Seeking Treatment for Back Pain
Despite how common back pain is, it is crucial not to neglect your symptoms. Leaving your pain unattended can quickly develop into chronic issues that affect all aspects of your life. Symptoms of back pain may appear different for each patient, but commonly include:
- Pins-and-needles sensation
- Burning pain
- Stabbing pain
- Extreme weakness
Identifying your type of back pain is the first step on the path to recovery. Also consider lifestyle factors that may contribute to your pain. Common causes of back pain include:
- Pinched nerves
- Ruptured discs
- Sports injuries
- Prolonged sitting
- Prolonged physical labor
Whether your pain is newly developed or chronic, seeking care is the most responsible action to take for your body.
How Spinal Decompression Can Help
While there are many options for back pain treatment, Dr. Hattaway recommends spinal decompression for effective pain relief and lasting results. Spinal decompression incorporates a specialized device, called a traction table, to help gently stretch your spine. The traction table is operated by Dr. Hattaway, who will carefully guide the treatment according to your needs.
During spinal decompression treatment, the movement of the traction table alleviates pressure on discs and nerves. Additionally, it is highly beneficial for promoting circulation of nutrient-rich oxygen, water, and spinal fluid. This gentle stretching motion is perfectly suited for supporting pain recovery and promoting long-term mobility.
