15 Oct Severe Lower Back Pain: Your Personal Plan for Recovery
Been moving furniture lately and forgetting to lift with your knees and not your back? Or perhaps you slipped and feel on an icy step and your back just hasn’t felt right since? You’re not alone, and you don’t have to turn to prescription medications to smother your pain.
Over one-third of those who pay a visit to their chiropractor are seeking relief for their back pain. Sports and professional injuries, physically demanding jobs, and motor vehicle accidents are some of the most common causes of lower back pain…but what’s a person to do who has struggled with severe lower back pain for months or even years?
Chiropractic Care is the Answer to Acute or Chronic Back Ache
The evidence for addressing lower back pain successfully points directly to chiropractic care. In 2010, a study involving nearly 3000 patients with acute or medium-term pain in the lower back demonstrated that quality chiropractic care beat out all the other treatment options. More than physical therapy, various doses of pain medication, and exercise regimens, chiropractic care resolved the problem and put patients on a path to a pain-free life.
Slipped or herniated disc causing nerve problems and pain in your spinal area or lower back? This issue is best addressed with a chiropractic care plan specific to neuropathy. A good chiropractor knows the precise arrangement of nerves and how painful they can be if pinched or lodged in the wrong position.
Stay Drug-Free and Healthy While You Heal
The best physical environment for healing is a body as clean as possible from prescription drugs. Contrary to popular belief, pharmaceutical medications don’t confront problems head on – they simply veil the symptoms. The true, root cause of back pain is often a misalignment between the delicate nervous system, the spine, and the joints in that area. Between an upper cervical alignment, a spinal disc decompression, and various other gentle techniques, chiropractic care manipulates your body carefully into its best shape so that you can continue healing on your own and conquer lower back pain for life.
