As you are likely aware, back pain can be frustratingly debilitating, and it’s also exceptionally common, affecting over 80% of the adult population. Low back pain is especially prevalent, characterized by sharp, stabbing pain. Because it is so painful, many people turn to over-the-counter painkillers or ask their doctor for a prescription, but research shows that chiropractic care is one of the safest and most effective solutions for back pain. Here at Cornerstone Wellness Center, we are committed to dramatically reducing your pain and returning you to your normal, daily activities as quickly as possible.
Symptoms Associated with a Back Condition
Symptoms associated with back pain make themselves quite evident, as most movement can be painful; However, some are less apparent. Not all back pain is sharp and localized. For example, a compressed disc in the spine can cause tingling or numbness in the feet. Some symptoms of a back abnormality can be a general weakness in the back or even in the legs or feet. Calf cramps also need to be addressed as they can point to issues related to your back.
Possible Causes of Back Pain
The physical structure of our backs is remarkable, with the nerves in the low back supplying feeling throughout the body and powering the muscles in the pelvis, legs, and feet. And given that the back is responsible for the majority of our everyday movements, including walking, bending, and reaching, it’s not surprising that most of us will have to manage a back condition at some time in our lives.
Back pain issues may arise from normal wear and tear; some conditions are genetic; others result from a trauma such as an auto accident, which can bring about disc herniations, bulges, SI joint dysfunctions, strains, sprains, and spasms. Yet all conditions relating to the back need to be evaluated and addressed as soon as they make themselves known.
Treating Back Pain Conditions
The most important step in treatment is the diagnosis. We are highly trained and have years of experience in diagnosing and treating complex spinal conditions.
Cornerstone Wellness Center participates in the Medicare DME (Durable Medical Equipment) program. The purpose of a DME back brace is to provide stabilization for healthy movement during everyday activities. The posterior and anterior panels of the brace work together, giving opposing support to stabilize the lumbar-sacral region of the spine. The result is a supported and pressure-free spine held in a healthy, correct posture.
Patient treatment outcomes can be vastly improved when DME is prescribed and utilized in combination with chiropractic care.
Depending on your particular condition, Dr. Warren and the team of specialists at Cornerstone Wellness Center are prepared to offer highly effective treatments, personalized to your injury. In concert with spinal adjustments, we may recommend a combination of proven therapies to help relieve pain and restore health. Some of those procedures may include:
