Back and neck pain can have a negative impact on your quality of life
Chiropractic care at Rejuvenate Mind-Body Wellness Center in Lee’s Summit, MO works to improve patient’s quality of life by relieving chronic pain.
If you’ve ever struggled with back or neck pain, you know how debilitating it can be. Severe neck pain can make it difficult to drive, look at a computer, and even shower in the morning. And back pain can make walking difficult, sitting uncomfortable, and force you to miss out on work and other activities. But, before turning to invasive surgeries and expensive medications, consider visiting a chiropractic clinic for treatment.
Back and neck pain can be caused by a variety of factors
There are many things that can contribute to chronic back and neck pain. Improper lifting techniques, strain, herniated or bulging discs, are just a few factors that can cause back pain. Neck pain can be brought on by stress, poor posture, looking down at electronics frequently, and more.
When you visit the chiropractic team at Rejuvenate Mind-Body Wellness Center, your doctor will first work to determine what exactly is triggering your chronic pain. So, be sure to write down or think about when you started experiencing pain and if any particular activity triggered symptoms. By diagnosing the cause of your pain, your chiropractor can determine the best treatment option for you and give you tools to avoid those triggers and prevent your pain from recurring.
There are many chiropractic treatment options available
There are many chiropractic treatment options your doctor can use to relieve your pain. In addition to more traditional, or well known treatments like spinal adjustments, massage, ice, and heat, our chiropractic team also uses decompression and electrical stimulation, if needed, to treat patients.
Patients will probably need to have a few treatments before they see results as they aren’t instant. Your doctor will discuss how long it will take before you feel relief when discussing your treatment plan with you.
Part of chiropractic care is preventing the pain from recurring. To do this, your doctor will teach your stretches and exercises you can do at home to prevent symptoms from returning. If your pain is caused by improper lifting techniques or poor posture, they will also teach you techniques to improve those areas so they are no longer triggers for you.
