Chronic Back Pain: We Have a Drug-Free Solutions

For many people, back pain is a short-term condition, and you feel better within days or weeks. However, not everyone is so lucky. According to Georgetown University, 16 million adults in the United States experience chronic back pain, which not only affects physical health, but also emotional, social, and financial health as well.

Prescription pain medication isn’t a long-term solution for chronic back pain. At Back to Life Integrated Medicine in Lakewood, California, our medical professionals offer advanced, state-of-the-art techniques and technology that focus on healing the underlying cause of your chronic back pain so you can reduce your need for pain medication or eliminate it altogether. 

Knowing the cause of your chronic pain

Your back is a complex system of joints, muscles, ligaments, discs, and nerves that support much of the weight of your upper body. Though your chronic back pain may develop from several causes, in most cases, the pain occurs because of a mechanical problem related to one or more of the many parts that make up your back and spine. 

Identifying the root cause of your lower back pain is essential for getting the most effective treatment. At Back to Life Integrated Medicine, we conduct comprehensive evaluations that include diagnostic testing, such as X-rays, nerve studies, and MRIs, to find the source of your pain.

We also take into consideration the many factors that contribute to chronic back pain, such as your occupation, your lifestyle habits, and your weight.  

Drug-free solutions to chronic back pain

Once we understand the underlying cause of your chronic back pain, we develop individualized treatment plans to promote healing and help you get your life back. Our holistic drug-free solutions to chronic back pain include:

Chiropractic adjustments

To improve alignment, relieve pinched nerves, and promote healing of damaged tissue, we offer chiropractic adjustments. In addition to alleviating your pain to reduce your reliance on medication, our gentle spinal manipulation also supports other therapies to help you get the relief you need sooner.  

Physical therapy

Exercise may be the furthest thing from your mind when you’re suffering from chronic back pain, but bedrest and limiting mobility worsens pain and your overall health. A physical therapy program designed just for you relaxes your tight muscles, alleviates back and joint pain, and restores mobility. 

Massage therapy

Massage therapy has been used by many cultures as a tool to alleviate pain. We use several massage therapy techniques specific to your needs to reduce chronic back pain, lower your stress levels, and promote healing.
