Treating Lower Back Pain with Chiropractic
Lower back pain is one of the most common problems plaguing adults today. When patients visit a physiotherapist, back pain is one of the most common injuries that are reported. Causes include muscle strain, accidental twisting of the spine, improper lifting of a heavy object, or sitting too long in chairs with inadequate support. Some people find that using CBD oil for pain relief could help, however, you might want you to check with your doctor if you are thinking about going down the route. If you are interested in finding out more about CBD products and its uses there are places that have more information, there are even places to find CBD oil for sale. As a chiropractor treating patients here in the Burbank community for over 30 years, lower back pain is one of the most common issues we hear about.
Just last month, the 102-year-old medical institution, the American College of Physicians, issued their own guidelines for noninvasively treating lower back pain.
Published on February 14, 2017, in the Annals of Internal Medicine, Noninvasive Treatments for Acute, Subacute, and Chronic Low Back Pain: A Clinical Practice Guideline from the American College of Physicians indicates alternative therapies, including spinal manipulation, as a preferred method of treatment.
This is in direct response to the tremendous epidemic of pain medication abuse in this country, most often the extremely addictive opioid variety of painkillers. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, it is estimated that at least 2.1 million people in the United States are suffering from substance use disorders related to prescription opioid pain relievers.
The American College of Physicians new guidelines recommends several types of treatment we have known to be effective for many years. These include spinal manipulation, acupuncture, massage therapy, and electrical muscle stimulation. Utilizing these methods in unison can bring the swiftest pain relief possible and encourage the body to rapidly heal itself.
