Back Pain Treatment
Back pain can be incredibly debilitating, making it difficult to stand or sit for extended periods and making it difficult to sleep comfortably through the night. If back pain is restricting your ability to live an active life, our chiropractic care team can help. At Chiropractic Health Clinic, we provide non-invasive, drug-free Omaha back pain treatment.
An accident injury and poor posture are two major causes for seeking back pain treatment in Omaha. A slip and fall on a wet floor, an accidental fall while playing sports, the force of a car accident, or sleeping wrong can all cause symptoms of back pain. At Chiropractic Health Clinic the doctors will determine the cause, in many cases a misalignment of spine or a disc injury will place pressure on nearby nerves. This pressure, in turn, triggers pain. While medication may provide temporary relief, prescription painkillers and muscle relaxers can only mask the symptoms of pain. Drugs cannot “stop” back pain or eliminate the cause. As long as the underlying mechanical misalignment remains, back pain will persist.
Chiropractic care is the most effective treatment for correcting the cause of back pain, not just covering it up. Chiropractic adjustments help to bring proper alignment back to the spine. Adjustments restore the proper position of vertebrae in the spine, relieving pressure on the nerves passing between them, which in turn corrects the problem and eliminates back pain. Depending on the extent of a patient’s condition, some patients benefit from ongoing chiropractic adjustments, as part of a proactive approach to managing chronic pain.
Poor posture is also a contributing factor for back pain. Without even realizing it, we can spend long hours hunched over a computer screen or slouched on the couch watching TV. We may even slouch or slump while standing. Over time, poor posture can cause misalignments of the lumbar spine, in turn causing lower back pain. If poor posture is contributing to your back pain, as part of our Omaha back pain treatment program, your chiropractor will make ergonomic recommendations. Simple adjustments to the height and position of your office chair, for example, can help reduce back strain and minimize your pain.
During your first appointment, your chiropractor will perform diagnostic tests to help determine the precise cause for your back pain. For patients seeking back pain treatment in Omaha, we integrate PulStar and Tytronics diagnostic tools into our diagnostic and treatment program. The Tytronics instrument scans the spine with infrared technology, performing an analysis that calculates temperature differentials. These differentials indicate regions of the spine that have inflammation and possible nerve pressure. PulStar is a computerized analysis and treatment hybrid system that allows your chiropractor to view vertebrae that are not moving correctly. Together, these instruments improve the quality of chiropractic care you receive, allowing us to correct your spinal condition, and eliminating your pain!
