Most people see a chiropractor when seeking help with relief from aches and pains in their spine or joints.
Back pain is often a complex issue, which can also affect the nervous system, and chiropractic care offers a holistic approach to the whole body.
Back pain is a common ailment, especially when concerned with:
- Physical sports and energetic activities
- Sedentary lifestyle or working environment
- The aging process
- Poor posture
Chiropractic is a hands-on therapy that uses different techniques to help ease mechanical back pain and may include spinal manipulation and quick sharp movements. These safe techniques are designed to improve mobility and alignment.
Chiropractic sessions can be short-term or long-term depending on the severity of the back pain. Occasionally, there may be some side effects experienced after a treatment, which is quite normal. These side effects can include stiffness, drowsiness or aches and pains. They will subside within a couple of days and are simply a sign of you being gently moved back into the correct position – a position that you may not be used to due to the musculoskeletal problems experienced.
