If you are one of the millions of Americans who suffer from daily back pain, we can help you. Many people seek back pain treatment from doctors who prescribe addictive pain medications, imaging and little help. If you are looking for a more holistic practice then look no further. Dr. Gilmore will sit down with you and examine your xrays and discuss a back pain treatment plan that will work for your unique situation.

Types of Back Pain We Treat

  • Flexion Dominant Back Pain – A type of back pain described as an injury to the disc.
  • Extension Dominant Back Pain – A pain that is located at the joints at the back of the spine called the Z-joints.
  • Neurogenic Claudication– This type of pain typically affects people over 60 years of age. It’s caused by the nerves being compressed when you stand and walk.
  • Inflammatory Back Pain- This is less common and caused by excessive inflammation in the spinal joints.

During Your Visit

Not only will we examine your body but also ask you questions about situations that could be the cause. There are many ways that a chiropractor can relieve back pain. During your first appointment, we will ask you about your medical history and current symptoms. We will do a physical exam including ordering tests, such as X-rays, if necessary. Based on the results of those tests we will work with you to create a back pain treatment plan.

Techniques we use:

  • Manual Therapies – These include trigger point therapy, myofascial release, and tissue massage. These therapies release tension in the muscles, ligaments, and tendons around the spine.
  • Rehabilitative Exercise – We may give you “homework” of rehabilitative exercises. This helps patients strengthen the muscles around their spine and prevent further injury and relieve pain.
  • Spinal Manipulation-This is a hands-on treatment that involves moving, massaging, and applying pressure to the spine and joints. This can improve your range of motion and target the source of your pain.

If you suffer from back pain, don’t keep putting it off. Back pain rarely gets better without treatment. Call us and schedule an appointment today.
