Non-Surgical Recovery from Back Pain
Back pain can manifest itself in various ways to cause pain, irritation and lack of range of motion in the body. Back pain affects approximately three million people in the United States annually! It is important to keep the spine healthy as it is the center of the body and connects to everything – either directly or via the nervous system. Chiropractic care can help keep patients to live pain-free regardless of their lifestyle.
Stop Living with Back Pain:
Upper and middle back pain may be caused by muscle or ligament strains, poor posture and damage or tension involving the discs in the spinal column. This can happen very easily to people who work at a desk five days a week! It can also occur from pressure on the spinal nerves from certain problems such as a herniated disc.
Low back pain is usually caused by strains or sprains from improper lifting, poor posture, lack of regular exercise, fracture, ruptured disk or arthritis. It is important to be mindful of the body and how it is positioned during daily tasks to avoid injury. But sometimes, almost seemingly at random, back pain can strike, causing pain, discomfort and decreased quality of life.
Common Symptoms Associate with Chronic or Acute Back Pain:
- Numbness or tingling
- Radiating or sharp, shooting pain
- Severe pain that does not improve after resting
- Pain after a fall or an injury
Chiropractic Care Promotes Longevity and Reduces Pain:
Chiropractic care is a painless, low-risk and non-invasive treatment that can have lasting results with regular care. With gentle manipulation and other techniques, the body can be aligned and pain can be reduced or eliminated depending on the condition. By using varying body positions and hands-on techniques, the vertebrae in the spine will be adjusted back to their proper place within the body. This will allow the nervous system to function optimally and allows the spinal column to deliver water, blood and nutrients to the body. This will help the patient to heal and keep the body functioning at its best with regular care.
After a few sessions, many patients report feeling relief. Depending on the condition, previous ailments and other factors, the time it takes to reduce or eliminate pain may vary. It is important to regularly visit your chiropractor to see lasting results.
