If you’re suffering from back pain in St. Louis, there is a great option for treatment. A common complaint which affects about 31 million Americans is low back pain. This can stem from a variety of causes. It is often caused by a pulled muscle or damaged disc, but can also result from a trauma like an accident or injury, or even something simple like lifting or bending incorrectly. If you’re looking for a clinic where a comprehensive diagnostic assessment is performed on each patient, in order to determine the root cause of lower back pain, so that the correct course of treatment can be ascertained for each unique case you’ll find that and more at St. Louis Medical Center.
Back pain relief has traditionally been provided using treatment that includes rest, hot and cold packs, pain medication, muscle relaxants, and massage therapy. Sometimes, however, these low back pain treatments fail and leave the patient to struggle under chronic low back pain. When the pain becomes unbearable, a last resort is sometimes surgery. This often leads to Failed Back Surgery Syndrome, with many patients reporting a reoccurrence or even worsening of symptoms within a year or two of the surgery.
Spinal decompression, an innovative and rather new medical procedure, takes the grinding pressure off your discs, vertebrae and nerves so they have a chance to recover and heal. Part of our treatment includes chiropractic care though the use of gentle, gradual mechanical traction to accomplish this. Patients lie on a decompression table and the table does the work. We have total control over the amount of traction used in any given session.
