Upper Back Pain: Why Chiropractic Treatment Beats Painkillers Every Time
Whether you're experiencing a dull ache in the back of your shoulders, tingling in your upper back, or numbness below your neck, you know that upper back pain can put a damper on your daily activities. At the Chiropractic Offices Of Roy A. Logan, DC, we believe in treating your upper back pain with quality, professional chiropractic care. Let's talk about how chiropractic care differs from traditional medicine, and how it's a great choice for relieving upper back pain.
Chiropractic Care vs. Traditional Medicine for Upper Back Pain
When you're struggling with pain, finding the treatment that works for you can be frustrating. You may have already tried traditional medicine, only to have the pain return when you stopped using painkillers. Traditional medicine treats upper back pain by temporarily relieving the symptoms. This can be helpful in some cases, especially for acute injuries. For most people who suffer from upper back pain, however, the pain keeps returning.
Chiropractic care for upper back pain prioritizes fixing the problem that causes the pain, rather than simply covering up the symptoms. Our chiropractor will work with you to understand what facets of your lifestyle are causing your back pain to keep coming back. As chiropractors, we believe that your body has the ability to heal itself when given proper care. We use a combination of different modalities to treat your pain so that we give your body the best shot possible at natural rehabilitation.
During your appointment with our chiropractor, we'll talk about the symptoms you've been experiencing. We may perform a painless spinal adjustment to see if having your spine properly aligned helps your symptoms dissipate. We'll also talk about lifestyle factors that may be affecting your back pain.
While some patients feel near immediate relief of their upper back pain after having a spinal adjustment, some people need more than one treatment to get pain relief. Our chiropractor will assess your condition and talk with you about an effective treatment plan to help your healing process continue. It's important that you call our office if your back pain worsens so that we can adjust your treatment plan.
