Welcome to Maplewood Spine Chiropractic Center: Back Pain

Pain: Your Body’s Signal

Pain of any kind is a signal that something’s 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 but not putting out the fire!


Two Common Causes of Back Pain

Facet Joint Dysfunction

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 that these interlocking “fingers” aren’t moving correctly.

Disc Problems

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

Your Choices

When faced with back pain, you have several choices:

  • Ignore it: Spinal problems may worsen over time.
  • Bed rest: This may prolong the problem.
  • Therapy/Exercise: May stress malfunctioning joints.
  • Medicine: It numbs the body but doesn’t address the root cause.
  • Surgery: The irreversible last resort.

The Chiropractic Approach

At Maplewood Spine Chiropractic Center, we’ve helped many people find relief from back pain through safe and natural chiropractic care. Our approach focuses on specific chiropractic adjustments to improve spinal function. By restoring the way your spine works, discs and soft tissues may heal, nerve involvement may be reduced, pain can ease, and better stability can return. Naturally, we believe that chiropractic is the best choice for your back pain!

Isn’t Back Pain Normal?

Pain of any kind, at any age, is a sign that something is amiss. Pain is your body’s way of signaling that a limit has been reached or a problem has developed. While pain may go away with time, if the underlying problem remains unattended, it may slowly worsen, making it more difficult and expensive to resolve.

What About Muscle Relaxers?

Chiropractors don’t dispense drugs. Instead, we rely on natural methods. When properly applied, ice can have an analgesic effect without the unwanted side effects associated with some pain medications.

How Does Chiropractic Work?

Chiropractic works because you are a self-healing, self-regulating organism controlled by your nervous system. When interference is removed from the nervous system through chiropractic adjustments, the body can function optimally, and you can feel your best.

If you’re experiencing back pain, don’t ignore the signals your body is sending. Contact Maplewood Spine Chiropractic Center today and let us help you find relief through natural, effective, and safe chiropractic care.
