When looking for a chiropractor, you should look for one that follows a whole-body approach to wellness. These practitioners treat patients for the pain they may be experiencing and look at the patient's lifestyle, eating habits, and overall health. Our team at Jacksonville Health & Wellness Center believes that a patient-centric philosophy helps patients make changes for better overall health. Our first job is to help our patients get relief from their pain before addressing whatever is causing the pain in the first place.
Causes of Back Pain
In the U.S., nearly 65 million people report frequent episodes of back pain. According to Georgetown University Health Policy Institute, eight percent of all adults experience chronic back pain, limiting their everyday activities. Here are some interesting statistics regarding back pain:
- Around 83 million workdays are missed because of back pain, making it the leading cause of missed workdays.
- Those with back pain spend almost 200 million days in bed per year.
- One in four adults that suffer from back pain is in poor health.
- Back pain can cause adults to feel sad, worthless, depressed, and hopeless.
How Chiropractic Care Can Reduce Back Pain
Chiropractic care is one of the best ways to treat chronic back pain. Our chiropractors consider each patient's medical history when attempting to identify the root cause of pain and immobility. Our chiropractors will also perform a musculoskeletal examination and may order lab tests and imaging tests. They will use all these tools to determine the source of the pain and the course of action. Potential options for back pain treatment include:
- Manual adjustments
- Hot and cold therapies
- TENS treatments
- Exercise as suggested by the chiropractor
- Nutrition consultation and management
- Pain relief
Every case is different, that is why our team at Jacksonville Health & Wellness offers a full line of services to help our patients suffering from pain issues. We can help those suffering from a variety of illnesses including:
- Autoimmune conditions
- Dementia and related cognitive issues
- Blood issues like diabetes
