Our Approach to Back Pain Treatment at Cape Coral Family Chiropractic
Most people who have experienced any type of back pain will agree that it can stop the strongest person from doing even the simplest things. Here at Cape Coral Family Chiropractic, we can’t stress enough the fact that back pain is a condition that can manifest in anyone, and at any age. Any complaint about back pain should be taken seriously. Our Cape Coral, FL, chiropractor uses both modern and traditional chiropractic treatment modalities to treat patients of all ages for back pain.
The Causes of Back Pain
Back pain can occur for any number of reasons. Here in our office, we see many people seeking back pain treatment following a sports injury. We also treat children who have strained the muscles in their backs as a result of lifting and carrying their book bags. It is important to note that back pain can also develop as a by-product of a chronic disease or illness. Back pain can also serve as an indicator that something is not right in your body. Some common causes of back pain include: spinal stenosis, osteoporosis, and arthritis
Our Approach to Back Pain Treatment
Our Cape Coral chiropractor treats patients with several goals in mind. Our doctor’s main concern is to alleviate our patients’ pain. The other goal is to find the source of our patients’ pain and address it. In our practice, our team works hard to identify underlying issues that could exasperate or even be the cause of a patient’s back pain. Before treatment begins, we will perform a comprehensive chiropractic examination to detect the underlying causes of your back pain. For example, if our exam reveals scoliosis or a slipped disc, we use this information to inform our treatment.
Chiropractic Treatment Modalities Used in Our Office
Our chiropractor uses several treatment modalities in our back pain treatment plans. Some of the treatments used include spinal manipulation, spinal decompression, heat therapy, ultrasound therapy, and cryotherapy. Our doctor may evaluate the nutritional needs of a patient and include dietary recommendations as a part of a back pain treatment plan.
In addition, our chiropractor assesses the positioning and the strength of patients’ bodies. Our chiropractor’s observations may lead to patients being placed on an exercise regimen to help strengthen key muscle groups. This aids in the recovery process and helps minimize the risk of future injury.
