According to the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, approximately 80 percent of people in the United States will experience back pain sometime throughout their lifetime. Back pain is one of the most common reasons for doctor office visits and it can, unfortunately, occur due to a variety of health issues. Common symptoms associated with back pain can include, shooting or stabbing pain, muscle aches or soreness, as well as radiating pain and discomfort. Back pain can occur due to an automobile accident injury, work-related injury, sports injury, slip-and-fall accident or due to an underlying condition, such as ligament or muscle strain, bulging or herniated disks, osteoporosis, or arthritis, among other health issues. The majority of back pain cases will improve gradually on their own with home treatment and self-care, however, is your back pain persists, make sure to seek immediate medical attention. Chiropractic care is a safe and effective, alternative treatment approach that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of injuries and underlying conditions associated with the musculoskeletal and nervous system, including back pain. Dr. Alex Jimenez, a chiropractor in El Paso, Tx, uses spinal adjustments and manual manipulations to carefully restore any spinal misalignments, or subluxations, caused by injuries or underlying conditions that may ultimately result in back pain, among other health issues. – Podcast Insight
[00:00:12] My name is Aracely Pisana. I’m 42 years old, I’ve suffered from back pain for quite a few years. My name is George Lara. I got disabled. So that’s why I don’t work anymore. I hurt my back. A herniated disc. It has affected me for quite a while. I used to not be able sometimes to get out of bed. Now, I can say that I can lift things that are a little bit more heavy. I used to always have to have my kids go to the store with me because I couldn’t lift anything more than five pounds.
[00:00:45] Before I came here, I wasn’t having much of a life. There was a sciatic nerve and I had DDD. Degenerative disc disease. And so your back goes out a lot more than, you know, regular. So it’s hard to have a regular life. No, I had already seeked other chiropractor help before. And nothing had really worked until I started seeing Dr. Jimenez. And the way he cares about his patients that is what keeps bringing me back. It’s like you get into bed and sometimes you wake up in the middle of the night with really severe pain and so you don’t sleep much. Oh yes. Everybody and anybody that needs any type of pain relief. Good. I feel a big difference this time on the treatment and the program. Of course. I tell everybody. And even when my friends tell me they have a sore back, go talk to him.
