Houma-Thibodaux Spine & Rehabilitation Offers Help For Back Pain
Back pain is a common problem that affects around 80 percent of the population at some time in their lives. The problem results from ordinary activities or an unexpected injury. At Houma-Thibodaux Spine & Rehabilitation, we provide a range of techniques to relieve back pain and improve spinal function.
Common Causes of Back Pain
Back strains can result from ordinary actions, such as moving, home improvement projects, repetitive work duties, and sports activities. However, back pain can also be a sign of herniated discs that cushion the spinal vertebrae. These discs can slip out of position and can become compressed, leading to pain on movement. Narrowing inside the spinal column, a condition called “stenosis,” can also occur. In other cases, aging can lead to arthritis in the spine or degenerative disc disease. Poor posture can also cause chronic pain in the lower back or upper spine. “Text neck” is a problem in the neck and upper spine that results from bending over to read cellphones can also occur. Auto accidents or falls can also lead to dysfunction in the spinal column.
Back Pain Symptoms
Some people experience low-grade, constant discomfort in the lower back. However, others may have sharp pain during movement. Individuals may notice numbness, tingling or weakness in the legs. Pain when sitting could be a sign of a pinched nerve. Other people find that they must do frequent changes of position to relieve the discomfort.
Chiropractic Techniques Can Relieve Back Pain and Stiffness
Your chiropractor can design an individual care plan for your needs. You may require manual adjustment to re-align vertebrae to their natural position. Corrective exercises and physical therapy may be used to strengthen supporting muscles to provide better flexibility and range of motion. Dry needling may be done to reduce pain and muscle tension in specific areas. Spinal decompression is used to gently separate vertebrae to allow discs to return to their correct position. Massage therapy improves circulation to injured tissue for faster healing. Finally, nutritional counseling helps to improve healing and support general health.
