Back pain is an unfortunate problem for many individuals throughout the Sterling, VA, area. At Cascades Chiropractic Wellness Center, our Dr. Jason Winseck is looking to change that. Our practitioner offers a number of treatments to ease both acute and chronic pain. In some cases, it's used to facilitate the healing process, while in others it's to manage it more effectively.
Causes of Back Pain
Back pain may be temporary or long-term. For some people, it's an indefinite part of their lives.
Some people develop back pain from repeated stress on the area. Others suffer from it from an injury, possibly from a sports-related, automobile accident, or another personal injury.
In some patients, the pain is from a chronic condition such as degenerative disc disease, arthritis, or fibromyalgia.
Diagnosing the Problem
At our Sterling, VA, practice, our practitioner takes all the necessary steps to ensure you're given the correct treatments that are most beneficial for you.
The first part of the exam consists of you filling out a medical history report. You then will speak to our practitioner and identify when you experience pain, what worsens it, and what other symptoms you have. Our practitioner may assess your gait or range of motion in that particular area. During your examination, our chiropractor will look for tender, swollen, or tight areas around the region where you're experiencing pain.
In some cases, our chiropractic specialist will request you undergo an X-ray, so we can either rule out causes or determine the root of your back pain.
Treating Your Back Pain
At our practice, our practitioner will provide you with a treatment plan geared toward helping you recover or to better manage your condition. Our practitioner may include exercise therapy as one of your treatments. During this approach, our practitioner will guide you through stretches that gently work the area. They encourage blood flow to promote healing and loosen up your soft tissue to help with flexibility in the area.
Sometimes, we may recommend spinal adjustments, which optimize nerve function throughout your back.
We also offer a variety of other treatments, like spinal decompression, massage therapy, and cold laser therapy to better manage your pain.
No matter what treatments you receive, we make sure we keep your overall health and the cause of the pain in mind.
