What can cause neck and back pain?

If you are dealing with acute neck and back pain here in Chula Vista, CA, the most common cause is a strain, sprained, or injured muscle or ligament. This may be due to overuse, heavy lifting, or putting too much pressure on the muscles of the neck and back. If pain is severe, impacting your daily routine, or not responding to home care, then it might be time to turn to our Chula Vista, CA, chiropractor Dr. Wachs for care. After all, recurring or persistent neck and back pain may be due to,

  • Poor posture
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Worn joints
  • Nerve compression
  • A herniated or bulging disc
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Whiplash

How does a chiropractor treat neck and back pain?

The gold standard when it comes to chiropractic care is spinal adjustments. During adjustments, our Chula Vista, CA, chiropractor will apply pressure to certain joints to help move them back into their ideal position to improve spinal health. Spinal adjustments can promote the body’s natural healing processes while also reducing neck and back pain, swelling, and inflammation. Regular chiropractic adjustments can also improve range of motion and joint flexibility.

Spinal adjustments are often combined with other chiropractic treatments and alternative therapies that we offer in Chula Vista, CA, to improve a patient’s neck and back pain. Other treatment options for neck and back pain may include,

  • Myofascial release
  • Trigger point therapy
  • Cold laser therapy or low-level laser therapy

Don’t let neck and back pain rule your life. Our Chula Vista, CA, chiropractor Dr. Wachs and the caring, compassionate team at Wachs Chiropractic Health Center are here to help. Call us today at (619) 427-4747.

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.
