Chronic low back pain affects many adults and can cause a great deal of discomfort. Pain can range from mild to severe, and depending on the severity, it can greatly impact your daily life. From tying your shoes to standing up from a seated position, even simple tasks can become difficult and painful.
Low back pain has several causes, including:
· Muscle or ligament strain from overuse or awkward movement. For example, this can happen after a day of moving, playing sports or simply lifting something improperly.
· Bulging or herniated discs. This can occur because of normal wear and tear or an injury.
· Arthritis. As the cartilage between joints slowly breaks down, it causes inflammation and pain.
If your pain is persistent, even after rest, and interferes with your day to day tasks, you are likely desperate for relief. Dr. Tharnish and our team help patients in Charleston alleviate pain naturally. Surgeries often come with weeks of recovery time and other risks, and the use of painkillers can potentially cause addiction issues. With our effective and safe treatments, there is little to no recovery time and patients can return to daily activities without issue.
We will perform a comprehensive exam to determine the best methods for treatment. Your treatment plan will be tailored specifically to you and may include spinal readjustments, spinal decompression or injections.
Our team at Charleston Pain Relief Center understands the impact low back pain can have on your life, and our goal is to help you relieve and manage your pain. We address pain at its source to expedite the healing process and get you feeling better quickly, without addictive medications or invasive surgery.
