Back Pain

That approach is like removing the battery to quiet a smoke detector! At Commonwealth Family Chiropractic, we see patients of all ages and stages of life who are dealing with back pain, and we work to help them get back to living their lives without struggling from daily chronic issues.

Two Common Causes of Back Discomfort

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 these interlocking “fingers” aren’t moving right. The discs between spinal bones can be involved, too. Trauma can cause the soft, pulpy material in the middle to bulge, putting pressure on nearby nerves.

The Chiropractic Approach

Specific chiropractic adjustments can help improve spinal function. By restoring the way your spine works, discs and soft tissues may heal, nerve involvement may be reduced, discomfort can ease and better stability can return. Naturally, we think chiropractic is the best choice for your back pain! We begin care with an assessment to understand exactly what’s going on in your body. That way, there’s never any ‘guessing’–instead, we can focus on identifying the root cause and fixing the issue at its source. If we ever feel that you’d experience better results outside of our practice, we’ll always let you know-your health and healing journey always comes first with us. Next, we’ll discuss your care options, which may include a variety of adjustment techniques or modalities. If you have a preference, you’re always welcome to let us know. After performing a precise and gentle adjustment, we may provide additional care recommendations like stretching or muscle strengthening exercises that you can do to improve your results. Lastly, we’ll go over your care plan with you so there aren’t any surprises, and get you scheduled for your next visit.

For twenty-five years, Dr. Eriksen has been helping people manage pain through natural, safe chiropractic care.
