Back pain, at the very least, will get your attention. If you have more severe back pain, it will not only get your attention but it will also create extreme discomfort when completing even the most normal tasks or worse, cause you to remain stationary for some period of time. Many people assume that their back pain is inevitable, and that they have no choice but to endure it. After all, it will not last forever, so I can just suffer through a few days of pain and discomfort until things go back to normal. The staff of Catalyst Chiropractic & Rehab encourages you to take your back pain seriously and seek treatment so that you can find relief now and prevent additional pain in the future.
Preventing Future Back Pain And Problems
It is true that minor back pain will occasionally just stop on its own, and not every minor back injury leads to long-term, chronic back pain. But each time you experience back pain, you are running the risk of allowing your body to grow accustomed to changes that can become permanent, and which can lead to more chronic pain in your lower back. For example, if you are experiencing back pain right now as a result of, say, replacing some old wood on your back deck that required some heavy lifting and bending, the pain you are experiencing could be your body’s response to changes that have taken place in your spine and the muscles that support it.
The pain you feel could be in the muscles, caused by persistent stress on and tension in the muscles that support the spinal column. Often, though, the reason that those muscles become painful is that they are supporting a spinal column that has become misaligned. If your spine is misaligned severely enough, the pain you feel could be coming from compression or rupture of one or more disks located between each vertebra. Our staff can assess the nature of the injury and address it, without reliance on over the counter medications and/or surgical treatment. Our most common and effective treatment includes a spinal adjustment and also massage therapy to treat the affected muscles and/or acupuncture to give your body’s natural healing mechanisms a jolt.
