Treatment for back pain helps ease pain from problems associated with strained ligaments and muscles, herniated discs, pinched nerves, and vertebrae injuries. Our chiropractor can help ease your back pain and create a customized treatment plan that is non-invasive and does not involve medication. Dr. Burg at Active Wellness Chiropractic Center provides quality chiropractic care for our patients in Oakland and Berkeley, CA.
Back Pain Treatment
When over-the-counter medications are insufficient for your back pain, it is time to seek chiropractic care. In fact, many patients are trying to avoid having to rely on medication for their back pain relief. Chiropractic care addresses the source of the back pain to provide relief and support the healing process. Your customized treatment plan will likely involve a combination of chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, acupuncture, and physical therapy.
At-Home Back Pain Treatment
Over-the-counter pain medications can provide temporary relief for your back pain but can cause ulcers, liver damage, and kidney problems when taken for prolonged periods. Furthermore, topical rubs and ointments, including gels, lotions, creams, patches, and sprays, can reduce your back pain temporarily. Muscle relaxants can help reduce spasms that are often experienced with back pain. Check with our chiropractor for suggested at-home back pain treatments.
Alternatives to Surgery and Opioids
Chiropractic care is a non-invasive, non-addictive alternative to what traditional medicine may recommend for back pain. Seeing a chiropractor can provide effective options to treating your back pain that does not involve using opioids or other addictive medications. Furthermore, chiropractic care has helped many patients avoid surgery to resolve their back pain.
