Welcome! Has back pain turned your daily life into a waking nightmare? Whether your pain is due to a recent injury or years of poor posture, untreated back pain can have a serious impact on your quality of life. More than 31 million Americans just like you are suffering from low back pain at any given point, according to the American Chiropractic Association. Unfortunately, many of these individuals are stuck relying on ineffective treatments like prescription painkillers or risky, invasive surgery. At Stillwell Family Chiropractic and Massage, we don’t just believe there is a better way to treat your pain; we know there is!
The majority of back pain causes are mechanical. Injury due to overuse, muscular stains and spasms from improperly lifting heavy objects, a herniated or slipped disc, and poor posture are four of the most common causes for back pain. The good news is that chiropractic care is an effective treatment option for addressing all of these causes for back pain. Our chiropractor, William Stillwell offers adjustments as they are the most effective way to restore proper alignment to the spine, alleviate pressure on the nerves, and support correct posture for proper spinal alignment.

All those hours spent hunched over a computer keyboard or slouching on the couch can really catch up with you! Poor posture compresses the lower spine, triggering nerve compression and pain. An accident injury can have a similar affect on the spine. Car accidents, sports injuries, or even an accidental slip and fall can result in a spinal misalignment. A herniated or slipped disc in the lower back, for example, can compress nearby nerves. If the disc compresses the sciatic nerve, this compression may trigger a radiating pain sensation along the length of the nerve. This condition, known as sciatica, is incredibly painful. Since the sciatic nerve travels from the lower back down the buttocks and the upper legs, this pain can truly become overwhelming and stop you from living an active life.
Chiropractic adjustments relieve pain because adjustments bring correct alignment back to the spine. When the spine is correctly aligned, it no longer compresses nearby nerves, which reduces nerve pain. Less compression can also enhance mobility and reduce some muscle stiffness and soreness. In short, a correctly aligned spine is a healthy, strong foundation for the entire body!
If you are struggling with chronic back pain, there is hope. You do not need to risk invasive surgery or depend on prescription drugs to manage your pain. Chiropractic care is a drug-free, non-invasive back pain relief treatment technique that corrects the root cause for your pain. With regular chiropractic adjustments, you can return to living a healthy, active life!
