At some point in your life, you’ve probably pulled a muscle in your back. Perhaps it was because you pushed yourself too hard at the gym, or you tried to lift a heavy box. When an ice pack doesn’t help and your back pain persists, along with stiffness or numbness, you may need chiropractic treatment.
Over the years, we’ve seen patients from Orem and Lehi seeking back pain relief. The causes of their problem vary, including:
•Bulging or ruptured discs — Intervertebral discs act as cushions between the bones in your spine. When a disc becomes strained or irritated, it can bulge or rupture and press on a nerve, causing persistent pain and numbness in the lower back.
•Osteoporosis — This condition weakens bones, including vertebrae. It can lead to painful compression fractures due to the bones being porous and brittle.
•Arthritis — Osteoarthritis can cause problems with the lower back, hip joints and other parts of the body. It can cause pain, inflammation and stiffness.
•Abnormal curvature of the spine — If your spine curves in an unusual way, you may feel recurring pain in your back. An example of this is scoliosis, a condition in which the spine curves to the side.
No matter the cause of your back pain, we’re here to provide chiropractic adjustments that will help restore your spine’s function, relieve your symptoms and improve your overall health.
Decompression Therapy for Your Back Pain
One of our treatment services for back pain for Orem and Lehi patients is decompression therapy. It involves stretching and relaxing your spine using a motorized traction table. It creates negative pressure within the spine to achieve two goals:
1. Pull bulging or herniated discs back into normal positions.
2. Promote the passage of nutrients into the discs to create a better healing environment.
Our decompression therapy is done in a controlled manner at intervals: 15 to 30 treatment sessions over a four-to-six-week period. Each session should last around 30 to 45 minutes. This therapy may also include supplementary therapies to boost the process of alleviating your back pain.
