How to Avoid Back Pain with our Gresham Chiropractor
Chiropractic treatment for back pain at Aspire Chiropractic in Gresham includes a combination of natural techniques such as spinal adjustments and spinal therapy. Our Gresham chiropractor, Dr. Mark Betsill, may also recommend massage therapy to help you avoid future back pain. If you have been living with pain in your middle, upper or lower back, Dr. Betsill examines your spine to determine the reasons you are in pain. Pain that remains over time may be caused by conditions such as:
- Herniated discs
- Degenerative disc disease
- Spinal abnormalities
- Poor posture
- Weak muscles
If your back pain occurs suddenly following an injury or activity, Dr. Betsill also evaluates your injuries and symptoms to determine the best chiropractic care program for you. Sudden back pain may be the result of:
- Herniated discs
- Slipped vertebrae
- Pinched nerves
- A spinal fracture
- Muscle strains
Chiropractic Treatment for Back Pain
If you are experiencing back pain and live in the Gresham, Oregon area or in the Multnomah County area, we invite you to Aspire Chiropractic for a complete evaluation of your condition. Once Dr. Betsill examines your spine, he may recommend a series of chiropractic adjustments. Gentle adjustments position the vertebrae of your spine so that herniated discs can heal, spinal abnormalities ease and muscle strains are alleviated. In addition, your chiropractic treatment may include spinal decompression which increases the space between the vertebrae to promote healing of herniated or bulging discs.
If your back pain is caused by muscle strains or tight muscles, we may use massage therapy to relax the area and eliminate back pain. All of our treatments are natural and work with your body's natural resources to eliminate pain and restore your physical activity. Throughout your treatment, our chiropractor teaches you lifestyle corrections such as better ways to sit in a chair, ideal sleeping positions and how to lift heavy objects to keep your back pain-free. With consistent adjustments, your back learns to remain strong in a healthy alignment, which reduces future back pain episodes.
