Back Pain Relief in Lacey WA
If you are living with chronic back pain then our chiropractic care in Lacey WA might help you find back pain relief. Back pain is one of the most common ailments that people deal with these days and it can lead to loss of movement, hinder work and even take out the joy of living.
Statistics show that almost 80% of the population will experience back pain in their lifetime and over 50% the population will experience more than 10 episodes of back pain in their lifetime. Over 149 million days of work are lost a year and an astronomical amount between a $100 -200 billion/year which 2/3rds are due to decreased wages and productivity.
Back pain is not fun but the good news is we at Warwick Chiropractic & Massage can help.
Causes of Back Pain
There are numerous causes of back pain, too many to list in fact. Here are some of the most common causes that we see in our practice:
- Sedentary lifestyle
- Too little exercise
- Too much exercise
- Poor posture
- Poor weight management
- Trauma (accidents & injuries)
- and so much more.
We are hard on our bodies and it’s not uncommon to see a patient who starts off with back pain to then ignore it and hope it goes away. Patient might take pain killers or think they can just walk it off, but if left unchecked, that simple acute pain could quickly become chronic pain, and chronic pain is tougher to treat.
If you’re at that point now, do not hesitate, walk in and see us today or schedule an appointment.
How Does Back Pain Form?
When injured our body has a very unique way of protecting the injured area with inflammation or what we call toxins to protect the injured site. Over time, that injured site builds toxins that form scarring or adhesions to various tissues. The adhesions and inflammation limits your ability to move in a particular area and sends out a signal of pain to tell you something is not right. Sometimes those pain signals get ignored and other injuries occur or you learn to adapt and continue on.
It’s what I call, “the straw that broke the camel’s back.” It’s not the straw that did it, it’s the whole hay bale that you have been carrying around that just one more piece of straw did you in.” It’s usually the same story, “I was just bending down to pick up something like a paper bag, a pencil or in the shower when my back went out”.
So what are you going to do about it?
What Back Pain Relief Treatments Are Available?
We live in a time where there are fortunately many options available. At home treatments may include
- Pain killers
- Yoga rollers
- Simple stretches
If none of these treatment options are providing you with the back pain relief desired, then now is certainly the time to come in.
Our services include:
Non Invasive, Conservative Care
Each of these treatments are non invasive, conservative, offer little to no side effects and all have sub categories of treatment options within. For example, Dr Warwick offers the Palmer Methods Technique, Zone Technique, Lumbar-Flexion Distraction Technique and more. You can see the full list of chiropractic techniques that we can offer patients as we look to relieve their back pain.
Which of these techniques is only decided upon after we understand where your pain is coming from. Research has shown the intervertebral disc is most likely the cause of your pain. The disc is vastly innervated by nerves; in fact our whole body is communicating with nerves called the nervous system. Every cell, tissue and organ is deeply and vastly supplied by the nervous system. When a nerve or nerves get pinched or have pressure on them they cannot communicate to the tissues or cells.
We many times notice it as pain. Many times there can even be no symptoms of pain but how most people determine our health is when we don’t have pain. Chiropractic treatment through an overwhelming response of level of satisfaction helps YOU who suffer with Back Pain.
