Arthritis and Back Pain
Back pain is one of the most common chronic concerns. Degenerative osteoarthritis accounts for most of these cases and often involves the lower back (lumbosacral spine), degenerative discs, bulging discs and nerve impingement.
The pain can be localized to the lower back or may radiate down the leg. Conditions may be acute or lasting over decades. Pain medications may alleviate symptoms but often have adverse effects and fail to address the degeneration. Manual therapies and manipulations may be difficult for older adults, those with limited mobility and may irritate the very pain we are treating.
At Brio, we've found acupuncture and Low Level Laser Therapy to be a winning combination for degenerative discs and back pain.
Acupuncture helps to relieve pain by relieving deep tension in muscle and connective tissue. Patients often experience significantly less pain in only a few treatments.
Laser therapy decreases inflammation, stimulates tissue repair and reduces pain at the site of arthritis. In addition, treatments do not elicit pain so patients can relax and read a book during treatments!
Don't "live with" the pain any longer.
