A staggering number of people, roughly 80% of adults, have experienced back pain severe enough to warrant a doctor’s visit. Whether it is due to a sedentary lifestyle, the nature of their work, a sports injury, or some other cause, most people will deal with some form of back pain in their life. While there are multiple avenues to address your lower back pain and get you back on your feet with reduced pain, those options may involve surgery in the worst-case scenario or some form of an opioid prescription to address the problem. Consider chiropractic care as a possible alternative solution for a non-chemical or non-invasive lower back pain remedy. 

How Chiropractic Care Can Help

In terms of managing lower back pain, the key to any treatment plan is identifying the pain’s source. Knowing where it originates helps your doctor and chiropractor know where to begin the treatment. Reported studies have found that working chiropractic care into recovery plans can help reduce pain intensity, improve movement and function, and require less pain medication. Working with an experienced chiropractor can bring about these improvements for your condition and set you on the road to recovery. 

Spinal Manipulations and Your Back Pain

The primary form of chiropractic care is spinal manipulation. Our trained staff will apply a controlled and firm force to the affected areas in a series of spinal adjustments and manipulations, to alleviate the pain you feel in your lower back. The lower back pain chiropractors at Academy Injury and Health Center use the careful application of spinal manipulations and our attention to detail to confront the issues directly. 

A Non-Invasive Approach

Unfortunately, in some instances, the pain and its underlying issue can only be resolved through a surgical procedure. Luckily, however, that is not always the case. There are plenty of instances where we can avoid surgery, and take a more straightforward and targeted approach, which can benefit your long-term health without having to go under the knife. With the help of a trained chiropractor, you can rehab after an accident without undergoing surgery and dealing with the arduous recovery process.
