Back Pain: Mid Back Pain and Low Back Pain

Low back pain is the most common condition which causes people to seek chiropractic care. In fact, over 80% of all people will suffer from back pain in their lifetime. Chiropractors treat more than just low back pain. We can also help you with upper back pain, pain between your shoulder blades, and rib pain that extends outward from your spine. A careful examination of your spine will help us determine exactly what areas need to be addressed to resolve your complaint. Look no further, book your back pain treatment at Brummert Family Chiropractic in State College, PA.

Neck pain

Is your neck pain so severe that you are struggling just to make it through the day? Has you pain persisted for more than a couple days? Is your neck pain associated with tingling and numbness or radiating pain into your arms or hands? Now is the time to take action. A consultation with our chiropractor is the first step to resolving these problems.

Headaches

Did you know that headaches can be caused from dysfunctional joints and muscles in your neck? Chiropractic care can help reduce your headache pain by alleviating muscle tension and restoring normal function to the joints in your neck. We will also give you advice about proper posture and exercises that you can do on your own to reduce your headache pain.

Pain in the arms and legs

Our body has an intricate network of nerves that exit from our spine and provide communication between our central nervous system and all other systems of our body. Sometimes the nerves that exit our neck and low back become irritated or maybe even “pinched.” As a result of this compression or irritation of the spinal nerve roots, you may notice radiating pain that extends from your neck into your arms or hands, or radiating pain that extends from your back into your legs or feet.

Tingling and numbness in the arms and legs

In addition to radiating pain into your extremities, compression or irritation of nerve roots that exit from your spine may also cause you to feel tingling or numbness in your arms and legs. This symptom is called paresthesia, and people often report this as a feeling of “pins and needles” or a burning sensation in the arms or legs. Through evaluation and treatment, chiropractic care may be able to help resolve these symptoms.
