Spinal pain can greatly affect your daily life and make even the simplest of tasks more difficult. Your spine is designed to handle normal stretching and compressive forces, but excessive or repetitive forces can injure some of the small joints, which can cause cartilage damage, tearing of ligaments, muscle spasms or loss of joint motion. This type of damage creates a spinal joint injury or sprain and, much like any other sprain, is often accompanied by swelling, stiffness and pain.
The spinal joint injury is one of the most common sources of neck and back pain. They can occur in the following three areas:
- Neck (Cervical Spine)
- Upper back (Thoracic Spine)
- Lower back (Lumbar Spine and Sacro-iliac Joints)
Causes of Spinal Joint Injuries
Spinal joint injuries are rather common and can sometimes happen suddenly or by stress that builds up over time. Most occur in one of these three ways:
- Pain occurs suddenly after specific stress or strain, such as improperly lifting a heavy item
- A build-up of pain or stiffness happens gradually over time caused by repetitive stress
- Pain occurs after what seemed to be an innocent movement but was really caused by underlying, existing joint weakness
Spinal Injury Treatment in Etobicoke
From medical research, we have learned that spinal injuries recover most effectively though treatment with spinal mobilization and adjustments in combination with appropriate exercises. The Chiropractic adjustments help to restore proper motion to the injured joints, and the therapeutic exercises help to strengthen the damaged muscles, thus providing pain relief.
In order to treat the spinal injury and provide pain relief optimally, the treatment is carried out in a phased manner. The initial phase for back or neck pain treatment in our Etobicoke clinic focuses on reducing the inflammation and the tissue injury. Symptoms of spinal injury can be significantly improved in two to three weeks with proper treatment and exercises. After the initial phase of treatment, the therapy begins to focus more on restoring full movement to the injured joint. This is an important part in the process, as doing so will strengthen the joint and make it less prone to similar injuries in the future.
The time frame of recovery will depend on other factors; such as length of time from the original injury, the extent of tissue damage, whether degeneration or arthritis is present and age of the person.
There are numerous types of headaches. The most common forms are tension headaches and migraines. There are many triggers to these types of headaches.
But, common factors are injury, stress or irritation to the spinal joints, muscles or nerves of the neck. Common causes are postural strain, trauma from car accidents or degeneration processes. There are nerves in the neck that supply the muscles and blood vessels of the head.
Irritations to these nerves can transfer the pain up into the head. Chiropractic Treatment by Dr. Allan Ettenson can greatly improve an injured neck, which can subsequently greatly reduce the intensity and frequency of headaches, providing much-needed pain relief.
