Mechanical back pain hampers athletes in Fremont
Mechanical back pain is a blanket term that applies to any pain or dysfunction related to the spine and the supporting structures and musculature. The most common mechanical back pain in sports involves joints of the spine moving out of place. Misalignment of the spine contributes to the following problems for athletes:
- Lost range of motion
- Pain caused by nerve compression
- Muscular imbalance and pain
And if you are pushing for the top of your game, you can't afford a single one of these drawbacks. Read on to find out how we treat mechanical back pain for athletes in the Fremont area.
Are your spinal joints causing you pain?
Your joints are made to move. When they are unable to move fully or properly, problems begin to mount. Misalignment of the spinal joints can lead to herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, spinal fractures and a host of other conditions that will keep you sidelined for longer than a simple misalignment. At our office in Fremont, we perform a full physical examination to determine what level of your spine is misaligned before we set a course for treatment.

Utilizing chiropractic adjustment, deep tissue and heat therapies, and corrective exercise to reduce pain and maximize mobility.
