Getting Relief for Upper Back Pain
Your upper back is that section between your neck to the bottom of your ribs. It is one of the largest regions of your body, so it makes sense that you can injure your muscles or tendons in your upper back from time to time. Maybe you strained muscles during a strenuous workout, or you just bent the wrong way when picking up your baby.
When you find yourself suffering from upper back pain, where do you turn? While traditional doctors might prescribe medication for your aches and pains, our chiropractor takes a natural, all-encompassing look at your health to help relieve the pain. Crawford Family Chiropractic has convenient locations in Crossville, Kingston, Jamestown, Livingston, and Oneida, TN.
You can injure your back anywhere. It could be at home, at work, at school, at the gym, or while shopping at the grocery store. One of the main reasons people seek help for upper back pain is that they have been in an automobile accident and suffered some injury.
The good news is that at Crawford Family Chiropractic, our chiropractor can provide pain relief! We take a three-phase approach to your healing. Your first visit consists of talking to our doctor about your pain - what hurts, where it hurts, how much it hurts. Our chiropractor also needs to learn more about your overall health. If you have some other medical condition, we need to know to factor in how that might affect your back or aggravate your pain. We will also ask about your job; do you sit at a desk or in a delivery truck most of the day? Do you lift heavy objects all day? Your job may be a primary or secondary cause of your upper back pain. And finally, we will need to discuss your lifestyle. Are you super active and always on the go, or do you lead a sedentary life?
Once we know all that (and perhaps take CT scans or x-rays), we concentrate on relief care. We want to try to make you feel better with less pain as soon as possible. Once that phase has been completed, we go to corrective/restorative care. This phase is where we concentrate on healing muscles and tendons. The last phase is wellness care - once you are feeling better, we want to make sure that you keep feeling better with adjustments, massage therapy, or exercises you can do at home.
