Think about this…have you ever heard of someone who didn’t have a sore back? And as people get older, doesn’t it always seem like backs are the first to go? It certainly doesn’t help that the world seems to be doing everything it can to exacerbate the problem…bad chairs, unsupportive couches, jobs that cause us to sit down for too much of the day…all of these come together to put more and more pressure on our overworked spine. When you’re looking for relief, try our chiropractic care in New Port Richey, FL.
And it can be hard to diagnose. Is it just too much exertion over the weekend, or a symptom of an ergonomically incorrect chair at work? Maybe your hats are too heavy (solution: stop wearing heavy hats). Seriously, though, the causes of lower back pain can be numerous, so it’s best to start with a chiropractor who can properly diagnose and treat it.
After your initial consultation to determine how long you’ve been experiencing the pain and how it’s affecting your life, we may take x-rays to determine if your severe lower back pain is muscular of spinal. Luckily, you’re in the right place to treat both.
If It’s Spinal: We are here to treat any misalignment of the spine in order to alleviate pain and encourage better health. With years of schooling and practice, we can identify the source of the pain and treat it according with spinal manipulations.
If It’s Muscular: Massages aren’t just a way to relax your entire body and mind. The proper massage can target specific muscle fibers and cause them to release the tension. This not only reduces pain from that specific spot but also the tissues that the nerves are attached to. This practice is called Trigger Point Therapy.
It’s important to get your problems properly diagnosed so that you start the road to healing. Whether you need therapeutic massage or chiropractic care in New Port Richey, Florida or Trinity, Florida, give us call today.
