Most people understand that getting a fever is the result of an infection, because a fever is a symptom of an infection. In the same way, back muscle spasms are a symptom of a back problem, not the cause of a back problem. The underlying back problem is most likely caused by nerve irritation, a problem with a joint in the spine, or an issue with one of the discs in between the bones of the spine. So the muscle spasm is a symptom of a deeper problem that needs fixed. Your chiropractor will first try to pinpoint the source of your back muscle spasms and will then begin correcting the cause of the back problem. This will enable your back to heal correctly.
After chiropractic treatment, our patients have reported the following: decreased muscle stiffness, reduction of back pain, relief from muscle spasms, reduction of headache pain, ease of movement, increased coordination, and the ability to relax more easily and sleep better at night.
Although it is possible to feel immediate improvement after your very first chiropractic treatment, for the majority of people improvement is gradual. The speed of healing and recovery usually varies for each person. If you have questions about chiropractic, our Flagler Beach chiropractors will be happy to speak with you.

The main forms of joint disease and joint problems are Osteoarthritis, Fibromyalgia, Gout and Rheumatoid Arthritis. The most common form of arthritis is Osteoarthritis. This is the type of arthritis that is age related and affects people as they grow older. Osteoarthritis progresses over time as the cartilage that cushions various joints in the body loses elasticity and erodes away. Swelling, pain and stiffness are the major symptoms of Osteoarthritis. When the body realizes the imbalance in the joint it attempts to stabilize the affected area by forming extra deposits of bone. These bony formations are called osteophytes or bone spurs. Osteoarthritis can cause knee pain, hand pain, hip pain and spine pain in older adults. Rarely is Osteoarthritis observed in young adults except in the case of severe trauma (such as from a car accident or bone fracture), or sport injuries (where joints, ligaments, and cartilage may be torn or damaged)...

Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (IAS) is an abnormal curving of the backbone that can begin affecting young people when they are 10 and 11 years of age, and can progress throughout their teenage years. This type of scoliosis can affect 4 out of every 100 teens, and more commonly targets girls. Although a slight curve in the spine has little impact on a person’s health, for some people the scoliosis continues to advance until internal organs such as the heart and lungs risk becoming compressed. Extensive surgery then becomes necessary... (Learn about scoliosis)
If you’ve never before experienced a backache, then consider yourself very fortunate. Most adults have had at least a couple incidents of back pain in their lives. You can easily strain your back by doing yard work when you’re tired, driving in a vehicle for too many hours, bending and lifting incorrectly, or falling asleep in an unusual position. Sometimes you can injure your back while participating in sports. The good news is that most backaches heal just fine on their own. The bad news is that the injured muscles can take a while to heal, giving you several days of pain, frustration, and limited mobility. Luckily there are several natural home remedies for backaches. Most of these remedies focus on getting muscle spasms to relax, soothing the injured back muscles, and decreasing swelling and inflammation... (More natural home remedies for backaches)
In today’s fast paced world of computers and advanced technology, people are texting, blogging, typing on keypads, emailing, and using social media more than they ever would have dreamed of ten years ago. As a result, chiropractic clinics and doctor’s offices are treating increased numbers of people for a painful condition that causes wrist pain and hand pain called Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. For many people, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can be treated by taking a break from activities which irritate the wrist and hand, and by receiving natural treatment through massage, chiropractic, and acupuncture. Unfortunately, some people show symptoms of this disorder for months and even years before they seek professional treatment. For these individuals, symptoms can progress from numbness and muscle aches to sharp pain, muscle atrophy, and eventually Carpal Tunnel surgery. Are you familiar with the warning signs of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?... (More about Carpal Tunnel)
