So you’ve got a bad case of back pain. You have already tried everything to fix it; you’ve exercised, stretched, bought an inversion table, built up core strength, become more active, stopped lifting heavy objects, and fixed your posture. Even after all that, you are still experiencing pain! When all else fails, a chiropractor can fix your back problems. No matter what else you’ve tried, you can never be more than an appointment away from your road to recovery and a better, less painful life.
Once you’ve made your appointment (the first one is free at many reputable chiropractors), just stop by and the chiropractor will evaluate your situation and try to determine the best course of action to fix your back. Many times it’s a simple misalignment, slipped disk, or spinal compression, all of which can be fixed quickly and painlessly by the right practitioner. The only catch is, no matter how minor your problem is, you won’t know until you get diagnosed!
After the physician has evaluated your back, he will probably put you through a quick treatment for back pain, that may offer immediate relief of your pain. These treatments can be easily performed by a trained professional and require only one visit, and they could even fix your pain altogether without you ever having to come back. The most common procedures include chiropractic massage, a simple realignment, or a professional spinal decompression.
While many problems can be resolved in one visit, it is recommended that you return at least one or two more times to ensure your back has been taken care of. You can also get relaxing treatments that will feel good whether your back is still in pain or not. Regardless of whether or not you still experience pain, return visits are necessary and provide the chiropractor a chance to explain your options to prevent further pain or to set up a long-term plan in case your pain returns.
If you are in severe pain, there’s no sense waiting around for it to get better on its own. Your best bet is to go visit a chiropractor for evaluation, and he will likely be able to construct a treatment plan that cures your pain for good. In severe situations, he may refer you to a surgeon for treatment, but at least then you know that surgery was a must for your case. So what are you waiting for, make that appointment and start your road to a better life today!
