Because our back is perfectly engineered to provide strength, support and flexibility for everyday activities, this is one of the areas that we will feel a breakdown in our function and health. In fact, studies show that upwards of 80% of Americans will experience back pain at some point in their lifetime.
There are numerous causes to low back pain, as well as varying degrees of severity to low back pain. A low back injury can be mild and annoying and work up to severe and debilitating. The treatments available for low back pain are also wide ranging. Everything from simple rest and ice all the way to surgery. This is why dull pain, achy pain, burning or spasming in the lower back is nothing to mess with.
As a chiropractor for the past 17 years, I have seen and helped all kinds of patients from children to seniors suffering from low back pain. Some of these cases were “quick fixes” to more complicated, longer term care as well as preventative care (which is the least costly and best form of care).
Of all the therapies I provide patients, the chiropractic adjustment has the most profound and longest lasting benefits to the patient. And not just for pain, but more importantly, for improved function.
For patients who suffer from disc injuries like bulging, slipped or herniated discs, I also like spinal decompression therapy. I have used this therapy, with great success, for years. In fact, I have been able to help hundreds of patients avoid unnecessary surgeries and avoid the complications of pharmaceutical use (like opiates) and steroid injections utilizing chiropractic care and spinal decompression therapy.
I am pleased to be able to offer this unique therapy, utilizing the most state of the art and technologically advanced spinal decompression table on the market, to the residents of Stanly County and surrounding areas.
If you, or someone you know is suffering from low back or leg pain, please feel free to contact our office to see if spinal decompression therapy or chiropractic therapy would help resolve their pain complaints once and for all.
