At Advanced Wellness Centre, we treat upper, middle, and lower back pain. Learn more about common varieties of back pain and how our chiropractor in Richmond VA can help.
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.
We combine the following services on an individual basis to address back pain:
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.
