Do you spend your days in a strenuous job lifting heavy objects? Did you recently help a friend move?
Doing a lot of home improvement projects without much help? Regardless of what the source of physical strain is on your body, the outcome is the same: lower back pain.
Pain Relief and Treatment
If this is you, you are not alone. Lower back pain is one of the most common reasons people seek medical treatment.
Traditional treatment for this tends to be rest, ice, and prescribed medication. If you choose to seek help for your pain from a chiropractor, however, you will receive an adjustment to realign your spine and consequently address the cause of your discomfort directly, releasing any pressure and reducing inflammation.
This immediate and positive treatment resulted in the recent study outcome that 86 percent of patients who sought chiropractic care for their lower back pain had a better final result and satisfaction with their care than those that did not seek chiropractic intervention.
Neck Pain Treatment
Another common pain that you may have experienced is neck pain. This can be caused by numerous things like worn joints, nerve compression, strains, sport or work-related injuries, torticollis, and several diseases.
The majority of the time, neck pain is caused by muscle strain and is commonly addressed by your doctors with medication. If you are one of many who do not want to deal with the side effects of prescription drugs, seeking an adjustment from a chiropractor can help relieve your pain naturally but providing a decrease in tension and pain thru realignment.
Car Accident Treatment
If you have been in a car accident, it is possible that you have sustained numerous injuries to your body. Spinal injuries might not have an immediate warning sign but can become apparent days later when your pain may have an acute onset.
