Back Pain Relief in Edina

casual man with back painNot surprisingly, back pain is one of the most common reasons why people seek chiropractic care. This type of discomfort can result from various activities such as sports, lifting improperly, falling, slipping, and even minor tasks like picking something up off the floor.

Specific chiropractic care is key to determining the exact cause because low back pain can also stem from neck misalignment due to the head’s weight, which puts substantial pressure on the lower back. It is important to see a chiropractor like Dr. Brenda, who will focus on your entire spine and work towards finding the cause of your pain.


Common Causes of Back Discomfort

Back pain can often be attributed to two common causes: the facet joints and the spinal discs. The facet joints, located on the back side of each spinal bone, are rich in nerves and can become a source of pain when they don’t move properly. Another contributing factor is the involvement of the spinal discs. Trauma can cause these discs, which act as cushions between spinal bones, to bulge and pressure nearby nerves.

Your Choices

We have provided safe and natural chiropractic care to numerous individuals. However, there are alternative options available to consider:

  • Ignoring the issue may lead to the worsening of spinal problems.
  • Opting for bed rest may prolong the problem.
  • Therapy and exercise can put stress on malfunctioning joints.
  • Medication may numb the body instead of addressing the root cause.
  • Surgery should only be considered as a last resort, as it is irreversible.

By weighing these choices, you can make an informed decision about your approach to addressing your spinal health.

The Chiropractic Approach

When it comes to addressing back pain, chiropractic adjustments offer a specific approach that focuses on improving spinal function. By restoring the proper movement of the spine, these adjustments can help facilitate the healing process of discs and soft tissues, reduce nerve involvement, alleviate pain, and restore stability. It’s important to prioritize spinal care even before experiencing pain or issues with your lower back to avoid the onset of back pain.

For individuals experiencing back pain, Y-strap adjustments can offer significant relief. This technique involves the use of a specialized device known as the Y-strap, which is designed to apply controlled traction to the spine. By gently stretching the spine, Y-strap adjustments can help decompress the vertebrae, alleviate pressure on spinal discs, and relieve tension in the surrounding muscles.

A Patient Success Story

Dr. Brenda had a patient who couldn’t walk, sit, stand, or lie down without excruciating pain. After a series of adjustments, particularly four times in one week, he started feeling less pain, experienced improved mobility, and became a happier person!

Frequently Asked Questions

Isn’t back pain normal?

No! Pain of any kind, regardless of your age, is a sign that something is wrong. Pain is how your body signals that a limit has been reached or a problem has developed. While pain may diminish in time, if the root cause isn’t addressed, it may slowly worsen until it becomes more difficult and expensive to resolve.

How soon can a person expect to feel better in your care?

The time frame for improvement varies depending on the extent of the injury, the body’s healing rate, and adherence to the doctor’s recommendations.

How does chiropractic work?

Chiropractic is effective because your body is a self-healing, self-regulating organism that is governed by your nervous system. By eliminating interference from the nervous system, your body can operate at its best, and you can experience optimal well-being.

What about muscle relaxers?

Chiropractors don’t dispense medication. Instead, we rely on natural methods.

What other treatments besides chiropractic can help?

Dr. Brenda recommends either icing at home or going in for cryotherapy to reduce joint inflammation, which is crucial for healing and fast results. Light stretching, exercise, and/or cupping can also aid in speeding up the healing process.
