Where Our Doctor Makes the Difference.
Lower Back Pain and Spinal Mobility
If you are suffering from back pain, do not place too much emphasis on getting a CT or MRI scan. Pictures can only tell us so much about the root of your injury. Back pain is generally a product of function, rather than a structural issue. In other words, you are sore because your spine is not moving properly.
A Common Problem
Lower Back Pain will affect 8 out 10 people at some point in their lives. Moreover, the condition affects more than adults; children also need back pain relief after a sports injury, a fall on the playground, or a similar accident. Heavy backpacks also contribute to both upper back pain and lower back pain, a source of discomfort easily avoided but often ignored.
Chiropractic Care for Back Pain Relief
Dr. Olson analyzes your overall spinal mobility, flexibility, and strength and provides back pain relief by realigning the spinal vertebrae. Chiropractic adjustment therapy includes spinal manipulation, therapeutic exercises, and and often patients are referred out for concurrent deep tissue massage. Consider postponing the surgery doctors typically recommend for chronic back pain, “lumbar fusion,” and instead try combining chiropractic care with exercises for back pain.
A Permanent Solution
A chiropractic adjustment is often the only way to achieve sustained back pain relief, and is more effective than the short-term solutions offered by prescription drugs. Chiropractic care replaces the band-aid of medicine by moving beyond pain management. Instead, Dr. Olson restores the spine’s function through manipulations aimed at resolving lower back pain.
