One of the worst places to be hurt is in your back. I always say that if your back, feet, or head hurts then everything will hurt. Even, in my experience, pains in the torso or neck are better to deal with than that of pain in the back. Often, it doesn’t matter if you are sitting, standing, or lying down. The pain seems to throb or ache no matter what position you are in. There can be any number of reasons for your back pain, but at the end of the day the result is the same: you feel miserable.
These kinds of pains are those that many people live every day with. Those with chronic conditions such as fibromyalgia or arthritis deal with these issues constantly and if you have a pinched nerve or herniated disk it certainly isn’t a walk in the park. Depending on the severity of your injury or pain level that day, a walk in the park may not even be an option. It can severely impact your day to day life and you may find yourself missing out on some wonderful things. This can be upsetting and frustrating on top of already being painful. If you are experiencing mood changes or notice a change in your personality since developing these back pains, we highly suggest you going to a psychologist. Many people who deal with chronic pain develop mental health issues and there is nothing to be ashamed of if you believe you may have as well.
If you don’t want to look as surgery as a solution, or if you can’t due to other medical issues, then chiropractic care may be able to help you. We don’t prescribe medication and look for other methods to get you back to feeling like your old self. While we know that sometimes more drastic measures are needed to alleviate your pain, we like to use muscular and skeletal manipulation to help reduce pain levels and possibly even fix whatever the issue may be.
