Suffering From Back Pain?
Wickwire Chiropractic and Wellness Center Can Help
When your back goes out, so does your everyday way of life. Routine tasks such as getting groceries, driving a car, showing up for work, or playing your favorite sport now seem like unattainable goals. Some back pains may seem so severe that you fear the need for surgery -- but don't panic. Wickwire Chiropractic and Wellness Center can provide Hiawatha and Marion residents with non-invasive treatment options that address, not just your back pain, but the reasons behind that back pain.
Causes of Upper, Middle, and Lower Back Pain
Pain can strike any part of the back. The upper-middle region of the back houses the thoracic spinal column, and this structure can be injured when the spine is twisted too severely from side to side (as often happens in auto accidents or other high-impact events). The lumbar spine in the lower back is also prone to injury from impacts. If the vertebrae or vertebral discs are dislodged, the sciatic nerve roots can become pinched, adding leg pain symptoms to your lower back pain agony. The muscles of the lower back can also be strained if you try to lift a heavy object incorrectly or bend/twist from the waist beyond the tissues' capacity.
Maybe you haven't suffered any kind of accident at all -- but don't discount the ability of chronic ailments to create serious back pain. Degenerative conditions such as spinal stenosis, bulging/herniated discs, and osteoarthritis of the vertebral joints can cause progressive discomfort and stiffness as you age. Poor posture, aided and abetted by underdeveloped back muscles, can lead to chronic soft tissue strain. Your spine may even be out of alignment, another potential cause of musculoskeletal pain in your back.
Non-Surgical Treatment From Any Chiropractor on Our Team
Any chiropractor on our experienced team at Wickwire Chiropractic and Wellness Center can help you overcome your back pain the natural, non-surgical way. The first step is to evaluate your spinal structures, alignment, posture, symptoms, and other factors carefully to pinpoint the origin point and the underlying cause of the pain. If spinal degeneration or misalignment is the culprit, chiropractic adjustments can get your back into shape. Massage therapy is good for injured, strained, or tight back muscles that need accelerated healing and natural pain relief. We may also prescribe physical therapy to help you strengthen and mobilize your back.
