Back Pain Treatments

If you live with back pain in the area near Redding, Shasta Lake, or Anderson, CA, Dr. Gary Richardson and the team at Chiropractic Advantage can help you achieve relief.

What Causes Back Pain?

Back pain can come from a wide range of issues, but some of the most common include the following:

Spinal Misalignment

The spinal column can sometimes be knocked out of alignment. This can put undue stress on muscles, joints, and other areas of the back, which causes pain and tension.

Sprains and Strains

When you lift something too heavy or in an awkward way, it can lead to sprains and strains in the muscles and ligaments. In addition to pain, sprains and strains can lead to swelling and bruising.

Disc Problems

The spine has cushions called discs that sit between the vertebrae. Sometimes, due to an injury or general wear and tear, parts of those discs can be pushed out and put pressure on the nerves. This causes pain, weakness, and numbness in the impacted area as well as the arms and legs.

How Chiropractic Adjustments Can Help

Chiropractic adjustments for back pain in Redding, Shasta Lake, or Anderson, CA are treatments during which Dr. Richardson applies quick, controlled thrusts to targeted areas. These thrusts help the patient’s back pain in several different ways.

The first is that they help to properly realign the spine. Any misaligned vertebrae are mobilized back into place, which helps to take unnecessary stress off of the muscles and joints.

If any discs have slipped or ruptured, chiropractic adjustments help move them back into place, as well. The disc material is then off of the nerves, relieving any associated pain, tingling, and weakness.

Additionally, chiropractic adjustments help increase blood flow throughout the body, including the impacted area. This improved blood flow encourages healing of the muscles, nerves, and joints, and helps to reduce pain and inflammation.

If back pain is controlling your life in Redding, Shasta Lake, or Anderson, CA, Dr. Richardson of Chiropractic Advantage can help you take that control back. Call (530) 222-3727 to make an appointment today.
