Four of every five physical medicine patients seek treatment because of low back pain, which is one of the most common causes of chronic pain. The cause of lower back pain varies, but it can often be attributed to a pulled muscle or disc resulting from heavy lifting, an accident or injury, or even something simple like bending or lifting the wrong way. Determining the cause of lower back pain is the first step toward finding an appropriate course of treatment.
Traditional medicine tends to treat the symptoms of chronic low back pain with muscle relaxants, pain medication, rest, hot and cold packs, and physical therapy treatments. As a last resort, when other low back pain treatment fails, surgery is sometimes an option. However, this sometimes ends badly, and failed back surgery can lead to a recurrence or even worsening of symptoms.
At Innovative Health and Wellness, our doctors are well versed in treating back pain. Using the most current diagnostic tools, they seek to determine the root of each patient’s pain, in order to design a personalized plan for treatment. Embracing a holistic healing approach to wellness, Innovative Health and Wellness combines traditional medicine with treatments that include chiropractic care, physical therapy, low back pain exercises, and many other physical medicine options.
