Lake Worth Chiropractic Care Targets Underlying Cause for Back Pain
Chiropractic care is effective because it directly treats the underlying cause for your back pain: a spinal misalignment. Accident injuries, such as a car accident, sports injury or workplace injury, are typically the cause for a spinal misalignment. When a herniated, bulging or slipped disc compresses nearby nerves, this triggers back pain. As long as this compression persists, you will continue to experience pain. Chiropractic care is the most effective way to restore proper alignment to the spine, relieving pressure on the nerves and supporting long-term pain relief.
Sciatica is one of the most common causes for back pain. Sciatica occurs when a herniated disc in the lower spine compresses the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve is one of the longest nerves in the body, stretching from the lower back through the buttocks and down the legs. Consequently, this nerve compression triggers radiating pain not only in the lower back, but also in the legs and buttocks. Sciatica can be an incredibly painful and debilitating condition. Chiropractic adjustments are one of the most effective treatment options for relieving this pain without the need for drugs or surgery.
In addition to chiropractic adjustments, Dr. Cacic may also recommend lifestyle changes to support better posture and relieve lumbar spine compression. Poor posture compresses the lumbar spine, which exacerbates pain. Today’s sedentary lifestyles, including the long hours spent in front of computer screens and commuting to/from work, adversely affects the spine’s natural curvature. Poor posture strains the muscles, compressing the spine and triggering pain. Simple ergonomic adjustments, such as changing the height of your office chair or sleeping with a lumbar support pillow at night, can help alleviate this lumbar compression and relieve pain. Core strengthening exercises are also important for improving posture and reducing lower back pain.
Our Lake Worth chiropractor, Dr. Cacic, treats back pain patients throughout Palm Beach County, including Palm Springs, West Palm Beach, Boynton Beach, Lantana and Green Acres. Dr. Cacic’s integrated approach to back pain management combines chiropractic care with complementary therapies, including physical therapy and massage therapy, for drug-free back pain relief. Massage therapy, for example, is effective at releasing stress and tension from the muscles and the body’s connective tissue, for long-term pain relief. Physical therapy exercises are also beneficial for restoring mobility and minimizing pain.
