Back Pain Q & A

How does chiropractic care help with back pain?

When Dr. Ryan sets up a chiropractic care treatment program for you, it’ll likely consist of manual adjustments. During a chiropractic adjustment, Dr. Ryan applies gentle, yet swift force, all over your body. You may feel a release or “popping” sensation, and in some cases, you won’t feel anything. But rest assured, the adjustment is getting your entire skeleton back into line.

Chiropractic adjustments help improve energy flow, boost your body’s healing capabilities, and relieve pressure on nerves. You’ll likely have some back pain relief by the end of your first session, with continued improvement over the following days.

What else should I expect during my chiropractic sessions?

Aside from manual adjustments to realign your vertebrae and joints, soft tissue treatments may be beneficial to you. Dr. Ryan can add cold laser therapy, ultrasound, or electrical stimulation treatments to your chiropractic care plan. These gentle treatments stimulate the healing of soft tissues, including ligaments, tendons, and muscles. They not only feel good (according to many patients), they kickstart your body into a healing mode, allowing those soft tissues to repair themselves.

As an expert in rehabilitation and exercise therapy, Dr. Ryan will probably want to spend some one-on-one time with you working on exercises that can improve your condition. He’ll walk you through each exercise and give you “homework” to do in between sessions. As your muscles strengthen and stretch, your back pain should start going away.

While you aren’t likely to break a sweat or go through anything painful during your chiropractic care session, your body has certainly undergone a lot of treatment. One of the caring team members can apply ice or heat to the treated area to minimize any soreness or stiffness you may have afterward.

Will I need several sessions?

More than likely yes. Chiropractic care is a wellness technique that can certainly improve your pain levels and prevent pain from reoccurring, but it doesn’t work overnight. Depending on your diagnosis, you’ll probably need 2-3 visits per week to start, for at least a couple months. To learn more contact us today.

As your back pain improves and you start feeling better, Dr. Ryan will reevaluate you and adjust your plan accordingly. It’s common for patients to continue coming in for occasional chiropractic adjustments, long after their back pain is gone, just to prevent any future issues.
