The Problems Behind Your Back Pain

We treat many patients for their back pain, and we strive to help people prevent it from coming back in the future once it’s gone. The key is to understand how the pain started in the first place. If we know why you hurt, we can work to eliminate the cause. In the meantime, we help you find pain relief and recovery through chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy and other natural techniques that encourage the body to heal itself naturally.

Reasons and Rehabilitation for Back Pain

From your initial examination and through the rehabilitation phase of your treatment with Dr. Raveling, we take a close look at the factors causing your back pain. These are the three major ones we see in patients:

Poor Posture Habits—Slouching, slumping and even sleeping on the wrong mattress can wreak havoc on your spinal alignment over the years. As vertebrae slowly move out of alignment, nerves and discs can be impaired or damaged, causing backaches and other symptoms. Chiropractic adjustments restore correct spinal alignment, and we teach you how to maintain correct alignment throughout your life.

Injury—Many backaches start when you lift something the wrong way, or when you are spending several hours a day in an un-ergonomically designed workspace. The injury may be sudden, or it may develop slowly as you continue to move in ways that cause stress to your spine. Spinal adjustments, massage therapy and several other physiotherapy techniques can help relieve these injury pains. At the same time, we teach our patients exercises and stretches to help them regain strength and range of motion.

Lifestyle—Poor nutrition, poor sleep habits, stress and not getting enough exercise can also damage your back. Our goal is to help patients fuel their backache recovery with nourishing foods, help them establish healthy sleep patterns and develop exercise plans that bolster their backs against future pain and injury.
