Many people dismiss chiropractic as being something only for back pain, but chiropractic treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of physical issues, such as migraines and headaches, chronic pain, carpal tunnel, pain due to injury or muscle strain, and much more.

Low Back Pain

The chiropractic approach to treating low back pain is to find the source of the back pain and correct it. Correcting the problem and not just treating the symptom; makes sure that the body can heal naturally. Low back pain often responds remarkably to the correction of misaligned vertebral position and the restoration of normal motion.

Chiropractic care uses adjustments or spinal manipulations to precisely apply a gentle force to the vertebrae that is out of position. Gradually, normal range of motion, position and function of the joint is restored.

Common Causes of Low Back Pain in Peoria
A common cause of low back pain can be disc problems, the disc is a fibrous cushion between each vertebra that acts as a shock absorber. A bulging, slipped, herniated, or ruptured disc can pinch and irritate the nerves that travel from the spinal cord. Leg pain, numbness, tingling or weakness in the legs are common symptoms of disc irritation. Low back problems are common in those with jobs that include heavy lifting, long periods of sitting, standing repeated bending. Also common in people who are in poor physical condition. Long periods of inactivity or emotional stress can make symptoms worse trigger relapses.

Exercises, hot or cold compresses, and other lifestyle changes may be recommended to compliment your adjustments.

Back pain should be treated within the first month of the onset of the pain. Waiting until the pain is unbearable is not only unhealthy but may end up costing more time, stress, and money in the long run. Dr. Tuttle is an expert at treating these conditions and can help you get back to your normal self.
