Our Method for Treating Back Pain

Our chiropractors are licensed Doctors of Chiropractic and have years of experience treating back pain. At Evolve Chiropractic of Freeport, you get precise care for your back pain that is personalized to your unique needs. 

We use advanced tools and techniques to test what’s really happening in your spine. Using a combination of x-rays and other diagnostic methods, we show you the root issues causing your back pain so you can understand what’s really going on and what needs to happen to improve your condition.

From there we work together with you to establish a course of care. This may include chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, personalized exercises for you to do at home and other natural therapies.

We make every effort to heal your back pain naturally and at affordable prices.

Types of Back Pain

There are many types of back pain we see at Evolve Freeport but they can generally be broken down into one of two types: chronic back pain or acute back pain.

Chronic back pain

Prolonged use of pain medications for back pain generally does not provide any improvement or desired results for people with chronic pain. Natural treatments like massage and spine manipulation are often more effective and beneficial for this type of pain.

Acute lower back pain

People with acute back pain (defined as pain lasting less than 3 to 6 months) can sometimes manage to improve through self-care methods and healthy activity. However, if you have been trying to improve your condition for more than a couple weeks (or relying on pain-numbing medications), it may be very helpful to consult a chiropractor.

Symptoms of Back Pain

There are many different indicators that your back is not functioning properly. Unfortunately, pain is a major one. Here are a few ways that can manifest:

  1. Difficulty standing, sitting or walking
  2. Sudden muscle spasms
  3. Muscle cramps
  4. Sudden pains
  5. A sore back that is painful to touch

Causes of Back Pain

Until you’ve had a proper examination, it may not be clear exactly where your back pain is coming from. The back is made up of many parts – the spine, ligaments, tendons, joints, discs and muscles. If any one of these parts are not functioning properly, pain may be the result.

Here are some of the specific causes we see in our office:

Strained muscles

The muscles, ligaments and tendons in your spine can get strained and damaged when they are pulled or torn beyond their limits.

This is very common in people who engage in heavy physical activity like sports. You may also suffer from these pains during your routine daily activities if they are particularly intense one day or if you move in a way that is unnatural.

Stress

When you are under stress, your blood pressure and heart rate rise. That can cause your muscles to strain and tighten. Prolonged or constant stress may make your muscles sore and weak.

Vertebral subluxations

The alignment, movement, integrity and physiological functions of your spine get affected due to abnormal structural and functional changes of the back. This results in a painful condition in the spine known as vertebral subluxation.

Subluxations (misalignments in the spine) can occur all along the spine. Vertebral subluxation has the potential to impair the functioning of the nervous system.

Herniated discs

When the rubber-like cushions between the individual bones of the spine get ruptured, it results in a herniated disc. This causes the internal disc material to get pushed into the spinal cord. When you get a herniated disc, it is very common to feel irritation and pain.
