Back Pain FAQ

Living with back pain can make basic everyday tasks far more difficult. People often think the solution to this is surgery, medication, or just ignoring it. However, chiropractic care is a non-invasive treatment option to relieve back pain and help people live without discomfort. Here at Live Proper Chiropractic in Westerly, our team is committed to helping you eliminate your back pain so that you can live comfortably. Here are some common questions patients often have about back pain.


Why Should I Visit A Chiropractor for Sore Back Muscles?

While your muscles are sore, the problem is likely due to an issue with your spine's alignment. Over time the spine can shift out of position, which pulls muscles out of place. While your muscles might be sore, the problem is likely due to a more significant issue in your musculoskeletal system.  

Why Does My Back Hurt After an Auto Accident?

Car accidents can severely injure your spine. Sudden impacts can push the discs of your spine out of alignment and can even cause a rupture of the disc. This leads to the gel inside the disc to leak out and cause nerve pain. Your back is the center where nerves, muscles, and ligaments come together and can easily be injured in a car accident leading to severe pain and limited motion. Sudden jerking movements and impact can cause fractures in the spine and the facet joints.

How Can Chiropractic Care Help My Back's Posture?

It can be challenging to change a prolonged case of poor posture, especially if you are used to it now. Nevertheless, chiropractic care can help you achieve great posture with our spinal adjustments. Our chiropractic treatment allows patients suffering from poor posture to regain alignment in their backs and their range of motion. If your poor posture is due to an injury or weight-related issue, our chiropractic care can help with a blend of treatment options that are right for you.

How Can Chiropractic Treatment Help Sciatica?

Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve is pinched or irritated. This causes shooting pains from the buttocks down the leg. A spinal misalignment can lead to sciatica. This happens when the structures in the hip and lower back compress the sciatic nerve leading to irritation and inflammation. Chiropractic adjustments work to properly realign the spine, thereby removing pressure from the sciatic nerve.
