There are days when you don’t understand why you have to deal with so much pain, even though you have already had back surgery, on medication, or have undergone an extensive series of physical therapy. What can you do?  There are three common types of treatment for chronic spinal pain; for short-term AND long-term relief. These include acupuncture, anti-inflammatory drugs, and chiropractic treatment.

Data was published following three unique studies in which patients were divided into the three different groups.  Only the patients who received chiropractic manipulation reached a level of statistically significant improvement, supporting that chiropractic treatment offered the best short-term (within 30 days) and long-term (after two years) benefits for those with chronic back or neck pain.

If you are suffering from pain and have lost, or are starting to lose, the ability to function normally, find a doctor of chiropractic who will help you achieve long-term chiropractic wellness! Following an intensive phase of chiropractic treatment in which the pain and disability levels decrease, it is important to follow up with regular chiropractic service.

As they grow, children experience many falls and mishaps which may seem rather insignificant at the time. As time passes however, these minor injuries can accumulate and become a significant health issue with a lifetime of damaging effects. Studies show that many children who experience symptoms of colic, ear infections and asthma have spinal subluxations impairing their nervous system function.

As a concerned parent, you have probably already started to research the effectiveness of chiropractic pediatric care. The nervous system is the master control system of growth, repair and the function of every tissue and organ in the body.  It serves to,interpret the messages coming from the environment and deciding which messages to send to the body so that it can adjust itself appropriately. Regular chiropractic care keeps this system in correct alignment so that your child’s body receives the correct signals for growing and functioning correctly.

Back pain can come and go--temporary relief followed by frustration. Pain is considered chronic if it lasts three months or longer, and is often age-related.  But it can also be the result of a prior injury. Have you been told that surgery is your only option to relieve your chronic back pain?

Low back pain can improve with time (it may take months or years) as the natural aging process as the disc space has less motion. With continued degeneration, bony growth around the disc will try to capture the excess motion. Because degenerative disc disease is, for the most part, a non-crippling, non-progressive type of back condition, continuing non-surgical treatments to manage the painful symptoms is always an option.

Only the patient can decide if the pain and inability to perform normal daily activities is bad enough to warrant spinal fusion (or any other) type of surgery. And the best way for a patient to make an informed decision is to fully understand the trade-offs between spinal fusion and other non-surgical and surgical treatment options. Don’t make rushed decisions for extensive medical procedures until the origin of the pain is found. Not only may they not help; they could make the pain worse.
