Back Pain Treatment in Danville VA
CoreMedX Has Cracked the Code on Low Back Pain and Disc Related Pain!
While back pain can be defined as any type of pain that occurs from the top of your neck to the bottom of your spine; when most people mention back pain in Danville VA, they are talking about pain that occurs in the back near the waist and hips. Symptoms can be mild to severe and often limit the range of motion in the lower back while bending, lifting, and twisting.
Back pain is reported more often by women than men, and most people with back pain tend to be between the ages of 12 and 75. The average age for back pain patients is 43.5 years old but in a recent study, as many as 50% of the population had experienced at least one episode of back pain by their mid to late teen years. And eight out of ten adults will experience at least one bout of back pain in their life with as many as 30% having at least one episode every year.
There are many different types of back pain – from a dull, persistent low grade ache that is just mild all the way to sharp, sudden, stabbing pain that is completely debilitating.
Back pain is often not caused by any particular incident but can be triggered by activities such as lifting something heavy, falls or slips, or a motor vehicle accident. Even simple activities like gardening can irritate the back and when the pain starts, many times it just gets worse and worse over time.
Your risk for back pain rises as you get older, if you are in poor physical shape (sedentary), overweight, or work in a physically demanding job. Stress can also lead to bouts of back pain.
Most Common Causes Of Back Pain in Danville VA
Many people with back pain are experiencing mechanical problems involving the interaction of the muscles, nerves, and joints in their spine. The most common causes include degenerative, bulging, and herniated spinal discs, weakened and overly tight muscles, irritated or pinched nerves, joints that are not functioning properly, and sports injuries.
Because the spine is the foundational platform upon which the entire nervous system is built, these issues can lead to a variety of symptoms including low back pain, muscle spasms, sciatica, hip, knee and ankle pain, numbness and tingling of the lower extremities or feet, pelvic pain, and neuropathy.
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Treatment can be the Answer
Our doctors specialize in treating disc-related disorders and all the compensatory changes related to spinal disc disorders. Our doctors and medical professionals use natural, non-surgical techniques to restore and rehydrate ailing discs. We rarely use drugs and never use surgery to treat back pain. Instead, at CoreMedX we have developed a proprietary treatment for disc-related problems we call the DiscMedX Protocol and we rely exclusively on gentle, non-surgical spinal decompression, light manual therapy, stretching, and strengthening exercises, massage, and other holistic treatments to allow our patients to reach their fullest potential.
Non-surgical spinal decompression applies a logarithmic traction-based treatment regimen where the level of force can be directed to specific discs by changing the angulation of pull. The amount of poundage and the time of treatment is also varied for each person depending on the level of injury, body size, and whether they are having muscle spasms or not. This gentle therapy reduces disc bulging and herniation and relieves pressure on the joints, nerves, and muscles that cause most back pain. Many patients experience soothing relief with the very first treatment and it’s so gentle that as many as half of our patients can be found napping during their treatments.
Avoid Debilitating Back Surgery
Unlike other types of medicine, our disc doctors don’t simply address the symptoms of pain and discomfort. Instead, they work to fix the underlying cause of the pain and resolve the problem rather than simply masking it with drugs or using invasive surgical procedures that can take weeks or even months of recovery. Schedule a discovery visit with one of our professional medical staff today to find out if you are a candidate for the DiscMedX Protocol so you can quickly get your pain under control and return to your normal life and activities.
