If you have back pain, a well-meaning friend may tell you what you should do based on what worked for them in a past experience. Research in studying back pain sometimes isn’t much better. Studies are done on each therapy listed below, but often without first investigating the source of pain. This is why we are left with such confusing and conflicting information. Back pain sufferers are wondering if they should get a massage, see a chiropractor, go to a yoga class, etc. Even more frustrating are the numerous companies out there that capitalize on the confusion. Shady practices of selling supplements, braces, bracelets, inserts and countless other products are all too frequent. This is why we consider education such an important part of the therapeutic process.
Each of the following back pain therapies can be extremely effective if applied to the correct condition. If one of these therapies is applied in a situation where it isn’t warranted however, it will not give much if any relief. Our office is committed to understanding each patient’s unique circumstance and ailments and applying the correct therapy.
