Back Pain Relief in Sedalia

Woman with hands on backIs pain in your upper, mid or lower back slowing you down? Do you avoid certain activities because they’re too painful? Or maybe some things aren’t even possible for you. Back pain doesn’t have to hold you back from experiencing life to the fullest!

At Longie Chiropractic, we have over 45 years’ experience helping patients just like you get relief from pain and get back to living life on their terms—without limits.

What Causes Back Pain?

Anytime you have a misalignment of the spine, it causes pressure on the nearby nerves, which causes muscles to tighten up and become achy. The issue can be caused by injuries, falls, strain, stress or poor posture, and all of those stresses on the spine can cause spinal misalignments that result in pain.

Our Approach

We begin with a thorough evaluation, including spinal X-rays. Using X-rays is important because we never want to guess when it comes to your health! X-rays show us where misalignments are and, equally importantly, they can often reveal other health issues that need to be addressed.

Based on your specific situation, Dr. Rick will tailor a care plan to your needs. This will typically include intersegmental traction therapy to help restore movement to stuck joints, along with very specific spinal adjustments designed to correct alignment and take pressure off the nerves.

Dr. Rick uses a variety of gentle and precise adjusting techniques, which are customized to each patient’s particular situation. These techniques include Activator Methods®, Gonstead and Thompson Drop.

How Long Until I Experience Relief?

Every patient is different, and until we have a clear picture of what’s going on in your situation, we won’t be able to predict. However, most patients respond pretty quickly to our care, noticing relief within a few sessions.
