80% of the population experiences back or neck pain at some point in their lives. Fortunately, most patients find relief in effective, natural treatments that alleviate their pain.
There are many causes of back pain; the most common being mechanical in nature, which may stem from muscles, the supporting ligaments of the spine, spinal joints or discs of the spine. More serious conditions may cause back pain as a result of sciatica, arthritis, or degenerative disc disease.

How can Momentum Chiropractic Wellness Help?

At Momentum Chiropractic & Wellness, our goal is to determine the root cause of your symptoms in order to provide the most effective treatment possible.  Dr. Sarah Wu will ask you a series of questions to review your specific problem and perform appropriate orthopedic tests (a variety of physical movements) to determine if chiropractic is appropriate for your condition.  In certain situations, you will be advised as to the need diagnostic imaging such as x-rays.  At the completion of the initial assessment, we will discuss the findings of your exam and suggest an appropriate course of therapy.

Treatment for back and neck pain may include chiropractic care, therapeutic ultrasound, as well as guidance for home exercises. Most back pain can be prevented by keeping the back muscles flexible and strong, improving posture, avoiding unnecessary strain and learning to bend and lift correctly.
