Back Pain Treatments

No matter your lifestyle, you've probably experienced back pain at some time. While occasional back pain impacts most people (and therefore is generally not cause for alarm), it is essential to understand that back pain, in certain instances, can develop into persistent pain. If you are experiencing back pain - and live or work in and around the Upper East Side of New York, NY, Dr. David Salkin – as a chiropractor and licensed acupuncturist, can help identify and treat conditions causing pain and mobility issues that disrupt your daily life.  

Treating Spinal Issues That Create Back Pain

While many individuals experience back aches and pain simply due to natural age-related wear and tear, these symptoms may also originate from a prior injury.

Listed below are the most common back pain conditions an experienced NYC chiropractor and acupuncturist can help treat –

  • Disc Problems: The discs that cushion your spine's vertebrae can tear/herniate/deteriorate from trauma or the aging process.
  • Pinched Nerves: Displaced or swollen tissues compressing nerve roots where they emerge from the spinal cord.
  • Facet Joint Syndrome: This refers to the erosion of the lubricating cartilage between the spine's vertebrae, which causes bones to rub together.
  • Spinal/Foraminal Stenosis: When the spinal canal narrows, the nerves that travel that passageway can become compressed and cause extreme pain.
  • Soft Tissue Injuries: Damage to the muscles and tendons will cause them to become stiff and swollen.

Chiropractic Options to Ease Back Pain

Dr. Salkin provides these options for back pain relief –

  • Activator Adjustments.
  • Acupuncture.
  • Active Release Technique, and more.

Advantageous Lifestyle Adjustments

Lifestyle choices can help alleviate or reduce ongoing back pain –

  • Consider that food is medicine, which is why you are what you eat. Studies have verified that inflammation throughout the body is one of the root causes of many medical issues.
  • Give enough rest/sleep.
  • Manage stress to reduce the hormones that can cause painful muscle tightening.
  • Stay active – which helps with weight control and even depression.
