No one should live with chronic back pain.
Whether your back pain is the result of a sports injury, an auto accident, or other unexplained condition, the health care professionals at Burghealth Physical Medicine can properly diagnose and treat your back pain using a wide variety of advanced care solutions using responsible pain management.
Why do I have back pain?
Aside from an obvious accident or injury, there are many causes of back pain – many of which are often improperly diagnosed. Finding the root cause of the pain is the first step in treating it, and our experienced team will do just that. Some of the more common causes of back pain include:
- Back strain or pulled back
- Herniated/ bulged/ slipped disc
- Arthritis management
- Facet joint pain
- Rib pain
- Poor posture
- Pulled muscle/ muscle spasm
- Sciatica/ radicular leg or buttock pain
- Chronic pain
- Restricted range of motion
What are the symptoms of a back condition?
Widespread and local back pain is the most common indication of a back issue. However, other concerning symptoms may present themselves as well, some of which include:
- Sciatica pain down one or both of your legs
- Pain relief only after changing positions
- Numbness or weakness in one of both of your legs
- Tingling in your back, buttocks, feet, or legs
- Chronic sharp shooting or dull pain in your back
If any of these symptoms cause major lifestyle changes, such as missing work or social events, a lack of sleep, or an interruption in your daily activities, contact Burghealth Physical Medicine right away. The sooner you book, the quicker the recovery!
How is back pain treated at Burghealth Physical Medicine?
At Burghealth Physical Medicine, we take pride in providing responsible pain management services. Your customized treatment plan will be based on your specific diagnosis and may include one or more of the following advanced care services:
Chiropractic Care & Techniques: Utilizing state-of-the-art chiropractic techniques, our experienced team provides a level of care that is safer, more comfortable, and more effective than ever before. We have a proven track record of success in relieving patients of back pain that find relief from back pain that has originated from the spine and extremities, and our services far exceed the average spinal adjustment. We believe in a whole-body approach to healing, and therefore, include lifestyle advice and nutritional counseling as part of a comprehensive pain relief strategy.
Active Release Technique (ART): Active Release Technique (ART) is a patented, state-of-the-art soft tissue system/ movement-based massage technique that permanently treats back primarily caused by overused muscles. At each ART session, your provider will use his or her hands to evaluate the texture, tightness, and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. All detected abnormalities are treated with specific movements using precisely directed tension.
Deep Tissue Laser: Clinically proven as an effective treatment for pain and inflammation, deep tissue laser therapy offers relief without invasive surgery or addictive medications. The treatment uses focused light to stimulate photobiomodulation (PBM) – a process that triggers biological events resulting in increased cellular metabolism, reduced occurrence of muscle spasms, improved circulation to injured tissues, and less pain.
Power Plate Whole Body Vibration: Power Plate is an advanced, multi-purpose medical device that uses whole-body vibration technology to manage a variety of conditions, enhance sports performance, and provide natural pain relief. The treatment uses a patented PrecisionWave™ Technology to activate the body’s natural reflexive response – a powerful occurrence that causes a rapid increase in blood flow and engages muscles in a consistent and controlled manner.
