Back Pain Q & A

What causes back pain?

Back pain is the leading cause of disability around the world. While there are many reasons you may be experiencing pain, some of the most common back pain causes include:

  • Muscle strain
  • Slipped disc
  • Bulging disc
  • Ligament strain
  • Heavy lifting
  • Injury
  • Arthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Scoliosis

Any kind of back pain that lasts for six weeks or less is called acute back pain. If you have chronic back pain that lasts for three months or more, contact the experts at State Line Health Care LLC right away for a consultation.

How can I prevent back pain?

Even the healthiest, most active individuals can’t prevent back pain. However, you can lower your risk with the following back pain prevention measures:

Exercise

Regular aerobic exercise and muscle building can help you strengthen your core and back muscles over time. Flexibility in your hips also keeps your pelvic bones aligned to reduce back pain and prevent it from worsening.

Quit smoking

Experts believe that long-term smoking causes receptor desensitization, which can heighten pain in smokers. Talk to the health care team about your options for quitting smoking for good to reduce back pain.

Weight loss

When you carry extra weight, especially around your abdomen, it puts pressure on your back. Maintaining a healthy weight can help minimize and prevent back pain.

Better posture

Constant slouching can cause aches, pains, and discomfort in your shoulders and upper back, so make sure you stand and sit up straight whenever possible.

How is back pain treated?

State Line Health Care LLC offers a number of back pain treatments at their office:

Spinal decompression

Spinal decompression gently stretches the spine to relieve pressure from herniated discs or pinched nerves.

Deep tissue laser therapy

Deep tissue laser therapy is a noninvasive treatment for acute back pain. This quick, effective procedure helps stimulate your body’s natural healing response to reduce inflammation in your back. With state-of-the-art technology, the State Line Health Care LLC team uses the Diowave, Aspen, and Nexus lasers to effectively target back pain without surgery.

Ultrasound therapy

Ultrasound therapy uses gentle ultrasound energy to speed up the healing process in the back. The State Line Health Care LLC team often uses ultrasound therapy to treat chronic low back pain.

Manual chiropractic adjustment

A chiropractic adjustment, or spinal manipulation, manipulates the vertebrae in your spine to increase the range of motion in your back and reduce nerve irritation.

Electromagnetic stimulation

Electromagnetic stimulation uses electrodes to stimulate nerves and reduce back pain.\

To provide the most comprehensive care possible, the State Line Health Care LLC team also offers nutritional counseling, massages certified by the American Massage Therapy Association, therapy exercises, and more to relieve back pain. Call the office or schedule a consultation online.
