Chronic back pain — pain that lasts longer than three months — is disruptive to your life and uncomfortable to say the least. You are also likely to develop other symptoms, such as depression, fear of an additional injury, and anxiety. Back pain in NYC can also keep you from participating in activities you enjoy – but you do not have to live this way. A visit to Living Well Medical allows one of our chiropractors to treat your back condition using manual therapies, relieving your pain and the associated symptoms. You can rest assured you are in the right place; our chiropractors are experts in spine rehabilitation.
Many people with chronic back pain turn to opiate pain relievers, which might work to relieve pain but are not ideal as your only long-term solution. Pain relievers only mask your pain, rather than dealing with the underlying cause. Quite simply, the long-term use of opiates usually does not improve your ability to function. Spinal manipulation, a non-invasive option, is a superior alternative to alleviate back pain. That being said, we do have a medical doctor on staff who is able to prescribe medications if your treatment team determines that medication could be of value for the immediate future.
Chiropractic is also a safe and effective treatment for acute lower back pain—pain that lasts no more than six weeks -- when performed by a trained and licensed practitioner at Living Well Medical. Acute back pain might occur from lifting a heavy object or from being tackled when roughhousing or playing sports. Acute back pain in NYC may go away on its own, but if your pain persists, spinal manipulation therapy from a New York chiropractor usually helps.
Back pain is one of the most common complaints we get from patients. Therapies used by chiropractors are generally effective for treatment of lower back pain; after treatment by one of our New York chiropractors, you should have improved functionality and a restored range of motion in your back. We also have a physical therapist on-site – so your trip to Living Well Medical gives you access to a range of wellness care in the space place.
