Back Pain Q & A
Young Health USA
What are the most common causes of back pain?
Some 60% to 80% of the adult population in this United States suffer from back pain, which is among the most common reasons for missed days from work. Back pain can occur for a multitude of reasons and most often affects the lower back. Pain can begin abruptly, caused by an accident or lifting something heavy, or develop gradually as the result of age-related changes, or strain caused by repetitive stress, such as jobs that require lifting. It can also be the result of various disease or conditions such as: arthritis, infection, scoliosis, cancer, kidney stones, pregnancy, fibromyalgia, and osteoporosis.
How does Dr. Young treat back pain?
As with any issue, back pain treatment is individualized at Young Health USA and varies depending on the underlying cause. Dr. Young starts by conducting a thorough examination and discussing your symptoms to determine the reason for your pain. In some cases, X-rays or other imaging may be ordered. Once the cause is diagnosed, a customized plan is developed that may include one or more of the following:
- Spinal adjustments.
- Spinal decompression
- Electric nerve stimulation
- Ice/cold therapy
- Ultrasound therapy
- Therapeutic massage
- PRP therapy
What are the benefits of treating my back pain with chiropractic care?
As a chiropractor, Dr. Young is trained in the study of the musculoskeletal system and the structure of the back. He can address disorders that affect your muscles, joints, bones, and nerves. Moreover, rather than merely prescribing drugs or another form of temporary symptom relief, he diagnoses and treats the underlying problem. Along with providing long-term relief, your plan will help prevent future back pain. Chiropractic treatment is natural, drug-free, and non-invasive. The corrective spinal manipulations not only offer relief from acute or chronic back pain but also help to treat an array of other ailments, as well.
