For runners, the most common cause of back pain is a muscular strain. To relieve the low back pain caused by running, a chiropractor uses gentle manipulation and adjustment techniques to free stiff joints, restore normal movement, and eliminate spinal irritation. Modalities such as ultrasound and interferential treatment may also be used. Chiropractic treatment is usually painless, although little pain and discomfort around the affected area may be felt, but these would last for only a short period of time.
Before you go back to running, consider some simple things to prevent the pain from coming back. Start off with some simple stretches before and after running. Work with your feet by rolling it for a smoother stride. Keep a proper posture when you run where your head and back must be perfectly aligned. And also, consider wearing running shoes that can really provide the best support. To know more contact Dr. Steve Minors or visit www.rehabfx.com now.
