Written By North Dover Chiropractic Wellness Centre on June 8, 2020

rsz lowbackpain1Low back pain isn’t just irritating – it can be completely debilitating. 

Many people avoid seeking treatment because they’re afraid their only option is surgery. 

Thankfully, you can receive a safe, effective low back pain treatment from your Toms River chiropractor that can not only reduce your pain but can help prevent or eliminate the need for surgery down the road. 

Low Back Pain Treatment – How Your Chiropractor Provides Relief 

Your Toms River chiropractor can create a low back pain treatment plan that’s specific to your needs. Oftentimes, your chiropractor will recommend adjustments in conjunction with lifestyle changes. 

Chiropractic Adjustments    

When the spine is out of alignment, your muscles, tendons, and ligaments are strained. Without treatment, that tension can result in pain and injury. 

Adjustments return your musculoskeletal system to proper alignment. The result is less pain due to muscle tension and nerve irritation, as well as improved range of motion. Being in proper alignment can also increase your balance and reduce your risk of injury. 

Lifestyle and Nutritional Counseling 

In addition to being a chiropractor, Dr. Doreen Groves is also a registered nurse and a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner. Therefore, in addition to providing you with chiropractic treatment, she will also make other recommendations, like: 

  • Dietary Changes: Inflammation in your body can make low back pain worse. Dr. Groves can recommend nutritional changes that reduce inflammation
  • Exercises/Stretches: Dr. Groves will recommend exercises to strengthen the body – particularly your core (back and abdominal muscles) – as well as stretches to reduce the tension and improve flexibility. 
  • Ergonomics: A common cause of low back pain is poor ergonomics at work, which strains muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Correcting your posture will ease the pain. 

Taking Steps Now Can Help Prevent Pain in the Future

Your Toms River chiropractor doesn’t just want to help you get out of pain now – she wants to prevent low back pain down the road, too. To do that, she provides care and at-home recommendations that help heal your back and reduce your risk of lasting damage that can result in chronic pain. 

To best serve you, though, she needs to see you as soon as you experience pain. The sooner you see her, the sooner you’ll get relief and prevent long-term issues.
