Get Back Pain Relief From Our St. Petersburg, FL Chiropractor
There are 33 vertebrae that form the spinal column, and if a misalignment or injury impinges the proper function of even one vertebra, you could suffer from upper, middle or lower back pain. Regardless of the location of your back or neck pain, it can affect your ability to perform routine daily tasks and enjoy recreational activities. Dr. Colby Staubs, our St. Petersburg, FL chiropractor can help get you back on your feet with natural chiropractic methods to effectively relieve your pain.
Common Causes and Symptoms of Back Pain
Back pain can be sourced from poor posture, sleeping in a bad position, heavy lifting, repetitious motions at work, herniated discs, a sudden jolt or just performing everyday tasks. However, most back injuries that we see at St. Petersburg Chiropractic Injury + Rehab are the result of sports injuries, occupational incidents, and auto accident injuries. Symptoms of neck injuries include whiplash, stiffness, loss of motion and can radiate into shoulder pain if left untreated. Depending on the cause of your injury back pain symptoms can present themselves as:
- Dull aches and pains.
- Stinging or burning pain that can radiate into the legs and feet causing a condition known as sciatica.
- Pain that is exacerbated after prolonged periods of standing or sitting.
- One leg becoming shorter than the other, making each step a painful one.
- Complications and pain when standing, walking, or changing postural positions.
- Muscle tightness and spasms in the neck, back, or pelvic region.
Chiropractic Solutions for Back Pain in St. Petersburg, FL
The most common course of treatment we recommend as a starting point for our patients include chiropractic adjustments. These are gentle spinal manipulations that only take a minute or two for our FL chiropractor to perform. This is a painless treatment that helps realign the spinal vertebrae to provide lasting relief from your discomfort. A few other methods we employ include:
Spinal Decompression Therapy: To relieve back pain, particularly lower back pain, we use this form of flexion distraction therapy to help force herniated discs back into their proper position. However, we may also utilize spinal decompression to tackle other vertebral issues.
Cold Laser Therapy: This painless treatment method involves the use of a hand held device that emits light wave frequencies that can penetrate beneath several layers of the skin beyond the epidermis. These light frequencies promote faster healing and pain relief.
Physical Rehabilitation/Corrective Exercises: These methods are custom designed to treat and heal your specific injuries and physical issues. We can help re-train and strengthen associated muscles to help you prevent future injuries and even excel beyond the realms of previous bodily performance.
Massage Therapy: Massage is an ideal complement to chiropractic care, and it helps relieve muscle pain, swelling, and tightness while increasing blood circulation and an overall feeling of relaxation.
