Back pain can be one of the most challenging sorts of pain to deal with. Chronic back pain can make it difficult to stand or sit for long periods, to work without difficulty, or to sleep soundly. Whether as a result of an injury, traumatic event or wear and tear over time, chronic back pain can be challenging to address. Treatment for back pain can take years, can be expensive and painful, and can sometimes require follow-up therapy that can have additional consequences and side-effects. Prescription medication masks pain but does nothing to address the source of the pain. At East West Chiropractic, we have years of experience helping Groton residents identify and address what is causing their back pain.
Back Pain Treatment
Many people delay seeking medical attention in treating their back pain, utilizing over-the-counter medications and then prescription medications to attempt to dull the pain. However, these are not long-term solutions. Surgical corrections are sometimes recommended for certain causes of back pain, but not all. However, back pain responds well to chiropractic care. Chiropractic care is an attractive option for back pain relief because it is natural and non-invasive. Rather than relying on prescription medication or resorting to invasive surgery, our chiropractor will work to reduce your pain, improve your range of motion, and enhance your body’s natural healing process.
Chiropractic Care for Back Pain
Chiropractic care provides muscular support and reduces inflammation in the back. This relieves pressure on nerves and soft tissues while also improving the nervous system’s ability to communicate. Chiropractic care is considered one of the most effective modes of care in the treatment of back pain because it has the lowest risk associated with it. This type of therapy includes a combination of strategic stretching and massage to restore alignment, reduce inflammation, and improve the body’s range of motion.
