Back Pain Treatments

Back pain and how to treat it!

Back pain can be a complex issue if neglected can lead to a number of symptoms: let’s mention just a few- localized or diffused pain, muscle weakness, pins and needles, numbness, swelling, and decreased range of motion.
Compensation patterns are forming to augment the pain symptoms, it is very important for your back to be properly evaluated and assessed so a proper treatment plan is chosen.
The treatment plan can include the following: hands-on osteopathic /massage therapy treatment where an appropriate form of techniques are used to restore your healthy functions, home care stretches, and hydrotherapy are also given.
Recently we have been using a very successful system the radial and focused shock wave therapy that has been proven to deliver promising results. This treatment can be used independently or in conjunction with osteopathic/massage therapy techniques to deliver the best treatment outcome to our patients.
Quite often only after one visit the pain level decreases and the range of motion is increased.
It is very important to start treatment soon enough since longterm chronic conditions are treated longer and harder.
So, make a priority and be good to your back.
Do something every day to keep your back strong, flexible and pain-free.
Remember: as they say” an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”
