Back Pain

Back pain is the most common condition seen by chiropractors. In fact, 80% of people will experience back pain at some point in their lives. However, when it is not treated, the discomfort can become chronic and lead to further complications. At West Knoxville Medical and Chiropractic in Knoxville, TN, we provide a variety of treatments to reduce your aches and help your body heal. Before scheduling our appointment, learn how chiropractic care can be effective for back pain below:


Common Causes of Back Pain

There are two basic types of back pain. Acute back pain typically starts suddenly. It's usually caused by an injury. Poor posture, spinal misalignment, and a lack of exercise can contribute to this type of back pain. Chronic back pain is pain that lasts for 3 months or longer. It can have many causes, including spinal misalignment, bulging or herniated discs, injury, degenerative disc disease, and arthritis.

Treatment for Back Pain

Our chiropractor may offer several treatments for back pain. However, the process begins with a diagnosis and treatment plan. We will perform a physical exam and speak with you about your symptoms, lifestyle, and medical history. Once we identify the root cause of your pain, we will create a treatment plan. Our family chiropractor focuses on treating the underlying cause of your pain, instead of the symptoms.

Chiropractic Adjustments

A chiropractic adjustment is often the first treatment performed by a chiropractor. Our chiropractor will use gentle pressure and thrusts to correct any misalignments. This can relieve your back pain, reduce inflammation, and improve nervous system function. It also increases blood flow, which can speed healing after an injury.

Therapeutic Exercises

Our chiropractor may also recommend that you do therapeutic exercises. We will teach you how to do the exercises that are beneficial for your situation. You'll continue these exercises at home, which can strengthen weak muscles, help maintain proper alignment, and improve your range of motion over time.

Myofascial Release

The myofascia is a web of tissues that connect muscles and bones throughout your body. Just like muscles, these tissues can become tight. Myofascial release uses massage techniques or pressure point therapy to release the tension in the myofascia. This can relieve pain caused by myofascial pain syndrome.

Nutritional Counseling

We can recommend healthy foods to consume, which can reduce inflammation, relieve pain, and help you feel better. Along with that, adding the necessary nutrients, vitamins, and minerals to your diet can speed up the healing process and improve your overall health.
