Back Pain in Spanish Fork

“Back treatment” addresses a wide area, from the tendons, discs and ligaments that connect the spine to the muscles and bones of the back. Look through the following sections to see how our chiropractor can fix various forms of back pain in Spanish Fork, Utah.

Disc Bulges and Herniation

Spinal discs are located in between the boney vertebrae. When the edges become damaged, the soft internal tissue of the disc can start to distort and bulge. While not every herniated disc can be felt, sometimes the position of the malformation can put pressure on the nerve. Our chiropractor can identify if your back pain is caused by herniation and recommend treatment to prevent damage and relieve pain.

Subluxations

When the vertebrae of the spine move out of position, it is call subluxation. This can interfere with normal movement and cause discomfort. This is sometimes caused by repeated physical stress, accident or even various toxins within the body. While many times this condition can be overlooked, our chiropractor can identify and treat subluxation issues.

Muscular Sprains and Tendon or Ligament Strains

Back sprains, just like sprains in other areas of the body, occur when we overstretch or put strain on the muscles. Swelling, bruising or misalignment can occur. Visiting our chiropractor can relieve these symptoms and help the sprain heal properly.

Stress and Back Pain

Chronic strain and stress can cause continuous, long-lasting discomfort. If you suffer from chronic back pain or hypertension, plan an appointment today. Our office’s chiropractor can identify the “trigger points” (painful areas) and decrease the release of stress hormones.

Other Issues That Cause Back Pain

Various diseases and chronic conditions can cause back pain. Patients may experience back pain if they suffer from arthritis, kidney stones, obesity or a urinary tract infection. However, if a patient suffers from any of these conditions, it is important for patients to first be diagnosed by their physician or specialist.
