upper back pain spineEvery day, we see patients who come to our practice searching for back pain relief. Whether your pain is caused by a new injury, chronic condition, or caused by another type of disturbance in your body, we’re here to help with gentle, focused chiropractic care.

What Causes Back Pain?

Back pain can stem from various factors, including misalignments or subluxations of vertebrae, inflammation, disc issues such as bulges or herniations, strains, sprains, repetitive stress or overuse injuries, poor posture, or lifestyle factors over time.

At Oak Creek Relief & Wellness, we believe in a thorough examination to accurately diagnose the underlying causes of your back pain. Our experienced chiropractors carefully evaluate the back and lower extremities using range of motion assessments, orthopedic tests, and palpation. These techniques help us locate the source of your pain and provide valuable insights into your condition. In some cases, X-rays of the lumbar spine may be taken to identify any fractures, abnormalities, or degeneration that may be contributing to your back pain.

What to Expect

Treatment for back pain is tailored to address your individual needs and the specific findings from your examination. Our chiropractors will create a personalized treatment plan designed to alleviate your pain and promote long-term relief.

Chiropractic adjustments play a vital role in correcting misalignments or subluxations of the vertebrae. These gentle and precise adjustments help restore proper spinal alignment, alleviate nerve compression, and improve overall back function. Passive modalities such as electric stimulation or traction may be incorporated to reduce pain and inflammation. These therapies provide immediate relief and support the healing process.

Stretches and exercises are also important components of your care plan. They aim to enhance mobility, strengthen supportive muscles, and improve posture, all of which contribute to long-term pain relief and prevention of future episodes.

Optimizing Outcomes and Preventing Future Episodes

The outcomes of back pain care depend on the severity and cause of your condition. Chiropractic care, combined with self-care techniques, can help resolve mechanical back pain and prevent future episodes.

In addition to our in-office modalities, we may recommend additional clinic therapies and customized home care plans to speed up your recovery. These measures are designed to improve overall function and posture, allowing you to maintain a healthy spine over the long term.
