Back Pain Treatment and Relief at Apex Chiropractic in Santa Monica
Back pain is very often caused by misalignments and nerve compressions. These nerve compressions result in pain and muscle tension in the back and can lead to sciatica (pain radiating down the leg).
Pharmaceuticals such as anti-inflammatory drugs, muscle relaxers, physical therapy and massages are commonly used to treat symptoms of back pain. These treatments might offer temporary relief because they focus on alleviating the pain. However, they only address the symptoms and they don't remedy what is causing the pain in the first place.
Chiropractic is the only form of healthcare that treats the underlying cause of back pain rather than the symptoms. If chiropractic care isn't part in the back pain treatment program, the symptoms of back pain often times return and in some cases are even more severe. If poor mechanics of the spine are ignored, degeneration of the spine will be accelerated and eventually turn to arthritis.
At Apex Chiropractic in Santa Monica, we focus on treating the cause of back pain and correcting any underlying problems. Our back pain specialist works with you to treat what is causing the symptoms of back pain to prevent them from coming back so you can benefit from long-lasting relief without any drugs or surgery.
