If you’ve been experiencing any type of back pain - sharp stabbing pain, dull ache, stiffness, numbness, tingle, or burning sensation, it makes everything about your day more difficult. But this pain isn’t only affecting your daily routine; it’s also affecting the overall quality of your life. It makes everyday activities difficult, from getting out of bed to playing with your kids. Whether it’s severe lower back pain or minor discomfort in your mid-back, you want relief. You deserve relief. Taking pain relief medication isn’t going to be enough. There’s a better way.

Can a Chiropractor Help With Back Pain?
Yes, and they can do it without the use of pain medications or invasive treatment methods.
A chiropractor offers a holistic, whole-body approach with a variety of safe, non-invasive, and drug-free treatments that will give you the relief you are looking for. This can all be done without taking habit-forming pain medication just to function. Pain medication is sometimes necessary, but you’ll never fully recover when you are using it as your only form of treatment. Natural back pain relief is possible with chiropractic care, and after just a few short visits, you’ll begin to notice the difference in your pain and an improvement in your overall health.
Stress and Back Pain
Did you know that stress also plays a major role in back pain? When you are in a constant state of stress, your body releases hormones that cause your muscles to tense, and as a result of this tension, you experience back pain. While stress may be unavoidable, treating back pain is not.
When Should You See A Chiropractor For Your Back Pain?
If you’ve been having a hard time managing your back pain, you should probably schedule an appointment with a chiropractor. Here are some additional symptoms that require a visit,
- Pain that is intense and constant and gets worse when laying down or at night.
- Pain radiates down one or both legs.
- You have a weakness, tingling, or numbness in any or both legs.

What Should I Expect At My Visit?
Your first visit will be longer than normal. Dr. Wieland will take the time to understand and learn about your back pain - when it started, any treatments you’ve tried. He’ll also learn about your medical history, take some X-rays, and if necessary, He’ll do additional testing such as range of movement, posture, and muscle strength.
After evaluating your condition, Dr. Wieland will create a treatment plan so that you can finally get relief. This plan will depend on the severity of your issues. It may include an adjustment with strengthening exercises, stretches, massage, soft tissue healing, and other types of treatments that will generally last between two to four weeks.
Getting back to living your life pain-free is just a phone call away.
