Back pain seems self-explanatory as pain located in your back. However, you may feel back pain that is constant or intermittent. Your back pain may radiate from the spine outward or only be located in one place on your back. For others, back pain comes on gradually and for some suddenly. Whatever your symptoms, even if they include pain that extends into your arms or legs or pain that is also associated with muscle weakness, we encourage you to speak with Dr. Michael Cutitta or Dr. Cacie Wrye at one of our two Pittsburgh chiropractic locations. Our chiropractors listen to your symptoms and offer suggestions as to how we can work with you to decrease your back pain. Some of our back-pain reducing techniques include:
● Lifestyle changes such as improvements in the way you sleep, sit, stand and walk.● Chiropractic adjustments to align your spine and allow for proper nerve-signal flow and muscle contractions.● Massage therapy to ease back pain caused by tight muscles.● Physiotherapy techniques that may include ultrasounds, electric muscle stimulation, and traction to help align your spine.● Exercise programs aimed to improve your posture and decrease back pain.
