Treatment for Upper Back Pain

Chiropractic care can be helpful in reducing back pain. Not only that, but you may also feel relief immediately after your first chiropractic adjustment. During your appointment, our chiropractors will check your spine and determine if there are any regions with a misalignment. Afterward, we’ll apply quick and gentle pressure to realign your spine. 

Depending on the condition of your spine, our chiropractors may recommend additional treatments as a part of your care plan, such as massage therapy and stretches. We may also recommend lifestyle changes that can help prevent back pain from reoccurring. Our chiropractors will also speak with you about how soon you should come back for your next adjustment, as consistency is important in helping you heal fully.
