If you suffer from back pain, you're in good company. Nearly all Americans will suffer from this at some point in their lives, along with neck pain and headache. Unfortunately, many pain sufferers who seek conventional care end up with a bevy of pain medications and no real relief. Chiropractic treatments, coupled with massage therapy, physical therapy, and sports medicine can not only relieve your pain, but also correct the underlying cause, ensuring permanent relief.
Your back is comprised of bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons and discs. A strained muscle or ligament from improperly lifting heavy objects or an abrupt movement can cause a reoccurring muscle spasm and pain. A structural problem, such as a bulging or herniated disc, is also a common cause.
If you have been in a car accident or sustained a sports injury, you may have a herniated disc. This occurs when a sudden collision puts unexpected stress on your spinal column, causing a disc to slip out of place. A herniated disc will then put pressure on your nerves, causing pain. If one of the two bottom discs in your spine slip, it will put pressure on the sciatic nerve, which is the main nerve that travels down your leg. You will experience sharp, shooting pain in your leg, and without proper treatment, the affected muscles may become damaged. You may have difficulty walking or performing basic activities, and experience unexpected tingling sensations in your back, legs and toes.
Traditional medicine uses medication to cover up pain, rather than treat the underlying cause. Here at Dr. Ron Fried Chiropractic and Wellness Center in Rochester Hills, we believe in a whole body approach to managing and treating your back pain. Dr. Fried and his chiropractor and wellness team combine chiropractic with other non-invasive treatments including physical therapy and sports medicine. This whole body approach to pain management and wellness teaches patients to listen to their bodies and helps promote natural healing from within.
Dr. Fried is a skilled chiropractor who has been treating pain patients for 22 years. He will perform a serious of alignments and decompression treatments to heighten the space between the discs in your back. This allows the herniated disc to return to its normal size and placement. Massage treatments also help promote healing, by improving blood flow and circulation. The act of kneading muscles relieves tension, pain and spams, while removing built-up lactic acid and other toxins. This stimulates the healing process and helps your body repair itself - no medication or surgery required.
If you suffer from back pain, neck pain or chronic headache, we invite you to visit our Rochester Hills office for a diagnostic consultation. Dr. Fried will discuss our whole body approach to wellness and determine if chiropractic care is right for you.
