Back pain is one of the most common reasons for someone to seek out chiropractic care. Most adults will suffer from pain in the upper or lower back at some point in their lives.
Our Dunedin chiropractor sees patients who have pain in their backs from many different causes. Some have acute pain that can be the result of a car accident injury or a bike spill while riding on the Pinellas Trail. With the help of a skilled chiropractor, this sort of injury can heal quickly without permanent damage.
In other cases, the pain is caused by daily physical stress in our surroundings. If your job requires many hours sitting in front of the computer, pain in your back can result. Try to get up often and stretch to mitigate the effects. You may also find yourself in pain from a mattress that does not provide the right type of support while you sleep. The ideal mattress is neither too hard nor too soft to keep your spine aligned during sleep.
Chiropractic Care Corrects Misalignments to Help with Healing
Our Dunedin chiropractor can help you eliminate back pain whether it is caused by a traumatic injury or repetitive stress. We start by assessing the cause of your pain and locating any damage.
Adjustments are one of the tools that our Dunedin chiropractor will use to help alleviate pain. These gentle spinal adjustments relieve pressure and can help correct painful subluxations. By correcting these misalignments, Dr. Raveling can eliminate your back pain for good.
Dr. Raveling uses the Gonstead Technique, a hands-on adjustment technique that is extremely effective when treating misalignments, breaking up and preventing scar tissue and helping with healing. This technique is effective against both acute injuries and chronic pain.
