Pain in the upper back can be caused by a variety of problems. The most common one is overexertion, but twisting in unnatural ways can also cause it, as can poor posture. Spinal problems like disc degeneration are sometimes at fault, as well.
Thanks to growing awareness of the problems with opioid painkillers, more and more people are seeking chiropractic care for their back pain. This type of care offers natural, drug-free pain relief.
The first step to chiropractic back pain relief is an examination. This will let the doctor know what is causing your pain. Then, a treatment plan is developed.
In most cases, spinal adjustments will form the foundation of your treatment. This is because back injuries often result in misalignment of the vertebrae. Since the problem is actually structural, painkillers and other cover-ups do not provide lasting results.
Chiropractors typically combine other types of treatment with spinal realignment to address related problems such as strains, sprains, and tight muscles. Therapeutic massage, corrective exercises, and acupuncture are just some of these therapies. A good treatment plan will let them all work together to produce fast healing and relief from your upper back pain.
If it turns out that your daily activities are contributing to your upper back problems, your chiropractor will offer advice for healthier ways to go about them. For example, if you bend over a desk all day, you will likely be advised to adjust your working environment so that you can sit up straight. Similar tips can help you with other activities by reducing the amount of strain your upper back is exposed to.
