Back pain treatment Beaverton, OR
The most common condition chiropractors treat is back pain. Astoundingly, 80% of people will have a significant episode of back pain at some point in their life, and over 31 million Americans are suffering from back pain at any one point in time. It is indeed an epidemic in our generation. At Catalyst Chiropractic and Rehabilitation, we are pleased to bring you professional treatment for back pain in Beaverton, OR.
Luckily, back pain is largely mechanical in nature, meaning only a small percentage of cases are caused by an underlying disease like inflammatory arthritis, cancer, or infection. More common causes can include misalignment of the vertebrae, or vertebral subluxation, unconditioned core muscles, sprains and strains, repetitive stress, disc herniations, and osteoarthritis.
At Catalyst we treat both acute (recent) and chronic (long-standing) back pain. In our experience we have found that acute pain can become chronic if left untreated. Scar tissue, muscle weakness, joint restrictions and compensations increase as time goes on and will cause a vicious cycle of chronic pain and inflammation. This chronic pain cycle can be broken and healing can occur, but can take significantly longer than acute back pain. Since back pain is not commonly caused by underlying disease, it tends to respond well to natural, non-invasive treatments like chiropractic care. In addition to chiropractic adjustments, we offer a host of other natural, gentle treatments for back pain such as ultrasound, electrical muscle stimulation, cold laser, and therapeutic exercises.
