Chiropractic Care for Back Pain
Back pain is extremely common. Whether it’s acute and temporary or debilitating and chronic, chances are good you’ve experienced some sort of back pain in your life.
A lot of factors can cause back pain, including lifestyle, poor posture, injuries, the type of work you do and how much time you spend on your feet each day.
Time is also a factor. Much like a cavity in your tooth – many conditions that cause back pain (disc damage, pinched nerves, arthritis, etc) are not initially painful. By the time the cavity in your tooth hurts, it’s already too late and the dentist has to repair it. Just like a dental check-up, this is why it’s so important to have your spine checked before the pain starts if possible.
While some people just accept their pain and consider it a normal part of life, many seek relief. It’s estimated that 85% of people have sought treatment for severe back pain at some point. In fact, back problems are often rated among the top three reasons people go to the doctor.
The usual prescribed course of treatment for back pain involves physical therapy, painkillers, self-care and even surgical procedures. While these treatments may work, they also pose significant risks. Chiropractic treatment for back pain is a noninvasive, drug-free alternative to traditional treatments.
You aren’t alone in your pain, and you don’t have to accept it. If you decide that you should see a chiropractor for your back pain, Thrive Chiropractic Group can help you find relief.
Benefits of Spinal Manipulation
Many patients who seek treatment for back problems are looking for immediate relief. Chiropractic treatments will quickly reduce some pain and discomfort, but they’ll also do so much more.

- Improved mobility.

- Improved sleep.

These benefits combined with the reduced pain and discomfort will help you live a happier, healthier life.
