How Chiropractic Care Offers You Natural Back Pain Relief
When life swerves and brings schedules to a halt, back pain is often the culprit. I have seen this happen to a mix of men and women, but they all had a similar look in their eyes, when they realized they needed answers soon.
The American Chiroparctic Association says at any given time over 30 million Americans are dealing with back pain.
What This Looks Like Close Up
One fellow had worked long hours building his own business. In the process he had gained weight, suffered through a lot of financial challenges and, in some ways, sacrificed his health to his mission to succeed and support his family.
Back pain slowed his work efforts way down and he turned to his chiropractor for relief, which proved to be just what he needed. The chiropractor helped him learn to relax, eat better and lose weight. He also trimmed back his hours in favor of a little healthy exercise time. Together he and the chiropractor fashioned a treatment program that made life work again. When I last saw him he was headed out with his family for a well deserved vacation.
Another fellow that I knew was also a heart patient, and as he moved through his career he managed to successfully deal with his heart problems. But he was a little surprised and dismayed when he encountered another downer in back pain. Now he needed a whole new set of answers. He chose a chiropractor’s help and figured out ways to solve back pain too. The process took about six months, but it proved to be the best way back. Now, pain free, he could walk with his dog, visit his friends, and just enjoy life without looming back pain.
Letting Your Chiropractor Help
Your spinal column is made up of 24 vertebrae that permit your body to move, bend and twist through everything you do, from your morning coffee to your evening wind down. The spine protects the delicate nerve tissue that links your brain and your body. Your chiropractor believes the first step to evaluate your spinal health and help solve pain issues begins with a spinal adjustment to correct any misalignments.
After that, the chiropractor will want to review medical history and discuss the development of current pain. Throughout the process the goal will be to help achieve pain relief and restore normal activities without medications or surgery. The typical treatment process evolves into ongoing wellness assistance, where the patient learns to solve any new pain issues early. Relaxation and strength exercises, lessons on posture, and tips on protecting the spine when lifting can all be part of the chiropractic treatment process.
