If you ignore a problem in your back, it often times goes away on its own. Sometimes you can get through a episode of pain with over the counter medications and rest. So you'd think. If the underlying cause of the pain is never treated, the back problem is sure to arise again, only the next time it might be a little worse and last a while longer.
Over time, any problem in the spine is bound to return until you take the necessary action to correct the problem and actually heal. A chiropractor is a back pain specialist that will properly diagnose your condition and determine the true cause of your pain, without just covering the symptoms you are having.
Pain from sciatica, disc herniations, facet syndrome, subluxation, and spinal stenosis all involve the spine and nervous system. This pain is your body's way of communicating with you that something is wrong, and it is unnatural to allow your body to stay in pain without getting it corrected.
How can this be avoided or fixed? Simple... Visit your chiropractor to find out what the underlying cause of the pain is. A good chiropractor will be able to diagnose your condition, alleviate your pain, fix the problem, and get you spine healthy once again. And if it is not a chiropractic problem, then your doctor should refer you to someone who can help correct the problem.
Don't assume that your back will always be a problem in life, and that it is something you will just have to deal with it. Pain is unnatural, and chiropractic is the natural solution to the underlying condition causing your pain. Without proper chiropractic treatment, your back pain will not heal and often get worse and lead to more serious conditions later on in life. So don't wait, see your chiropractor today!
