Intense Lasting Pain

Are you experiencing sharp pain that has persisted for over a week? If so, it is time visit our chiropractic at New Life Chiropractic. You should also make an appointment if you notice pain that is radiating down your legs. Pain hinder your from being able to participate in the physical activities you love, such as swimming. It also affects your ability to concentrate, which is important for all areas of your life, and treatment can help you return to your normal routine.

Loss of Bladder Control

When the spinal nerves are pinched, compressed, damaged, this could prevent normal bladder function. Since the upper back is part of the spinal column, there is a correlation between upper back pain and loss of bladder control, also known as urinary incontinence. Our chiropractor can help resolve this problem by realigning the spinal column in the upper back.

Muscle Tightness

Your upper back anchors muscles located around the chest area. Therefore, when problems occur in the upper back, the nerves controlling the muscles can be displaced or pressured. This ultimately leads to muscle tightness and cause discomfort. However, our chiropractor can provide treatment that can provide relief.  

Loss of Strength in Your Legs

If your upper back pain is also causing a tingling sensation in your legs, this could interfere with blood circulation. We suggest you visit our chiropractor immediately if the tingling lasts longer than a week.

Injury from Accident

Sometimes, after an accident, you may have pain that might not be as severe. However, the discomfort can worsen and cause complications if it is not treated. Seeing our chiropractor can prevent the pain from progressing and provide you with treatment.
