Back pain is one of the worst pains you can experience. After all, there isn’t much that you do without the aid of your back, and the things you can do without it, such as lying down or just sitting, still hurt nonetheless.
So, what are you to do? Fortunately, engaging in regular visits with your Athens chiropractor can help.
Statistics suggest that approximately 80% of people will suffer from back pain at least one point in their life. In fact, back pain is fairly prevalent for women who are pregnant, people who have been involved in an auto accident, and anyone who has had a slip and fall.
Plus, your occupation can be contributing to the ache that you feel in your upper or lower back. Jobs that are strenuous, like construction and tree trimming, could hurt the vertebrae and discs in your back due to overuse or turning the wrong way, whereas a sedentary desk job can be the culprit, especially if your posture is poor or you don’t have a desk that supports a healthy spine.
When you make an appointment to see Dr. Hitchcock for your back pain, he will conduct a comprehensive exam to determine the source or cause, providing you with all of the treatment options available for your particular situation.
He will answer all of your questions (whether they be about your specific back pain or back pain in general), providing you with the information you need to make an informed decision. Together you will create a treatment plan focused on your particular needs and desired outcome.
At Family Chiropractic of Athens, you also have the option of massage therapy to ease your back pain. This type of treatment is great for reducing the stress and tension in your muscles, lessening your back pain in the process.
Don’t let your back pain keep you from enjoying life. Call Dr. Hitchcock, your Athens chiropractor that cares, and see what he can do for you!
