Pain in your body is enough to be both debilitating and discouraging. Not only can it get worse over time with age, injury, and stress, but the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) also states that back pain is now starting at younger ages than previously reported.1 Nowadays, there are plenty of acute and chronic symptoms that can emerge from the daily and long-term stresses on our back and spine. Of course, our back is involved in most of our movements, and it’s almost expected that it will undergo excessive stresses at some point.
In addition, the spine is so central to the nervous system that it even controls parts of the body like our gastrointestinal system and our mood! 3 Even so, some of our symptoms might be hard to pinpoint or be attributed to any one cause.
Thankfully, our chiropractors in Coeur d’Alene here at Thrive are highly trained to perform a diagnostic exam in order to pinpoint and diagnose pain and other symptoms. Doctors Jeff and Chelsea employ a wellness-centered approach in addition to their chiropractic techniques to relieve your pain.
