Our chiropractor offers a wide range of treatment options and non-invasive techniques to alleviate back pain and prevent it from reoccurring.
Causes of Back Pain
When your spine is affected by diseases, injuries, or misalignments, serious health issues and back pain can occur. Back pain often leads to pain or discomfort spreading to other parts of the body, making it harder to discern the root cause of the pain. That; 's why it's essential to see our practitioner for a professional assessment. Common causes of back pain include:
- Herniated or bulging discs

It is crucial to pinpoint the source of your back pain to eliminate it and help your body heal properly and effectively. Our chiropractor, Dr. Dan Fox, implements several all-natural chiropractic care treatments to diagnose and treat your back pain.
Chiropractic Treatments for Back Pain
Back pain requires immediate attention. Delays in treatment can result in serious health issues that more profoundly affect your health and lifestyle. Even minor back pain can lead to serious health-related issues if left untreated. At Fox Chiropractic, we will examine a patient's back pain and provide a personalized treatment plan for their unique needs. Common methods we use for back pain relief include:
Aligning the spinal discs alleviate pressure and tension from the surrounding areas. Realigning the spine also promotes blood and oxygen flow throughout the back.
Massage therapy relieves tension from muscles while reducing compression on pinched nerves. This therapy also increases blood circulation.
Corrective exercises strengthen muscles around the spinal cord, creating a support structure to protect them and enhance the healing of the nerves and soft connective tissues.

Heat and cold therapies alleviate back pain by using hot or cold packs to decrease inflammation, pain, and constriction on tissues, muscles, and nerves. It also improves blood circulation.
Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy is gently applied to a problem area. This therapy increases blood circulation to the cells, promoting the body's natural healing process.
