New Solutions to Lower Back Pain in Gig Harbor Washington

Lower back pain is a major problem in America. Millions of Americans suffer from lower back pain and on many occasions, they are left with a prescription for painkillers to get through the day. There needs to be a better way to treat lower back pain in Gig Harbor. Is there a better way?

Don't Just Treat The Symptoms of Lower Back Pain in Gig Harbor

When we ask our patients what they have done for the lower back pain, it’s usually a mirage of similar treatments. First, they start off with a course of over-the-counter pills, then they go to steroid injections and then they get some advanced imaging such as MRIs and CT scans to further diagnose the problem. After the thorough diagnosis you would assume they are going to go to the root cause… But it’s more painkillers and more pain injections like a steroid shots. This is the same pattern across the country.

Why do we do this in America, why do we not go to the root cause and fix the underlying issues?

We are one of the only countries in the world that market pharmaceuticals on TV. America and New Zealand are the only two countries in the world that have TV commercials at a whole new level. We are made to think that we need to pop a pill for every condition including lower back pain. Digestive issues, take a pill. Stress, take a pill. Pain, take a pill.

What's the Real Reason for Your Lower Back Pain?

The key is to go to the root cause of the problem. If it’s a disc problem, decompression therapy can help alleviate pressure off the disc. If it is a immobility issue, chiropractic can help with increasing mobility and decreasing inflammation in the joints. If it is a muscle problem, massage therapy can help with decreasing muscle spasms. If it is a healing problem, acupuncture can help by increasing your own bodies healing potential to the affected area.

The question American should be asking is, “what the underlying cause” and how can I address it. We should not be asking how I can get rid of the pain today and get through my day pain-free. We need to change the way we think and the way we confront our healthcare problems.

The next time you are in pain, ask your doctor about natural therapy such as chiropractic, acupuncture, massage and nutrition to help with chronic low back pain.
