Help Ease Your Back Pain
It seems everyone has an incident leading to back pain. It’s known to be one of the most common medical issues in the United States. While some back pain can be minor or acute, usually healing within six weeks or so, it can also lasts much longer. If your back pain persists longer than three months, it is then considered severe, or chronic. At Chiropractic Partners, our mission is to help restore your health and wellness by returning you back to your life in a holistic and safe manner.
Pain – What’s the Cause?
There are a variety of causes for back pain from the minor to severe. The most common causes are due to overstraining the back muscles and ligaments usually from wrong lifting, bending or twisting. Even poor posture can lead to back pain. More serious causes could be:
- Rupture Disks
- Bulging Disks
- Kidney problems
- Posture related
- Work or Auto injury
Getting Back Pain Relief
In minor back pain cases, the pain goes away with an at-home treatment of hot and cold therapy or some specific exercises. If the pain lasts longer and some "home remedies" are not providing relief a visit back to your primary doctor may be advised. X- rays, MRI’s and blood tests might be done to discover the problem. Your medical doctor could prescribe stronger medications to help alleviate the pain. Pain-relieving creams or over the counter meds, if prescribed by your primary doctor, can also be a beneficial treatment. If all else fails, there are injections that can be done that inject a medication that numbs around the spinal cord area. The injections last a few months and then you have to go back to get another one. Bottom line is opioids, pain killers, injections, etc... may provide relief, but temporary. We advise you to rethink your pain with chiropractic care from our team at Chiropractic Partners. We can discuss pain relieving options with you at your consultation and help provide a solution. This plan is customized just for you!
