As one of the most prevalent medical problems in the United States, back pain can range from dull aches to sharp, shooting pains. These pains can be brought on from an injury, disc breakdown, medical conditions and diseases, and even stress. To cope with the pain, many people turn to over-the-counter pain killers or prescription medication; however, these provide very temporary relief and do not address or improve the problem as a whole. Our staff is experienced and certified in providing top quality, professional chiropractic and massage therapy to alleviate your back pain long term. These are physical solutions for a physical problem, which means we use a strategic, hands-on approach to find you the relief you need.
Low Back Pain
Approximately 80% of Americans have or will experience some sort of low back pain in their lifetime. Dr. Jamnik will work with you to determine the cause of the pain in your lumbar spine by administering a thorough neuromuscular exam, discussing your medical history, and going over treatment plans, such as massage therapy, manipulations, and more. The most common types of injuries and conditions associated with low back pain include:
- Disc injuries such as bulge, herniation, or internal derangement
- Sacroiliac (SI) joint pain
- And more
Upper & Middle Back Pain
Although more resistant to injury than your lower back, upper back pain can still be debilitating and bothersome. The thoracic spine, which is beneath the neck down to the torso, consists of 12 vertebrae that connect to the ribs and is generally much more stable. Any upper or middle back pain typically comes from muscular irritation due to lack of strength or muscle strain from repetitive movements. Joint dysfunction from degenerative disc disease or sudden injury may also be the culprit for any pain located in your upper back. At Hiller Chiropractic, we're dedicated to providing effective treatment that reduces your back pain.
If left untreated, your back pain could progress into a much larger condition or disease, depending on the initial cause. Our doctor and massage therapists will determine the best solution for your pain, whether it be manual manipulations, a deep tissue massage, cold laser therapy, or other chiropractic treatments. You don't have to live with your back pain; it's time to get rid of it once and for all!
