Back pain is one of the most common causes of disability and prescriptions for pain medication, affecting millions of Americans every day. Dr. Key offers effective, drug-free structural chiropractic treatment to relieve acute or chronic back pain. Acute back pain occurs suddenly, typically following an accident or injury, which goes away as your body heals. For example, you might experience back pain after a car accident, slipping and falling, or after a sports injury. Chronic back pain can last for weeks, months, or even years. Chronic back pain may be linked to an injury but it also may be caused by degenerative diseases like osteoarthritis and/or untreated spinal alignment problems. Another contributing factor to back pain is obesity. Your spine is the central connection for your entire body, so not only does it bear your weight, but it bears the strain of every step you take.

Dr. Key provides each patient a customized treatment plan that may include chiropractic adjustments, some massage treatments, and stretches or exercises for you to practice at home to keep the supporting muscles supple and strong. Dr. Key’s treatment plan is built to treat the underlying issue responsible for your pain while also providing you with effective pain relief.
