Suffering From Back Pain? Chiropractic Can Help!
If back pain has affected your life, you are most certainly not alone. As one of the leading complaints across the country, back pain affects an average of 31 million Americans every year. But what can be done for back pain? For many, the first reaction to pain is to reach for medication. But the relief that medication provides is only short-lived, as back pain returns, sometimes even worse than before, once the medications wear off. Instead of just settling for a temporary solution to back pain, experience long-lasting relief through chiropractic care from a Chesterfield chiropractor. Chiropractic care seeks to address the root cause of back pain to alleviate symptoms altogether so that you can enjoy living pain-free once again.
Types of Back Pain
Different types of conditions can cause different types of back pain. Injury or trauma can lead to back pain, and if not addressed, it can become chronic pain. Car accidents, repetitive lifting, moving heavy objects, or overexertion can cause back pain due to herniated discs or even pinched nerve pain. Back pain is a common symptom of medical conditions like osteoarthritis, inflammation of the spine, or fibromyalgia. Another cause of back pain can be unhealthy choices, such as poor eating habits, lack of exercise, weight gain, or smoking. Not taking care of our bodies puts a lot of added pressure on the spine which can be the source of pain. Whether your back pain is mild or severe, Chesterfield chiropractor Dr. Ryan Hewkin can focus on the spine to increases spinal health which not only alleviates back pain, but also improves the health of the whole body.
Alleviate Back Pain with Chiropractic
When back pain persists, medical professionals may suggest invasive procedures to correct problem areas and relieve pain. But before turning to more invasive measures such as surgery, consider natural, safe, and noninvasive chiropractic care. A lot of back pain can be linked to spinal misalignments, or twisted, turned, or out of place vertebrae. When the spine is out of alignment, it can cause nerve interference that disrupts communication throughout the body. When the body can’t communicate properly, it leads to dysfunction and pain. Dr. Ryan Hewkin of Excelsior Family Chiropractor can assess the spine and remove spinal misalignments through gentle chiropractic adjustments so that the body can once again function as it should. Improved spinal health has amazing benefits that not only include eliminating back pain, but also increasing the body’s ability to work properly, heal itself, and feel its very best.
Several case studies prove that chiropractic is an effective method for addressing back pain. Many people have found significant and long-lasting relief through regular chiropractic care. Although you can experience relief after just one or two adjustments, long-term results come from repetition. One case study conducted in 2011 found that it took an average of 6 weeks to eliminate all symptoms of back pain. But through repetition, many people have experienced amazing results. In one case study, a 35-year-old pregnant woman experienced severe back pain that affected her ability to sit and walk. Through regular chiropractic care and 13 total visits over a 6 week period, she found relief and was able to continue with her daily life with ease and comfort.If you suffer from back pain, don’t let it take control.
