Advanced Treatment for Neck and Back Pain

Over 80% of Canadian adults suffer from back and neck pain. 8 in 10 Canadians complain of some type of back pain that interferes with their daily lives. These can be caused by an injury, poor posture or stress, or they could be symptoms of something more serious. Transform Chiropractic offers a variety of chiropractic adjustment options for back pain.

Back pain may be sudden, sharp or constant. If it isn't too severe, it will go away by itself. If it lasts for more than two months, it is time to see a doctor. You can either get prescription pain pills or over-the-counter drugs. It doesn't cure the pain, but it suppresses it. Low back pain, which is located in the lumbar spine, is the most common complaint. Neck pain is equally common, but they are more often the result of an underlying condition than the neck.

Before you decide on a treatment for your back or neck pain, ask yourself these questions:

  • Muscle spasms and cramps
  • Stiffness in gait
  • A feeling of weakness in the leg, pain or tingling sensation
  • Pain in the neck, shoulder, or arms
  • Headaches
  • It is difficult to move your neck
  • Slower limb reflexes, numbness
  • Leg muscles becoming weaker

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you should consult an expert who will not only give you pain medication but also guide you through the healing process with advanced therapy options. Functional chiropractic is the best option for back and neck pain. The entire nervous system is examined and analyzed in order to treat it from the spine central.

Before you decide to treat your back pain, take a look at the possible causes.

  • Back strain or mechanical pain
  • Compressive pain is basically undue pressure on the spine cord or irritation to the nerves that go from it.
  • They can be injury-based or degenerative.

Causes of neck pain

  • Injuries that cause wear and tear to the intervertebral disk
  • Stress
  • Injury or illness can cause cervical spine degeneration
  • Viral infections

What should you do if your neck hurts?

Consult a qualified chiropractor in Toronto if your neck pain is accompanied with pain down your arm into the hand, tingling, numbness in your arm or hand, and/or weakness. This could be a sign of a bulging or herniated cervical disc. Advanced diagnostic imaging may be required before any treatment can begin.
