Back Pain and Chiropractic

This is what most people think a chiropractor does all day; fix bad backs. The reason is everyone has experienced or known someone with back pain. Many of those people have been helped by a chiropractor.

While I will say chiropractic is for so much more; I want to explain why and how it works for back pain. When a joint locks up in the back the message of pain gets sent to the brain, and the process of degeneration begins. We restore proper movement in the joint and it stops that degenerative process. Also, it turns that pain signal off. This allows us to listen to our bodies feedback.

Another very common aspect of back pain is radiating pain (radiculopathy). Many people think any pain in the legs from the low back is sciatica, but that only incorporates one nerve. Many nerves can be effected in low back or mid back issues. So it is important to avoid catch-alls, and instead do specific tests with a competent chiropractor. We at Radix do specific neurological scans to locate the exact cause and location of your individual problem.

Locating a specific cause leads to a specific solution. This allows for the fastest and safest results. I always say that Chiropractic is the safest, least invasive, and most cost effective solution. When choosing treatment you should always go least invasive first. Don’t let us be your last resort. Save yourself time and money. Let us help you and your family.
