It aches, cracks, and makes bending over difficult. If your back hurts, you’re not alone—according to the American Chiropractic Association, more than 31 million Americans have experienced lower back pain. If your body is hurting, it’s time to call Dr. Nancy Swenson D.C. and her team of experts at Back to Life Chiropractic in Denver, CO.
Recent medical studies have shown that chiropractic adjustments are an effective, non-surgical way to relieve lower back pain. But before you receive any treatment, it’s important to discuss your pain with a qualified chiropractor. Dr. Swenson has compiled a short list of questions new patients should ask before receiving adjustments:
- How Do Spinal Adjustments Work? During an adjustment, a chiropractor uses their hands or a small instrument to manually manipulate the vertebrae. Applying a controlled, sudden force can put out-of-place joints back where they belong and align the spine, reducing problems like neck and lower back pain.
- How Long Will The Treatment Last? This varies, as each patient’s body is different. Two or three appointments might be appropriate for one person, while another patient might need to see a chiropractor for several months. Be wary of chiropractic doctors who set up a long line of appointments. It could mean they’re more interested in making money than helping you heal.
- How Can I Get The Best Results? Healing your lower back pain can take some time, and it’s important to have a treatment plan tailored to your needs. It’s not just about showing up to an appointment; make sure your chiropractor is ready to help you make lifestyle changes to avoid lower back pain in the future.
