Millions of Americans suffer from back pain due to accidents, injuries, and medical conditions. Some of the conditions that cause back pain include the following:
Dr. Rozenberg diagnoses the cause of back pain with an examination, which includes a range of motion test, orthopedic tests, muscle tests, and neurological test. During the exam, passive movements are used to pinpoint pain sources, and patients may be asked to perform simple exercises as well. Dr. Rozenberg may use diagnostic imaging tools including x-rays, MRIs, and CT scans.
Chiropractic treatments including adjustments and soft tissue massage of the treatment area can help to strengthen the muscles of the back to relieve pain and prevent the injury from recurring.
