Back Pain Treatment in Upland

low back pain relief with chiropractic care

If you are living with chronic back pain then chiropractic care in Upland might be a good treatment option. Many patients’ first visit to a chiropractor is because they are suffering from some level of back pain. Whether it’s upper, mid or lower back pain, the back pain associated with these parts of the body can be debilitating and more often than not results in loss of quality of life. Which is the primary reason why people seek help to begin with.


How Does Chiropractic Help With Back Pain in Upland?

When you stop being able to do the things in life that bring you joy and happiness you are more likely to do something about it. And as unfortunate as it may be, when back pain begins to interfere with your livelihood and your ability to provide for your family, this now becomes more about those that you love and less about you. However, make no mistake, it is about you. Taking care of your health is your number one priority, otherwise, how will you be able to care for those that depend on you?

If you are suffering from any kind of upper, mid or lower back pain, chiropractic can help. It helps by restoring proper range of motion, restoring joint health, restoring proper muscle function, and improving neurological function to the affected area.

Many back pain problems are due to improper posture and vertebral dysfunction. When your posture is not at its best, your muscles and nerves work harder to keep you upright and moving. However, it’s at a cost of energy and compensatory movements that begin to fatigue the area, and thus, leads to back pain.


Disc Bulges and Herniations

Disc bulges and herniations are conditions in which the outer edges of the discs, located between the vertebrae, are damaged. This causes the jelly-like center to bulge or be pushed out. This is a surprisingly common issue and it is often, but not always, very painful. Many people who have this condition feel nothing at all. The quality and intensity of it, for those who experience pain, depends on the type and position of the herniation. If the damaged disc is irritating a surrounding nerve, shooting or stabbing pain along with weakness in the legs is often severe.

It is important that this issue is properly identified and promptly treated to avoid further damage. A chiropractor in Upland will thoroughly assess your back to determine the extent of the issue and the appropriate treatment to prevent worsening of the herniation, and provide relief from the associated pain.


Subluxations

Subluxation is a medical term describing a misalignment in the vertebral column. There are a wide variety of causes, including physical stress, trauma, and toxins. Subluxations are often quite painful and can disrupt normal movement. Subluxations are one of the most commonly overlooked contributors to back pain. Chiropractors are trained to identify and correct this issue using non-invasive adjustment techniques.


Muscular Sprains and Tendon or Ligament Strains

Strains and sprains most typically occur when we engage in tasks that our body is not accustomed to, or when we are involved in an accident. Lifting while twisting, or stretching past one's limits are common causes to strains and sprains of the back. These can be extremely painful, and are often accompanied by swelling and bruising of the surrounding area. Strains and sprains in the back tend to involve changes to the alignment of the spine and typically respond well to chiropractic care.


Stress and Back Pain

Chronic stress wreaks havoc on the body, and can eventually lead to hyper-tension and chronic back pain. The back pain is a result of tension and muscle spasms that occur when stress hormones are released. The tension will often accumulate in what are referred to as trigger points. These trigger points can be extremely painful and need professional attention to resolve. Chiropractors have the knowledge and tools to relieve stress from trigger points and to deal with underlying nervous system imbalances that may be keeping your body locked in patterns of stress and pain.
