Your back is hurting, and you are wondering when you should call the chiropractor. The answer to that question is right now. Chiropractors can help relieve back pain, and this has been supported by years of hard science and double-blind research.
Back pain can be debilitating, and it can seriously affect not just your posture and your activities, but your quality of life. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, you may need to visit a chiropractor for back pain.
You Have Recently Been Injured
If you have been in an accident or suffered a fall, it is important to seek chiropractic care. A chiropractor can reduce the impact of whiplash, muscle sprains, and spinal cord compression.
Your Back Pain Is Chronic
When back pain is not going away, it is time to see a chiropractor. Chronic back pain can be caused by several things, including poor posture, degenerative disc disease, and spinal stenosis. A chiropractor will be able to help you find relief from chronic back pain and improve your quality of life.
Your Range of Motion Is Limited
Limited range of motion can be a sign of back problems. If you experience difficulty bending, reaching, or twisting, it is time to see a chiropractor. Chiropractors can help improve blood flow, reduce muscle tension, and increase your range of motion to avoid further injury.
Back Pain is Impacting Your Life
When your back hurts, muscles can cramp causing nerve pain, which makes everything worse. Never delay seeing your chiropractor if your back hurts. Go right away.
