Fort Collins Back Pain Treatment
Treatment for back pain in Fort Collins can be varied. Based on the type of physician you see, recommendations will follow based on their own standards and experience. In our office, we believe in offering treatment that addresses the cause of back pain. Back pain comes in a variety of forms and other names: sciatica, herniated disc, bulging disc, (also spelled disk) lumbago, numbness in the back, legs or buttock, and there is even a condition called “failed back surgery syndrome”.
Our approach in treating back pain is always based on individual patient needs. Treating pain involves addressing several issues at the same time: pain, joint function, muscle function, and mobility. When nerves are irritated, patients can experience numbness, tingling, and muscle weakness. Our Fort Collins back pain treatments are designed to deal with all of the components involved with back pain.
It is important to treat muscle spasm, inflammation, limited mobility, pain, and joint dysfunction. All of these factors must be properly addressed in order to experience not only relief, but resolution of the cause of the problem itself.
Our Fort Collins Back Pain Treatment Approach
Chiropractic treatment helps restore the mechanics of joint function. More importantly, adjustments take pressure off delicate nerves allowing nerve signal communications to occur in a normal fashion between the brain and tissue cells.
Muscle treatment includes therapeutic exercise, muscle therapy, and stretching to elongate shortened muscle patterns, improve range of motion, and to relieve pain
Physical Therapy in our office includes cold laser, spinal decompression therapy, electrical muscle stimulation, mechanical traction, and joint and muscle rehabilitation methods. All of these unique treatment methods help to improve the relationship between bone, joint, muscle, and nerve function and to facilitate the healing process.
