Jacksonville Lower Back Pain Treatment
Lower back pain is something most people are familiar with and is the second most common neurological condition in the U.S. The cause may be degenerative or herniated disks, vertebral fractures, narrowed space around the spine resulting in pressure on the nerves, or just normal wear and tear on your body. Most incidences of low back pain subside within a couple of days; though others can last much longer and can possibly lead to more serious conditions.
Many people first turn to medications such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen in order to relieve their discomfort. That can work for a while but can also result in long-term damage if too many of these drugs are taken. Choosing stronger prescription medications for lower back pain can also cause health problems and can lead to addiction. Surgery is an option that many turn to, but this can be invasive and carries its own risks as well.
One of the most reliable treatments for lower back pain is chiropractic care from Beach Boulevard Chiropractic Massage Rehab in Jacksonville, Florida. Beach Boulevard stands out among other chiropractic providers in the area because of its whole health approach.
Improving the Overall Quality of Life
Things such as lifestyle choices and nutrition are also factors that play into the intensity of lower back pain and many other areas of discomfort that people feel every day. Too often, these factors are not addressed, or are only mentioned in passing. Because of this, the same pain keeps coming back, and there is little improvement to a person's overall quality of life. Our whole health philosophy for lower back pain, neck pain, headaches and various sports injuries empower you in your own treatment plan by suggesting various exercises you can do on your own.
Beach Boulevard Chiropractic is led by Jacksonville Chiropractor, Dr. Brian Winkler. He has built a strong reputation in the Jacksonville area largely because he takes the time to look at each patient as an individual, rather than a "vessel" for their pain. Dr. Winkler was a top student at Palmer College of Chiropractic and also has knowledge in microbiology.
Your treatment will start with an evaluation in order to see if your lower back pain is something that can or should be treated with chiropractic care. Often these treatments are beneficial, but are not always the best choice. If there are better options for your situation, Dr. Winkler will let you know, so you always have a treatment plan developed in your own best interest.
