Back pain has many potential causes and can be debilitating. When you have it, you become miserable until it heals properly. A pulled or torn muscle, injured ligaments or tendons, or an injured spinal disc might cause you to experience extreme back pain. Dr. Herring and our team at The Spine Doc in Birmingham, provide effective and non-invasive back pain treatment. Our experienced chiropractor will ease your pain naturally while speeding up the body’s natural healing process.
Upper Back Pain Treatment
Upper back pain occurs in the thoracic region of the spine. The seven vertebrae in the neck and five in the upper back are especially susceptible to injuries from twisting and turning. If you are in a car accident that strikes you from the side or back, whiplash may occur in the thoracic region of the neck and back.
Our chiropractor will ease the inflammation, swelling, and pain that accompanies thoracic injuries. A combination of therapies is used to treat upper back pain. Your customized treatment plan may include electrostimulation, ultrasound, and massage therapy. These treatments help reduce the inflammation and swelling that cause upper back and neck pain.
Lower Back Pain Treatment
The lumbar area of the back contains the lower 12 vertebrae in your spine. It is very easy to cause soft tissue damage in the lumbar region through improper lifting. Twisting your back in an awkward motion may also cause soft tissue damage that results in a lot of lower back pain.
Dr. Herring will relieve that pain naturally with massage therapy and electrostimulation. Electrostimulation floods the afflicted area with a fresh supply of blood and fluids and flushes out toxins. The red blood cells carry more oxygen to your injured lower back and help to speed up the healing process. Many non-invasive chiropractic treatments can be used to relieve lower back pain.
Slipped and Herniated Discs
You might slip a spinal disc or possibly herniate it by lifting improperly. A car accident or another mishap may cause you to injure one or more spinal discs. Our chiropractor will provide you with spinal decompression therapy to help gently stretch your spine and enable the injured discs to receive more beneficial bodily fluids to help them heal faster.
