Chiropractic adjustments for Back Pain

Do you need help with back pain or sciatica?

We understand how debilitating this condition can be, and are dedicated to helping you recover naturally.

Are you experiencing the following:

  • Muscle tension in your shoulder blades?
  • Restricted and painful movement?
  • Difficulty bending forwards or backward?
  • Sciatic pain down your legs?
  • Pain when breathing in deeply?
  • Slouched posture?
  • Pain getting in and out of bed?
  • Muscle spasms?

Back pain and sciatica are some of the most common complaints we see at Cooper Chiropractic. An estimated 70%-90% of the population will experience at least one episode of severe back pain during their lives.

Anyone who has suffered from these conditions is fully aware of how frustrating and debilitating it can be. Back pain and sciatica can significantly impact your daily life, affecting your work, sleep, leisure, and simple everyday activities.

When it comes to back pain, there are a number of potential differential diagnoses, including sciatica (numbness, tingling, and shooting pain), facet syndrome, muscle sprains, joint sprains, disc bulges and many more. Our first priority is to identify correctly what type of back pain you are experiencing.

Common Causes:

  • Poor posture/spinal alignment
  • Inactivity/sedentary lifestyle
  • Prolonged sitting
  • Trauma
  • Repetitive poor movement
  • Poor lifting technique
  • Sports injuries
  • Underlying disease or pathology (rare)

Treating Back Pain and Sciatica:

At Cooper Chiropractic, we take a holistic approach to treating conditions of the spine. We focus on the entire neuromusculoskeletal system, rather than simply the injury site. This includes the spine as a whole, extremity joints (hip, knee, etc), muscles, ligaments, tendons, and the nervous system.

The first step in helping you manage your problem is to make an accurate diagnosis. We achieve this with a comprehensive clinical history and a thorough physical examination, which includes neurological, orthopedic, and musculoskeletal tests, and if needed, further diagnostic investigations such as X-Rays.

Once we have gathered all the information required to make an accurate diagnosis, we will explain our findings to you, then tailor a treatment plan specific to your condition and goals. Because our team is dedicated to helping you manage your pain and reach your goals, if at any stage we determine that you would benefit more from another provider, we will refer you to someone who is best suited to your particular condition.

Prevention and Education:

To help you achieve the optimal benefits from chiropractic care, our team will prescribe specific rehabilitation exercises just for you, offer sound ergonomic advice for your work or home environment, and provide the necessary tools to prevent future injuries.
