Back Pain Treatment with Chiropractic Care
Back Pain Treatment in Iselin, NJ: Back pain affects millions of people each year and can be brought on by something as simple as tying up your shoes. Back pain becomes more common as the discs separating the vertebrae become less hydrated and flexible. By properly aligning and mobilizing the spine, we allow the discs to restore lost strength and flexibility thus decreasing pain and increasing function.
Some causes for back pain include:
- Bulging and/or herniated discs
- Muscle spasms
- Subluxations of the vertebrae
- Strain and/or injury to the muscles or ligaments supporting the back
- Small fractures to the spine from osteoporosis
