Back Pain

Back pain is one of the most common reasons to see your local chiropractor. Our Rice Lake chiropractic office gets daily visits from patients suffering from back pain, and that pain ranges from a slight hindrance to complete immobility. No matter your age, physical ability, or activity level, your back may need some support. 

 

Dr. DeSantis recommends coming in for a visit if you are experiencing acute, chronic, sharp, or dull back pain. While your pain may seem trivial at the moment, your body is trying to tell you something when it shows pain. 

 

Working with a chiropractor to find the cause of the problem before it leads to more significant health concerns is a smart step to getting your body balanced and fully functioning. 

 

Whether your back pain is causing you discomfort during your daily routine, eliminating the possibility of your workouts, or dominating your life overall, our Rice Lake chiropractic office wants to support you. 

 

Let’s talk about your wellness goals and how to achieve them through natural spinal care and recovery.

Should I See a Chiropractor For My Back Pain?

The short answer to this question: yes. Because a balanced spine is vital to your body’s health and its ability to properly support your movements, finding out why it’s in pain should be a top priority. Our chiropractic solutions will help find the root of your symptoms with a holistic approach. 


 

Many of our patients visit us for one or more of the following: 

 

  • Pain in the back- sharp, dull, stabbing, throbbing, or radiating

  • Sore, tender, or aching back muscles 

  • Lumbar pain / lower back pain

  • A stiff back 

  • Loss of range of motion or flexibility in the back

  • Swelling or redness in the back

 

These pain points may arise due to inactivity, prolonged activity, irregular spine use, actions, or posture or because of something more traumatic such as a fall or car accident. 

Other reasons include:

 

  • Athletic injury

  • Poor ergonomics

  • Working at a computer all-day

  • Work-related injury 

  • Sitting all-day

  • Poor moving or lifting practices 

  • Lifting heavy items incorrectly 

  • Abrupt movements or pulling of the body

 

We can employ a number of safe, non-invasive solutions to support your goals of a healthy spine. Not only will our team provide you with chiropractic care through the hands-on approach of finding restricted segments of the spine and adjusting them, but we will educate you on how to care for your spine proactively. Dr. DeSantis offers his patients reliable resources that cultivate a stable relationship between the patient and the patient’s body. 

 

Understanding that the current working environment is unconventional, we think it’s important to educate those who are now working remotely on some beneficial, natural healthcare practices. We’d like the opportunity to work with you on getting and maintaining proper alignment, which will make a massive difference in your comfort level and support the higher overall function of body and mind.  

 

When your spine is working in its natural, most reliable state, it can maximize the body’s performance. Chiropractic care for your back pain is responsible and effective. If you can avoid unsafe surgery or medication, that’s a win for you and your health.

Why Do I Have Back Pain?

Our back is made up of our spine, which supports just about every step we take and every move we make. We ask a lot of our spine, and it generally follows through. It’s for this reason that it’s so important to see a chiropractor if your back starts to hurt. With just a single joint out of place, the integrity of the spine is jeopardized. 

 

Dr. DeSantis can effectively determine the imbalance in your spine before it causes more pain and more serious problems in other areas or your back, neck, or hips. 

 

You may have your first encounter with back pain after a significant accident or after simply removing your shirt. Some of the more common causes are: 

 

  • Fractures

  • Herniated discs

  • Pulled muscles

  • Sprains and strains

  • Bruised tissue

  • Spine compression 

 

If your back pain is consistent or chronic, an array of more complex issues may be the cause, including; 

 

  • Sciatica

  • Spinal tumors

  • Arthritis

  • Osteoporosis

  • Degenerative disc disease

  • Scoliosis

 

All of these conditions can be very painful if not treated quickly and adequately through natural chiropractic care. However, the good news is that they can be treated. Dr. DeSantis will never mask your pain with harmful prescription medications but will find the cause of your pain and remedy it there.

How Will a Chiropractor Treat My Back Pain?

No matter your activity level, when your back is in pain, your lifestyle will pay the price. Even mild discomfort can make sitting at your desk difficult. Finding spinal alignment will promote a body that’s in balance, and with the right proactive care, you can keep it that way.

  • Chiropractic adjustments to spine and extremities
