What Are My Best Choices for Back Pain Relief?
When you have back pain you may be confused as to which treatment option to choose for pain relief. Of all musculoskeletal conditions, low back pain is one of the most disabling, leading to chronic pain, lost productivity and other problems.
Did you know that in the U.S., by the time a person reaches 40 years old, they have an 80% chance of having had at least one significant episode of lower back pain? Not only is back pain common, the pain affects a person’s quality of life.
Most all our patients claim that low back pain limits their ability to function normally in their activities of daily living. Working, walking, and even sleeping are affected by low back pain.
So what are your options when dealing with low back pain?
A typical medical approach might be medication or referral to a back specialist for possible back surgery. We caution you to be wary of taking pain medications for back pain as this it is one of the leading reasons people are prescribed opioid medications.
The safer, drug-free approach would be to see a chiropractor. Chiropractic care is a safe alternative treatment for relief of back pain. Chiropractors do not prescribe medication, nor do they perform back surgery. Instead, chiropractors take an approach that is conservative.
Your chiropractor will examine you for possible misalignment and improper movement of the spinal bones. Most back pain is because of improper mechanical alignment and movement of the bones of the spine.
Chiropractors are the only professionals trained to diagnose and treat alignment problems which cause back pain.
Because chiropractors treat patients without the use of drugs or surgery, seeing a chiropractor to relieve your low back pain makes sense. Contact Campanella Chiropractic & Wellness at (585) 889-3280 to schedule your appointment and you’ll soon be pain free!
