Neck and Back Pain Treatments
Neck and back pain are common complaints we see in our office at Four Points Family Chiropractic in Austin, TX. We offer holistic treatment options to address the root cause of your problem, so you can feel better.
Chiropractic adjustments are at the heart of chiropractic care. Your chiropractor will use gentle thrusts and pressure to correct any misalignments within your spine. Spinal misalignments can cause back pain, neck pain, and stiffness. They also contribute to painful issues, including herniated discs, sciatica, and headaches. Misalignment interferes with your nervous system function and makes you more susceptible to injury as well.
However, chiropractic adjustments are not limited to your spine alone. Your chiropractor can also adjust any joint within your body, from your neck to your ankles. Often, misalignment in one area leads to pain and misalignment in other areas. For example, misalignment in your hips or knees can trigger back pain, and vice versa.
Proper spinal alignment can relieve pain, reduce inflammation, decrease the frequency and severity of headaches, and improve your nervous system function. It also reduces your risk of injuries by allowing your body to function in balance.
As part of your treatment plan, your chiropractor may recommend corrective exercises. They will determine which exercises are beneficial for you and teach you how to perform them correctly. You can then continue to do the exercises at home. Corrective exercises can help strengthen weakened muscles, improve flexibility, and alleviate pain. These exercises also contribute to maintaining proper spinal alignment.
Lifestyle changes may also be recommended. Instead of solely treating your pain, we take a holistic approach to your health. This means we consider how your lifestyle is affecting your condition, as well as your overall well-being. Lifestyle advice may include changes to your routine, such as incorporating exercise and discontinuing bad habits like smoking.
We provide nutritional advice as part of your treatment plan. What you eat can significantly impact pain, inflammation, and overall health. We may recommend an anti-inflammatory diet, assist with weight loss goals, or suggest a detoxification plan for better health.
Massage therapy can be a beneficial treatment for back or neck pain. It helps reduce inflammation and pain, releases muscle tension, and improves lymphatic drainage and blood flow. We offer various types of massage, including Swedish, deep tissue, sports massage, and trigger point therapy.
