Regardless of its severity or cause can affect all aspects of life. 31 million Americans will experience back pain at some point during their life. One – half of working Americans have back pain symptoms each year. It is one of the most common causes of missed work and is the second most cause for the people to visit their doctor.
The spine is a complicated structure of bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves. Causes of low back pain can range from acute damage or injury to any of the listed structures. In addition, poor posture, obesity, arthritis, disease of internal organs, or bone loss. Back pain is not something to ignore. Pain is your internal check engine light that comes on to tell you something is wrong.
Chiropractic spinal adjustment is the most cost-effective and safe treatment for back pain. The adjustment will reduce pain, as well as increases flexibility and motion. Extensive research studies recommend that people who suffer from low back pain choose conservative care first, prior to the use of drugs and surgery. Chiropractic care is proven to be safe and effective form of drug-less and conservative care to treat acute and chronic low back pain in children and adults. The doctors of Vitality Chiropractic & Family Wellness are well trained to assess, diagnose, and treat all types of back pain.
Regardless of its severity or cause, can make every day functioning difficult. Fortunately, the chiropractors at Vitality Chiropractic & Family Wellness in Wake Forest are skilled at assessing and treating all types of neck pain.
Your neck, also called the cervical spine, begins at the base of the skull and contains seven small vertebrae. Incredibly, the cervical spine supports the full weight of your head, which is on average about 12 pounds. While the cervical spine can move your head in nearly every direction, this flexibility makes the neck very susceptible to pain and injury.
The neck’s susceptibility to injury is due in part to biomechanics. Activities and events that affect cervical biomechanics include extended sitting, repetitive movement, accidents, falls and blows to the body or head, normal aging, and every day wear and tear. Neck pain can be very bothersome, and it can have a variety of causes. Some sources of neck pain are injuries, accidents, arthritis, poor posture, forward head carriage, stress and emotional tension.
During your first visit to Vitality Chiropractic and Family Wellness, the doctor will ask questions about your symptoms as well as perform an exam to determine cause of the problem. Some cases may need further testing, such as x-ray or MRI, to diagnose the condition.
Chiropractic adjustments are used to help people with neck pain. The adjustment may help by restoring communication between the brain and body. The muscle spasms and tension reduces when the nerves are able to communicate better with the tissues. The adjustment will also help improve the mobility of the spinal joints, and restore range of motion.
