Back Pain and Injury Alleviated with Chiropractic Care
Millions of people suffer from occasional or ongoing back pain, and many never seek treatment beyond over the counter pain medications. Here at Cornerstone Chiropractic in Everett, Washington, we aspire to help those individuals discover a life free of pain in a natural way without the need for medications. We use non-invasive chiropractic methods to treat and prevent injuries that cause upper and lower back pain.
Our services are designed to equip and empower the body to rehabilitate itself using manual adjustments of the spine and neck, as well as corrective exercises and massage therapy to help facilitate healing. Chiropractic adjustments encourage the spine, vertebrae, discs and joints to return to a natural alignment that creates a healthy framework to support the body.
We often incorporate massage into our treatment plans to help reduce pain and inflammation, as well as relax muscles prior to chiropractic adjustment. We can also teach you how to adopt a lifestyle that promotes wellness and physical healing, and that could help you avoid a resurgence of pain in the future.
Everett Chiropractors Specializing on Upper/Lower Back Pain
Personal Injury, Sciatica, Fibromyalgia, and More
Many of the patients we treat who complain of pain in the upper and lower back are suffering from some type of personal injury. Injuries can occur to any part of the musculoskeletal system as the result of a force or trauma. Examples include auto accident injuries, workplace injuries and slip-and-fall injuries -- all of which can cause joint dislocation, disc herniation and other painful symptoms.
Our office also treats the symptoms of sciatica, which is a set of conditions caused by a pinched nerve or bulging disc in the spine. Sciatica may not only cause pain, but it can also result in chronic numbness, tingling and even a burning sensation in the hips, buttocks, back and thighs. Fortunately, the symptoms of sciatica are treatable with chiropractic treatment.
It is important to visit a chiropractor at the first sign of pain if possible. Letting back pain continue untreated can result in additional complications and worsening of symptoms. It is not uncommon for individuals to experience pain that spreads to the neck and joints, or an increase in recurring headaches and migraines. By visiting our Everett chiropractor, you can quickly find out if your pain is caused by lifestyle habits or an underlying injury, and we can develop a personalized treatment plan to meet your needs.
Left untreated, personal injury pain may become more severe, and it may also become more difficult to treat with time. If you live in or around the Everett area and are suffering from ongoing upper or lower back pain, the symptoms of sciatica, or if you have been injured in a car accident or other incident, make plans to be evaluated by our chiropractor. Even if symptoms are not immediately present, early treatment can prevent the build-up of scar tissue, and may also prevent some symptoms from occurring altogether. We look forward to treating you soon!
Common Questions about Back Pain Relief
Finding relief for back pain can seem like an insurmountable task. When you visit our Everett chiropractor, however, you’ll benefit from expert treatments designed to target the source of your pain and eliminate it. If you’re new to chiropractic care, it’s common to have some questions about how it all works, and we’ve endeavored to answer some of the most common of those we encounter below.
Why Does My Back Hurt?
There are a wide range of injuries and conditions that can lead to back pain. Some are chronic, as in the case of rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, scoliosis and degenerative disc disease. Others may be the result of a traumatic injury, such as whiplash suffered in a car accident.
We also see a large number of patients with herniated or slipped discs, sprains, and strains that are the result of lifting improperly, and many of our patients simply have a spinal misalignment that is causing their symptoms. These types of misalignments make it more difficult for your spine to support the rest of your body properly, which puts added pressure on the associated muscles and other soft tissues, causing them to cramp and spasm.
How Does a Chiropractor Provide Low Back Pain Relief?
Our chiropractor provides low back pain relief through a combination of gentle spinal manipulations and soft tissue therapies. These techniques, taken together, allow us to restore proper alignment of your vertebrae while at the same time reducing inflammation in the surrounding tissues.
What Are the Benefits of Chiropractic Back Pain Treatment?
Our treatments focus on restoring function and reducing pain through the use of non-invasive techniques and therapies. This means that you won’t have to deal with any of the risks or side effects commonly associated with surgery or prescription pain medication. Chiropractic care also encompasses a holistic approach to wellness that can often produce positive results in cases involving chronic pain that's caused by a combination of issues or conditions.
