Back Pain Treatment in O’Fallon

man back spinePain of any kind is a signal that something is wrong. Some people mask their symptoms with a pain reliever and ignore the message. That approach is like removing the battery to quiet a smoke detector!

At Agan Chiropractic, we are here to help you get to the root cause of your pain, and develop a care plan that brings you out of dis-ease and into wellness. Here’s how we do it!

Two Common Causes of Back Discomfort

The nerve-rich facet joints on the back side of each spinal bone are a common cause of back pain. The pain can be a sign these interlocking “fingers” aren’t moving right.

The discs between spinal bones can be involved, too. Trauma can cause the soft, pulpy material in the middle to bulge, putting pressure on nearby nerves.

Your Choices

We’ve helped many people with safe and natural chiropractic care. However, there are other choices you can make:

  • Ignore it (Spinal problems may worsen.)
  • Bed rest (May prolong the problem.)
  • Therapy (Stresses malfunctioning joints.)
  • Medicine (Numbs the body.)
  • Surgery (The irreversible last resort.)

The Chiropractic Approach

Specific chiropractic adjustments can help improve spinal function. By restoring the way your spine works, discs and soft tissues may heal, nerve involvement may be reduced, discomfort can ease and better stability can return. Naturally, we think chiropractic is the best choice for your back pain!

Frequently Asked Questions

Is it normal to experience back discomfort?

Experiencing pain, including back discomfort, is not considered normal. Pain is a signal from your body that something is not right. It indicates that a limit has been reached or a problem has developed. While discomfort may go away on its own over time, it’s important to address the underlying issue to prevent it from worsening and becoming more difficult and costly to resolve.

What alternatives are there to muscle relaxers?

At Agan Chiropractic, we do not dispense drugs, including muscle relaxers. Instead, we rely on natural methods to alleviate pain. One effective approach is the application of ice, which can have an analgesic effect without the unwanted side effects associated with certain pain medications. In addition, many of our patients under regular chiropractic care experience reduced pain.

How does chiropractic care work?

Chiropractic is based on the understanding that you are a self-healing, self-regulating organism controlled by your nervous system. By removing interference from the nervous system through chiropractic adjustments, we help restore optimal function to your body. This allows you to experience improved health and well-being.
