Chiropractic Care for Chronic Back Pain
Back pain is a major and costly problem for many Americans. Approximately 16 million adults in the United States experience chronic back pain. This painful condition can limit your everyday activities and is the leading cause of disability worldwide. At the same time, it causes approximately 83 million work-loss days each year. If you are struggling with chronic back pain, our team at Maple Grove Family Chiropractic in Maple Grove can get you back to living a pain-free life.
Back Pain Treatment
Our team is led by Dr. Sanati-Zaker and Dr. Blomdahl. We center on back pain treatment and treating the root cause of the pain, not simply the pain itself. Some of our all-natural methods include:
Spinal manipulation and realignment: This can reduce the pressure on your central nervous system, aid in pain management, and stimulate the body’s self-healing abilities.
Soft tissue therapy: Our chiropractor will work to relax and treat your tight and sore muscles in your back using various treatment methods. For example, manual release therapy involves stretching a muscle while applying pressure. Trigger point therapy involves applying direct pressure on the tensest area of the muscle.
Exercise therapy: Our chiropractors will recommend simple exercises that you can do at home to help with your back pain and keep it from returning.
Massage therapy: We use massage therapy as a complementary service to our chiropractic care to help relieve musculoskeletal pain and relax your muscles.
Acupuncture: Acupuncture helps to lower or even eliminate back pain by stimulating the central nervous system. It also releases chemicals such as endorphins or serotonin into the patient’s muscles and spinal cord.
Posture screenings: Poor posture and slouching while sitting or standing can lead to back pain. As part of our treatment, our chiropractors can conduct screenings to correct your posture.
