Subluxation is defined as the misalignment within the vertebral column. Stress, injury, and toxins can all be responsible for the misalignment. Generally speaking, subluxations are very painful and have the potential to affect the lifestyle and daily movements of an individual. Despite subluxations being one of the most overlooked back pain issues, a chiropractor is taught to use specific and effective methods and adjustment techniques in order to locate and precisely correct a misalignment.
MUSCULAR SPRAINS AND TENDON OR LIGAMENT STRAINS
A strain or sprain usually originates during a task or activity that our body is not used to doing. Accidents are also capable of causing this condition. The back is particularly susceptible to these strains or sprains as stretching farther than normal or attempting to lift while twisting can both cause this issue. If this does occur, high levels of pain and swelling and bruising is expected. But the good news is that these strains and sprains usually resolve themselves with a simple realignment of the spine and in most cases a chiropractic visit is an appropriate treatment for this condition.
STRESS AND BACK PAIN
Recurring stress can have very harmful effects on the human body and is capable of producing back pain and lead to hypertension as well. As stress hormones are released throughout the body, back pain can arise as the hormones produce tension and muscle spasms. The tension generally accumulates in areas known as trigger points. Professional assistance is needed to work with these trigger points as they can produce excruciating pain. Chiropractors have been trained to work with you to eliminate the stress from these trigger points. A personalized approach will be created in order to eliminate the recurrence of this pain and stress.
