A significant health concern
We see more patients in Charlotte for low back pain than any other health issue. It does not matter whether you are working, playing sports, or performing household chores; it seems that the easiest part of the body to injure is the lower back. The American Chiropractic Association reports that 31 million Americans experience low back pain at any given time. This represents a significant health concern, yet it is so puzzling why so many individuals simply suffer through the pain and allows the conditions that contribute to their low back pain go untreated.
Causes of Charlotte low back pain
The cause of Charlotte low back pain can be the result of various injuries. Your pain could be related to something as simple as a strained muscle, to something as serious as a bulging or ruptured disc. If you ever experience low back pain on any level, you are aware that it can be relentless and even debilitating. In addition to the pain, there is loss of movement and function. The pain is always there while working or going to bed, or waking up with it. The best chiropractic doctors can determine the exact diagnosis and determine the most appropriate treatment(s) to relieve your pain and help you to heal. Be proactive and see a chiropractor because in most cases, the pain will not go away without treatment.
Chiropractic treatment for Charlotte low back pain
A chiropractor will sit down with you and takes a complete medical history. Then he or she will perform a comprehensive physical examination. This will usually include x-ray imaging to determine if treatment is appropriate for your back pain. Depending upon your condition, there is a possibility that your chiropractor may order some additional lab tests. The treatment plan will probably involve one or more gentle spinal adjustments. This means that the doctor manipulates the joints, using a controlled force to improve range and quality of motion. The best chiropractors also incorporate nutritional counseling and rehabilitative exercises. Massage therapy may also fit into the treatment plan. The goal of chiropractic care is first pain relief, then restoration of function, and prevention of injury in the future. You can be sure there will be a focus on treating the cause of your pain because chiropractic doctors are trained to determine the cause of the injury and to formulate an accurate and effective treatment plan.
The benefits chiropractic care
Spinal adjustments and chiropractic care is considered safe, natural, and effective treatment for acute or chronic low back pain. One of the biggest problems for individuals who live with chronic low back pain is that many develop a chemical or psychological dependency on pain medications. As time goes by, there is a need to consume higher dosages to get pain relief. Beyond dependency, their condition tends to get worse because the cause of the pain is never addressed. Chiropractic doctors are trained to use several natural modalities without the use of pain medications or narcotics. Research has also revealed chiropractic helpful in treating neck pain, headaches, osteoarthritis, and fibromyalgia.
