If you have been suffering from chronic pain and need relief, Mississauga chiropractor Dr. Serge Lanoue and his team may be your answer. Almost one third of the population lives with some sort of chronic or acute neck and/or back pain. People that suffer with this type of pain frequently resort to using common pain relief medications such as Aspirin and ibuprofen, or go to their doctor for a prescription pain reliever. When taking these medications over an extended period of time, they can sometimes cause unwanted side effects. Dr. Lanoue's chiropractic centre offers effective neck and back pain relief through a variety of chiropractic techniques, tools, and methods.
Mississauga Chiropractor for Neck and Back Pain
What Does a Chiropractor Do For Lower Back Pain?
Lower back pain is one of the most common complaints we receive at our Mississauga chiropractic centre. Nearly 80% of adults experience low back pain at some point in their lifetimes. Often the result of an injury, lower back pain can also stem from a sedentary lifestyle (such as working a desk job), poor form when lifting heavy objects, and many other root causes. As we age, our muscles tend to lose elasticity and our spines lose cushioning, ultimately leading to low back pain for many. Although chiropractic treatment for low back pain is highly individualized, it often involves some form of spinal manipulation or manual manipulation, otherwise known as a "chiropractic adjustment." In some cases, spinal mobilization may also be used to treat lower back pain. This is a more gentle chiropractic technique involving lower velocity stretching of the muscles and joints.
How Does a Chiropractor Adjust Your Neck?
Chiropractic neck adjustments provide much needed relief from many types of neck pain and back pain. During a neck adjustment, the chiropractor will gently manipulate the patient's neck in an attempt to relieve the built up pressure around the joints.
Patients asking "is chiropractic neck adjustment safe?" should know that Dr. Lanoue always performs a thorough assessment including in-depth screening of each patient in order to ensure that neck adjustment is safe for the individual prior to moving forward with the chiropractic treatment.
How Soon After a Car Accident Should I See a Chiropractor?
The head, back and neck are vulnerable to injury in car accidents. Seeking chiropractic care immediately after a car accident facilitates quicker healing and recovery. The effects of a car accident are not always realized in the days immediately following a crash. Pain can surface weeks or months later.
Whether you are living with lower back pain, fibromyalgia, or any other form of recurring pain, chiropractic treatment is a safe and effective method for treating chronic or acute pain. Depending on the type of pain you are suffering, Dr. Lanoue's chiropractic clinic offers personalized care to suit your needs.
