South Coast PT. Is Back Pain Slowing You Down?

DON’T LET BACKPAIN STOP YOU!

When it comes to non-surgical solutions to back issues, Chiropractic Care is an increasingly common choice, whether your primary problem is a pinched nerve, bulging disc or chronically pulled muscles. The growing confidence in chiropractic medicine to resolve these issues stems in part from the practitioner’s ability to provide a concentrated focus on the pain and stiffness, especially for lower back pain and its related problems. Common chiropractic methods for back pain include spinal manipulation, involving quick pushes or motions to set vertebrae back into place, and spinal mobilization, a gentler method that helps enhance joint motions in your back. Though this treatment may sound painful, Chiropractic care focuses on correcting spinal alignment in an effort to relieve pressure on surrounding muscles, joints, and nerves in your lower back.

Before they know it, they have a big problem. They might assume nothing—except for medication—can solve their back pain problem. Medication might mask the pain, but it won’t cure the problem’s root cause.  Back Pain Solutions You’re in luck: Back pain can be cured! The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke covers a number of back pain remedies. These include the use of strength exercise, physiotherapy and medication. Where medication is considered, anti-inflammatory drugs, analgesic medications and counter-irritants are the most popular. Back Pain Prevention Before you can treat your back pain, however, you need to know why it started. Whether you’ve tweaked a muscle or have a deeper injury, a spine specialist can help. A little prevention goes a long way. CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Back pain can hinder your day-to-day activities. Left untreated, it can even lead to long-term joint, spine, and nerve damage. As one of the most common physical complaints, up to 85 percent of the Canadian population will suffer from it at some point in their lifetime. The pain itself can hinder your ability to reach, lean, kneel, lift or bend. It can also hinder your time spent with friends and family. Direct pain aside, minor aches and cramps associated with a back pain problem can make you irritable—ruining your good time. What Causes Back Pain? Several issues can cause back pain, but according to the Canadian Physiotherapy Association, the following are leading causes: • Spinal and core muscle weaknesses • Bad posture • Spinal muscle and tissue damage • Improper lifting form • Limited hip, spine & thigh muscle flexibility • Bad abdominal, pelvic and back muscle coordination
