Mid Back pain
Don’t let mid back pain slow you down anymore
Your mid back houses several important components involved in your mobility, including rib articulation, thoracic vertebrae, thoracic facet joints, thoracic spinal musculature, and thoracic spinal nerves. When you experience pain in your mid back, it is most likely due to a combination of the following factors:
- A history of activities (work or play) generating high levels of spinal stress
- Poor postural habits
- Deconditioned & weak spinal musculature
- Improper firing patterns of spinal musculature
- Faulty spinal biomechanics
For over a century, chiropractors have been using their techniques to treat mid back pain. Chiropractic treatment is a non-invasive, drug-free, natural alternative that corrects underlying problems that contribute to back pain, helping you find relief at the source.
For mid back pain, the primary treatment used by our chiropractors is known as a chiropractic spinal adjustment. This is a non-invasive therapy that uses gentle manual and mechanically applied force into portions of the spinal column. A spinal adjustment can decrease your pain, increase your range of motion, decrease muscle spasms, and may reduce the chance of your old injury returning.
As a part of your treatment plan, we train you on lifting techniques, how to tolerate repetitive motions, how to tolerate and avoid long periods of sitting, and more. We teach you new habits and techniques that will protect your back when you are at home and at work.
low Back Pain
Non-invasive & proven methods that relieve low back pain
Low back pain is a debilitating condition that most Americans suffer from at least once in their life. Our chiropractors have worked with countless individuals to address and relieve their low back pain. We are uniquely trained to identify, evaluate, treat, and manage low back pain resulting from car accidents, chronic illness, work injury, or sports injury.
Even though the cause of low back pain may be difficult to pinpoint, chiropractic medicine has shown that there are several factors that contribute the most to low back pain, including joint or disc pressure, deconditioned spinal musculature, faulty spinal biomechanics, and poor habits related to posture and lifestyle. You will experience relief from your low back pain as we address these factors that are known to cause tissue damage and injury.
Our chiropractors focus on correcting the underlying problem contributing to your pain. By addressing the source, we can target your pain effectively and help you achieve relief.
Massage for back pain
Supported healing through professional bodywork & massage
At SE Portland Chiropractic, we believe in a comprehensive treatment approach. In addition to our chiropractors, we have massage therapists on-site what work in collaboration to give you the best treatment possible. Especially when it comes to back pain, massage therapy can help to alleviate discomfort and address secondary issues, such as sore or strained muscles. For example, a disc injury will cause pain in and of itself, and the muscles will tighten up in response to the primary injury, leaving you with two or more potential points of pain.This is because your muscles have to work overtime to compensate for the weakness in your damaged or injured joint.
Therapeutic massage is an ideal support for your chiropractic treatment. It also decreases nerve sensitivity that may have resulted from the joint damage. Bodywork also assists in stress reduction, providing much needed emotional and mental relief.
