Queens Back Pain: Non-invasive, Non-Surgical
Approach To Pain Relief

Chronic back pain is a syndrome that afflicts millions of Americans each year, but effective and lasting treatments are available. Studies have shown that 75-85% of people will experience back issues at some point in their lives, and many who have one episode will have a second or recurring episode within one year. A visit to Dr. James Lee's Spine Center in central Queens, New York will put you on the path to recovery from your back pain ailments through a combination of rehabilitation and chiropractic sessions.

Back pain is such a prevalent affliction that the costs associated with diagnosing and treating it run to about $50 billion annually. It is also one of the main reasons for missed work, and the second most popular reason people visit their doctor-second only to upper respiratory infections. Back injuries not only cost the country billions of dollars in missed work hours and treatment, but it is miserable for the sufferer. With our approach to healing back pain through chiropractic care and sessions with our Queens chiropractor, you can finally find relief.

Back Pain - A Typical Result from Car Accident Injury and Personal Injury.

Back problems can stem from a variety of sources, and often involves an existing tenderness or weakness in your spinal tissue that is triggered from a sudden movement or lifting/ moving a heavy object. What laid dormant as a weak spot is then triggered into an episode of acute pain. Chronic back pain can also be caused by some of the following injuries, ailments and disorders:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Bulging discs
  • Herniated discs
  • Degeneration of spinal discs
  • Narrowing of the spinal canal (spinal stenosis)
  • Improper posture
  • Strain/tears to muscles/ligaments supporting the spine
  • Osteoporosis
  • Poor alignment of the vertabre
  • Scoliosis and other spinal curvature disorders

This is not a comprehensive list, but if you suffer from any of the above back issues, a visit to our Queens chiropractor will diagnose and treat the source of the problem. A traditional medical practitioner will often prescribe drug therapy as a method of pain relief, but this only masks the problem. If you have back tenderness due to arthritis, and old injury or even something as simple as poor posture, pain medication will only set you up for a life of dependency.

You may be at particular risk for back ailments if you work in construction or other manual types of professions, if you are overweight, are pregnant, suffer from arthritis or osteoporosis. Dr. Lee will treat your acute pain through a variety of chiropractortreatments, chiropractic care, corrective exercises, ice therapy, neuromuscular re-education, and nutrition counseling.
