At some point, an estimated 4 out of 5 people will experience back pain.
For some it will be mild, with only occasional flare ups, for others the pain can be chronic and excruciating, limiting the ability to work and enjoy life.
Whether mild or severe, if you experience neck pain or back pain, it should be addressed to prevent degeneration, arthritis, pinched nerves, and development of scar tissue — all problems that could impair the quality of your life.
When treating back pain, if you choose the traditional route, you’ll probably be prescribed medication and you might even face surgery. But studies show most Americans would prefer a drug-free option. Not surprising, is it? Particularly since pain medications can impair motor function and slow down thought processes. And frequently, they can have unpleasant side-effects.
For those people who want to break free from pain pills and would like to avoid surgery, chiropractic treatment could be the answer. With proper care it’s possible to restore joint health and stop the degenerative processes.
As a Garland chiropractor, Dr. Mixon begins by making simple, minor adjustments to the back to bring the spine into alignment. When the spine is properly aligned, the nervous system and spine begin to communicate effectively. This can bring about positive changes in a wide range of conditions.
In addition to decreased neck and back pain, many of Dr Mixon’s Garland chiropractic patients have experienced dramatic improvements in conditions like asthma, high blood pressure, migraines, headaches, carpal tunnel and TMJ pain. As an added bonus, most patients experience more flexibility and range of motion!
