Back pain is very common, and most people who experience it self-medicate using acetaminophen or anti-inflammatory drugs. Here at Premier Alternative Health Center, in Colorado Springs we are encouraging people who have chronic back pain to have their symptoms evaluated. There are instances where back pain can be an indicator of a serious condition. It's also important to note, persistent back pain will not go away on its own. Here is some information you should know about some causes of back pain and how we treat it here in our office.
The Causes of Lower Back Pain
Lower back pain can be an acute or chronic condition. In instances where back pain is identified as acute, the pain can last a short time, but it can be intense. In terms of chronic back pain, people experience it for much longer periods of time and its intensity can either be mild or severe. It should also be noted that back pain can be accompanied by other conditions, which is one of the reasons why it is so important to be seen by a medical practitioner as soon as you can.
Some of the most notable causes of Lower back pain include muscle strain, spinal stenosis, osteoporosis, and lumbar spine arthritis. Generally, muscle strains are considered as conditions that are mild and not anything that would cause long term damage. They can be treated easily with little commitment to long-term care. In terms of conditions like osteoporosis, spinal stenosis, lumbar spine arthritis, and lumbar spine arthritis these conditions are considered chronic conditions and require long-term lower back pain treatment to manage them.
How Our Chiropractor Treats Back Pain
Our doctor’s primary concern is helping our patients find solutions to the sources of their pain. Our chiropractor takes detailed notes in regard to our patient's prior and current medical conditions. Our chiropractor will not make any determination about back pain treatment without conducting a full and thorough evaluation of their body’s symptoms. He will also obtain a radiological assessment. Our patients receive a chiropractic adjustment on their first visit. Our doctor does this to reposition the spine back into its proper position to alleviate the pressure that may be on nerves or discs. Other treatments in our facility include ultrasound therapy, heat therapy, and cryotherapy.
