Affordable Back Pain Treatment to Set Your Life Straight Again
Often back pain is caused by improper lifting or overexertion. However, it can also be caused by inactivity. Sitting in a desk chair in a static position for hours on end (and years on end) increases stress on the back, legs, and shoulders and puts pressure on the spinal discs and surrounding muscles. For a chiropractor in Portland to help you with back pain, contact Associated Physicians to help you find the right solutions.
Many of our patients at Associated Physicians complain of work-related discomfort ranging from aches in the low back to a radiating “tingling” in the leg.
Detailed Chiropractic Exams to find the Source of Your Lower Back Pain
During our “work evaluation”, our patients receive care from both our medical doctor and chiropractors. The doctor will prescribe any necessary medication while a chiropractor will direct the physical component of your care.
A chiropractic examination is similar to a standard medical exam performed by a medical doctor. However, we focus on the structure of the spine and how minor adjustments can impact various parts of the body.
We will take a comprehensive medical history, perform a physical exam, and determine whether lab analysis or x-rays should be included in your treatment. Before your appointment with us, prepare by considering:
- How long and how frequently the symptoms occur
- If this is a sports-related injury
- Terms to describe the sensations (throbbing, “pins and needles”, radiating, burning, etc.)
- Location of the discomfort
- What you’ve been doing to relieve the pain (stretching, sitting, pain medication)
- If any movement makes the pain worse
