If you watch too much television or have paid a visit recently to a family medical doctor for low back pain, the information you’re getting may be a flawed. For example, you’ve probably been told that back problems are not very serious and that the problem is quickly cured with simple treatments, such as going back to work or taking an aspirin.
The reality is far different. Few studies show that taking pills does any good at all. More importantly, medications tend to mask mechanical problems of the back. When these problems are ignored or improperly treated, it’s only a matter of time before a minor sprain turns into a disc herniation, and eventual degeneration or arthritis.
At Desired Health Chiropractic we are here to help the Anoka, Ramsey, & Coon Rapids community with back pain or herniated discs. Our chiropractic treatments involve spinal adjustments, which are designed to correct the misalignments of your low back vertebrae, and improve the range of motion of the individual spinal joints. Your back muscles will become more relaxed and less painful if the joint is not irritated through improper position or excessive motion.
Our clinic is different, we examine to find the cause of your pain, and then provide a treatment plan that can get you back to enjoying your activities with maximum function. If you suffer from back pain or a herniated disc, then give our chiropractic clinic in Anoka a call to ask any questions before you begin treatment.
