Mild back pain may just seem like a minor annoyance. Perhaps it only hurts when you bend over to pick things up and seek low back relief. If you are like many people, it may seem easier to ignore this type of pain, use over the counter pain killers to manage their pain, or simply hope that the issue resolves by itself.
Unfortunately, failing to get to the bottom of back pain can often result in the issue getting worse over time. Issues like degenerative disc disease or sciatica are unlikely to self-resolve, so it is the best course of action to get the cause of your back pain diagnosed and treated as soon as possible. Some of the treatment options that may be appropriate in your case include the following:
- Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy – If you are suffering from back pain that is the result of problems with the discs in your spine, you may be a candidate for non-surgical spinal decompression therapy. This type of treatment involves being strapped into a motorized table that gently stretches your spine, creating negative pressure in your discs which can promote healing.
- Chiropractic Manipulation – Many cases of back pain can be treated with chiropractic manipulations, which involves adjustments to the joints in your back. Chiropractic treatment us used to improve joint health and mobility, reduce nerve irritability, and improving range of motion.
- Class IV Laser Treatment – Class IV laser treatment uses specific wavelengths of light to stimulate cell function and healing. This type of treatment is painless and increases circulation to the area of injury, reducing issues like inflammation, swelling, muscle spasms, pain, and stiffness.
