Back Pain Treatment in Kansas City

Are you experiencing back pain?

Back Pain can be caused by stress, muscular tension, lifestyle factors, poor posture, disc irritation, and irritated nerves. Back pain is often the result of improper posture and stabilization unless acute trauma has occurred. Poor breathing strategies do not allow the spine to properly stabilize causing other muscles to overcompensate leading to back pain.

Common treatments for back pain vary depending on the causative factors. Evidence based treatment protocols are vital for long lasting beneficial effects. Leading soft tissue therapies for the back include A.R.T., Dry Needling, and Graston.
