If you're experiencing moderate to severe/ extreme back pain in Birmingham, AL, Gremmels Chiropractic Center, Inc. is here to offer relief. Everyone is susceptible to upper, mid and lower back pain whether it’s a simple irritating burn to the sharp pain that can leave you feeling incapacitated.
We serve Birmingham, Alabama and the surrounding areas, such as: Vestavia Hills, Hoover, Mountain Brook, Homewood, Tarrant, Fultondale, Coalburg, Trussville, Pinson, Roebuck, Clay, Chalkville, Gardendale, Irondale and more.
There are several factors that can lead to this pain, such as your posture, how you lift heavy objects, and just your day-to-day movement. Types of back pain include: lower back pain with sciatica, middle back pain, or upper back pain. Nerve and muscular problems, degenerative disc disease, and arthritis can result in back pain. Usually, back pain is caused from the stretching of the muscles or injury to the spine. Whatever the cause, chiropractic care for back pain is very common, and our health professionals are here to help you.
We specialize in quality chiropractic back pain treatment for Birmingham residents, diagnosing, treating, and correcting the underlying cause of spinal conditions. We offer our patients the latest techniques and physiotherapies available to ensure they have the relief they deserve.
There are many back pain treatment options available. One of the options is taking pain medication, but unfortunately, that will only postpone your symptoms and does very little to correct the cause of your problem.
Another option is to do nothing and see if the condition will resolve itself, but in most cases, this rarely works. For best results, we will take the patient through all three phases of care:
1. The pain phase: Our primary objective is to relieve your pain.
2. The corrective phase: We will make the necessary changes to the structures of your spine to allow the nervous system to function at its optimal level.
3. Rehabilitative phase: We will ensure that we strengthen the supporting postural muscles of the spine so they may provide the support needed to prevent future problems.
One form of back pain relief we use is the Cox Flexion Distraction technique. The Cox Flexion Distraction technique is more of a passive technique unlike most forms of chiropractic care. It slowly releases the pressure on your vertebrae, and then gradually moves them to allow stretching and the release of the muscles surrounding your spine.
We are experts in relieving all types of back pain. Birmingham and surrounding area residents can come to Gremmels Chiropractic Center, Inc. and take the first step towards a pain-free life. Call us today or make an appointment online today!
