Back Pain in Wilmington

Trauma, disease and misalignments are all causes of back pain. The back is a very strong foundation that is able to protect the body from damage along with improving and helping motion, flexibility, and stability. Inflamed muscles, bones and ligaments can lead to back pain. In some cases an auto accident is the cause for their back pain whereas others play sports or have bad habits that lead to pain. With all these causes it can be hard to pinpoint the exact reason for your back pain.

There are also alternative ways that back pain can develop that include arthritis, issues with digestion and poor health. Due to the many possible causes, experience is key in solving the issue. Our chiropractic team in Wilmington is trained and experienced to assist you in your treatment. Reese Family Chiropractic is capable of diagnosing your condition and find the specific reason you are experiencing pain in order to correct your condition which allows you to get back to your pain-free life.

Disc Bulges or Herniations

A bulging disc or herniation are capable of causing back pain. It is essential to know that not all bulging discs and herniations are the cause of back pain. Studies showcase how more than a third of people have a bulging disc but most of them report no pain. The ones that do feel pain will experience a lot of discomfort.

The type of herniation and location is the main factor in determining the severity of the pain. IF the disc is pushing into a nerve, people can experience numbness and tingling in their extremities. The pain is usually a stabbing and quick sensation. A disc herniation can be described as a donut filled with jelly. When the donut deteriorates the jelly will leak out. This can happen from age and overuse. It is dependent on the extent of your injury but the effects are able to be alleviated in many cases. Chiropractic care is a great option in making your pain go away.

Subluxations

Subluxations cause a lot of people back pain without them realizing what the pain is coming from. A subluxation refers to a vertebrae that is not aligned in the spine properly. It can affect the movement of the person living with the condition. This waterfall effect starts to affect posture and more movements of the body and also allowing a person to have less strength in fighting diseases. There is an unlimited amount of causes for a subluxation.

An impact from a blunt force, bad nutrition, bad sleeping habits are all possible causes for this condition. Many people are unaware that nutrition can have an effect on the spine but are aware it can make your hair fall out or discolor your nails. It can be very difficult to create a timeline for treating a subluxation but our team at Reese Family Chiropractic of Wilmington is experienced in working with patients with subluxations and have proven success in the past in treating their pain.

Tendon or Ligament Strains & Muscular Sprains

A sprain or strain can occur to anyone but it is common in individuals doing tasks their body is not accustomed to. For example, if a person that hasn’t even ran in months decided to sprint a mile, they would be at a high risk to a strain or sprain due to their lack of training. Sprains are small or complete tears in ligaments from pushing the ligament past its limits. Strains can occur on a muscle after picking up an object that is too heavy or heavier than one is used to. These injuries happen especially when an individual is not using proper form. Chiropractic care can help both strains and sprains as in most cases they originate from the spinal area. Our team is prepared to offer you the care you need in order to get back to your healthy self.

Back Pain & Stress

People that experience higher levels of stress generally have a different physical makeup compared to people that are not used to dealing with stress. The body releases different hormones for people that are dealing with high levels of stress. An increased heart rate, increased blood pressure and cortisol release are a few of the body’s responses to stress. These responses are usually a short burst but for people that deal with stress more often, it can cause health issues. Heart disease, back pain and obesity can result from stress. In many cases stress is located at “trigger points” in the back. Your chiropractic team at Reese Family Chiropractic of Wilmington has been successful in helping correct patients backs at these trigger points.

When a chiropractor creates a treatment plan for an issue they make sure to treat the source of the problem and do not solely treat the symptoms. Our team in Wilmington can help you with your back pain using our proven methods! Please don’t hesitate to contact us, our staff at Reese Family Chiropractic is happy to help!
