Back Pain Treatment in Santa Barbara

Casual man with back painIf you’re tired of living with back pain, you’re not alone. In fact, back pain is a common problem that affects many people. At Bissell Clinic, we know its impact on your daily life and are here to help you get the relief you deserve.


A Guide to Relief and Recovery

Back pain may occur in different areas of the back—the lower back (lumbar), middle back (thoracic), or even the shoulder blade area. Understanding the specific cause of your back pain is essential to develop a plan tailored to your needs.

The most common types we see in our practice include:

  • Muscle Strains and Sprains—these occur when the muscles, tendons, or ligaments in your back become strained or sprained due to improper lifting or sudden movements.
  • Mechanical Back Pain—a misalignment of the vertebrae may lead to mechanical back pain. Our chiropractic adjustments are specifically designed to address this type of discomfort.
  • Disc Issues—a bulging or herniated disc may cause intense back pain. Our advanced methods, including electric muscle stimulation and decompression therapy, help support the healing and restoration of affected discs.
  • Arthritic Flare-ups—arthritis may cause inflammation and pain in the back. Our care plans incorporate therapies designed to manage and alleviate your arthritic symptoms.
  • Shoulder Blade Pain—a misalignment of the ribs may cause pain in this area. We address this issue to provide comprehensive relief.

Tailored Care for Lasting Relief

At Bissell Clinic, our approach to relieving back pain addresses your individual needs and systematically brings you long-lasting relief. Here’s how we do it:
  • Customized Care Plans—each patient is unique, and their goals for recovery differ. That’s why we tailor plans combining various therapies, such as chiropractic adjustments, electric muscle stimulation, ultrasound, shockwave, and decompression therapy.
  • Holistic Approach—we believe in aligning with your philosophy of care. That’s why, in addition to natural options for pain management, we may refer you to your primary care for traditional services when necessary. Together, we’ll find the best course of action that suits your preferences and promotes healing.

At-Home Care

Empowering our patients with knowledge and self-care techniques is crucial for long-term pain management. Here are some tips to help you manage your back pain at home:

  • Natural Anti-inflammatories—incorporating anti-inflammatory foods like turmeric into your diet may provide natural relief.
  • Heat and Ice Therapy—applying heat or ice to the affected area may reduce inflammation and provide temporary relief.
  • Proper Stretching—gentle stretching exercises tailored to your condition help alleviate pain and improve flexibility.
  • Lifestyle Adjustments—our team will guide you on modifying certain activities to minimize pain, ensuring you can continue to enjoy your daily routines with ease.
