Options for Back Pain Relief


The little seed of back pain from a few days ago has blossomed into a 24/7 nightmare of constant pain and unrest. Every action comes with a stab of pain, which is slowly getting worse. Fearing surgery, you try over the counter pain medication with temporary relief at best. There is an end to this nightmare that may not even require extensive surgery.


Back pain can be difficult for an individual to diagnose since most back pain or soreness will subside after a few days. However, when the pain does not subside after a few days, the individual may need to see a chiropractor. The American Chiropractic Association, ACA, describes chiropractic on their website acatoday.org as “a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health.” Fortunately, chiropractic care does not always involve surgery and can have numerous options before surgery becomes the best choice. With lower back pain, “chiropractic care may be a patient’s primary method of treatment,” the ACA continues that, “When other medical conditions exist, chiropractic services may complement or support medical treatment by relieving the musculoskeletal aspects associated with the condition.” Since an individual cannot always see what is causing the pain, it can be difficult to know what to do. Fortunately, there are alternative methods one can use alongside chiropractic care to prevent back pain.


While preventative measures are a possible way to assist in treating back pain, a visit to a professional chiropractor can offer the best advice and prevent the worst scenarios. According to the ACA, there are numerous ways in which a chiropractor can deal with back pain, including:

The ACA also adds that “Research has shown that manipulative therapy and spinal manipulation are not only safe and effective, but can cut costs and get workers back on the job faster than other treatments.” Too often, people avoid making the necessary medical decision to seek professional treatment due to the cost or fear of insurance issues. Avoiding the necessary appointment will only worsen the current situation. In some cases, the pain is small starting out and will not need extensive treatments. After a few visits to a chiropractor, the patient will be good as new and back on track to a comfortable lifestyle. If concerns of surgery are holding you back from a chiropractor, stop trying to tough it out and seek a professional opinion. The chiropractor office will be able to tell what level of treatment you need and the best way to implement it into your daily life. If untreated, the pain will only continue to worsen over time and may eventually require surgery. Chiropractic care can also address issues such as neck pain, headaches and other areas of muscle tension.
