Back pain is a common problem and also the second most typical symptom that people visit the doctor for. At some point in your life, you are likely to deal with back pain. Back pain can always vary both in location and magnitude, and the causes can vary as well. Sometimes ligaments can sprain, muscles could sprain, disks could rupture or joints could become irritated. These can all lead to pain in the back. Some causes of back pain could be:
Kidney stones or kidney infections
Luckily, the spine is able to heal strained muscles and ligaments within a couple of days in most cases. However, the back pain is likely to come back. Because of this, treatment is a plausible option for back pain. Chiropractors can begin to treat most patients with back pain by identifying and addressing the problem, which is typically mechanical. After the cause of the back pain is addressed, the primary treatment your chiropractor can use is spinal manipulation. This will help relieve pain in the back as well as decreases medication. Patients recovering through physical therapy also progress more quickly when being treated through spinal manipulation.
It is crucial before treatment that you inform your chiropractor if you are:
Feeling numbness in your leg, foot or groin
Feeling pain below your knee
Losing control of bowels
In too much pain to move
Not feeling any pain relief
To help prevent back pain in the future, hire movers before lifting something heavy. Also seek treatment early to hopefully minimize the damage.
