What Back Pain Treatment Options are there In Vineland?

Chiropractic Vineland NJ Pain Management

Back pain can be very painful and there are many causes. The good news is that there are many options and treatments that you can try in order to alleviate pain in Vineland. The most common reason we see patients here at Back Pain Relief Center in Vineland is due to compression. So that means joints are compressed, they’re perhaps pushing on nerves, discs may be herniated or more. The severity depends on a variety of factors including previous injuries or traumas, condition of the spine, age and deterioration, and more. So what can be done? Let’s take a look at some things you can do yourself and more professional treatments.


Self Treatment Options in Vineland

Ice it
Ice is nice and can help take down the inflammation and reduce pain. Use an ice pack for no more than 20 minutes at a time.

Pain Killers
If you can, take some ibuprofen and/or muscle relaxers. These will help relieve pain and provide some temporary relief.

Inversion Tables
These are great for helping decompress the spine. Half an hour or so of hanging upside down allows gravity to gently stretch your joints and relieve pressure.

Stretches
We have a selection of some great stretches you can also try to gently relieve pressure too.


Professional Treatment Options

Physical Therapy
Physical therapy is a great option and has helped many people find treatment solutions for their pain.

Spinal Decompression Machines
This therapy puts patients on a special machine that gently tractions the spine allowing any herniations to slip back in place.

Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy helps with soft tissue injuries in particular and helps improve the healing process along with reducing inflammation.

Chiropractic Care
And of course, chiropractic care decompresses joint pressure and allows patients to function and feel better too.


These are all conservative, non-surgical, and non-drug methods of relieving back pain. Any or a combination of the above (both self-care and professional care) can provide some good management of pain and even alleviate it altogether.

In the most severe cases, manipulation under anesthesia may also be considered (it’s like an aggressive adjustment under anesthetic that helps those extreme cases out of pain) before surgery is seriously looked at. Surgery may ultimately be the way to go, but it is always better to exhaust the conservative, non-invasive options like the above first.

There is a lot that can be done for back pain. From the most minor of cases to the more extreme cases, there are options. In most cases, pain can be eradicated or kept at a minimum. The worst cases will need ongoing maintenance and perhaps surgery.
