Lower back pain is a leading cause of disability. It not only interferes with your quality of life, but also impacts work performance of the affected individual. What’s more, some cases of lower back pain are due to specific causes, and as a result, healthcare professionals remain unable to provide optimal pain relief to individuals who suffer from non-specific lower back pain. For such individuals, chiropractic care for back pain remains a viable treatment option.
At HealthFirst Spine & Wellness, we use a variety of chiropractic treatments to help our patients cope with the pain and get back to the activities they like to perform. In order to provide safe and effective treatment to patients, our chiropractors develop an individualized treatment plan that’s based on the underlying cause, the severity of the pain, and the overall health of the patient.
