We Treat Back Pain at Its Source
Nearly 80 percent of the world’s population will experience back pain at some point in their lives. Back pain is the fifth most common reason people see a doctor according to the National Institutes of Health.
Several factors contribute to pain:
- Age: The components of the spine grow weaker over time, and as we age we become more susceptible to back injuries and conditions like herniated discs.
- Health Habits and History: Smoking, inadequate exercise, and excess weight all increase the chances of back problems. In addition, long periods of sitting, lifting heavy weights, and performing physically repetitive tasks can weaken the spine.
- Lifestyle: Stress and poor posture play a role in back pain development. Additionally, certain occupations that strain the back will eventually take their toll.
In many cases, back pain goes away on its own, and treatment is not necessary.
