Press Release Summary: Back pain is a widespread problem in the United States.
Chiropractic offers exciting opportunities to patients seeking a solution to their
back pain.

Press Release Body: Back pain can be one of the most debilitating injuries to the
body because the back is used in virtually every movement you make. It is also one
of the most common reasons for a visit to a physician. According to the American
Chiropractic Association, as many as 80% of the population will experience a back

Americans have back pain symptoms.

role in mobility. \"There are many causes of back pain, but many times it occurs from
a strain of the back muscles and ligaments. Some other common causes include:
ruptured disks, joint irritation, obesity, arthritis, and even stress,\" said Dr.

There are ways to prevent back pain before it starts. Maintaining a healthy
lifestyle is perhaps the most effective method of prevention. This includes a good
diet, exercise, daily stretching, walking and sitting with correct posture, and
sleeping on a mattress that minimizes curving of the spine.

Dr. Karakasis recommends medical care if back pain symptoms do not show improvement
after two to four days. Also, he warns that while pain medication may provide short
term temporary relief, it is not the solution to the problem. He said, \"Many times
patients will take pain medication instead of seeking care and end up prolonging or
even worsening their injury. Treatment should really be sought to properly diagnose
the cause of back pain and to more effectively treat it.\"

More and more medical professionals are referring patients to chiropractors for
treatment and diagnosis of back pain. Chiropractic can treat back pain by using

manipulation reduces pain, decreases medication, and rapidly advances physical
