Top Myths About Back Pain

If you are living with back pain, then it’s time to stop believing the myths and start getting the treatment you need.

At Integrated Physical Medicine, we are dedicated to helping you find relief from your pain. We have helped many people find relief from their back pain, and the first step towards finding relief is to stop believing the myths about back pain. Here are a few of those myths:

Myth #1. You can protect your back at work by exchanging your office chair for a fitness ball.

While it’s true that fitness balls are great tools for strengthening your core, they don’t provide anything in the way of support. Also, the ball has to be the perfect size for you, and you must engage your core the entire time you sit on it in order to protect your spine.

Myth #2. Massage is always your best bet when you have back pain.

Don’t get us wrong, massage can be a great treatment option, however, not all back pain is made equal, and some pains require other treatment options. To find the best treatment option for you, schedule your appointment with our chiropractor in Evansville.

Myth #3. You’ll eventually need surgery to find back pain relief.

Luckily, this simply isn’t true. With alternative, noninvasive treatment options, such as spinal decompression or acupuncture, you may find relief from your back pain in a much more natural way. These kinds of treatment options even make it possible to discontinue the use of pain medication.

Schedule your appointment with Integrated Physical Medicine today to find relief from your back pain.
