It depends on the style of adjusting. However, essentially bones/joints that are out of place are put back in place which relieves the pressure on the nervous system that is causing the pain. Dr. Lesa G. Ansell, DC, APRN, AGNP-C READ MORE
I am dual disciplined as a nurse practitioner and a chiropractor. So, I approach things a little differently. I believe in doing the least invasive thing 1st period and that would be adjustments. If a bone is rotated out of place, it puts pressure on a nerve that supplies the muscles. If that occurs, a muscle spasm can occur. Most chiropractors also use some form of electro muscle stimulation in their offices which also can help. In addition to that, in my office, we use muscle relaxer, and do trigger point injections directly into the muscles with a steroids. So, there are many approaches that would be beneficial, it just depends on what you are looking for and which approach you believe is best. Hope this helps! Dr. Lesa READ MORE
There certainly can be. When stressed, we often have increased muscle tension. This can put pressure on the nerves, as they exit through the openings in between the vertebrae. When this occurs, people experience pain. Sr. Lesa G. Ansell, DC, APRN, AGNP-C READ MORE
Back pain comes from many causes. It can be from the muscle, bones, joints, nerves, discs, or vascular problems. To properly diagnose your specific cause requires an extensive history and exam. To "guess" would be irresponsible, and unsafe, so I encourage you to make an appointment and be properly diagnosed. READ MORE
