Back Pain Relief Q & A

Better Body Solutions

What causes back pain?

Back pain is a common condition and some of the most common causes of back pain include osteoporosis, arthritis, defects in the skeleton, bulging or ruptured intervertebral discs, and muscle strains. Some patients may also experience back pain because of chronic conditions, such as fibromyalgia. Back pain frequently occurs as men and women age. But, back pain can affect younger individuals as well as a result of injuries and diseases. Many people experience back pain due to chronic conditions, such as fibromyalgia.

What treatments are available?

A number of treatments can be beneficial to patients with back pain. Better Body Solutions offers chiropractic care, physical therapy, and massage therapy to patients. Chiropractic care can improve back pain by addressing any issues with alignment that may be contributing to the issue. Physical therapy helps with back pain by allowing the patient to increase strength and stability in the area, which reduces the risk of everyday injuries and strains that make pain worse. In addition, massage therapy can improve blood flow to the back and loosen stiff muscles and connective tissues, thus alleviating pain.

In many cases, Dr. Giraldo will recommend multiple types of therapy for patients with back pain. These treatments work together to provide the patient with better results.


How effective is back pain treatment?

Back pain is a complex issue. While some patients will notice immediate effects after beginning treatment, others will need to participate in multiple treatment sessions before the effects will be noticeable. Some patients are able to recover from back pain completely, while others will need to continue long-term treatment.

What can patients do for back pain at home?

Patients can reduce back pain at home with various conservative therapies, including over-the-counter pain relievers, ice, heat, and rest. Dr. Giraldo may also prescribe certain exercises that the patient can perform at home to support physical therapy in the office. Patients should talk to Dr. Giraldo for more details about what they can do to safely deal with pain between treatment sessions.
