan to help you overcome your pain and avoid future pain.
