It is estimated that 600,000 Americans have back surgery every year. A lot of back surgeries happen because people injure themselves, get a quick fix, don’t replace bad movements and posture, injure themselves again, and then continue through the cycle until they have no other options left.
If this is describing you, STOP! You have other options! If you have even started a portion of this cycle, listen up before you set yourself up for expensive and painful surgery.
We all injure ourselves, it happens. However, after you get the injury fixed, what do you do?
1.) Do you go back to everyday life, moving and grooving in the same pattens you were before you threw out your back or pinched and nerve in your neck?
2.) Do you go back and figure out what movement you did to injure yourself, learn how to do the movement correctly, and then strengthen the muscles around the injured area to prevent re-injury?
If you fall into category 2, you’re doing great! If scenario #1 sounds a little more like you, we can help. Advanced Wellness Center uses a unique set of technologies to help target your pain areas, tissues, and injuries to recover the right way. We will go over your history, previous scans, test results, modalities, and much more in order to give you the best possibility for a pain-free future.
Just like if you blew out your knee you would go to a physical therapist, after a back or neck injury you need to strengthen those muscles back to normal to stay away from pain pills and off of the operating table! We help our patients learn everyday about the differences between immediate care and wellness care we offer.
