Why do I have back pain?

There are many possible reasons why you may be experiencing back pain. For example, you may have a medical condition, such as a herniated disc or spinal stenosis. Or, your back pain may be the result of an injury. Lifting incorrectly, poor posture, and obesity are common causes of back pain. To determine the exact cause, our chiropractor may require an assessment.

How long will my back pain last?

The duration of your back pain depends on the underlying cause. For example, if your back pain results from a minor injury, it may only last a few days. However, your back pain may be longer-term if you have a chronic condition like arthritis. Regardless of the cause, you don't have to suffer. Our team at Lake Marion Chiropractic will develop a treatment plan to ease your back pain and improve your quality of life.

What treatment options are available for back pain?

There are many effective ways to treat back pain. Chiropractic care has proven effective. Spinal manipulation and other chiropractic techniques can relieve pressure on the nerves and improve your range of motion. Physical rehabilitation and massage therapy are also excellent treatment options. We will work with you to create a treatment plan that meets your needs.

Why choose chiropractic care for back pain treatment?

One primary reason why people choose chiropractic care is that it treats the root cause of the problem. That's unlike taking medication, which only masks the symptoms. In addition, chiropractic care is a drug-free and surgery-free way to treat back pain. Many people also appreciate that chiropractic care is natural and holistic.

What can I expect during my first chiropractic visit?

We will collect your medical history during your first visit and ask about your symptoms. Then, as you speak to our chiropractor, we will conduct a physical examination. This exam will help us determine the best course of treatment. In addition, we may need imaging tests, such as X-rays or MRI.
