Back Pain

Back Pain Relief the Natural Way with Our Utica and New Hartford Chiropractor

Did you know the lifetime prevalence of back pain is around 70 percent? What this means is, 7 out of 10 people will have at least one episode of upper, middle, or lower back pain throughout their lives. At New Hartford Chiropractic, we have provided residents of Utica and New Hartford, NY, with natural and effective back pain treatment for many years. We invite you to come see how we can offer you a holistic approach to your spinal health and healing. 


Understanding Back Pain: Causes, Risk Factors, and Symptoms

Back pain is often caused by muscle spasms and strains, ligament sprains, vertebral joint dislocations or misalignments, nerve compression (e.g., sciatica or radiculopathy), osteoarthritis, degenerative disc disease, disc herniation or disc bulge, or even other conditions like fibromyalgia. You may be more likely to have back pain if you have any of the leading risk factors, including poor posture, advancing age, a physically demanding job or hobby, a sedentary lifestyle, a traumatic incident or injury, obesity, or even a smoking habit!

Symptoms of back pain syndromes of course vary, but they often include:

  • Dull, boring, achy, throbbing, sharp, or shooting pain
  • Muscle spasms 
  • Stiffness in the spine
  • Pain that travels down an extremity or into the buttocks and groin
  • Other signs of nerve involvement, including weakness and numbness or tingling in a leg or arm

How Our Chiropractor Manages Back Pain

One of the tricky things about back pain is that it's not one specific disease, so there's no single type of treatment that will be right for everyone. What our chiropractor knows from research and professional experience is that invasive procedures like surgery and long-term use of pricey medications are rarely the best choices.

The following chiropractic services are frequently offered to our patients with back pain. These techniques provide symptom relief but can also address and alleviate the underlying causes of your back pain, for better and longer-lasting outcomes:

  • Spinal adjustments (manual and instrument-assisted)
  • Exercises and stretches
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Non-invasive modalities including cold laser therapy

These services are always customized to meet each patient's unique body, needs, goals, and preferences. Our chiropractor and the rest of our team take a team approach to back pain care and place our patients at the center of the team.
