Back Pain is the Sixth Most Common Health Condition among Adults in the United States, leaving Chiropractors as the First Line of Defense for the Physical Health of nearly
16 Million Adults.
As social distancing and mask restrictions are lifted, patients can stop wondering if their pain is even worth a visit to the chiropractor.
What the experts say
The U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security had deemed chiropractors as essential workers during this pandemic meaning many Americans were able to visit their chiropractor for back treatment during the pandemic.
Patients need to keep in mind, in light of restrictions being lifted, that they can now evaluate a visit to their chiropractor based on their medical condition. “A medical condition would be any type of pain radiating down to the legs, radiating from the source of origin,” said Mark Sanna, a chiropractor, and consultant at Foundation for Chiropractic Progress. “Any type of neurological deficit numbness cumulating into the extremities those could all be signs that there could be some nerve involvement. Individuals with back conditions like sciatica, muscle loss, or numbness should be scheduling in-person appointments with their chiropractor for treatment he says. In-person examinations are necessary because chiropractors need to determine what the cause of a pain is through the use of imaging, medical studies, x-ray and hands on manipulation.
