Back Pain RELIEF
Holistic, non-invasive relief from mid, lower, & upper back pain
Back pain can make it impossible to enjoy school, work, and everyday life. Back pain is one of the top causes of disability and the leading cause of missed workdays in the country. No matter what factors contribute to your back pain, chiropractic care combined with massage therapy is the perfect way to target and treat back pain effectively.
At Columbia Gorge Chiropractic, we focus on stressed joints in your spine using proven techniques that ease immediate pain and increase mobility. When you schedule your initial consultation, one of our chiropractors will start with a complete examination of your back to diagnose mobility issues, joint pain, possible disc herniations, and more.
Next, you will start chiropractic treatments to correct injuries and tender areas of your body. As part of your custom treatment plan, we incorporate in-house massage therapy and at-home exercises to help you recover and heal. Our comprehensive approach allows us to tailor your treatment for the smoothest possible recovery.
As you move through your treatment, you will work on maintaining the strength, mobility, and relief you have gained. As you continue on your journey of long-term recovery, we will work with you on approaches that minimize the chance of your injury returning or secondary injuries presenting themselves.
Mid Back pain
Mid back pain doesn’t have to slow you down
Your mid back plays an important role in your mobility. It also houses several organs and joints that are crucial for movement, like thoracic vertebrae, thoracic facet joints, thoracic spinal musculature, and spinal nerves. When you experience pain or discomfort in your mid back, it can be especially difficult to perform everyday activities.
Pain in your mid back results from one or more of the following factors:
- Poor posture & body mechanics
- Weak spinal musculature
- Improper firing patterns of spinal musculature
- Faulty spinal biomechanics
- A history of work or play activities that generate high levels of spinal stress
For over a century, chiropractic medicine has been a useful and effective tool for treating mid back pain. Chiropractic treatment is always non-invasive and drug-free. It is considered to be one of the best and most natural alternatives to traditional pain management. Chiropractic treats the source of pain, rather than disguising it.
Chiropractic spinal adjustments are the primary treatment for mid back pain. These adjustments are gentle and both manually and mechanically applied to your spinal column. These adjustments decrease pain, improve range of motion, diminish muscle spasms, and reduce the risk of further injury.
In addition to your chiropractic and massage therapy treatments for mid back pain, we also train you on proper posture and lifting techniques. We’ll teach you how to avoid or tolerate long periods of sitting, how to tolerate repetitive movements, and other helpful techniques that minimize pain and stress.
