Does your back hurt all the time? Do you miss out on all the fun because you have to go lay down for a while? Do you feel pain when you stand for too long or sit for too long? You can only take so much pain relief before other conditions arise. Have you considered seeing a chiropractor for relief? Guess what the number one reason is for most people to come into a chiropractor’s office? You guessed it — lower back pain. At Kouimanis Chiropractic we won’t let you down. We listen to our patients, assess the pain, and then offer comprehensive treatment plans that are sure to reduce pain.
Experts at the Cleveland Clinic estimate that 90 percent of people in the United States will experience back pain at some point in their life. Back strain is the reason for the majority of the pain. Other common causes include:
If your back pain is acute, which means that the pain came on suddenly, it is often the result of a collision or from lifting too heavy of an object. On the other hand, if your back pain is chronic, which means it is constant, then you may have a herniated disk or osteoarthritis.
Chiropractic care is an alternative treatment that reduces pain by manually adjusting the musculoskeletal system. There is quite a bit of evidence that supports the use of spinal manipulation therapy for low back pain. Chiropractic care has been around for over 120 years and is often recommended treatment for back pain.
Last year, 35 million Americans saw their chiropractor to alleviate their pain. Chiropractic care is a practical and affordable treatment to manage back pain without relying on prescription drugs or surgery.
