Is back pain affecting your life? Put a stop to it with the help of Dr. Kentia Jean-Charles, Dr. Louis Macolino, and Dr. Billy Ford at the Walk In Medical Center Rehab in Lynbrook, NY.
Causes and Effects of Back Pain
The back takes on a great deal of work – it is responsible for keeping you upright and supporting you as you bend and move. Also – thanks to the bones, muscles, ligaments, and nerves in your back – the rest of your body can do its job.
As the back plays such an important role in daily life, it is an easy target for pain. And sadly, once back pain enters your life, you’ll find it hard to carry out your regular tasks. It can be difficult to walk, stand, move, lift items, and sit.
The causes of back pain cover a wide range of potential issues, some of which include the following:
- Muscle tension
- Strains, or spasms
- Herniated discs
- Obesity and pregnancy
- Poor posture
- Sitting and standing for long periods
- Improper lifting techniques
Treatments for Back Pain
If you experience back pain, there is some good news: it’s treatable and not something you need to live with forever. However, it’s important that you don’t wait around for it to go away on its own as that is no way to address the root cause of the pain.
Treatment for back pain is designed around the individual patient, their needs, and the root cause. However, there are some common treatments that have proven effective time after time.
- Spinal adjustments to address any misalignment
- Acupuncture to promote the flow of energy, blood, and healing nutrients to the injured area
- Physical therapy to both stretch and strengthen damaged muscles and other components
- Flexion distraction technique to help stretch and decompress the spine
