Yes, back pain can be cured. Back pain can significantly impact your quality of life. A Harvard Special Health Report claims that 80 percent of people will suffer from back pain during their lifetime. This type of pain can be debilitating and often occurs as the result of an accident, strain, aging or overuse. Sometimes age is to blame for the pain.
When you reach middle age, you are more likely to have back problems. The discs in your spine wear out. These discs perform as cushions that separate the bones. When they become fragmented, pain follows. Car and sports accidents cause a tremendous number of back injuries. Specifically, whiplash is a major problem caused by the jolt of a car accident. This pain can be excruciating and require immediate treatment. Another painful condition that can occur is sciatica which is a herniated disc.
This happens when a disc puts pressure on a nerve. The nerve affected is often the sciatic nerve. Symptoms of the condition include pain that follows the nerve into the buttocks and sometimes runs down into your legs. Scoliosis presents a different type of back problem for many people. Research indicates that the cause of this condition actually originates in the brain causing terrible posture that contributes to discomfort. Even though you can remind yourself to simply stand up straight, you are likely to fall back into the poor posture causing your pain when you aren’t constantly thinking about it.

Acupuncture This Chinese technique is a proven technique that has been used for centuries to treat back pain, neck pain and headaches resulting from injuries and accidents. While this treatment is often used to treat accident victims, it has also been beneficial for treating people with other chronic conditions. Hair-thin needles are inserted strategically at acupoints which are believed to unblock energy and relieve pain. After the treatment, patients report feeling energized and relaxed. VIBE Vibration Therapy As the name suggests, vibration therapy uses vibration frequencies repeated over and over again to eliminate or ease painful back pain symptoms.
The way it works is that you stand on a platform that vibrates your spine tissues. This action has many positive health benefits including improved circulation, joint health, and flexibility which in turn decreases pain. Cupping Therapy While cupping therapy might sound like something new to most Americans, this therapy is not new. It has been practiced in Egypt and China since as early as 1000 BC. The way this therapy works is that suction cups are strategically placed on the body to encourage increased blood flow which reduces pain.
The suction created with the cups also relaxes tight muscles and drains toxins. Graston Technique This technique is used to treat soft tissue health problems. It can be used for neck pain, back pain, and shoulder pain. This procedure lessens the pain associated with scar tissue. This is a non-invasive medical treatment that employs the usage of stainless steel tools to identify and treat the negative symptoms associated with soft tissue fibrosis or ongoing inflammation. Dry Needling Dry Needling uses a very delicate acupuncture needle to ease or relax knotted muscles. Patients are amazed at the relief they experience often having been disappointed with other strategies.
If you have areas of the body that feel like knots that are a source of pain, then Dry Needling may be your answer. Dry Needling is used for the purpose of healing muscles after injury or overexertion. In a stressful world where many people spend far too much time in front of a computer screen, this type of treatment can produce miracles, relieving stress in your shoulders, back or neck. Much of the success of this treatment is attributed to the fact that the needle can treat deep into the muscle. There is no reason to suffer with pain. We can help you cure your back pain.
