At Home Chiropractic provides chiropractic care for back pain and quick relief for patients in the comfort of their homes or office. 

There are many causes of back pain that a chiropractor is uniquely suited to help alleviate.  Ninety percent of back pain is mechanical, which is often due to poor movement patterns within joints, disks, muscles, or ligaments. 

In the United States, 12-33 percent of people experience back pain at any one time, often for long stretches.

Where does back pain come from?

From a small ache to a sharp pain preventing you from being able to move, back pain can disrupt your life and normal daily activities. Back pain can happen for many reasons, and it often seems to come out of nowhere, prohibiting you from living your life normally. 

 

At Home Chiropractic follows the bio-psycho-social theory of pain. This means pain can come from a biological source, a psychological source, or a sociological source.  

 

As chiropractors, we focus on the biological sources of pain such as: 
 

  • Fatigue

  • Injury

  • Overuse

  • Poor diet

  • Poor Posture

  • Not moving enough

  • Moving too much

  • Pregnancy

  • Muscular Tension

  • Inflammation

  • Knots or trigger points

  • Poor movement patterns

  • Degenerative disk disease

  • Degenerative joint disease

  • Herniations 

  • Nerve Irritation

  • And More



 

It might be only one of these reasons, or it could be a combination of several together.

 

Sometimes it can be a minor incident that can lead to back pain, such as sleeping in an awkward position, lifting and twisting, or jerky movements. Small actions can cause big problems for your back due to everyday life stresses or actions building up over time.

 

It is also important to keep in mind that pain might not come from a biological source but from a psychological or sociological source, such as dealing with death in the family or negative thoughts. Keeping all over health in mind is important for achieving quick and lasting results.

 

Many things can contribute to back pain, and a doctor with At Home Chiropractic can work with you to make a personalized treatment plan to get you feeling your best fast. Book your appointment to get relief from your back pain.

What does a Chiropractor look for when treating back pain?

Chiropractors specialize in non-complicated musculoskeletal conditions looking for the root cause of a patient's pain and the treatment that would work best for them. A thorough history and an examination will help to provide a solid basis for the chiropractor to base treatment. 

 

An accurate patient history will provide the doctor information needed to direct how to examine the condition or problem area. 

 

When examining a patient, the chiropractor will assess how well the patient can move and check for restricted movement in the joints of the spine. The doctor will feel for any muscular tension or soreness and perform orthopedic and neurological tests to help find if the pain is coming from joints, nerves, or muscles. 

 

After completing the history and exam, the doctor will combine all the information together to form an accurate diagnosis. This will help the doctor assign the best course of treatment.

 

Depending on the findings, chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue therapies, dry needling, or chiropractic services can be used by the doctor to quickly get the patient out of pain.

 

Why should I see a chiropractor for back pain?

The benefit of a chiropractor evaluating where the pain comes from is having a hands-on approach. You are not just finding a quick solution to your back pain but finding the source of the pain. 

 

Often in a busy world, people put their health on the back burner. Commonly when this is the case, stress, and tension can build to a point where it is difficult to treat the aches and pains with medication or exercise. This is where a chiropractor comes in. 

 

A chiropractor can quickly help a person to optimize their range of motion, alleviate pain, restore musculoskeletal functioning, reduce stress, and return to a better quality of life. 

 

Don’t put your health on the back burner. With At Home Chiropractic, we can meet with you at  your home or work, saving you the trouble of worrying about getting to a doctor when suffering from back pain.
