One of the most common types of pain affecting people today is back pain. Back pain can be severe and even disabling, and it can occur in localized areas of the upper, middle, and lower back, or across your entire back.
Back pain is common because it is most often the result of either overexertion or under exertion. For example, back pain may occur if you lift items that are too heavy, especially if you are doing so repeatedly, or if you sit or stand in the same position for too long without stretching or moving.
Even if you are aware of the exact action that is causing your pain, there is no “quick fix” to provide you with lasting relief. It may even be possible that you have a specific injury or condition causing your pain. Common injuries and conditions include:
- Your daily posture
- Back muscle tears
- Slipped spinal disks
- Spinal joint fractures
The best way to avoid back pain is through preventive treatment. Our chiropractors at Kennedy Avenue Wellness offer preventive care to relieve your pain as early as possible and prevent minor problems with simple corrections; we want to help prevent small issues from turning into serious and chronic conditions that could take months or years to successfully treat.
If you have back pain, our back pain physician will provide you with a comprehensive chiropractic exam to identify the source of your pain and the specific treatments that will be most beneficial to alleviate your discomfort and improve your overall health and wellness. Your treatment plan may include chiropractic adjustments, exercises, massage therapy, and the use of other products. If your case is particularly severe, we may recommend that you meet with a spine specialist. We are committed to helping you improve your quality of life and see lasting improvement in your levels of comfort and wellness.
