Back pain is one of the most common complaints that drives people to visit our Redding chiropractor at Churn Creek Chiropractic, Dr. Hutchings. If you have been suffering silently because you fear undergoing major back surgery or becoming addicted to painkillers, you'll be happy to know that chiropractic treatment can relieve back pain naturally by correcting the underlying cause of the symptoms.
All back pain is not created equal -- there are many varieties of it, each with its own characteristics. Low back pain, for instance, may be accompanied by pain or tingling sensations in the legs; this is due to sciatica, or impingement of the sciatic nerve. An auto accident may create pain in the mid-back due to the twisting of your trunk beneath a three-point seat restraint. Muscle strain usually produces localized pain, but a muscle spasm that pinches a nerve can also cause referred pain elsewhere.
Our Redding chiropractor can evaluate your specific pain symptoms and perform a detailed spinal screening to determine exactly what's causing your back pain. Specific chiropractic methods such as Gonstead and Diversified techniques can then be used to relieve back pain caused by a misalignment or injury. In addition to manual adjustment methods, we can also use a motorized table to apply flexion-distraction technique. This technique gently creates extra space between vertebrae that draws herniated or bulging discs away from nerves and aids in the discs' healing processes.
We can also relieve back pain caused by muscle strains or injuries. Chiropractic adjustment can correct your posture to take stress off of major muscle groups, while massage therapy boosts circulation and relieves pain. Physical therapy can help your rehabilitate weak or stiff tissues.
