Chiropractic Tips For Back Pain Relief
Regular strength and flexibility exercises are recommended, as most cases of back pain are cause by one quick movement in the wrong direction. If you have pulled a muscle in your back put ice on it immediately. This will help reduce the amount of inflammation in the muscle and significantly reduce the amount of pain.
The team at Northern Edge Chiropractic is trained extensively on correcting the joints and muscles surrounding the spine. We get great results treating people with mid back pain by stopping in for regular adjustments, and can also help prevent further back injuries down the road.
Back pain is more of a general term, but is experienced by nearly everyone at some point in their lives. There are a variety of reasons why a person could be experiencing back pain; however, the most common are muscle strains, facet syndrome, degenerative disc disease, and rib related issues.
There are multiple groupings of muscles the run the entire length of the spine, along with oblique, and intercostal muscles. These muscles are all connected in some way to our spine, and designed to give us movement and flexibility. It is very easy to pull a muscle in the mid back that can cause a great deal of pain. Facet syndrome as listed earlier is a condition where the joints on the vertebrae themselves get irritated and inflamed.
If left alone the friction and rubbing of the facets could cause degenerative disc disease. The best solution to help prevent degenerative disc disease is to see a chiropractor to get regular adjustments. The ribs are very important structures, they protect our heart and lungs. However they are easily irritated, which can cause a great deal of pain. There are intercostal muscles, muscles in between each rib, that can be strained or inflamed.
Each rib has multiple attachments to multiple vertebrae, when a rib moves out of place it is often very painful and hard to get back into place. Thankfully, there are adjustments that chiropractors can do to help with back pain relief. Please contact Northern Edge chiropractic today to get treated.
