Back pain is one the most common complaints on the planet. Nine out of ten people will experience it in their lifetime and five of ten working adults experience it year after year. Whether you lead an active lifestyle that has landed you with acute pain from injury or you are dealing with chronic pain due to illness or a lifetime of wear and tear, we can help you to find relief through back pain therapy. Your spine is made up of a vast network of nerves, muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints, any of which can be the source of your pain. In fact, the large nerves of the spine also connect to the arms and legs and can create pain in these extremities, as well.
When Your Back Treatment Isn’t Helping
Some approaches to treating back pain simply do not help. Things like prescription painkillers only address the symptoms and not the cause. In order to experience real relief, consider investigating the possible causes of your pain. Is it related to posture, poor physical activity, or stress? Could it be caused by nutritional deficiencies or is there another underlying condition causing it? These are all questions we help answer at Blatman Health and Wellness Center.
Where to Turn for Back Pain Relief
Back pain relief is what we do, and we’re here to help you find the best solution. Treatments can include medications, of course, and they often do. However, our staff will also help you create awareness around the reality of the addictive nature of pain medication and will support you with additional alternatives. Dry Needling is one such alternative that often provides relief. Another that you may not have tried yet is trigger point injection. We offer both of these modalities as well as other mind/body techniques to help with pain relief.
