By beginning a chiropractic treatment plan you are taking an important step in taking control of your back health and future well-being.
Back Pain is a VERY common condition that 80% or more of the population suffers from periodically. Chiropractic care is helpful in not only reducing immediate pain episodes, but can also identify the cause of your pain and provide you common sense recommendations for how to reduce the likelihood of future episodes.
When you visit Clearview Chiropractic for the first time, Dr. Casey Titus will perform a thorough evaluation and exam to determine what is causing your problem and any other contributing factors. X-rays are provided if they determined to be necessary during the exam. A diagnosis is then determined, and a treatment plan will be recommended based on your individual condition. Referrals to other providers and specialists will be made when appropriate.
Repetitive occurrences of back pain can be caused by injury, chronic poor ergonomics, or simply degenerative changes, which are a common side effect of natural aging that makes your joints and surrounding tissues more vulnerable. Despite severity, not all pain requires aggressive interventions; in fact much of it can be treated with non-surgical techniques. In most cases there are 4 tissues that generate the pain:
2. Facet and SI Joints
3. Nerve Root
As a conservative provider, Dr. Titus uses many accepted techniques including joint manipulation, Flexion/Distraction manipulation, traction, advanced muscle and fascial release, cold laser/ e-stim. These treatments are intended to:
1. Decrease pain
2. Relax muscle spasm
3. Increase range of motion at joint
4. Restore normal movement
Dr. Titus will provide you personalized recommendations for exercises, stretching and other tools you can perform yourself to promote improvement of your condition and, ideally, limit or prevent future pain episodes.
