Back Pain Treatment From Carmel Wellness
Physical pain in your back complicates your ability to engage in certain activities. You may need treatment to manage or eliminate the discomfort. At Carmel Wellness, we recognize that many factors may contribute to your discomfort and we provide the treatments your body needs to heal and recover.
Common Causes of Back Pain
The underlying causes of back pain relate to a variety of factors and situations. It may stem from your activities, lifestyle habits or accidents that cause an injury to your body. It may also relate to factors beyond your personal control, such as developing a curvature in your spine called scoliosis, during your childhood. By identifying the underlying cause of your discomfort, a professional determines the proper solution for long-term wellness and health.
Common factors that contribute to your discomfort include:
- Strains or sprains in the muscles and ligaments
- Injuries from an accident, which may impact the muscles or spine
- Scoliosis, or a curvature of the spine
- A sedentary lifestyle
- Sitting at an office job for hours, particularly when you have poor posture
- Poor posture in any situation
- Degenerative disc conditions
- A herniated or bulging disc
- Arthritis in the spine
- Osteoporosis, or the loss of bone density to the area
When you understand the cause of your discomfort, you have the opportunity to make positive changes. A professional can determine an appropriate strategy for your well-being and needs.
Treatment from a Chiropractor in Carmel
A chiropractor in Carmel develops a personalized treatment plan for your situation and health. At our clinic, we identify the cause of your pain and then develop a strategy to address the underlying factors.
We use a combination of chiropractic treatments, massage therapy and adjustments to your lifestyle to make positive changes to your health. We may suggest losing weight or making adjustments to your dietary habits when it contributes to your discomfort.
Our chiropractic treatments focus on adjusting your spine and neck for proper alignment. We may also use decompression therapy to reduce pressure from bulging discs or similar complications that put pressure on your nerves. Massage therapy helps with soft-tissue repair and injuries to the muscles. It may also help when tension in your muscles contributes to the discomfort you experience.
We take a holistic approach to the healing process. We may recommend adjustments to your diet for better nutrition or to help with weight loss when your weight contributes to the pain you experience. Each treatment plan depends on your situation and we develop a personalized strategy to help with your goals.
When to Seek Professional Chiropractic Care
As a general rule, you want to seek professional chiropractic care in our clinic when you have chronic or persistent pain in your back. You also want to seek treatment after an accident causes an injury to the area and you have concerns about long-term complications. We recommend visiting our clinic immediately after an accident since some injuries may not cause immediate symptoms and may worsen over time without proper treatment. Never wait for treatment when you experience severe pain or you have concerns about injuries to your back.
