Chronic Back Pain Relief Therapy in Miami

Chronic pain in the spine or back can range from mild to disabling. Chronic back pain can either be age-related or from a prior injury like a car accident, sports accident, and muscle strains.

The human back structure works simultaneously to enable us to move around. Because of bones, ligaments, disks, tendons, and muscles, we are able to move efficiently.

Damage of bones, ligaments, disks, etc. within the back, often occur from strain, preexisting conditions, and poor posture. But the impact of an accident can cause long term damage. It can also cause problems anywhere between the neck and tailbone.

Types of Back Injuries:

  • Spondylolisthesis / Lower Back Pain: Spondylolisthesis occurs at the foot of the spine and causes lower back pain. It is a slipping of vertebrae. Spondylolysis is a fracture of one or both parts of a vertebrae. It results in the vertebral slipping back and forth and over a bone below.
  • Cervical Radiculopathy / Pinched Nerves: Cervical Radiculopathy is commonly referred to as ‘a pinched nerve’. It is a nerve function damage that results when one of the roots near the cervical vertebrae is pressed. A blow to the nerve roots in this area can cause intense pain, loss of feeling in the neck, arms, and shoulders, and weakness.

Back pain often feels like an ache or pain anywhere in the back and can sometimes lead lower to the legs or other places depending on the nerves that are affected. This is why it is important to seek a doctor for a thorough physical exam after any type of accident.

Symptoms you might experience due to chronic back pain trauma:

  • Pain down the legs or beneath knees
  • Swelling on the back
  • Weight loss
  • Trouble urinating
  • Persistent back pain

Chronic back pain is a common medical condition. It ranks among the second most frequent medical complaints. Chronic back pain, like the common cold, is also a reason people miss work.

Why Chiropractic treatment is helpful for chronic back pain

Not only do chiropractors treat back pain, but they focus on other conditions like ligament and joint injuries, neck pain, headaches, bursitis, sprains, digestive orders and other negative health conditions. Chiropractors are highly trained doctors that undergo extensive training to help diagnose and treat your problems.

Chiropractors perform spinal manipulation whether it be from a device or by their hands. They apply a small amount of force or sometimes more to readjust the bones in the spine and neck. Spinal manipulation is usually combined with heat and cold therapies, relaxation techniques, massage, electrical stimulation like ultrasound, exercise, and stretching.
