This week we really wanted to focus on back pain. Back pain is an epidemic that affects thousands if not millions of Americans every single day. While every person’s pain is caused by a different set of circumstances, we never want to see someone suffering, especially if it can be helped. If you have back pain, especially chronic back pain, we want you to know that there may be things that you can do to relieve yourself of it. Getting rid of your back pain may just be the best thing you’ve ever been able to do for yourself.
If you are like us, then you will do just about everything possible before going into surgery. Surgery is time consuming, stressful, and often very expensive. Even things like medication may not be your favorite option. While they may help, pills often only mask the symptoms and don’t get to the root of the problem. While this is okay for something like a minor pulled muscle, it will not be much help for a severe injury or something that has pain that lasts for more than a day or two. You don’t want to take too much medication for many reasons, but what else can you do if you have a hurt back?
If you are in pain, then you should definitely come into DiBella Chiropractic. We often see a lot of people during the warmer months because we are all more active when it’s warmer. While the winter does have issues of its own, the summer sees us all enjoying ourselves which unfortunately can mean that it’s easier for us to get hurt. After all, don’t you get excited for the first few warm days? I don’t know about you, but I love going outside and walking around, maybe tossing a ball around with some friends, and doing other things around the house to spruce the place up a bit and clean it. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve fallen off of a step ladder while trying to clean on top of the cabinets and hurt my back while doing a spring cleaning type thing in my house. If this happens to you, then don’t hesitate to come into DiBella Chiropractic as soon as you can!
