Back Pain


It is estimated that around 65 million Americans regularly suffer from back pain. It is certainly one of the things which causes many lost working days and, more importantly, it is a great source of chronic pain. This can range from minor aches to searing pain of the kind which absolutely wipes you out.

Lower Back Pain

Back pain and associated painkiller dependency can make life very miserable especially if it remains untreated for any length of time. Luckily the doctors at Abundant Life Chiropractic Health Center are here to help with the very latest in chiropractic techniques but first you need to know a little about how back pain works and what exactly it is.

What are the Symptoms of Back Pain?

With such a large number of American adults suffering from back pain at some point in their lives it is clear that much of this is being managed with the use of painkilling medication although some people have reported that, despite this, they still suffer with breakthrough pain.

For some unfortunates the associated depression, anxiety and sleeping problems undoubtedly make a bad situation much worse.

According to WebMD, when it comes to assessing the most common symptoms of back pain there is no one simple answer because the structure of the back is a complex and multi-faceted thing. Most pain is felt in the lower back – or lumbar region – but many can suffer with upper-back or middle-back pain. Symptoms to be aware of include:

  • Aching and/or stiffness which doesn’t go away
  • Sharp, sudden pain after lifting heavy objects or twisting
  • Pain that radiates down from the buttock, through the thigh and into the foot
  • Restriction of certain movement or the inability to stand up straight without pain

Back pain can sometimes be a symptom of a more serious problem, for instance pain in the upper back can indicate a heart attack. Other issues of concern could be:

  • Numbness, tingling or weakness in the arms, legs or groin
  • An increase in pain when you cough
  • Pain which is accompanied by fever or other symptoms may indicate an infection

This is a very generalized list of symptoms and if you are in any doubt as to the cause of your chronic back pain the doctors at Abundant Life Chiropractic Health Center can help you.

  • Less Pain
  • Improved Range of Motion
  • Muscle Relaxation
  • Better Sleep
  • More Energy
  • No more headaches
  • Identifying the Pain at Source

The cause of back pain is sometimes very obvious but may also be elusive, with pain showing up in sites which have never sustained any direct injuries. This is where chiropractic works its magic.   The doctors at Abundant Life Chiropractic use a technique called torque release.  Torque Release uses a neurological- based analysis system to determine the exact cause of the pain.  From there the pain melts away with specific and gentle instrument based adjustments.

  • Offering a Long Term Solution

Medication certainly can provide a long term solution, but the problem is that medication brings its own problems and side effects, not to mention eventually you will build a tolerance and it becomes less effective. Medication merely masks pain, it doesn’t cure it. Chiropractic, on the other hand, offers a long term, safe and effective solution.

  • Chiropractic Treatment is Safe

If you are looking for a pain relief treatment that has no negative side effects, is long lasting and suitable for all types of chronic back pain, chiropractic is the one for you.
