Tips For Healthy Living!

Are you wondering how you can keep living with the extreme pain in your back? If you’re suffering from pain caused by disc problems, your medical physician may have recommended back surgery. There are certainly certain situations where surgery may be necessary, such as severe bone, disc, and nerve destruction. However, the majority of people suffering from back pain and/or sciatica never actually need surgery. Your doctor of chiropractic can discuss back surgery alternatives with you to see if you can benefit from other forms of treatment.

You may wonder why discs in the spine cause such pain? First, you need to understand what a disc is and what it does for you. There are intervertebral discs with a tough outer ring and a soft gel-like center that separate each vertebra. They act like little shock absorbers, cushioning the bones so they don’t rub against each other as you move. The spine receives its curve, flexibility, and strength from health discs.

If you want to know what is the fastest way to relieve back pain, then you should be looking for a back chiropractor. Sadly, back injuries are a part of our daily lives. The act of walking alone puts intense pressure on the spine, as well as on the rest of our bones and muscles. Then, consider the constant lifting, reaching, standing, or sitting with poor posture, sports, not to mention the natural act of our body’s aging process. These are all ingredients that can lead to chronic back pain.

Did you know that back pain is the second most common reason for visits to a doctor’s office (the first reason is upper-respiratory infections)? Fortunately, a healthy spine can handle minor back injuries, healing itself within a few days. However, there are times when your pain seems to last forever! Regardless of whether your pain is caused by a minor or a major injury, don’t put off finding a back chiropractor. They have been educated and trained to know and understand the underlying cause of your pain and are skilled in treating it, safely and effectively—drug-free!

Here is some advice from a back chiropractor with tips to help you prevent injury to your spine:

If you’re tired of living with pain, try chiropractic treatment! A doctor of chiropractic can find the cause of your pain, and then give you the right treatment so that your pain disappears! But how often should you see a chiropractor, you ask? Chiropractic care is a prescribed course of treatment determined by the nature of your condition, how long it has been present, and your ultimate goal. Do you want to just get by, or do you want to achieve complete wellness?

So that our patients receive the full benefits of chiropractic care, we recommend the schedule of appointments as outlined below:

Spinal decompression treatment is approved by the Federal Drug Administration to help relieve pain caused by a bulging or herniated disc, narrowing of the spinal column or stenosis of the spine, sciatica or radiculopathy, as well as pain in the back, legs, neck, and arm. Spine decompression is a minimally invasive treatment that may help patients avoid medication, injections, spinal surgery, and anesthesia.

So what are the side effects of spinal decompression? Most patients do not experience any side effects. It is totally safe and comfortable. Spinal decompression has even helped patients after failed back surgery. However, if the patient has suffered severe nerve damage, spinal decompression therapy may not be a viable option. Thus, it is important to undergo a physical exam, MRI, or X-rays to determine if spinal decompression treatments are correct for you.
