Dealing with Back Pain

If your low back pain is demanding attention, and you're sick and tired of the suffering, visiting this website and reading this article may be the most important thing you've done to improve your health and well being, ever.

You may have been told that if your back hurts, you should just decrease your activity, take ibuprofen and you’ll be fine. Whoever told you that, may not be the one you should be talking to.

Drugs only mask pain; they cannot cure your low back pain. Those over-the-counter pain relievers are not safe. Simple aspirin, if taken over a long period of time, can cause damage to your liver, kidneys, and stomach lining. Masking the pain just makes it easier to ignore. Its like ignoring the warning light on your car’s dashboard. Just because you’re ignoring it, doesn’t mean its not there. Masked pain keeps you from seeking to cure the underlying cause, such as postural problems or repetitive stress. Problems usually become progressively worse over time.

There is an abundance of high-quality scientific evidence that proves that chiropractic care for low back pain is more effective and less expensive than the “old school” method of masking the symptoms with drugs and rest. (To review this scientific evidence click here.)

The Chiropractic Clinic of Newberry offers safe, effective ways of treating both the life-dominating pain of a spinal injury or the debilitating and tiresome effects of long term, chronic low back pain. We offer new and unique solutions to correcting postural issues and other underlying causes of low back pain. Our goal is to empower our patients to Life Your Life and be active and vibrant, not lead a life of ever-decreasing activity in an effort to “run away from pain” by becoming less vital and active.
