More than 95% of people will experience back pain in their life time. Back pain is one of the most frequent problems health care providers see, and one of the most difficult to treat using traditional methods. Back pain is one of the most common causes leading to opioid addiction and many are dealing with it on a regular basis. Additionally, it is the single leading cause of disability worldwide.
A careful screening interview with a qualified practitioner is conducted. This is an important step in making sure that you do not have acute back problems requiring immediate medical attention.
Back Pain is middle back (thoracic) and lower back pain (lumbar). The lumbar area is the most common area affected. Episodes of back pain may be acute or chronic depending on the duration. The pain may be characterized as a dull ache, shooting or piercing pain or a burning sensation. Discomfort can radiate into the legs and/or feet and may include numbness or weakness in the legs. Common underlying mechanisms include degenerative or traumatic changes to the discs and facets joints. These changes can then cause secondary pain in the muscles, nerves, bones, joints and extremities.
