There are few conditions more debilitating than chronic back pain. Whether acute back pain or chronic back pain, if you are suffering from pain in your lower back, upper back, or neck, you deserve relief. Our experienced chiropractor at Kouimanis Chiropractic can assess your situation to get a better understanding of the cause of your back pain and implement treatment options designed to alleviate your discomfort.
Serious back pain can be caused by a number of different conditions and ailments. According to the Mayo Clinic, some of the most common causes of back pain include:
Of course, back pain could also be the result of an acute back injury that occurs from lifting something too heavy, slipping and falling, or being involved in a car accident, and more. When you come in to see our chiropractor, be sure to provide as much information about the source of your injury as possible – the more we know about the cause of your injury, the more effective our treatment approach can be.
Living with back pain can truly be something that shapes your life, as your pain may prevent you from doing things that you love, things that you need to do, and perhaps even going to work. In fact, not only can a back injury cause pain in the back, but you may also experience radiating pain to your legs, shoulders, or arms; weakness in your extremities; headaches; and bowel problems. When pain is persistent, especially when it is accompanied by symptoms other than pain alone, you need to see a doctor and seek relief immediately.
Not only is chiropractic care used to treat back pain, but it is also used to diagnose back pain, which can be essential in implementing effective strategies to mitigate future pain.
The foundation of chiropractic care is a hands-on adjustment of the spine, as explained by MedlinePlus. During your first visit to Kouimanis Chiropractic, you will discuss your symptoms with Dr. Steven Kouimanis. You will also review a number of different elements of your health with our chiropractor, including your stress and activity levels, diet and exercise, health history, sleep habits, any injuries you’ve suffered, medications you’re taking, and more. Getting a full picture of your health will be critical in effective treatment. You will also undergo a physical exam to determine your range of motion and mobility in the spine. You may also be asked to undergo any relevant tests, like an x-ray or checking your blood pressure.
On the following visit to Kouimanis Chiropractic, treatment will ensue. The most common treatment–spinal manipulation–will be done by hand. You may also be asked about other treatment options, ranging from massage to lifestyle changes and more.

I finally have a better quality of life after 4 years of pain. Although I've spent thousands in treatments covered and not covered under insurance I was beginning to think I would be dependent on pain meds for the rest of my life.
