Are you tired of feeling tight or sore in your back? Do symptoms of upper back pain, lower back pain, or sciatica keep you from living a healthy, happy life? Dr. Gallagher, our Tulsa chiropractor at Gallagher Wellness Centre, can treat your back pain naturally using a whole person approach.
Back pain may manifest with many symptoms: Upper back pain, lower back pain, sciatic nerve pain, muscle stiffness, and more. The main symptoms of back pain consist of pain, tension, muscle spasms, and weakness. When you feel pain, it is your body telling you something is wrong and it's time to seek chiropractic treatment.
While a conventional approach for back pain relief consists of resting, icing, and taking medication, we know this approach does not really do anything to resolve the pain. You must understand what is causing your back pain, so you can avoid triggers.
Back pain has many causes. You might develop pain after an injury such as an auto accident or a bad fall. Bones, joints, ligaments, and muscles can all be affected by these injuries.
Chronic back pain can be caused by a spinal health condition. Without treating this underlying condition, pain will remain. Spinal conditions that could cause chronic back pain include spinal stenosis, osteoarthritis, slipped or herniated discs, or muscle strain related to poor posture, spinal misalignment, or injury. Sciatica pain occurs when the sciatic nerve is compressed, and sends pain down your legs, buttocks, thighs, and hips.
To effectively treat your back pain, we will give you a thorough examination. This helps us uncover the true cause of your pain so we can treat it.
Our chiropractor in Tulsa understands that back pain, migraines, sciatica, dizziness, and other ailments are simply just the symptom of the more serious condition, the subluxation – nerve pressure inhibiting your nervous system from communicating properly, thus it creates a protective mechanism to guard the body from further damage or harm. These symptoms bring attention to your body’s inability to self-regulate and self-heal. This is where the majority of Americans will take a pill for the symptom only to suppress the problem to worsen in the future.
Instead, Dr. Gallagher looks to the cause, the subluxation, to reduce and correct the interference allowing the body to properly self-regulate and self-heal as it was designed to perform. Once reduced, ongoing adjustments on a Wellness Schedule of 2-3x’s per month keep the body “In Check” to further one’s Wellness Performance of not “Just Out of Pain” but instead “Enjoying Life to Its Fullest!”
