Portland Back Pain Treatment
Portland back pain treatment is offered through Kelsall Chiropractic Clinic. Our back is truly the workhorse of the body, performing thousands of muscle movements every day to support your activities. When you are experiencing back pain, or your back completely gives out, you fully understand how important a strong back is for your health. As you age, you can throw out your back with the slightest of twists, such as reaching for something next to you.
When left untreated, back pain will reoccur and can lead to spinal cord compression and vertebrae fusing together. To keep your back healthy, in most cases, it is crucial that you restore mobility to the back joints that are being restricted by tissue injury. Treatment of the initial injury followed by monthly adjustments are crucial steps to getting your back fully healthy again.
The professionals at Kelsall Chiropractic Clinic understand how to carefully provide proper treatment for those experiencing Portland back pain by helping you strengthen the back muscles to prevent future injury, and create a maintenance plan that will keep you one step ahead of back issues that could get worse and lead to chronic pain. For patients with new back pain, ice, cold laser therapy, ultrasound, massage, and gentle spinal adjustments can help reduce inflammation and the acute pain. Once the injury is on a path to healing, treatments including deep tissue massage and heat on the affected area followed by chiropractic adjustments. At this time, therapeutic exercises are then layered on as part of the treatment plan to help you strengthen your back and prevent re-injury.
For new patients with long-term back issues, Dr. Kelsall may need an X-ray of the affected areas to create the best treatment plan for your particular situation. Treatment for long-term back injuries may include heat, deep tissue massage or Graston Technique®, gentle spinal manipulation, and injury specific exercise. Some patients do well using Intelliskin- a posture-correction shirt for improving bad posture and reducing back pain.
