Back Pain Relief in Stone Oak
Back Pain Relief
If you're suffering from lower back pain you're not alone and our chiropractic care in Stone Oak might help you find back pain relief. More than 80% of North Americans will at some time in their life suffer from the disabling confines of lower back pain.
According to experts, lower back pain is the number one disability culprit in workers' compensation claims and accounts for more than $50 billion annually in the US through medical care and lost production. In addition, the latest research shows most lower back problems which cause low back pain do not fully resolve without extensive treatment and proper rehabilitation, contrary to previous beliefs.
The chiropractic doctor is unique in the health care field in that much of the training in chiropractic colleges is specifically aimed at identifying and successfully treating and managing lower back conditions. General medical practitioners generally lack adequate training in this area and have not learned the skills necessary to most effectively identify and treat most back conditions.
Back pain is not fun but the good news is we at Dr Golab’s Chiropractic & Massage in Stone Oak, to the north of San Antonio can help.
Causes of Back Pain
There are numerous causes of back pain, too many to list in fact. Here are some of the most common causes that we see in our practice:
• Sedentary lifestyle
• Too little exercise
• Too much exercise
• Poor posture
• Poor weight management
• Trauma (accidents & injuries)
• and so much more.
Low back pain can be triggered from many things, including a slow deterioration in the back leading to dysfunction and pain. It can come on quickly, such as standing up the wrong way or through poor posture.
Many might hope it goes away or take a pain pill to help, but the truth of the matter is, the sooner you can get it properly treated and not leave it to chance, the quicker you get back to normal. Moreover it will likely save you time and money in the long run.
If you’re at that point now, do not hesitate, walk in and see us today or schedule an appointment.
How Does Back Pain Form?
When injured our body has a very unique way of protecting the injured area with inflammation or what we call toxins to protect the injured site. Over time, that injured site builds toxins that form scarring or adhesions to various tissues. The adhesions and inflammation limits your ability to move in a particular area and sends out a signal of pain to tell you something is not right. Sometimes those pain signals get ignored and other injuries occur or you learn to adapt and continue on.
It’s what I call, “the straw that broke the camel’s back.” It’s not the straw that did it, it’s the whole hay bale that you have been carrying around that just one more piece of straw did you in.” It’s usually the same story, “I was just bending down to pick up something like a paper bag, a pencil or in the shower when my back went out”.
So what are you going to do about it?
What Back Pain Relief Treatments Are Available?
We live in a time where there are fortunately many options available. At home treatments may include:
• Pain killers
• Yoga rollers
• Simple stretches
If none of these treatment options are providing you with the back pain relief desired, then now is certainly the time to come in.
Our services include:
• Spinal Decompression
• Auto Accident Injuries
Non Invasive, Conservative Care
Each of these treatments are non invasive, conservative, offer little to no side effects and also contain many different techniques within.
Our goal is to help every patient we see out of pain. Chiropractic is arguably the best way to find relief from back and neck pain, but utilizing the other treatments, massage therapy, cryotherapy and even spinal decompression therapy, the process towards a pain free life can be expedited.
