It's hard to find someone who hasn't experienced back pain and with good reason. Current estimates are that at least 80% of all Americans will suffer from this symptom at some point in their lives. It's no surprise then that back pain is the second most common reason to visit a doctor, preceded only by the cold and common flu.
Traditional medical treatment for back pain typically consists of pain medications, advice to stay active and too often surgery. Unfortunately, pain medications only offer temporary relief and back surgery too often fails, leaving a patient with as much pain, or more pain, than they had before surgery.
Chiropractic care offers hope, and by getting to the root cause of back pain often offers patients lasting relief from back pain. Multiple medical studies have demonstrated that chiropractic care is a safe, effective way to alleviate a number of conditions causing back pain such as herniated discs, arthritis, auto injuries and more. (Learn more about the causes of back pain here.) In fact, research suggests that chiropractic care is more effective than epidural steroid injections and some anti-inflammatory medications for treating lower back pain.
Dr. Brad Dahlager is a back pain specialist and chiropractor offering effective relief of back pain for patients in Noblesville, IN as well as Fishers, Westfield, Carmel and the rest of Hamilton County.
How Can Your Noblesville Chiropractor Relieve Back Pain?
As a back pain specialist, Dr. Dahlager will conduct a thorough chiropractic, orthopedic, physical, and neurological evaluation to understand the factors that are contributing to your lower back pain. He'll then work with you to address the varied causes with a multifaceted treatment approach that includes chiropractic adjustments, rehabilitative exercises, nutritional counseling, custom foot orthotics, and more.
Chiropractic adjustments ease pressure on pinched or choked nerves, facilitate blood flow to the injured area, trigger the release of anti-inflammatory chemicals and correct the spinal misalignments that can cause back pain. Dr. Dahlager will also provide you with rehabilitative exercises to strengthen and stretch your muscles to restore muscle function, promote better mobility and reduce your risk of recurrence. Custom foot orthotics can also help correct gait or posture issues that may be contributing to back pain.
