At The Chiropractic Wellness Studio we frequently treat male patients of all ages, heights and weights.
Back pain in men can sometimes originate from different causes than in women due to variation in men's body types, the line of work you are in and whether you are active or sedentary. Back pain in men can sometimes be a result of non-musculoskeletal causes. These causes could include things like kidney stones, prostate problems, osteoporosis or abdominal aortic aneurysms.
As licensed Doctors of Chiropractic, we are well trained to identify various causes of back pain in our male patients and to consider whether your back pain is a result of joint or muscle dysfunction or if the pain could be coming from other structures in a nearby region. We will take a thorough history during your first visit taking into consideration your age, the type of job you perform, previous history of back pain and the type of symptoms you are feeling at this time.
We are extremely comfortable and confident in working with male patients at our studio. Sometimes we have been questioned about our ability to successfully treat our male patients, being smaller female chiropractors.
Using the physics equation Force = Mass x Acceleration we can provide a simple explanation about how we use 'physics' every day in our practice to adjust patients who have greater mass and height than we do.
In order to generate the same force as a Chiropractor (for example a male chiropractor) who may be stronger or taller than we are, we take advantage of the known physics principle to find the correct level of pressure for our chiropractic adjustments. In order to generate a specific amount of Pressure (Force) with our adjustments we increase our adjusting speed (acceleration) to compensate for our smaller mass. You will find our adjustments to be 'quick', 'gentle' and extremely 'precise' based on the implementation of physics into our treatment methods.
If you are male and experiencing back pain we will conduct a thorough assessment and physical exam, will recommend the best plan of management in order to get you back on your feet and moving more easily again ~ no matter your age, height or size!
