The spine is our body’s central support structure. It keeps us upright, carries the weight of our head, arms and torso, and allows movement of the body. The spinal column is made up of 33 bones called vertebrae, which protect the spinal cord. Vertebrae lower in the back carry more weight and are therefore the largest vertebrae of the spinal column. Irritation to the spine and spinal disks can cause a plethora of problems including chronic back pain.
Chiropractic care is focused on the structure of the body, particularly the spine. Chiropractors are able to manipulate the body’s alignment to improve function and provide back pain relief.
When to See A Chiropractor for Back Pain
Trauma, such as a car accident or fall, can damage your spine in a number of ways. Ligaments, nerves, muscles or the spinal cord itself can be hurt. The vertebrae that make up the spinal column can be dislocated or fractured. The full effect of injuries may not be felt immediately as swelling and fluid buildup around your spinal cord can cause more damage over time resulting in upper back pain, lower back pain or both.
Regardless of what initiated your back pain, recognizing signs early on will help you take a proactive step towards your spine health. Patients experiencing any of the following symptoms should seek chiropractic guidance:
- Increased pain with flexion
- Irregular bowel issues
- Weakness in the legs
- Abdominal pain/fever along with lower back pain
- Tingling or numbness in the buttocks, legs, or feet, with or without lower
- back pain
- Vertigo or dizziness

Back Pain treatment
The first step to relieving back pain is a visit to our local Spokane chiropractor. After a full medical history, a physical exam may be given, followed by additional orthopedic neurological testing. Our chiropractor will let you know if tests such as x-rays, MRI, or CT scans are needed. Once a diagnosis has been made, our doctor will put together a custom course of treatment for your needs.
Treatment may involve lifestyle modifications, including an assessment of daily movements to restrict or avoid altogether. Physical therapy exercises can help strengthen the surrounding areas, relieving pressure from the sciatic nerve and reducing back pain.
Spinal manipulation techniques include hands-on spinal manipulation or instrument assisted manipulation. By giving regular spinal adjustments, chiropractors are able to provide gentle, non-addictive and non-invasive back pain relief.
