- Herniated discs
- Muscle strains
- Muscle sprains

Pain Management for Back Pain
A chiropractor at our chiropractic practice can initiate effective pain management for back pain, including chiropractic care and lifestyle changes. Our chiropractor will first conduct a full physical exam and imaging tests to determine the root cause of your back pain. They will also ask questions about the nature of your pain, when it started, and if anything makes it better for worse. Using this information, they will determine the best pain management and treatment.
Treatment for back pain may include:
- Cold laser therapy: This is a type of treatment that is non-invasive and penetrates the skin using a Summus Horizon medical laser. Cold laser therapy or Summus Horizon medical laser targets specific injured areas of the back that may be causing pain.
- Spinal decompression: This allows the spine to be gently pulled apart, helping alleviate pain due to compressed nerves and herniated discs.
- Manual adjustments: This helps re-align the spine and helps alleviate pain due to poor posture and compressed nerves.
- Massage therapy: This helps soothe sore and tense muscles causing back pain and helps you relax and unwind.
