Different Types of Back Pain 

Getting to the source of your back pain begins with your initial consultation. Describing your type of back and its source will provide us the answers to diagnose the appropriate treatment to treat your back pain.

Axial or mechanical pain is typically sharp, and it may come and go. If you've ever pulled a muscle, you've experienced mechanical pain. 

Referred pain is usually dull and somewhat achy. It may come and go or seem to move around in location. An injury in the low back may refer pain to your hips or legs, as is common in sciatica. An upper or mid back subluxation can leave your neck and shoulders achy. This sort of pain is tricky to treat, because you must treat it at the root -- which is often not where it aches. 

Radicular pain is a searing, shooting pain that is often accompanied by pins and needles sensation. When you experience this type of pain, you know it's probably nerve compression, injury or inflammation. 

How our Chiropractor in Richmond VA Treats Back Pain 

We combine the following services on an individual basis to address back pain: 

  • Acupuncture - Acupuncture promotes pain relief by flooding the body with endorphins and redirecting your body's energy to relieve muscular aches and pains. Acupuncture helps relax you, which makes chiropractic adjustments more effective. 
  • Chiropractic - By realigning the spine, ligaments, and joints, chiropractic adjustments relieve subluxations, promote musculoskeletal healing, and reduce symptoms. A series of adjustments can relieve your pain. 
  • Massage Therapy - Massage soothes tight muscles and encourages circulation in injured tissue, which promotes recovery.  
  • Physical Therapy - Once we've relieved your pain, we use physical therapy to help you recover lost strength, flexibility, and mobility. 

By combining these services, we can help you recover fully with no reliance on pain medication, which can be costly. In treating your back pain we also treat the whole person. We may recommend pain-relieving stretches or nutritional supplements, which encourage healing and whole person health.
