If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.

Back PainMedication isn't the only option when you have neck and back pain. Chiropractic treatments target the source of your pain, rather than just masking the symptoms. Chula Vista, CA, chiropractor Dr. Steven Wachs uses a variety of chiropractic modalities to relieve neck and back pain.

Why does my back and neck hurt?

Neck and back pain may occur if the vertebrae in your spine become misaligned. A fall or blow can cause your painful symptoms, but poor posture may also lead to an aching neck and back. In fact, Chula Vista office workers and others who spend hours in one position often suffer from neck and back pain. Bending your head downward to view smartphones, tablets and other digital devices may also place stress on your neck and upper back, causing painful symptoms.

You may be more likely to experience neck and back pain if you have certain conditions, such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, spinal stenosis or herniated discs in your spine.

How can chiropractic treatment help?

Although medications can dull the pain of neck and back pain, your symptoms will return or persist if you don't treat the source. Visits to your chiropractor include examinations to determine the cause of your pain and diagnostic tests, such as X-rays. Based on the results of your examination, you'll be presented with a treatment plan that will relieve your symptoms naturally.

Chiropractors often use spinal manipulation, a hands-on technique that gently restores the natural alignment of your spine, to ease both back and neck pain and inflammation. Once your spine is properly aligned, your muscles may feel looser and you will probably find that it's easier to move your joints.

In addition to spinal manipulation, you may receive several other types of treatment, such as hot or cold therapy, massage, electrical stimulation or advanced laser therapy. Your chiropractor may also recommend exercises that will help strengthen the muscles that support your bones and joints.

Find real relief for your neck and back pain with chiropractic care. Call Chula Vista, CA, chiropractor Dr. Steven Wachs at (619) 427-4747 to schedule your appointment.
