Back pain is one of the number one reasons people go to a Doctor accounting for 24 million Doctor visits a year.
Most common causes of low back pain:
- Muscle injuries
- Degenerative changes
- Herniated or slipped disc
- Spinal stenosis
- Spinal instability
The June 2017 issue of Consumer Reports cites research that says that for most low back pain the use of opioid medication and surgery is not indicated or necessary but rather recommends the use of conservative treatment such as Physical Therapy and Chiropractic as a first line of treatment.
Performance Plus has been combining Chiropractic care and Physical Therapy for the treatment of back pain for years and has successfully treated thousands of patients with back pain in the northwest Missouri region.
The requirements for a healthy spinal joint are these:
