San Antonio Chiropractic Care for Back Pain

Chiropractic Treatment for Back Pain

San Antonio chiropractic care can diagnose and treat problems that affect the nerves, muscles, bones, and joints of your body. At a basic level a chiropractor will gently adjust your spine. At a deeper level chiropractors are doing much more than just adjusting the spine.


Visiting a San Antonio chiropractor for back pain

After your initial visit and consultation your chiropractor in San Antonio will have a good idea of what your treatment plan is going to consist of. During your second visit you’ll probably be asked to lie on a table and receive the first of your gentle adjustments.


How many treatments will you need?

San Antonio chiropractic treatments can range from days to several weeks depending on the severity of your condition or the results you want to achieve. Chiropractic care can also be a lifelong choice to keep you on a path of well-being and solid core strength.

Many professional athletes continue to see a chiropractor even when there is no acute pain, as regular adjustments can keep you aligned and in peak form. Chiropractors in San Antonio are not just there when it really hurts; they can be in your corner frequently, keeping your body’s systems communicating at a high level and keeping muscle and bone deterioration at bay.


What causes back pain?

The back is a complex structure of bones, joints, ligaments, and muscles. Damage to any of the structures can lead to back pain. Back pain has a long list of causes and we are all likely to suffer at some point in our lives from poor posture, obesity, or psychological stress. Each of these can lead to back pain.


Some tips to prevent back pain

  • Maintain a healthy diet and weight
  • Stretch and exercise (ask your San Antonio chiropractor what is safe)
  • Maintain proper posture at work
  • Wear low heeled shoes

While this is not an exhaustive list of tips, it’s a good starting point on the road to optimum back health. Contact our Thousand Oaks United Chiropractic team for more information.

"After reluctantly agreeing to go to Dr. Helms on a bet, I was surprised and happy to say that I have found the relief I have been looking for . So I lost 20 dollars on the bet, the reward was worth so much more than that. "
