Do You Have Back Pain? Here's Why You Probably Need a Chiropractor in St George, UT

Back pain is a common complaint among a vast portion of the population. It can be caused by so many different things. Some of the most common causes, however, are muscle strain and/or tension, pulled muscles, inflamed tendons and/or ligaments, herniated discs, and spinal mis-alignment. A chiropractor can fix all of these things and give you the relief you seek.

Chiropractors do more than just physical manipulations of the spine, though they still definitely use that technique when it is appropriate. These days, there are many different methods a chiropractor can use to help heal your back pain. The method used will depend on the cause of the pain, as well as your age, size, overall health, and a variety of other factors.

How Back Pain is Treated with St George Chiropractic Care

If your disk is herniated or you have a mis-alignment of the spine, a traditional physical manipulation, such as spinal decompression, may be just what you need. Manipulating the spine using the hands of the chiropractor helps put discs back where they belong. When the discs are in their proper position, they don't press on nearby nerves, causing pain. Muscles around the affected area can also relax, because they aren't tensed up anymore in trying to protect the area and keep you standing upright without a slouch. It can take several visits with a chiropractor getting these manipulations for the results to become permanent, but they eventually will in most cases, as the soft tissues around the spine become stronger. When they are strong enough to keep the disc or spine itself in position, you are healed.

People who are too young or too physically delicate for a regular physical manipulation, or who prefer a different method of treatment, may be treated with a handheld tool that places an appropriate amount of pressure on the individual vertebrae that are affected and causing the pain. This gives you the benefit of a physical manipulation without being twisted and/or pushed on, as in a traditional adjustment. This method of treatment is perfect for children.

If you have muscle tension that is causing back pain, your back pain can be treated by massage therapy or gentle muscle pulling in special traction machines. These are all part of modern chiropractic care, and provide the means of healing and pain relief you seek.
