Back Pain Treatments

At Cheatwood Chiropractic in Brandon, FL, Dr. Janice Cheatwood provides a variety of chiropractic services. This includes treatment for any sort of back pain at any level of severity. Back pain is one of the most common conditions treated at Cheatwood Chiropractic. Treatment varies depending on your symptoms and the severity, though the recommended treatment is often chiropractic adjustments. Other treatments, like massage or therapeutic exercises, may also be utilized

The most common symptoms associated with  back pain are muscle aches, pain that radiates  into the hips or legs, and shooting or stabbing pains. These symptoms result from a variety of conditions. As we age, our spine naturally deteriorates since we use our spine every single day. Spinal misalignments, known as subluxations, are also at fault. Your spine is made up of vertebrae. A subluxation is when a vertebra moves out-of-place. This irritates the nerves, which creates the pain you’re experiencing.

There are two forms of back pain treated at Cheatwood Chiropractic: acute pain and chronic pain. Acute back pain comes on suddenly and can last from anywhere between a few days to a few weeks. Chronic back pain is more serious and can indicate a major problem. Back pain is classified as chronic when it lasts at least three months.

At your consultation with Dr. Cheatwood, she performs a physical examination. This identifies the areas of the spine that are causing pain. Imaging technology, like x-rays, can also be used. The appropriate treatment is consequentially offered. Spinal manipulation is fast and relatively painless. Using either her hands or special tools, the displaced vertebra  is adjusted which removes the irritation, inflammation and pain.

Are you suffering from acute or chronic back pain? Contact Dr. Cheatwood at Cheatwood Chiropractic, located in Brandon, FL, today. She will get you started on a treatment plan unique to your problem. You’ll be feeling like yourself in no time at all so that you can get back to the daily grind or the activities you love to do.

Spinal Conditions That Cause Pain

According to the NIH, about 80% of the population will experience some form of lower back pain in the form of burning sensations, shooting pains, and dull aches. While many people experience chronic back pain as a result of age-related wear and tear, it may also be generated by a previous injury or medical condition. Other conditions/disorders that a chiropractor can treat include -

  • Facet Joint Syndrome refers to a condition in which the lubrication between the vertebrae of the spine erodes. The result is painful movements, as this condition can create bone-on-bone friction.
  • Pinched Nerves – a condition or injury that affects your nerves or nervous system and can cause extreme pain.  
  • Disc Issues  - the discs that are located between each vertebra can herniate, tear, or deteriorate with time (i.e., degenerative disc disorder) or injury.
  • Spinal/Foraminal Stenosis is when the spinal canal narrows, resulting in compressed or irritated nerves.
