Treating Back Pain
Back pain is a common problem among people of all ages and can significantly affect your productivity and mobility in your daily activities. Several factors can lead to back pain, from physical injuries to herniated discs. Chiropractic adjustments can help reduce the severity of these types of pain or even cure them entirely by working closely with a chiropractor. Consult with Dr. Martin at Martin Chiropractic and Wellness Centre in Los Angeles to eliminate the pain and get back to your regular activities.
A herniated disc or ruptured disc occurs when a tear in the annulus (the tough external part of the spinal disc) occurs. When ruptured, the nucleus (the middle, softer part of the spinal disc) can slip through, irritating the surrounding nerves. It weakens the back and leads to severe pain. Chiropractic adjustments can improve the alignment of the spinal discs, thus relieving the pain and strengthening the back muscles.
Sciatica is caused by a compression of the sciatic nerve, usually resulting from a herniated disc or a bone spur, that pressurizes the nerve. It can lead to numb legs, pain, and inflammation, though the pain level may differ among patients. The adjustment will improve your spinal movement and function and reduce pain.
Pain from an Injury
Chiropractic adjustments can relieve pain and improve the flexibility of your back muscles after a back injury. Chiropractors work with you to determine the affected areas and the severity of the injury to find the right treatment plan. With the proper coordination, you can successfully relieve your pain and restore lost mobility in the back muscles.
Osteoarthritis occurs when the cartilage between the bones starts to tear down. Chiropractic adjustments can relieve pain and improve mobility. The chiropractor identifies the affected areas and determines whether there could be other places other than your back that could be experiencing similar problems.
