Suffering from lower or upper back pain can severely impact one's ability to complete day-to-day tasks.

At Valdosta Chiropractic and Rehab, our family chiropractor, Dr. Lacie Guy, and the rest of our Valdosta staff are here to help residents feel some much-needed relief from back pain. Our chiropractor offers various non-invasive and natural techniques to alleviate the root cause of back pain and prevent it from reoccurring.
What Causes Back Pain?
There are a variety of causes of back pain. Some of the most common causes we treat at our clinic include:
- Strained or pulled muscles
- Overuse injuries
- Herniated discs
- Degenerative disc disease
- Spinal stenosis
- Personal, work, or sports injury
These issues can cause pain or discomfort in your back that prevents you from fully participating in daily life. Although your back pain may seem minor at first, it can lead to serious complications later in life if left untreated.
How A Chiropractor Can Help
Since there are so many causes for back pain, it's important to seek help from our chiropractor for the proper diagnosis and treatment. Our chiropractor will be able to determine the root cause of your back pain by running various tests. We may require certain imaging tests like x-rays or CT scans to diagnose the location and severity of your condition. Our pregnancy chiropractor will also be able to conduct a physical exam while keeping an eye out for pregnancy-related pain. After we determine the cause of your back pain, our chiropractic team will create a personalized treatment plan for your specific recovery needs.
Chiropractic treatments can include:
- Spinal decompression to reduce inflammation from herniated discs, sciatica, or spinal stenosis
- Manual adjustments to re-align the spine and musculoskeletal system
- Muscle stretches to improve mobility and reduce back pain from a sports injury or other injury
- Trigger point therapy to target specific painful areas of the back
These are just a few of the many treatments that we offer to reduce inflammation, promote healing of injuries causing back pain, and effectively reduce pain.
