From dull persistent aches to sharp spikes of discomfort, back pain is all too familiar for many people. Over 65 million Americans will report suffering from it recently, and about 8 percent of all adults will experience chronic back pain at some point in their lives. You have two options: you can either try to ignore the pain day in and day out, or you can take the initiative in having it treated by calling Dr. Rozenberg for an appointment.

Why Does My Back Hurt?
Back pain can be acute and last no more than six weeks, or it can be chronic and continue over a matter of months. It can be linked to any number of conditions, including:
Muscles or ligaments that have become strained due to heavy lifting or sudden unexpected movements.
Spinal discs that have started to bulge or have become herniated.
Osteoarthritis in your lower back.
Skeletal irregularities such as scoliosis.
Osteoporosis (meaning the bones have become brittle).
What if I Ignore Back Pain?
You might think that you can live with chronic pain at first, but having to deal with the discomfort every single day can take a toll on your mental state; you might feel yourself losing your motivation, and you won’t be as interested in your favorite activities. If back pain causes you to change your posture, your muscles might grow weak, and you might suffer from additional problems such as spinal disc degeneration and back strain.
Possible Solutions for Back Pain
In many cases, back pain can be treated with spinal decompression therapy, which helps alleviate the pain of a bulging disc or other conditions. Depending on the cause and severity of your back pain, other treatments might be required. Possible solutions include laser therapy, acupuncture, cryotherapy, and electroanalgesia. We can also help you develop a plan for addressing your symptoms at home through stretching exercises and the use of heat pads and/or cold packs.
