Common Myths About Chronic Back Pain
Jul 18, 2017

Back pain affects each person at some point in their life. As the most common condition treated by our Atlanta Chiropractors, there are a few myths that surround chronic back pain and are often presented by new patients. Check out the following helpful facts associated with chronic back pain and make sure to schedule an appointment with AICA Atlanta if you suffer from this condition.

Chronic Back Pain Myths

Although back pain is common among Atlanta residents, it does not mean that it is healthy or acceptable. Back pain requires comprehensive treatment regardless of your personal habits or characteristics.

Common Myth: Back Pain Naturally Occurs As A Result Of Growing Older

Just because you are getting older does not mean that you should expect to experience or welcome back pain as a sign of aging. Yes, your body becomes more vulnerable to various illnesses and conditions that can lead to back pain, but there are actions you can take to prevent chronic pain and maintain a healthy spine, such as receiving regular Chiropractic Treatment.

Common Myth: If I Exercise Often, Back Pain Will Not Affect Me

Staying active and maintaining a healthy lifestyle that’s supported by regular exercise is one of the many ways you can keep your back in good condition. However, nothing can completely protect you from potential pain. If you exercise a few times each week, ask our Atlanta Chiropractors for their recommendations on what else you can do to support your back such as dietary adjustments or relaxation techniques.

Common Myth: I Hardly Notice The Pain So My Condition Isn’t Serious

Pain is a weak indicator of how serious potential underlying or noticeable conditions may be. Depending on the circumstances, pain can take weeks or months to appear after sustaining an injury. If you notice mild pain that continues for more than a few days, make sure to schedule an appointment with AICA Atlanta for a complete examination.

Common Myth: Chronic Back Pain Can Only Be Treated With Surgery

Although everyone experiences back pain at some point, it does not mean that surgery is the only solution available. Chiropractic care serves as a natural alternative to prescription medications that provide temporary pain relief or invasive surgery. Through manual adjustments, stabilization exercises, and physical therapy, you can experience immediate pain relief while also protecting yourself from the potential risks associated with traditional approaches to pain management.
