Back pain can be frustrating and debilitating. For patients who have become injured or who experience chronic back pain in Tulsa, treatment is often a number one priority. We help patients manage their back pain and heal from their injuries. We also help patients avoid future injuries.
People experience back pain for a variety of reasons, including:
Ergonomic issues. Ergonomic issues can put a strain on the joints and muscles in the back, which can lead to injury and chronic pain.
Poor posture. Poor posture can lead to subluxations, which causes pain in the neck, shoulders, and back.
Stress. Stress causes the muscles to become tense. Muscle tightness can cause pain in the back and shoulders.
Herniated disc. Herniated disc is a condition that occurs when the disc between the vertebrae becomes damaged.
Sports injury. Sports injury causes soft tissue damage, leading to pain.
Auto accident injury. Auto accident injury can cause herniated disc and whiplash, leading to back pain.
As your chiropractor, we use a variety of techniques to help alleviate your back pain in Tulsa. Some of the most common methods we use to treat back pain include:
Spinal adjustment. Spinal helps realign the vertebrae and relieve pressure on the spine. Spinal adjustment helps improve the functioning of the central nervous system, which can help speed the healing process.
Lifestyle advice. Our lifestyle advice helps patients avoid injury and take on behaviors that can lead to better health and less pain overall.
Nutrition counseling. Nutrition counseling is a technique we use to help patients lose weight and have more energy for staying active. Our nutrition counseling helps patients maintain a healthy weight, which can reduce pressure on their joints and muscles, leading to better musculoskeletal health and reduced back pain.
Stretches and exercises. We teach patients to do stretches and exercises which can strengthen the muscles and improve coordination.
Ultrasound. Ultrasound is a method of stimulating healing and reducing back pain.
Physical therapy. Physical therapy helps patients recover strength, balance, and coordination after an accident. Physical therapy can also help patients heal.
Chiropractic care is completely non-invasive and natural. Your chiropractor will help reduce your pain without using addictive pain medications or surgeries. This makes chiropractic care safe for patients of all ages and effective for treatment of upper, middle and lower back pain.
