Why Chiropractic Treatment Excels in Treating Back Pain
In a busy world, back pain can be a huge hang up. Suddenly life slows way down and pain shoots way up. Finding the best relief and fast, may be as near as your chiropractor’s office, according to American Chiropractic Association member, Dr. Jay Greenstein.
Greenstein explains there is usually a mechanical reason behind the back pain. If you start treating it with medications, you are not going to get long term relief and over time your condition could become chronic. Greenstein goes on to recommend general exercise, manipulation of the body and core specific exercises for back pain.
According to the American Chiropractic Association, 31 million Americans suffer from lower back pain at any given time, and up to 80 percent of the population will experience back pain at some point in their lives.
Over the years I have seen several cases of debilitating back pain. In each case chiropractors helped find the solution, seeking pain relief without medication or surgery.
For one fellow, retirement was rudely interrupted and he had to rethink his vacations with his grandkids, as he sought treatment for pain that would not let up. After several months of treatment that included a diet for weight loss, a lighter work schedule, and several relaxation and strength exercises, this fellow was delighted to reclaim his retirement and hit the road with his grandkids.

Just as chiropractors like Greenstein suggest, your chiropractor has hands on solutions for your back pain. No matter where you are on the back pain issue your chiropractor can help.
The chiropractor’s goal is to help achieve pain relief whenever possible without medications or surgery. In the initial visit the chiropractor will do a spinal adjustment to evaluate the health of the spine, take a full medical history and discuss what is going on, and what daily activities look like.
In chiropractic visits the focus is on a healthy spine, insuring the whole nervous system is working well. With the chiropractor’s help patients often learn new relaxation exercises, improve diets, or add a new exercise class to help ease stress.
