Back Alignment

Overview

Are you experiencing lingering discomfort on your back? A misaligned back affects your daily activities, regardless if it brings chronic or acute pain. It makes sitting, walking, and even lying down painful and challenging. In more severe cases, this condition prevents you from engaging in sports and other activities requiring you to be mobile. Aside from its effects on your quality of life, a misaligned back also puts you at risk for other injuries and diseases.

Several risk factors can lead to a misaligned back. Some of these include:

  • Athletic injuries
  • Work-related injuries
  • Vehicular accidents
  • Poor posture
  • Unhealthy exercise habits
  • Old age
  • Underlying conditions

One of the common causes of a misaligned back is poor posture. Slouching strains your spinal discs over time since it stretches the ligaments in an irregular and unhealthy position. Bad posture can manifest into a bulging disc that appears as a misaligned back. Improper workout and exercising posture can also put excessive pressure on your back or cause a herniated disc. Aside from these habits, injuries can also result in having a misaligned back, especially during high-impact crashes. Lastly, people with underlying conditions like arthritis, osteoporosis, and scoliosis are more susceptible to having misaligned back.

Fortunately, there’s no need to endure the stress and pain brought about by a misaligned back. Here at LifeClinic, we seek to restore, maintain, and optimize your daily life through non-invasive chiropractic procedures along with physical and manual therapy.

Our chiropractors will first assess your condition and administer various medical tests before presenting a personalized treatment plan for you. This way, we can come up with a specific program for your speedy and healthy rehabilitation process. Schedule a session today and let LifeClinic be a part of your recovery.

Am I a suitable candidate for a back alignment procedure?

There are several ways to check if you have a misaligned back. You can lay down on a bed and observe for abnormal leg length differences. Since this condition causes lousy posture, one leg may feel, extend, or appear longer than the other. You’ll also notice excessive or uneven wear and tear on one of your shoes due to this. Besides leg length discrepancy, another tell-tale sign of a misaligned back is uneven shoulders.

Aside from the external appearance of your back, this condition also affects your walk. It can cause light or extreme limping, depending on the severity of your condition. You might also experience shoulder, hip, and lower back pains due to a misaligned back.

Other symptoms include:

  • Pain while sitting
  • Difficulty in walking
  • Lower back pains
  • Hip pains
  • Excessive fatigue

If you feel any of the symptoms mentioned above, you might have a misaligned back. We advise you to contact a chiropractic clinic immediately to help manage your pain and prevent your condition from worsening.

Recovery

The road to recovery is always different for everyone. Below are some of the factors that play a crucial role in an individual’s recovery:

  • Age
  • The severity of the condition
  • How long you’ve had the condition
  • How strict you adhere to the treatment plan
  • Willingness to make lifestyle changes

Most patients can start noticing improvements in their condition after the first few weeks of back alignment sessions. For the first chiropractic procedures, we’ll require you to visit us twice a week. This way, we can aim for a faster recovery. After six to eight weeks, most chiropractic patients feel significant changes due to the healing of their joints, tendons, and ligaments.

During this period, we’ll lessen your chiropractic session to once per week. We’ll also assess if you’re on the right track of the treatment plan. This approach will help us decide whether to continue with the program or make necessary adjustments for a better outcome.

Here at LifeClinic, other than our rehabilitation programs, we also place great importance on preventive care. These preventive programs in our chiropractic and rehabilitation clinics last from several months to years, depending on your progress. Through the course of the treatment, we’ll suggest diet and lifestyle changes for a healthier well-being.

Frequently Asked Questions

At the very least, you would need to visit your chiropractor two or three times a week. That number of sessions should be enough for overall relief.

However, factors like your condition and the length of your symptoms could require more frequent trips to your chiropractor. You’ll undergo intensive care if your body feels extreme pain, with two to three sessions and several weekly visits per year.

The time you spend on chiropractic care for your whole body depends on several factors. First, you’ll need to consider the duration of your pain. For instance, addressing a chronic condition like fibromyalgia through chiropractic care requires more treatment sessions. That said, your recovery will take longer than expected.

You’ll also need to think about your reasons for a full body adjustment. You could get treatment for a while if you’re after pain relief. But without enough care, you could feel discomfort again.

Chiropractic care for your whole body is safe when it’s performed by a trained chiropractor. LifeClinic’s chiropractors have studied the different areas of chiropractic care and applied this knowledge to help patients restore human function. We always focus on giving you the best care for your pain.

Furthermore, full body chiropractic adjustments are non-invasive and natural treatments. These adjustments rarely come with complications like compressed spinal nerves.

Chiropractic care for the whole body offers several benefits. For one, adjusting your body could help soothe neck pain, joint pain, headaches, and other forms of body pain. Your energy and metabolism can increase with a total body adjustment, too.

Additionally, chiropractic care could enable better digestion and blood flow. A full body adjustment could help you become more flexible and active, as well.
