Are You Struggling with Crippling Neck and Back Pain?

Did you know that as many as 80% of Americans suffer from severe back pain? In fact, it is one of the top reasons for sick days and missed work, and it is the most common cause for work related disability. Bad backs and chronic aches are keeping people out of work, and interfering with our day to day lives. How are more Americans getting relief from persistent back pain?

Knowing the Source of the Pain

The human body is complicated, and the back is no exception. The back is packed full of bones, joints, ligaments, and muscle. Patients with chronic back pain should consult a spine doctor to get to the root of the problem. Back pain can have any number of causes from degenerative disc disease, or regular aging processes, to a herniated disc. It is not uncommon for patients to suffer from a herniated disc in their back, or a herniated disc in neck regions. These discs put pressure on important nerves, causing numbness, weakness, or pain.

Treatment

Once patients know the source of the problem doctors can recommend treatments, whether it is finding a chiropractor or getting spine surgeries. For example, patients with persistent neck pain are seeking posterior cervical fusion surgery. The surgery is minimally invasive, and fuses bones together to protect the neck and spine against further injury.

Do not tolerate unnecessary neck and back pain. Whether you need a chiropractor, or posterior cervical fusion surgery, it is time to see a doctor, so you can get back to work, and enjoy your day to day life without suffering from crippling pain.

    i have no trouble believing that 80% of people have back pain. there’s not a single person I’ve talked to who hasn’t had back pain at one time, what I want to know is where are these lucky 20%? Who doesn’t have back pain, and how are they doing it?

    I feel your “pain” commentator above! I’m assuming maybe the “20%” just don’t have back pain that’s bad enough to complain about. After all, almost any activities (heck, even sitting down or standing up the wrong way) can cause back pain. they’re not immune. :)
