Misdiagnosed Back Pain?
By Randi Morse
One of the more difficult aspects of dealing with chronic back pain is receiving the correct diagnosis. Back pain is often difficult to diagnose because there are so many different things that can cause the pain. Your back is responsible for supporting your entire body and there are countless tendons, muscles, and nerves that are all centralized in your back. Back pain that has been misdiagnosed cannot be treated correctly. Did you know that a chiropractic visit may be able to help you get your back pain diagnosed correctly?
When something is broken on your car, do you attempt to fix the problem yourself or do you take your vehicle to a mechanic? Unless you have some mechanical training, or are one of those people who just happens to be good at fixing everything, you likely do what most people do and take your vehicle to a mechanic. You do this because the mechanic is an expert in dealing with vehicles. If you have a foreign made vehicle, you may go a step further and bring your car in for repairs at a garage that specializes in working with foreign made vehicles.
Think of the chiropractor as an expert in spine and back health. Chiropractors are doctors trained to know and fully understand everything about the back and spine. They understand the many different connections that are made in the spine, such as how the spinal column protects a large bundle of nerves, and how one joint restriction can cause a variety of different types of pain sensations.
