Chiropractors Make Some of the Best Physical Therapists in Fort Lauderdale
Here’s some information from the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS), on back pain:
- Acute pain is the most common type of back pain and lasts no longer than six weeks.
- Chronic pain can come on quickly or slowly and lasts a long time, generally longer than three months.
- And in efforts to help relieve the pain, many people reach for over-the-counter anti-inflammatory drugs or apply hot or cold packs, and when that doesn’t work, they go for prescription drugs.
An excellent option is physical therapy, with modalities that focus on prevention and management of injuries or disabilities. Research shows that physical therapy definitely helps.
