Back Pain

Back Pain

Back Pain seems to afflict all of us at one time or another and there is no one cause. Often we are in so much pain that we reach for medication to kill the pain and once the pain is lessened, we feel we are cured. Unless the underlying cause in addition to the pain is addressed, the problem may come back or never go away. Back pain varies widely. For many people, it lasts only a few weeks, no matter what treatment is used. But for others, the pain can become chronic and even debilitating.

Low-back pain is a challenging condition to diagnose and treat. But you should seek treatment if it does not improve in a few days, is severe, or becomes chronic. Low-back pain or "lower back pain" usually improves with self-care or avoiding issues in the first place by remaining active and limber with moderate exercise, stretching, or yoga. However, it is occasionally difficult to treat.

Some health care professionals such as chiropractors are trained to use a technique called spinal manipulation to relieve low-back pain and improve physical function. A qualified alternative healthcare provider such as a Chiropractor and Osteopath can determine the source and prescribe the proper treatment. Is it poor posture, was there an accident, is your spine out of alignment, is it really pain in your kidneys or adrenal glands? Chiropractors and Osteopaths devote much attention in their practices to the prevention and alleviation of back pain. Acupuncture can also be used to lessen back pain.
