Non Surgical Treatment for Back Pain

Non Surgical Treatment for Back Pain

Back pain is one of the most common health complaints we face as a country, affecting 8 out of 10 people at some point during their lives. The lower back is the area most often affected.

Back pain may go away on its own after a few days or weeks, however, that is unfortunately not always the case; back pain can become a chronic condition for many sufferers. Low-back pain can be debilitating, and significantly affect one’s quality of life.

At Chicago Sports and Spine, we see & treat patients in a variety of stages of back pain. Sometimes, surgery is the best solution to their ailments. However, oftentimes there are steps we can take to help them manage their pain and heal their bodies in ways that avoid surgery, while still providing relief and improving quality of life.

Prevent Pain with Morning Stretches

UPWARD STRETCH
Start by sitting in a comfortable cross-legged position on the floor or on a yoga mat. To get your blood flowing and wake your body after a night’s rest, lace your fingers together and raise your hands above your head. Make sure your palms face upward and you’re pushing the sky away from your body. It’s important you are sitting up straight and elongating your spine so you’re also feeling this stretch in your rib cage as well as your arms. Hold the pose for about 10 seconds or a few deep breaths and then repeat this pose leaning over to your left, and then your right.

NECK AND SHOULDER STRETCH
In the same cross-legged position, sitting up nice and tall, Let your ear fall right towards your shoulder and hold that pose for a few breaths. Then, let your head start to rotate down, dropping your chin into your chest and circling slowly until you’ve met back at your right shoulder. Reverse the circle stopping at your left shoulder for a few breaths then continuing around slowly until your ear is again over your left shoulder.
