Early Chiropractic care for low back and neck pain
Once again I find myself thinking and writing about early care for injuries. If you have recently injured your neck or low back you have many choices for treatment. A recent study showed that most people go to over the counter drugs (OTC’s) and were disappointed in the outcome. The next most popular choice for care was a general practitioner (GP) the outcome was viewed as ok for this. The next choice in popularity was chiropractic and this care had the best outcome of the three.
One big reason for why most patients have favorable view of their chiropractor is our direction of care. We get you moving fast and return you back to your normal life quickly. If you have low back pain or neck pain that has just begun the chiropractic experience (education on stretching, use of ice, how to lift, how to sleep, what exercises to do, life modification, and the chiropractic adjustment) can help you get back to normal quickly and get out of pain quickly.
On the contrary if you have neck or low back pain and choose the “wait until it gets better approach,” you will probably still end up at a chiropractor but you will say what I have heard thousands of times over the past 18 years, “I thought my low back pain would get better by itself, but it got worse.”
My name is Dr. Greg Beasley and I am a Chiropractor in Everett Wa. If you are reading this you probably are looking for a Chiropractor. It would be my privilege to sit and talk with you about your back pain and help you determine a course of treatment to return you back to your normal life style as soon as possible.
