Peak Medical Offers Relief from Lower Back Pain

August 07, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
Low back pain can cut careers short, interfere with your favorite recreation activities and make daily life almost unbearable. Nearly 31 million Americans suffer from low back pain and they spend more than $50 billion on treatment for it each year. For low back pain sufferers in NJ, physical therapy clinics like Peak Medical can help alleviate that pain efficiently and cost effectively.

Low back pain has a number of causes. As we grow older, the strength of our bones and our muscle tone and elasticity diminishes, and our discs also become more rigid and become less effective in cushioning our vertebrae. This deterioration makes it easier to sustain injuries that cause lower back pain.

Muscle irritation or bone lesions are frequent causes of low back pain, but degenerative conditions such as arthritis or osteoporosis can also cause this condition. How you sleep can also result in low back pain, as poor sleep position can increase pressure on your back. Smoking, obesity, bad posture and poor physical fitness can also contribute to low back pain.

Regardless of the cause of your lower back problems, pain management clinics in N.J. can offer you relief from the persistent discomfort caused by low back pain. Depending on your individual symptoms and condition, New Jersey pain management doctors at Peak Medical can alleviate your pain and have you back enjoying life again.

Our doctors can provide a number of services, including:

  • Physical therapy Professional NJ physical therapy staff at Peak Medical can help guide you through exercises and movements that will strengthen your muscles and help you stave off low back pain.
  • Spinal decompression Non-surgical spinal decompression is a form of traction that helps stretch the back and has been found to be effective in mitigating back pain. Spinal decompression takes pressure off of discs and nerves, reducing pain and discomfort.
