Back PainAnyone living with back pain is familiar with how debilitating it can be. The physical and psychological effects of suffering with this all too common ailment can severely disrupt productivity and lessen quality of life. Low and midback pain can be caused by a wide variety of factors such as a herniated disc, pinched nerves, inflamed muscles, postural weakness, arthritis, or repetitive stress.
Symptoms of back pain affect the entire body, causing weakness and pain in the extremities, poor circulation, gastrointestinal difficulties, and muscle spasms. Even seemingly unrelated conditions, such as menstrual pain, sexual dysfunction, and urinary difficulties, can be traced to spinal compression and misalignment.
Most traditional approaches involve invasive surgery that is largely unnecessary and shown to be ineffective in more than 50% of cases. Commonly prescribed narcotics simply deal with the symptoms of your pain, and can lead to dangerous side effects, worsening your pain over time.
