There are a lot of causes for back pain. Getting older, poor physical fitness, being overweight, heredity, disease, your job, wearing the wrong shoes, and even smoking can all cause back pain at some point. Causes of pain in your back can be linked to one of three categories - injury, lifestyle, or disease. Back pain can be linked to injury to the bone, ligaments, tendons, or discs in the back. It can also be traced back to poor diet, lack of exercise, obesity, or wearing inappropriate footwear for the tasks you are completing. In worst case scenarios, scoliosis, kidney stones, infection, or fibromyalgia can all lead to pain in the upper or lower back.
Back pain is one of the most common reasons why people see their doctor, miss work, or file a disability claim. The good news is that back pain is best treated without heavy narcotics or even surgery. How? The physicians at Herald Square Chiropractic and Sport use a total body approach, incorporating chiropractic adjustment with medical and sports therapy, functional exercises, nutrition counseling, and ergonomic adjustments to not only address the pain but its underlying causes as well. Imagine being able to get better, not just mask the pain.
The best way to ensure back pain does not return to complete the entirety of your treatment plan and avoid falling into bad habits. The goal at Herald Square Chiropractic and Sport is to provide each patient with the tools to care for themselves for the rest of their lives, not just in the initial palliative phase of treatment. By incorporating restorative care, strengthening exercises, and overall wellness coaching in addition to palliative care, Herald Square Chiropractic and Sport equips you with the tools necessary to keep your pain from returning.
