Back Pain

To reduce back pain, a Chiropractor will assess the bone, joint and nerves in the back to locate the source of back pain. There are a number of structures that may be involved for back pain and lower back pain to occur. The facet joint, on the back of the vertebra, is a nerve-rich area which can cause painful symptoms if the interlocking joints are not moving correctly.

The disc between the vertebra can also be a source of back pain. The disc acts not only as a spacer between the spinal bones, but also as a shock absorber. Trauma can cause the soft middle of the disc to bulge or herniate, putting pressure on the nearby nerves.

How can chiropractic care help reduce and relieve back pain?

If you are looking for ways to relieve back pain, then Chiropractic care may be for you. Chiropractic care focuses on correcting the underlying cause of your upper back and lower back pain, rather than just addressing the symptoms. A Chiropractor will locate the areas of the spine that are not moving properly and that are causing back pain / lower back pain. If subluxations are detected, our aim is to correct these through a series of gentle adjustments.

At Optimal Chiropractic, we use a device called an Activator, which is a low- force instrument that will accurately correct the source of back pain and lower back pain. This seeks to relieve back pain and lower back pain and is highly successful.
