Back Pain

Chiropractic Treatment for Back Pain

Living with back pain can make basic everyday tasks far more difficult to do. People often think the solution to this ailment is either surgery, medication, or just ignoring it. However, chiropractic care is a non-invasive treatment option to relieve back pain and to help live without discomfort. Here at East Detroit Chiropractic Center in Clinton Township, our team is committed to helping you eliminate your back pain, so you can live comfortably.

Causes of Back Pain

Auto accident - Car accidents can severely injure your spine, including herniated and bulging discs. Sudden impacts can push the discs out of alignment and can even cause a rupture of the disc. This leads to the gel inside the disc to leak out and cause nerve pain. Your back is the center where nerves, muscles, and ligaments come together and can easily be injured in a car accident. This leads to severe pain and limited motion in the body. Sudden jerking movements and impact can cause fractures in the spine and the facet joints. We offer help for whiplash with our training in whiplash traumatology.

Sciatica - Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve is pinched or irritated. This causes shooting pains from the buttocks down the leg. A spinal misalignment can lead to sciatica. This happens when the structures in the hip and lower back compress the sciatic nerve, which leads to irritation and inflammation. Chiropractic adjustments work to properly realign the spine by removing pressure from the sciatic nerve. In some cases, sciatica is caused by a herniated or slipped disk or by narrowing of the spinal canal.

Poor posture - With more people working from home, neck and back pain is quickly on the rise. Most people don’t pay attention to their posture in the comfort of their own space. The act of looking down at a smartphone also puts pressure on the neck vertebra and surrounding soft tissues. Our team will work with you to correct your posture and help to alleviate whatever back pain you are experiencing. 

How We Can Help

At East Detroit Chiropractic Center, we offer several different types of ways to adjust your spine to help with back pain. These include instrument adjusting, drop table adjustments, spinal decompression and specific hands-on adjustments. Treatment for pain associated with spinal injuries or disorders does not need to be invasive. Our treatment is non-invasive and frequently painless. We employ specific hands-on or instrument adjustments on the body to release the pressure that causes pain in certain areas. Gradually, discs are freed from nerve interference helping to alleviate nerve pain. Through consistent treatment and attention, mobility starts to return and pain begins to cease.

  • "Dr. DiMasi puts the skip back into my steps. He takes the time to make sure you are adjusted perfectly. I highly recommend him."
    Gayle C. Roseville, MI
  • "Dr. DiMasi has been treating me off and on for quite a few years. I have had problems with my neck for years. When I first started going to Dr. DiMasi, I really did not have much faith in chiropractors, but I am now a believer. I could not turn my neck without pain. I could not turn my neck when backing out of my car. After just 2 visits, my neck was greatly improved. Now when I feel a twinge, I see Dr. DiMasi. He is not only a great chiropractor, but a good person. I cannot say enough good things about him or his staff; (they are) always pleasant."
