Back Pain Solutions
Back pain is one of the most common issues among people. 80% of Americans suffer from back pain. Daily tasks can become a struggle, whether it be going to work, sleeping, sitting down, standing up, etc. These simple things become a challenge when experiencing pain in the upper, middle, or lower back. Back pain can be caused by sprained ligaments, strained muscles, ruptured discs, irritated joints and even simple movements, like over-stretching. As people age, there is a decrease in bone strength and muscle elasticity. This causes discs in the back to lose fluid and flexibility. A disc may rupture or bulge that puts pressure on more than 50 nerves. When these nerves become irritated, back pain occurs. Back discomfort that is not treated can cause your posture to worsen and may in turn cause new body issues as well. Wonderfully enough, in 90% of all cases, pain can improve without surgery, according to the American Association of Neurological Surgeons.
There are many non-invasive and prescription-free ways to help reduce/prevent back issues. With the help of treatments available through Total Health, people are finding relief from their back concerns. To optimize your movement and quality of life, try a holistic approach rather than going straight to surgery or numbing the pain with prescriptions, or even hot packs, that are just temporary fixes.
