Back pain is very common; sooner or later most people will suffer from it. Back pain often starts quickly and subsides just as quick and there is no need for treatment or concern. On the other hand, back pain can be debilitating and persistent, it can also be associated with other pain; legs, neck or sciatica. In many cases the cause is lifting a weight or moving awkwardly, in other cases it can come on quite gradually from poor posture or sitting in one position for hours on end.
Most people turn to chiropractic in Chicago when seeking relief from the pain. It is estimated that at least 35 percent of the over 20 million people that see a chiropractor annually do so because of back pain caused by accidents, sports and strains.
What is chiropractic?
Chiropractic uses spinal adjustments to correct misalignment, providing the body with the opportunity to self-heal. Chiropractic in Chicago does not use drugs or surgical intervention, rather the chiropractor uses very precise pressure on specific parts of the spine to correct any misalignment. Although chiropractic focuses on the spine, it also restores mobility to restricted joints.
A chiropractor will first investigate a patient’s medical history; he or she undertakes a physical exam and may employ lab tests or X-Rays to determine if chiropractic is the best solution.
The chiropractor will make manual adjustments by manipulating the joints; to do this a controlled force is used. The goal of chiropractic is to restore function and prevent further injury.
