One of the main differences between alternative, chiropractic care and a traditional medicine approach to back pain is our Federal Way chiropractor works to identify and remove the cause of your pain not simply cover up your symptoms. Dr. Scholes thoroughly examines your upper, middle and lower back to determine why you are in pain. Then, she puts together a complete chiropractic care plan to remove your back pain and restore your motion. Some causes for back pain include:
If you are experiencing pain in your lower back that also extends into your legs, your sciatic nerve may be compromised by an off-set vertebrae. Using gentle chiropractic adjustments, Dr. Scholes places your vertebrae into alignment to lessen the nerve pain and pressure.
Back pain that is throughout your back may be the result of a spinal condition such as scoliosis or kyphosis. If your spine is curving in the wrong direction, it begins to put pressure on nerves and organs which can lead to pain. Dr. Scholes uses manual adjustments to set your spine into a healthier alignment and also teaches you exercises to support this healthy posture.
If a vertebrae has shifted out of place, you feel pain. Using our natural pain management approach, our Federal Way chiropractor focuses on chiropractic adjustments to position the vertebrae. She gently nudges the bones into pain-free alignment so you are better able to move and enjoy life.
The discs rest between the vertebrae and act as a cushion for movement. If the disc is damaged or begins to leak, it may interfere with the nerve space and lead to pain. Manual adjustments are part of your pain management care plan and will create a larger space so the body reabsorbs the herniated disc.
Back pain does not have to become a permanent part of your life. Chiropractic care provides holistic treatment options such as manual adjustments, nutritional support and lifestyle guidance to manage your pain and improve your motion. Dr. Scholes evaluates your condition and sets out to remove the cause of your back pain. Her approach also positions your back to be less susceptible to future injuries and pain.
