If you are one of the unfortunate ones suffering from lower back pain you happen to be among the majority. The fact is about 80% of the US population will suffer lower back pain at some point in their lives. So the bigger question is, what can be done about it? One of the problems with the treatment of lower back pain is that there are so many options. It's not like other health problems that have a lower number of potential solutions. For example if you have a heart problem you go see a cardiologist, allergies an allergist etc. With lower back pain you can see your primary care doctor, a pain management doctor, a physical therapist, a massage therapist, an exercise professional and of course a chiropractor. You can see where this can become a little confusing.
One thing to keep in mind is that you need to find someone who specializes in lower back pain and can treat a myriad of injuries effectively. Here at North Shore Spine and Rehab we offer cutting edge and in many cases exclusive spine care. Our programs can treat simple strains and muscle soreness all the way to sever herniated discs and sciatica. We pride ourselves in staying current with the medical literature and refining our techniques and approach to back pain as new research comes out.
For example on WebMD they reported the following:
"Spinal manipulation and chiropractic care is generally considered a safe, effective treatment for acute low back pain, the type of sudden injury that results from moving furniture or getting tackled. Acute back pain, which is more common than chronic pain, lasts no more than six weeks and typically gets better on its own.
Research has also shown chiropractic to be helpful in treating neck pain and headaches. In addition, osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia may respond to the moderate pressure used both by chiropractors and practitioners of deep tissue massage."
As you can see chiropractic care is an effective treatment for many conditions. In addition to chiropractic care our team uses spinal decompression therapy to help with more severe back and disc injuries. Our protocols have helped many patients avoid spinal injections and surgery. Call our office today to find out more about our innovative treatments 781 938-9400.
