Back pain and lower back pain plagues millions of people on a daily basis, leaving most under the impression that medications or surgery is their only chance at relief. Although medication can bring relief, but at what cost? Most medications come with a long list of side effects and back surgery can be incredibly dangerous. At Healthy Back Chiropractic, we don’t want our patients to have to take those risks, which is why we focus on drug-free and surgery-free chiropractic solutions for back pain. This is done by shifting the focus from the symptoms themselves to the underlying causes contributing to them. In turn, this leads to long-term relief all without the use of dangerous medications or life-threatening surgeries.
Why is it so important to look at the underlying causes of back pain? Because no two people nor their back pain are exactly the same. It’s crucial to dig deep to find what’s really contributing to the symptoms, whether it’s issues from a past car accident or pressure from years of bad posture. There are hundreds of stressors that can contribute to pain in the back, so it’s impossible to give someone the quality of help they need without a thorough analysis of the body. This is especially true for those who have had back pain for years, as the stress on their back has likely been compounded into more serious issues that require attention as well.
Taking Back Pain Seriously
How often do you experience back pain? According to the American Journal of Medicine, this term is classified by someone who experiences chronic pain in the back that lasts longer than 4 weeks. If this sounds like what you’re suffering from, then it’s important to realize that this is something that will continuously worsen. Ignoring the issue will only allow it to get worse, which can eventually contribute to a damaged immune system, increased likelihood of injury, and even disrupted nerve flow causing intense pain.
Unfortunately, most people go to their doctor for help with back pain once they start feeling it, but this help is not as thorough as most would anticipate. Solutions like cortisone shots do reduce pain, but they are very temporary and can be dangerous. Even surgery, while occasionally successful, isn’t a cure because it’s very expensive and never guaranteed to get rid of the discomfort. There is simply no way to cure back pain unless the true root cause of it is actually addressed.
If you’re looking for an alternative form of care, then chiropractic care is it. Not only do we focus on finding that underlying cause of the pain, but we’re also drug-free and surgery-free. We work by focusing on each patient individually and can help with varying degrees of back pain from mild to severe. Next up, see our chiropractic services for arm and wrist pain
