What to Expect For A Back Pain Treatment Plan
When you come for your first visit, we'll take the following steps to help treat your back pain:
Initial consultation exam. During the initial consultation, we'll diagnose your condition, talk about the various causes of your back pain, and discuss potential treatments.
Electric muscle stimulation. We use this technique to administer electronic current to the injured area. Electric muscle stimulation helps heal the injury and relieve the most intense pain.
Ultrasounds. We use ultrasound to relax and stimulate the injured areas of the body. Ultrasound can reduce pain, increase blood flow and encourage healing.
Spinal adjustments. Our spinal adjustments realign the vertebrae of the spine and relieve pressure on the joints of the back. Spinal adjustments reduce lower back pain, help correct postural problems and reduce inflammation. Spinal adjustment are the cornerstone of chiropractic care, and are used to treat back and neck conditions ranging from whiplash to sciatica.
Additional Back Pain Relief Services
We provide the following additional services to help relieve back pain and treat back injuries:
Massage therapy. Massage therapy helps to increase blood flow to injured parts of the spine. This technique also helps loosen stiff muscles and reduce muscle tension.
Lifestyle advice. Our lifestyle advice helps our patients stop behaviors that lead to chronic pain. We teach our patients how to sleep, work and play in ways that can help them avoid injuries.
Nutrition counseling. Our nutrition counseling services help our patients eat right, which can help them reach their target weight and avoid weight gain. Since weight gain can contribute to back problems and can make exercise more difficult, our nutrition counseling services helps our patients stay healthier and avoid back pain overall.

Our chiropractor, Dr. Steve Sweeney , approaches back pain treatment in Midwest City in a holistic way that combines chiropractic treatments, nutrition, and exercise advice so that your visits to the chiropractor in OKC is well worth your while. Our methods are non-invasive, and treatment is done without the need for medications in most cases. Here are some of the common causes of back pain that we can provide relief for,
Sacroiliac SI Joint Pain - It is suspected that sacroiliac joint pain is caused by the movement of that joint in a way other than how it is supposed to move. Pain may be felt because of too much or too little movement. Too little movement is felt in the lower back or buttocks and can extend into the leg, similar to sciatica. If too much movement occurs, pain goes to the lower back and hip and moves to the groin area.
Myofascial or Muscle Pain - Myofascial pain is muscle pain caused by injury to muscle fibers either through lack of activity or repetitive motion. The pain occurs when soft tissues (fascia) within a muscle group become inflamed and triggers the myofascial pain generator. The trigger point may or may not be located near the actual site of the pain.
Pinched Nerve and Disc Bulge -The bones in the spine are cushioned by flat discs, that can become bulged or broken due to wear and tear or a specific injury. The damaged or herniated disc then presses on a nerve root. The resulting pain, numbness, or tingling is often described as a pinched nerve.
Scoliosis - Scoliosis is a condition caused by a curved spine and may be structural or nonstructural. Structural scoliosis is often related to a birth defect of a genetic condition, and is not reversible. With nonstructural scoliosis, the spine looks curved, but functions normally. It is a side effect of other problems, such as muscle spasms and inflammation. The wearing out of discs and joints in the back can cause degenerative scoliosis.
Sciatica - Sciatica pain occurs in the lower back and radiates down the leg due to the pinching of the sciatic nerve.
Lumbar Muscle Strain - Is another way to say lower back muscle strain, and it occurs because the lower back carries much of a person's body weight, as well as other weight that they might be carrying. Muscle tissues tear when they are strained too far, causing pain. Heavy lifting, being overweight, falling, and physical over- exertion can all result in lower back pain.
