How Spinal Spurs Can Contribute to Back Pain

Spinal spurs are bony growths, typically near a joint. These types of spurs generally develop slowly, as they go along with arthritic conditions. Spinal spurs can cause narrowing in your spinal canal, and compress nerve endings so that you have pain. There are times when spinal spurs impede movement, and make it more difficult for you to get exercise. At Kosak Chiropractic Auto Accident & Pain Clinic in Fairfield, CA, Dr. Michael Wilson works with patients who are dealing with back pain and stiffness, who are diagnosed with spinal spurs.

Treatment for Spinal Spurs and Back Pain

Chiropractic care can ease the strain on nerve endings, and help to stretch out a compressed space. When you are diagnosed with spinal spurs, treatment can help ease the compression on nerve root endings, and improve your posture. Your chiropractor will look to restore flexibility, and help you build up the strength you need to maintain good posture. You will see the chiropractor several times a week in the early stages of treatment, as this is your best chance at recovering from the pain brought on by spinal spurs.

What to Expect In Chiropractic Treatment

A chiropractor may use spinal adjustments to get your spine into alignment, and ease the strain on any compressed areas. Treatment may include hot or cold therapies, soft tissue mobilization, stretching, and home exercises to improve your strength slowly over time. While you can't cure an osteophyte, or spinal spur, you can get treatment that reduces the impact that spinal spurs are having on your overall health. Treatment should be consistent to help you build up strength slowly, and gain flexibility that doesn't cause you pain.
