The pain you experience is only the messenger. Your body tells you that something is wrong. There is an underlining cause that needs to be addressed.
The body has a way of telling you somethings wrong - pain, this should not just be smoothed over with the use of drugs. That would be like removing the battery to quiet a smoke detector!
Drugs can silence the painful alarm, but overlook the cause.
Two Common Causes
The nerve-rich joints between each spinal bone are a common cause of back pain. The pain can be a sign these interlocking joints aren’t moving correctly.
The cartilage discs between spinal bones can be involved. Trauma can cause the discs to bulge, putting pressure on nearby nerves.
Specific chiropractic techniques can help to correct it. By restoring and optimizing your spinal functions we can help reduce nerve involvement and pain giving your body the ability to heal properly.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Isn’t some back pain normal?
No natural, healthy body should be in pain. Pain comes in all shapes and sizes at all ages, this is your body telling you something is not right and that a problem or injury has developed. We have the ability to adapt to different situations, meaning your body will compensate when it detects minor aches and pains. With time the pain can fade away, but if the underlying problem is not attended to it can eventually become more painful, more difficult and more expensive to resolve.
Should I use muscle relaxants?
First, we don’t dispense drugs. In our clinic we rely on natural healing methods to help the body to heal itself. Muscle relaxants and even the most common over-the-counter pain medications fail on two counts. First, they don’t address the underlying cause of your problem. Second, side effects such as kidney failure, liver damage and even death can result. We tend to recommend ice. It has an analgesic effect without the side effects associated with pain medications.
