I Hurt My Back! How Can a Chiropractor Help?

If you hurt your back, you've come to the right place. Our chiropractor at West Omaha Chiropractic & Sports Injury Clinic can help you recover from a pulled muscle or back injury, realign your back to stay pain free, and prevent future injuries through stretching and strengthening exercises.

Conditions Our Chiropractor Treats

We treat all types of back pain, including sports injury, auto accident injury, workplace injury, or pulled muscles. We also address back pain caused by pregnancy, back pain from chronic conditions such as arthritis, sciatica, or spinal stenosis, or back pain due to overuse or poor posture.

Let us find out what's causing your back pain, provide treatment, then keep you well with suggestions on how to take care of your back.

How Our Chiropractor Relieves Back Pain

Every patient is unique, so we start with a thorough investigation of your symptoms and your back. We'll run some simple tests to check your posture and alignment and to see where your tissue is inflamed. Based on what we find, we'll proceed with treatment through:

  • Chiropractic - Chiropractic adjustments realign the spine for improved biomechanics and pain relief. Our adjustments take pressure off the nervous system, adjust the vertebrae for a proper alignment, and relieve pain and stiffness so your symptoms decrease.
  • Therapeutic massage - If your back muscles are tense or inflamed, we may recommend a therapeutic massage to loosen tight tissue. Massage is especially helpful before a chiropractic adjustment, as we can go deeper with chiropractic when your muscles are loose, rather than tight.
  • Acupuncture - Acupuncture treatments release endorphins for natural pain relief. By combining chiropractic and acupuncture treatments, we can deliver faster recovery from back pain.
  • Laser therapy - To reduce discomfort, pain, and swelling, we may use the K-laser. Laser energy sinks beneath the skin to go deep into injured cells and promote healing from the inside out. Within minutes, our K-laser can cleanse the cells with fresh blood and energy, so your body can rest and recover from injury.

Depending on your condition and level of discomfort, we recommend several visits a week, or up to daily visits for severe back injuries. As you improve, we'll taper your chiropractic appointments.
