If you have back pain due to a sports injury, sciatica, headaches, or a condition, the discomfort can prevent you from completing daily tasks and limit your mobility. At Preferred Chiropractic in Atlanta, GA, we offer chiropractic care to reduce your pain and help you heal naturally. You can learn more about how chiropractic treatments can be beneficial for back pain below:
Treatment for Back Pain
When you visit us for back pain treatment, our chiropractors will perform an evaluation to determine what is causing your symptoms. You may need imaging so we see if there are any disc ruptures or fractures. The evaluation will also include a discussion of your medical history, the onset of symptoms, and any treatments or remedies you have tried so far to reduce your symptoms. We’ll also perform a series of tests to check your strength and range of motion. Our chiropractor will ask about your current level of pain and check the alignment of your spine to determine where the alignment may be occurring. Once the evaluation is complete, your treatment can begin the same day.
What to Expect During Chiropractic Treatment
You can expect to be scheduled several times a week, which can help you heal faster. It is important to understand that treatment is progressive and you will notice a significant reduction in your symptoms if you are consistent with treatment. Our chiropractor might use decompression techniques to address sciatica, massage or ultrasound to relax muscles, or chiropractic adjustments to get your spine into alignment. Treatment should not be painful and you might feel relief after your first session. As you progress in therapy, you may be taught exercises to do at home in between sessions. These exercises will help you become stronger and make it easier for your body to heal.
