Upper Back Tension Relief in Saskatoon

For many of us, upper back tension is a fact of life. Sitting all day at a desk, hunched over our work, creates mechanical issues in the upper back that lead to tension, stiffness, and pain. You might try to “stretch it out” or take a pain reliever to ease the discomfort, but unless the underlying joint dysfunction is addressed, the familiar pain keeps coming back.

At Freedom Chiropractic, we offer a thorough, individualized approach to address the specific mechanical issues contributing to your unique pain—so you can enjoy life without the annoying pain holding you back!

Dr. Swystun has 25 years’ experience and is Advanced Proficiency rated in Activator Methods®, which is a highly precise method of analysis and adjustment. Using this protocol, he can identify the specific areas of joint dysfunction that are contributing to your pain and correct them using precision chiropractic adjustments.

We begin with a thorough history and examination to look into lifestyle stresses, postural issues, and the biomechanical dysfunctions in your situation. We’ll focus on the alignment and mechanics of the correlating joints in the upper back, ribcage, shoulder blades, and neck to identify any areas that need correcting.

If lifestyle and postural issues contribute to your discomfort, Dr. Swystun will offer recommendations for changes you can make to improve your overall biomechanics.

Your chiropractic adjustments will be performed using the Activator instrument, which delivers high-speed, low-force adjustments without twisting, cracking, or popping. Using this instrument allows Dr. Swystun to make extremely precise adjustments to just the joints that need it.

Feeling Better

Healing takes time; for many, sitting in an office all day, every day is something that can’t be changed. Making postural changes and getting chiropractic care regularly can help offset the stress that leads to the nagging pain in your upper back. It takes one to four weeks for most patients to experience relief. We’ll monitor your progress and tailor your care accordingly.
