Back Pain Q & ADenison Chiropractic
What can I do for my back pain?
Most people self-treat acute back pain using over-the-counter pain medications. Pain due to a muscular injury, such as a pulled muscle, may be relieved by a warm compress on the area of the pain. If over-the-counter medication does not help, your doctor may prescribe stronger medications, such as muscle relaxants, antidepressants, topical pain relievers, or narcotics such as hydrocodone.
Alternative methods of back pain relief
Many patients have attained back pain relief through alternative methods that are just as effective and in some ways more beneficial than traditional medicine. Acupuncture is a popular treatment for back pain. Yoga has been found to be very effective for relieving back pain. Massage therapy is another effective treatment for back pain.
Should I see a chiropractor for my back pain?
You should definitely see your doctor for recurring chronic back pain that does not go away. It could be a sign of an underlying condition that has nothing to do with your back. A chiropractor can treat back pain due to musculoskeletal issues, but he or she may not be the most appropriate doctor to diagnose and treat back pain caused by a condition affecting the organs, such as kidney stones or a kidney infection.
What types of back pain can a chiropractor treat?
Chiropractors specialize in hands-on treatment for muscular aches and pain, with the emphasis on bringing the body’s musculoskeletal structure back into proper alignment. You would be surprised at how often back pain can be reduced by simply improving your posture. The types of back pain that would most benefit from chiropractic care are acute back pain that lasts no longer than three months and chronic back pain due to overuse or injury.
