Low Back Pain

Got Low back pain? You Don’t Have To Suffer Any Longer

Do you have back pain?

If you do, you are not alone. Around 80% of Americans will have some type of problem and experience back pain at some point in their life. There are many  reasons for back pain including:

  • Disc Herniations
  • Subluxations
  • Strains, Sprains and Spasms
  • Stress

It’s safe to say that the only way that you can know for sure what is causing your low back pain is to seek professional help. Proper diagnosis and correct treatment is the key to getting back to a pain free lifestyle.

Rest, taking pain medications and anti-inflammatories is not the answer

Traditional medical treatment is not very effective at treating low back conditions. The treatment doesn’t address the problem, but masks the symptoms. There’s no doubt that drugs are great for eliminating pain.

However, the pain might be temporarily gone, but the problem still remains. Not addressing the problem and numbing the pain can cause more damage and worsen the condition in the long run. I’m sure you want to eliminate low back pain without having to take drugs for the rest of your life.

Chiropractic is aimed at improving the condition, by alleviating the symptoms without drugs and addressing the problem itself, so you can eliminate your back pain all together.

Pain is often the last symptom of a problem and usually the very first symptom that is addressed. In an article written by Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD, he talks about the importance of preventative care when it come to the back. The article stresses how we need to care for our back just like going to a dentist for preventative dental care. Finding and resolving small problems with misalignments, tension and any other injuries early, can prevent big problem from happening down the road.

Does Dr. Oz recommend chiropractic for low back pain?

He certainly does! The research is positive and beneficial for chiropractic treatment. The key is to get treatment as soon as possible to get the back moving. Resting in bed and taking medication is not going to help and may actually make things worse.

A chiropractor can provide a sound and effective treatment plan. This includes many modalities and treatments such as adjustments, massage, physiotherapy and acupuncture. She can set up a plan to improve your flexibility and strength as well as show you how to move the most efficiently with the least amount of strain on your back.
