Upper Back Pain Due to Poor Posture
If our comprehensive examination shows that your upper back pain is being caused by poor posture, we can make the proper adjustments to your spine to relieve pain and allow muscles to heal. We can also educate you on proper posture for your daily routine and exercises that will help to keep your posture correct.
Upper Back Pain Treatment Due to an Injury
An injury can have a debilitating effect on your life, making it hard to carry out daily activities and to make a living. A chiropractor can help to alleviate the pain you are experiencing and help to increase your mobility after an accident. In addition, a chiropractor can help support your body's natural healing process.
Before a chiropractor provides treatment for someone's back, a comprehensive examination is first performed. Dislocated vertebrae, herniated discs, injured muscles, and inflammation can all be discovered and factored in to a comprehensive treatment program.
A misaligned vertebra in your upper spine can put pressure on a nerve as well as surrounding muscles. A chiropractor can gently work dislocated vertebrae back into place, alleviating this pressure. Targeted exercises will strengthen the surrounding muscles and connective tissues.
A herniated disc can also cause pain by pushing against a nerve. The disc will be worked back into a more normal position away from nerves. Tight and tense muscles can be relaxed by using targeted massage and physical therapies as well as electrical muscle stimulation. These techniques stimulate blood flow that help to support the body's healing process.
Injuries often cause inflammation that contributes to nerve pain, stiffness, and immobility. Massage and ultrasound therapies are effective treatments to reduce inflammation and stimulate blood flow to injured areas.
