Most people experience back pain once or twice in their lifetime. Nearly 65 million Americans report a recent flare up of back pain. Approximately, 10 percent of all adults — experience persistent or chronic back pain, and as a result are limited in certain everyday activities such as simple things like doing laundry or washing dishes. For some, a simple walk around the block is a dream due to the terrible back pain. Back pain is the sixth most costly condition in the United States.
What causes chronic back pain?
Repeated heavy lifting or a sudden awkward movement may strain back muscles and spinal ligaments. If you’re in poor physical condition, constant strain on your back may cause painful muscle spasms, bulging or herniated discs. The discs between each vertebra act as cushions between the bones (vertebrae) in your spine. Over time, the discs can flatten and thin out leaving the area more weak. As the vulnerability continues, something as simple as bending forward or brushing your teeth can throw your back out. Leaving you on your back for days and days at a time. The first couple times you throw your back out, it might go away all on its own.
Six months later, you lift a heavy box, you drop to your knees, your back just went out. You are stuck! HELP NOW! Small movements or twisting can create burning or stabbing pain, or pain that moves down your legs.
Commonly we are asked will the pain ever go away?
The short answer, yes, the pain can go away. We must keep in mind how long the pain has been there. It hasn’t just been just 2 days because you have had this pain before but it was not treated it just went away (or so you thought). Here is what really happened, you rested and stayed off your feet and the pain went away but the body is still in a weak position.
Many patients are told they must have injections, nerve ablation, pain medicine for the rest of their life, and even surgery before they have tried proven non invasive measures. Most patients have tried 2-3 things before they even meet us.
With Non- Surgical Spinal Decompression and NUCCA, we do not force the misalignment back into place with popping or harsh twisting. Instead, we work with the body’s own neurology.
