Back pain can affect people at any age, and for different reasons, low back pain is a prevalent health problem worldwide. Low back pain can be acute, sub-acute, or chronic, and it’s one of the most frequent reasons for medical consultations. According to the American Chiropractic Association, about 31 million Americans experience low back pain at any given time.
Back Pain Causes:
- Bad posture
- Strain, muscle spasm or muscle tension
- Sport Injuries
- Bulging and Herniated Discs
- Abnormal curvature of the spine
- Kidney problems
Although everyday activities and bad posture can cause back pain, if you have been experiencing the pain for some time and is causing you a series of symptoms that don’t allow you to rest, like numbness in the legs, weakness, fever, or if you suffer an injury, you should get checked by a back pain doctor. At Taylor Rehabilitation & Wellness Center, we’ve treated patients with back pain for several years in Chicago, IL.
Back Pain Treatment:
Depending on the findings of the back pain doctor after an examination, he will diagnose the cause of your back pain and will determine what is the best treatment to follow for your case. If needed, he might perform imaging scans and other tests, especially in the case of a fall. An X-ray, MRI, or CT scan can be some of the tests the doctor may want to perform to get more information about the state of the soft tissues in your back.
As a patient at Taylor Rehabilitation & Wellness Center, we will create a program specifically targeted to your wellness and back pain. One of the most effective treatments that tackle almost all the causes of back pain is Chiropractic Adjustment.
Chiropractic adjustments or chiropractic care is a drug-free and non-invasive option; the doctor makes manual adjustments to the spinal joints that are causing dysfunction related to the pain. Usually, when people get chiropractic adjustments, many of them express to experience almost immediate relief to the pain after the first session.
Don’t wait for your back pain to become chronic and have more severe complications.
