Protect Yourself This Winter From Low Back Pain!

The primary reason patients come to our clinic is because they are in pain and this pain has affected their daily lives, whether it is at work or at home to the point where they are unable to perform daily tasks pain free.  Our number one goal when we set up a care plan for a patient is to get that patient out of pain as soon as possible, so they can perform those activities in their daily lives that they have been unable to do because of the pain.

Chiropractic is a safe and proven form of therapy for low back pain and can also reduce reoccurring injuries. It focuses on correcting a dysfunctional area in the spine called vertebral subluxations. Chiropractic has been proven to diminish pain, reduce recovery time and cut down the need for medication and physical therapy. Many patients who suffer from back pain reach for over the counter medications or seek out prescription drugs. Studies have found that pain medication not only can cause a variety of undesired side effects, but are minimally effective in treating back pain and only cover up the symptoms without treating the cause.

 

Recent studies released by The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) confirms that despite the severity of back pain, there is hope for full recovery by means of getting treatment from a chiropractor versus going through invasive back surgery. The study focused on workers suffering from back injuries and released data on just how unnecessary back surgery may be.

When back pain patients saw a back surgeon first, they were 42.7% more likely to go through with invasive back surgery as a means of treatment, Compared to only 1.5% of patients who saw a chiropractor first.

Chiropractic works, and it works without invasive surgeries or habit forming pain medications. According to this study, more than 98% of patients who saw a chiropractor experienced a significant reduction or elimination of their back pain, and had no need to see a back surgeon.

 

Chiropractic has helped millions of Americans avoid back surgery through non-invasive treatment methods and at Badgerland Chiropractic we utilize safe and effective techniques such as Flexion-Distraction and Sacro-Occipital technique for our patients with acute low back injuries and disc herniations along with chiropractic adjustments to help maintain alignment in the spine so the soft tissues and ligaments can begin to heal.

 

In addition to the benefits already described, chiropractic care for back pain is a wallet friendly option. When considering the shorter disability time that chiropractic adjustments afford, the cost of lost time and wages make chiropractic even more attractive for the budget minded patient.
