Your Birmingham chiropractor knows that back pain is one of the biggest annoyances that anyone can face. Not only does it hurt, but the pain can also keep you from pursuing the things that you love to do, and it can even make it difficult to get a good night’s sleep. Back pain can exist alone, can be a symptom or it can be a side effect. Learning more about your pain, and how you can reduce or end it should be a top priority for anyone who suffers.
The first thing that you must understand about back pain is that all back pain is not the same. Back pain can be sharp, aching, throbbing or a combination. It can occur in the upper, middle or lower back and be targeted to only one side, or not. Slight discomfort may simply mean that you need to take it easy for a short while and more severe back pain could lead to surgery or long-term therapy. Understanding your unique pain is vital.
There are many different causes of back pain, and each may affect you in a variety of ways. Many people start experiencing back pain slowly, over time due to their posture or how they are sitting at work or play. In other cases, back pain is caused by accident or injury. Pain caused by accident is usually the case when the pain comes on all of a sudden. Finally, back pain can also be a symptom of another disorder. Because there are so many different causes of the pain, it is vital that you have your pain checked out and that you understand the cause—as well as working towards relief.
You shouldn’t have to suffer from ongoing back pain. Your Birmingham chiropractor, Dr. Scott Duca, can help. A chiropractor helps reduce your back pain naturally, without the use of pain medication or resorting to surgery. First, Dr. Duca will give you a thorough exam, to get to the root of the problem. Once he understands what is causing your pain, he will make recommendations as to the best course of chiropractic treatment.
