Mechanical Low Back Pain

Mechanical pain is movement-related pain

Injuries that relate to the articulation and movement of the spinal motion segments, including the vertebrae, discs, joints, ligaments and muscles are among the most common, and most painful types of injuries in human existence. Almost every motion of the upper body involves the spine in some capacity, and the muscles which support the spine are used to initiate movements and transfer forces across the body. When something goes wrong in this process, we are left with mechanical pain, also known as back strain. Back strain is made all the worse by the fact that often, any proceeding movements will exacerbate the problem. 

Chiropractic is tailor-made for mechanical pain

Far too many people wait until debilitating pain is detracting from their lifestyle or causing them to miss work before they seek treatment. The problem with this is that the body is amazingly adaptive: your body has learned that whatever position is causing your pain is the new normal and your muscles and ligaments change in support of this. The result after long periods of time is abnormal curvature of the spine, reduced range of motion and debilitating spinal conditions. Chiropractic is a form of medicine that seeks to understand that complexities of the moving parts in the spine; following this theory, one part of the system moving out of position affects the entirety of that system. As the everyday demands of life cause wear and tear on the spine, we need regular maintenance to ensure that this wear and tear does not compound upon itself. 

Spinal motion and spinal dysfunction are inextricably linked. 

Our treatment seeks to correct misalignment and address mechanical issues that are preventing your spine from realizing a full range of motion. Our modalities are non-invasive and non-pharmaceutical, and we utilize high-velocity, low-intensity adjustments to the spine to realign the spine and restore range of motion. If you are interested in addressing the mechanical dysfunction which is causing your back pain, give our office a call to schedule an appointment today.
