Try Huntsville Best Chiropractor If You Are Suffering From Back Pain
With the constant stress that people experience everyday along with the physical demands of our jobs, many Americans experience low back pain at one point or another. There are instances when you experience back pain and it goes away. But there are also cases where you need to seek medical help. Most people would turn to physicians to ask for relief and they would recommend different treatments and therapies. Physicians would recommend a wide range of treatments but few would give a referral especially for spinal manipulation.
Back pain becomes a hindrance to excercising in the gim, playing in the park with you grand children on playground equipment, driving long distance, lifting heavy objects, the usually everyday task. That is why someone suffering from back pain will try almost any remedy, including acupuncture.
There have been ongoing controversies and debates as to whether spinal manipulation is indeed effective. And yet, there are already a lot of people who have also tried it. Spinal manipulation makes use of conventional treatment just like other traditional therapies like acupuncture, meditation and heat.
Every person has a different experience when it comes to dealing with back pain. In most cases, it goes away over time especially when you find an effective relief of the different symptoms and if you can get a solution to enable the body to heal. Contrary to what most people believe, you do not have to resort to use of medications or to undergo surgeries just to get effective solution.
Over the years, there have been a steady increase among patients who seek the expertise of chiropractors.
In a study that was conducted from 2002 to 2008, it was found out that number of patients suffering from back pain sought to have chiropractic care has increased. This figure only goes to show that patients nowadays are trusting other traditional therapies and they now have access to different alternatives when it comes to treating back pain. According to a study conducted by the Annals of Internal Medicine, they recommend the use of traditional therapies for patients like for instance spinal manipulation, massage and heat. They recommend these treatments as first-line therapies.
Every treatment for back pain has its share of potential risks and harm. The same thing applies for those who seek spinal manipulation treatment. Physicians are quite hesitant when it comes to referring patients to physical therapists or chiropractors because they fear the potential harm and risk. But if you are going to look and analyze the different studies, you cannot find any adverse event or any serious problem that occurred brought about by this kind of treatment. Of course, there are cases where patients may experience problems especially if it results from improper manipulation. Another concern is that fact that the cost of having such treatment itself does not have insurance. Most insurance companies do not cover spinal manipulation. Physicians would often suggest the use of medications and this is much cheaper. But there are instances where physicians would recommend invasive treatments and these cost more than the cost of availing spinal manipulation treatment.
On top of that, the use of medications and surgeries can lead to side effects. They pose more risks and harm. Some people often rely heavily on pain medications and although they can immediately alleviate the pain, they may have side effects. Patients also should not misuse and overuse the use of medications. Like for instance, in using opiods, you should not misuse it as it has health risks.
