Back pain can set severe limitations, not only on your range of motion but also on your everyday quality of life. This common symptom can stem from a variety of different causes, from acute injuries to chronic degenerative ailments. Many sufferers worry that they'll have to undergo major surgery or become addicted to painkillers in their efforts to overcome their pain. Fortunately, you don't have to worry about that when you're a patient at Natural Wellness LLC -- thanks to the drug-free, non-invasive treatment option provided by Dr. Mathew J Ternoir, our chiropractic specialist in Highland, Indiana.
The Basics of Back Pain
Your back is a much more complex structure than you may realize. This assembly of spinal vertebrae, discs, nerve tissue, muscles, and connective tissues supports your entire upper body while remaining flexible enough to let you twist, turn and bend. It's only natural, then, that this complexity may invite multiple opportunities for painful problems to develop. The most obvious and easily-understood examples are accident injuries such as auto accident injuries, sports injuries, and workplace injuries. A sharp jolt to the spinal column, or a misguided effort to lift a heavy object, can dislodge vertebrae, herniate discs, and strain soft tissues, causing acute back pain.
But your back pain may have a more subtle side to it, especially if you don't recall being involved in any painful incidents. Many cases of back pain develop over a period of time due to changes in the spinal column, from spinal stenosis (a narrowing of the space surrounding the spinal cord) to bulging discs that have shrunk due to loss of water content (stressing the vertebral joints in the process). Even a long-untreated spinal misalignment or postural problem can cause chronic strain in the back.
Chiropractic treatment for Nagging Back Problems
If your back won't let you get any sleep, do any work, or have any fun, it's time to make an appointment with Natural Wellness LLC.

Most cases can be resolved non-surgically and without drugs with the aid of chiropractic back pain treatment. Our safe, precisely-administered chiropractic adjustments help to bring misaligned spinal components back into their normal position, from herniated discs that need to be guided back into the spinal column to vertebrae that need to be returned to their proper relationships and spinal curvature.
