No one wants to be in chronic pain. Many of us reach a stage in our lives where we believe that our choice is simply to live with pain of headaches, upper or lower back pain or tingling in the arms and legs. Some of us have seen a doctor yet very little is done except to prescribe pain medication and muscle relaxants. Yet, if this is all you have done, you have missed out on a major part of healthcare that is available to patients with chronic pain. The way to improvement for these problems may be found in chiropractic treatment.
Here at Lee Chiropractic in Irvine, California, we specialize in the latest techniques to eliminate back pain. While our focus in on the back and spine, injuries in the back can cause discomfort in other parts of the body. Sometimes people find they have numbness and tingling in the arms or legs with or without corresponding back pain. Yet, when they visit the chiropractor, this condition is improved or cured altogether by treating the back and spinal area. Neck pain is quite common with back injuries since the top of the spine forms the neck region of the body. Migraine headaches and other types of headaches can also be caused by injury or excess pressure in the spine.
Upper back injuries can migrate pain to the shoulder, neck and trunk area. Pain in these areas can be tricky to find because the symptoms are not always felt at the point of injury. Mid back pain is often felt in the trunk area, but can be felt in the upper or lower back. Bulging discs or herniated discs can cause difficulty with walking, bending and lifting especially in the lower back. Plus, without proper treatment these injuries can reoccur often worse than before. Sciatica is often associated with low back pain which is pain that shoots down the legs. It is the result of a pinched nerve in the lower back. This can be debilitating for some, but usually responds very well to chiropractic treatment.
