Address Upper Back Pain with a Chiropractor
When you’re suffering from upper back pain, it’s important to know what is causing it so it can be treated properly. At Spine Pain Center, our chiropractor will determine the cause of your upper back pain before addressing your upper back pain at its source. With offices in both North Charleston and Mount Pleasant, receiving quality chiropractic care for upper back pain has never been easier.
Causes of Upper Back Pain
There are several potential causes of upper back pain. One of the most common reasons is spinal arthritis. Of course, that’s not the only cause of upper back pain. Other common causes of upper back pain include:
- Muscle strain
- Poor posture
- Pressure from a herniated disc
- Fracture of the vertebrae
Our chiropractor will examine your musculoskeletal system to determine what is causing your upper back pain. An MRI or x-ray may be ordered to provide more insight into your condition. With this information in mind, our chiropractor will develop a comprehensive chiropractic care plan tailored to your needs and lifestyle.
How a Chiropractor Can Help
Chiropractic care is an attractive option for addressing upper back pain because it does not involve prescription medication or invasive surgery. Pain is your body’s way of signaling that it needs help. If you ignore the pain, assuming it will go away on its own, you could end up causing further damage. If you suffer from spinal arthritis, there are various ways to manage the pain. We offer spinal manipulation, massage, physical therapy, and more.
Spinal decompression can help restore proper spinal alignment. Corrective exercises can help to strengthen the spine. We also offer nutritional and lifestyle counseling to help you manage the pain and avoid further injury. We’re going to take a different approach than medical doctors because of our desire to treat the problem – not just mask the symptoms.
