Back Pain Q & A

What are the common causes of back pain?

Back pain can result from a range of factors. These include: 

  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Facet Syndrome
  • Muscle strains
  • Ligament sprains
  • Herniated discs
  • Degenerative conditions like arthritis
  • Spinal misalignments 

Poor posture, sedentary lifestyles, and heavy lifting can also contribute to back pain. Dr. Shemansky uses his expertise to identify the specific cause of your back pain so he can create an effective treatment plan.


How can chiropractic care help with back pain?

Chiropractic care offers a non-invasive and drug-free approach to managing back pain. The body works well when all parts are in their proper place.

Dr. Shemansky uses hands-on spinal adjustments to correct misalignments and promote proper spinal alignment. This can alleviate pressure on nerves, reduce inflammation, and improve the body's natural healing mechanisms, leading to pain relief and improved function.

He also employs advanced approaches including physical therapy, physician-assisted stretching, and trigger point therapy to relieve pain. Trigger point therapy releases areas of tension across your back to release tight knots and improve your range of motion. 

What should I expect during a chiropractic visit for back pain?

During your initial visit, Dr. Shemansky conducts a comprehensive evaluation, which may include a physical examination, a review of your medical history, and possibly imaging tests. Based on the findings, he designs a personalized treatment plan to address your back pain. 

He’ll recommend chiropractic adjustments and other therapies to facilitate healing
and alleviate discomfort.

How long does it take to see results from chiropractic care for back pain?

The duration of relief and improvement varies depending on the severity and cause of your back pain. Some patients experience immediate relief after a chiropractic adjustment, while others may require multiple sessions to achieve long-term results. Dr. Shemansky wants to alleviate your immediate symptoms and also address the root cause of your back pain so you get lasting relief.

Can chiropractic care prevent back pain in the future?

Chiropractic care is not only about treating existing pain but also promoting overall spinal health to prevent future issues. Regular chiropractic visits can help maintain proper spinal alignment, improve posture, and enhance musculoskeletal function, reducing the risk of recurring back pain.
