Find relief: sleep better and feel better
Neck and back pain can be an acute or dull persistent ache that limits mobility and decreases your quality of life. Sleepless nights and tough days can be some of the day-to-day consequences of neck and back pain. With chiropractic treatment, you too can find relief from pain and improve your days and nights.
What causes neck and back pain?
Your neck and back are composed of so many moving parts, and when one section suffers an injury, the pain can completely inhibit the function of the entire posterior chain. Certain activities and lifestyles present a higher risk of injury than others. Because the neck and back are so interconnected, when you are experiencing an issue with one, the other may begin to present symptoms as well. Often, your pain feels as though it extends from your neck into your back or vice versa. Below are common symptoms of neck and back pain:
- Neck pain and stiffness
- Shoulder pain
- Arm weakness and pain
- Back pain, stiffness
- Difficulty turning or twisting
- Pain when sitting or standing for long periods
When patients are experiencing neck or back pain, it is often an indicator that something isn’t operating normally. Misalignment could mean that bones are making contact, nerves are being pinched, or you have slipped or herniated discs in the spine. Your underlying condition can worsen if it is left untreated. As you try to avoid triggering pain, you will begin to compensate and sacrifice proper posture or function by leaning to one side or only performing tasks on one side.
Your chiropractor will outline a treatment plan to realign the problem area and restore your proper posture and function of the posterior chain. Treatment involves carefully calculated manual manipulation to release tension or realign your back.
Spinal decompression is a pain-free, non-invasive manipulation method for treating neck and back pain. The source of your pain could be the degeneration or herniation of the discs in the spine, which causes the discs or bone to make contact with the nerves surrounding the spine.
Spinal decompression involves the gentle stretching of the spine on a specifically designed table. At Living Better Healthcare, we use the ‘Back on Trac’ machine and are the only office in North San Diego county that has this equipment. This gentle stretching allows an inverted pressure to be placed on the discs in the spine, allowing them to retract into their natural position. This pressure relief also allows for nutrient-rich, oxygenated blood to reach the disc and allow for cellular regeneration to occur. By removing the load from your spine, you have the opportunity to heal from being constantly strained.
