Back Pain is a serious problem in the US, which affects 80% of Americans at some point in their lives. Although back pain can be temporary, a more persistent back pain is referred to as chronic pain.
Chronic back pain can be very debilitating and can really put stress on your everyday life. Some people complain that their chronic back pain keeps them from their favorite activities. In some cases, people have such little mobility due to their chronic back pain, that they rarely leave the house.
Often, people suffering from chronic back pain are limited to medications and physical therapy. Today, more and more people are realizing that they can get relief by seeing a pain specialist. Pain specialists are very educated in the cause and source of chronic back pain. The pain specialist can offer a range of non-invasive treatments that help mitigate the back pain and minimize a patient’s dependency on medication.
If you think you may be suffering from chronic back pain, call The Franklin Pain and Wellness Center to schedule an evaluation. A pain specialist will listen to your situation, evaluate your condition and recommend the best course of action for your specific back pain.
