Back Pain Treatment

Back Pain Relief From Your Cornelius Chiropractor

Many of our patients come to us complaining of back pain. Fortunately, chiropractic care is one of the best ways to address back pain. Chiropractic adjustments and other complementary treatments can do a great deal to lessen and even eliminate back pain. Non-invasive, gentle and effective, chiropractic care from your Cornelius chiropractor at Holistic Healing Chiropractic is only a phone call away.

Causes of Back Pain

The spinal cord and the surrounding tissues are amazingly complex, which means there can be a wide variety of causes for back pain. Some of the most common causes we see include:

Accidents and Injuries

Car accidents, sports injuries, workplace injuries – there are a variety of ways you can injure your back and find yourself in pain. Our chiropractic clinic works with all types of injuries, so there is a good chance we can help you get relief.


The vertebrae in your spine are designed to stack together in a very specific way. When that alignment is disrupted, through injury, accidents, poor posture, disease or other causes, it can put pressure on nerves and lead to discomfort.

Bulging or Herniated Discs

The discs in your back are made up of a stiff outer layer with a soft inner layer. Each disc is supposed to occupy a space between one vertebrae and the next, but sometimes problems can develop with discs. They can bulge outward, or even herniate – where the soft inner material pushes out from inside the outer layer – putting pressure on nerves and causing pain and discomfort.

Strained Muscles or Sprained Ligaments

The muscles and ligaments that support your spinal column can be injured as well, leading to pain.

Degenerative Diseases

There are a number of degenerative diseases which can damage the tissues of the back and cause pain. Probably the most well known degenerative disease is osteoarthritis.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help

There are a variety of treatment options available from your chiropractor that can help treat your back pain. Some of these include:

Chiropractic Adjustments

Manual adjustments involve gentle, firm pressure from your chiropractor to realign your vertebrae and relieve pressure on the nerves in your spine. Your chiropractor will give you a careful examination to determine the type of adjustment you need, and then explain the adjustment process to you before completing the treatment.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy can be a great addition to chiropractic adjustments, loosening muscles, relieving tension and helping your adjustment to remain in place. Massage can also help relieve pain and improve range of motion.

Spinal Decompression

We utilize a non-invasive form of spinal decompression, which helps to draw your spine gently apart and relieve the pressure on your discs and nerves. Spinal decompression can be beneficial for patients who are suffering from disc issues. Spinal decompression also creates room for your body’s natural healing processes to occur more easily.

Physical Therapy

Sometimes the best way to avoid further back pain is to strengthen the muscles and increase mobility in the affected area. We can guide you through specific exercises that will make you stronger so your body can better support your spine. Regular physical therapy can do a lot to relieve pain and to prevent future injuries.

    Mary W.
  • "I have three bulging disc's in my lower back, one of which is pressing against a nerve. Due to being in so much pain I have put a lot more pressure and such on my right foot as well. Doctors have given me medication that doesn't touch the pain, but Dr. Draper and Dr. Gary as most of his patients lovingly call him will reduce my pain level more than half in one visit. I can't Recommend this place enough."
