If you have ever experienced back pain, you are most certainly not alone, not by a longshot. Back pain is one of our nation’s most common medical condition and the leading reasons so many of us miss work. There is plenty of evidence that suggests roughly 8 out of every 10 Americans will experience at least some form of back problems at some point in their lives. Many of these back conditions will stem from injuries, long-term poor posture and other causes. There are many people who will seek a chiropractor in Wallingford to treat their back pain. But you might hesitate to make such a move if you are unfamiliar with chiropractic care.
Chiropractic care is a health care profession that zeros in on disorders of the spine and nervous system and how it affects your health in general. Chiropractors perform adjustments to the spine and other parts of the body to correct alignment problems. When the back is properly aligned, function is restored and problems are alleviated.
Your chiropractor will typically take a close look at your medical history and perform a physical examination which may even include x-rays. This is how to best determine a course of treatment. Treatments will often include manual adjustments as well as counseling on exercise, lifestyle changes and nutrition. Other treatment options include massage therapy, electric stimulation and heat and ice therapy.
