Chronic pain is a well-known health issue that affects many individuals worldwide. According to the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, about 80 percent of Americans will experience back pain sometime throughout their lifetime. Chronic pain is a common reason for doctor office visits and it can occur due to a variety of health issues, including low back pain, sciatica or sciatic nerve pain, or piriformis syndrome. Common symptoms associated with chronic back pain can include, shooting or stabbing pain, muscle aches or soreness, as well as radiating pain and discomfort that can last for an extended period of time. Chronic pain can occur due to an automobile accident injury, work-related injury, sport-related 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. Chronic pain involves persistent symptoms. Individuals with chronic pain should visit a healthcare professional as soon as possible to diagnose and treat their health issues. Chiropractic care is a safe and effective, alternative treatment approach that uses spinal adjustments or manual manipulations to treat a variety of injuries and underlying conditions associated with the musculoskeletal and nervous system, including chronic pain and piriformis syndrome. 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 chronic pain and piriformis syndrome, among other well-known health issues. – Podcast Insight

I haven’t been able to sleep. Oh, yeah. I couldn’t even walk like I said. I couldn’t walk more than 20, 25 yards. It was really affecting me. I had to get some help.
