Do you suffer from back pain? You are not alone. Leading experts in the medical field estimate that as many as 80% of the population (yes that includes Edgewater , New Smyrna Beach, and Port Orange) will experience back pain at some point in their lives. In fact, back pain is the second leading reason for a visit to the doctor and one of the most common reasons for missing work.
When Back Pain Occurs
The lower back (lumbar spine) carries the weight of the head and torso, making it the most common site of pain. The increased weight load in this area can often times lead to injury and degeneration from wear and tear. In the upper back (thoracic spine), postural issues and fractures can occur as a result of age or osteoporosis.
Back Pain Treatment
Spinal braces are widely used by medical professionals to provide immediate and safe pain relief. A spinal brace will also allow the user to restore functional mobility. Functional mobility means you will be able to do the activities you enjoy again without pain! Other treatment options for back pain include therapy and trigger point injections. More invasive and less desirable treatments are medications, injections (close to the spinal cord), and surgery. It's important to consider the risks or side effects of each treatment option, including drug dependency. A back brace may be right for you.
