Back Pain

Back pain is one of the most common conditions that chiropractic treatment can benefit. Back injuries can often be the result of recent or past automobile and sporting injuries. This condition is even seen due to prolonged sitting and simply bending forward. Beyond muscle spasms and strains, back pain can be caused by herniated/bulging discs, degenerated discs, nerve impingement, lower extremity muscle tightness and weak core musculature to name a few. If left untreated back pain has shown to trigger other conditions such as leg pains (sciatica), lower extremity numbness and tingling as well as weakness. With a thorough exam, TOTALHEALTH of Naples can diagnose and determine the correct treatment options for musculoskeletal back pain. Treatment options can include spinal decompression, massage therapy, chiropractic adjustments and functional rehab exercises.

If you're suffering from lower back pain you're not alone. More than 80% of North Americans will at some time in their life suffer from the disabling confines of lower back pain.

According to experts, lower back pain is the number one disability culprit in workers' compensation claims and accounts for more than $50 billion annually in the US through medical care and lost production. In addition, the latest research shows most lower back problems which cause low back pain do not fully resolve without extensive treatment and proper rehabilitation, contrary to previous beliefs.

The chiropractic doctor is unique in the health care field in that much of the training in chiropractic colleges is specifically aimed at identifying and successfully treating and managing lower back conditions. General medical practitioners generally lack adequate training in this area and have not learned the skills necessary to most effectively identify and treat most back conditions.
