Looking to manage symptoms and reduce pain?

Here are some things to avoid with degenerative disc disease.

 

As we get older, it’s very common for our bodies to start showing their age. However, for those living with degenerative disc disease, this process generally happens earlier—and causes more pain.

If you’ve recently been diagnosed with disc degeneration, you’re probably wondering what to expect. In this guide, we’ll talk about some things to avoid with degenerative disc disease as well as steps you can take to slow the progression of this condition.

Pain and stiffness are never a welcome feeling.

Here’s what to do if you’ve thrown out your back.

 

“Help! I threw out my back!”

It’s something that many chiropractors (including Oviedo Chiropractic) hear from patients. And while back pain is one of the most common complaints among adults, it’s also a signal that something is drastically wrong.

After all, pain is never “normal.”

Yet even though back problems become more common as you age, that doesn’t mean you have to sit (or lie) back and take it. There is a way to both treat and prevent back pain so you can get back to the things you enjoy.

Do you feel sore and achy after a day on the course?

If you’re suffering from lower back pain, golf could be to blame.

 

With more courses than any other state, it’s no wonder that—when it comes to golf—Florida is #1. But in addition to hosting multiple PGA Tour events (and countless 19th holes), Florida also boasts a lot of lower back pain from golf.

Lower back pain is an extremely common complaint, accounting for up to 50% of all golf injuries, and affects novices and professionals alike.

If you’ve found that your game is being handicapped by your lower back pain, there’s no need to give up your favorite sport. With the right care, you can reduce your risk of injury so you can keep playing golf as long as you want.

Back and neck pain should always be taken seriously.

Here’s why you should see a chiropractor first for bulging disc pain.

 

Most people have come to accept that a few aches and pains are a normal part of the aging process—especially pains in the back and neck. As a result, they tend to pop a few Tylenol and go about their daily routine as best as they can.

While the “take-two-of-these-and-call-me-in-the-morning” method may work fine for a minor muscle strain, it isn’t enough to treat a bulging disc.

In order to get to the root of this injury, you need to see a chiropractor for bulging disc pain.

Tylenol, Aspirin, Advil…what is the best for back pain relief?

As it turns out, the best pain reliever for back pain isn’t what you’d expect.

 

Your spine is incredible. It’s responsible for bearing your weight, protecting your spinal cord, holding your ribs in place to protect your heart and lungs, and remaining flexible enough to allow you to move.

But most people don’t give their spines a second thought…unless, that is, they’re feeling back pain.

An estimated 80% of people will experience back pain at some point in their lives. And most of those people will turn to an over-the-counter (OTC) pain medication for quick relief.

What is the best pain reliever for back pain? And are medications really the best option?
