Treatment for Back Pain, Neck Pain and Headaches in Lone Tree, CO
In a recent survey of 45,601 Consumer Reports subscribers, hands-on treatments such as chiropractic and deep tissue massage dominated the lists of helpful alternative treatments for back pain, neck pain and osteoarthritis. A total of 30,332 survey respondents overwhelmingly indicated manual medicine and manipulative therapy to be more effective for back pain and neck pain than any other treatment, including over-the-counter medication, prescription medication and up to 17 other alternative therapies. The results were published in the September 2011 edition of Consumer Reports magazine.
Ironically, only 36% of respondents had used chiropractic, whereas 38% tried prescription medication and 58% tried over-the-counter medication. The drug companies have done a great job marketing, haven’t they? At The Center for Spine, Sport & Physical Medicine in Lone Tree we are dreaming of the day where the best therapies are used the most. We think evidence suggests that an approach that includes chiropractic care works best. So will keep educating!
Most back, neck and headache pain resolves on its own in a month or two. However, when the pain is not resolving– or when it is getting worse or you’re needing immediate relief– it is to your benefit to seek out skilled manipulative therapy now, not later. If you are having progressive weakness, numbness, a change in bowel or bladder function, or leg muscle atrophy, don’t wait for us to examine you. Call now: (303) 290-8342, or request an appointment right here, online.
Further, if you are experiencing back or neck pain associated with recent trauma you should be examined right away to expedite an accurate diagnosis. Our multi-specialty clinic will competently provide that to you.
A sports injury, a car accident, sleeping wrong, hormonal imbalances or structural spinal problems can cause or perpetuate your back pain, neck pain or chronic headaches.
Often the solution is as easy as making a simple correction to the spinal joints or posture to alleviate the muscle tension causing the pain. You may require massage, acupuncture, or a specific stretching regimen combined with cardiovascular exercise. Or you require simple techniques to overcome ischemic tension myalgia, myofascial trigger points, or an underlying jaw (TMJ) problem. When necessary we may recommend homeopathic trigger point injections to help you get your life back faster. You may discover that our specialized rehabilitative exercise protocols are just the thing you need to overcome your pain completely. For example, a forward head posture can perpetuate neck muscle tension and pain. Postural exercises that strengthen the neck muscles and pull the shoulders into alignment afford lasting relief of chronic headache pain that medications could not touch.
Whatever the cause in your case, the starting point is a complete examination and a correct diagnosis. Our award-winning care is effective because we have the tools to help you get the most rapid, lasting pain relief possible!
