Back pain can affect anyone at any stage in their life, ranging from a sudden spike to an ongoing problem that appears over several months, or from a mild, manageable condition to an unbearable pain that can affect day-to-day activities. No matter where you fall on the scale, you should not just grit your teeth and tough it out. No one should have to live with their pain. You need the right back pain treatment to ensure a happier, healthier future, and we at Natural Wellness and Chiropractic Clinic are ready to help you.
A chiropractor can diagnose your condition through your medical background, a physical and visual examination, along with any imaging scans, blood tests, urine tests, or other lab tests you may have had previously. Chiropractic can be considered a direct, hands-on approach to back pain treatment, with a strong focus on the totality of your musculoskeletal system, including your muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, and discs. Chiropractors treat back pain through musculoskeletal manipulation and alignment in order to bring pain relief and stimulate the body’s self-healing capabilities. Aside from back pain, neck pain and headaches are also common conditions that chiropractic care resolves, as it can reduce pressure on the central nervous system.
A good chiropractor will also incorporate your nutrition and lifestyle habits, including exercise, into your treatment plan as the ultimate goal of chiropractic care is to maintain a healthy body and prevent pain from returning in the future.
While some may be unfamiliar with chiropractic care and are thus skeptical, it is generally considered a safe and effective back pain treatment. Chiropractors are required to be licensed in order to practice, and they go through four years of training and an additional two to three years of residency for those that specialize in certain areas. They have the knowledge and experience in order to address your problems.
Back pain treatment usually involves medication, physical therapy, or in serious cases, surgery. Medication can range from over-the-counter (OTC) pain relievers, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) muscle relaxants, topical pain relievers, narcotics, and antidepressants. Some of these may be unable to relieve the pain or come with side effects such as dizziness or sleepiness.
Physical therapy involves exercises that increase flexibility, strengthen muscles, and improve posture, as taught by a physical therapist. Using these techniques can help prevent pain, but requires a lot of learning and discipline from the patient.
In the case that the back pain does not respond favorably to other treatment, surgery and other invasive procedures, such as cortisone injections, radiofrequency neurotomy, and implanted nerve stimulators, may be considered.
If you are worried about undergoing surgery or have underlying health complications that prevent you from taking medication, the best treatment for your lower back pain is chiropractic care.
