Treatment in Midvale, Utah Without Pain Meds
by Dr. John Ratliff
An estimated four out of every five adults suffers from back pain at some point in their lives. People in Midvale with low back pain should understand that pain is often the tip of the iceberg, so to speak. The underlying cause of your low back pain is usually conceived in your posture or spinal alignment.
We now understand that when posture or alignment is poor, there is an increase in stress placed on vertebral discs and joints. This increased stress may initially result in occasional low back pain, but over time, the discs and joints are being damaged at an increasing rate.
Gravity and Other Stresses
Many people in Midvale are unaware that gravity and other stresses on their posture are causing, in many cases, serious damage to the spine. This damage may eventually result in chronic low back pain and disability.
Avoid Low Back Pain
Chiropractic adjustments, mirror image exercises and 2 way traction comprise an evidenced based treatment protocol which can significantly improve function and pain scores without Nsaids or pain meds. I encourage all people in Midvale and Utah to learn how to take care of their spine by getting a check up. Your check up begins with a postural examination, and x-rays if needed. Everyone in Midvale would like to avoid low back pain. Live your life with youthful vitality and better health with help from our team at Cottonwood Chiropractic and Spinal Rehab!
