Joint Pain

It is common to experience back pain, neck pain or discomfort at some point in the day. Poor posture, a lifetime of minor microtraumas, toxins, and many other things will create a proper function to be lost.

Pain is a direct result of compressed nerves and a weakening of the discs and muscles surrounding the spine. If these aches and pains are left untreated, muscle spasms and increasing pain may occur. If left untreated for a long enough period of time, nerves can eventually die which may lead to more serious consequences.

The Facts About Back Pain

The epidemic of back pain is enormous. It’s the leading reason for disability for people under the age of 45 and estimated to strike 90% of all American adults.
Some statistics that will help you understand the severity behind back pain, and what can happen when it goes untreated.

  • 6.5 million people are in bed on any given day due to back pain.
  • 5.4 million Americans are disabled annually due to back pain.
  • An estimated 93 million workdays are lost per year due to back pain.

The cost of treatment for back pain in America has soared to an estimated $45- 54 billion per year. This number does not include the decrease in quality of life and the years back pain can steal from individuals that suffer from pain.

Our primary focus of care at Atlantic Coast Physical Medicine will be to restore the normal alignment of joints throughout the body while strengthening the muscles around these joints to help stabilize and heal the instability within these areas. This form of treatment proves to be highly effective in resolving pain and regaining function to your everyday life activities.
