How Can a Chiropractor Help with Back Pain?
Our chiropractor can help address a variety of musculoskeletal issues, including back back. When you visit us for your first appointment, we will ask you questions about your symptoms and family history. Afterward, we will conduct a physical exam and perform CT scans or X-rays, if necessary.
Once we determine the root cause of your back pain, we will recommend a personalized treatment plan. Treatment usually includes chiropractic adjustments and other types of non-invasive therapies. Our chiropractor also offers mobilization techniques, stretching exercises, and spinal decompression to alleviate your discomfort. You should also understand that if there are any other health issues, we may refer you to another health specialist.
