back pain Overview

Each year, up to 65 million people grapple with back pain, making it one of the most prevalent sources of discomfort and a significant thief of joy. But you don’t have to accept this pain as a normal part of life. At Shorewood Elite Integrated Healthcare, we’re dedicated to helping you find relief and get back to the activities you love.

symptoms signaling a need for help:

  • Sharp, shooting, or stabbing sensations
  • Persistent aching or burning
  • Pain that radiates down the leg
  • Numbness or tingling, especially in extremities
  • Pain that worsens with movement, like lifting or twisting

understanding pain:

Back pain varies by duration and impact:

  • Acute Back Pain: Sudden onset, lasting a few days to weeks.
  • Subacute Back Pain: Appears suddenly or gradually, lasting up to 12 weeks.
  • Chronic Back Pain: Persistent pain, lasting over 12 weeks often disrupting daily life.

Common Causes of back pain

Back pain can be caused by your habits or routine, or by an accident or injury. Our chiropractic care effectively addresses all stages of back pain, whether acute, subacute, or chronic. Daily, we tackle different causes ensuring personalized treatment plans focusing on long-term relief and not just temporary fixes. Some of the most common causes of back pain we treat include:

disc herniation

In Shorewood, disc herniation is a common issue where the soft center of a spinal disc pushes through a tear in its tougher exterior. This can irritate nearby nerves, causing pain, numbness, or weakness primarily in the arms and legs. Without proper treatment, available at our Shorewood clinic, the pain and neurological symptoms can progressively worsen.

muscle or ligament strain

Many Shorewood residents experience muscle or ligament strain due to repeated heavy lifting and sudden or awkward movements. This strain can be exacerbated by a sedentary lifestyle or poor physical condition, leading to frequent or even constant back pain. Our local Shorewood clinic specializes in treating these common back issues.

spinal stenosis

Spinal stenosis, involving the narrowing of the spinal canal, frequently affects the lower back of adults in Shorewood. This condition can compress the spinal cord and nerves, causing pain and discomfort. Our Shorewood healthcare professionals are experienced in managing and treating spinal stenosis, helping you regain comfort and mobility.

degenerative disc disease

In Shorewood, degenerative disc disease is a prevalent condition that results from wear and tear on spinal discs, potentially due to aging, daily activities, sports, or injuries. Symptoms can range from mild discomfort to severe disability. Our clinic in Shorewood offers comprehensive treatments to alleviate pain and restore function.

Love Dr. Jesse!!!! He is compassionate, understanding, and flexible!!! I’ve been seeing him for over three years for my chronic upper back/neck pain and he knows exactly how to help you feel better fast. I recently moved and I still drove 30 minutes to see Dr. Jesse because my back has been really flared up for the last few days… After some time on the traction table and a few expert adjustments I can stand up straight again!! Thank you Dr. Jesse!!!!!

I am so very happy that I found Dr. Jesse Lang online! My husband was having some back pain and we have always used a natural approach to healing over conventional. Dr. Lang got to the root of his problem and felt better after his first visit. I too was having pain in my hip and started going for weekly visits and I feel so much better! Dr. Lang listens to all your concerns and helps to find the answers to alleviate your pain & discomfort. We always refer Dr. Lang to friends and family! Awesome!

Deb Hibben

Dr. Jesse Lang at Shorewood Elite Healthcare is the BEST! You will not be disappointed. I have many health issues and he has relieved so much of my pain. I was going to a pain Dr. and getting shots in my back, hip, leg with no success. Started going back to Dr. Jesse and with a few treatments feel so MUCH better. Plus he has a great personality, very upbeat, always a pleasure to be in his company.

Deborah Bucher

Love Dr. Jesse and staff! Always friendly and super accommodating! Dr. Jesse works hard to make sure you always leave feeling better than when you walked in. I never feel rushed, as he always takes the time to talk. He really gets to know his patients and treats them like family. As an added bonus, there are incredible massage chairs to sit in while you wait for your adjustment! I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

tips to Prevent Back Pain

An ounce of prevention may be worth a pound of cure

tip 1: stand tall

Maintaining good posture is essential to prevent back pain. Here are some key practices to incorporate:

  • Avoid Slouching: Ensure your head is aligned above your shoulders and your shoulders are aligned over your hips.
  • Footstool for Standing: When standing for long periods, rest one foot on a low footstool to lessen lower back strain. Alternate your feet regularly to balance the load.
  • Sitting Posture: Keep your feet flat on the ground, with your knees at a right angle, in line with or slightly higher than your hips.
  • Ergonomic Device Usage Bring your device up to eye level to avoid bending your neck downward.
tip 2: work smarter

Creating an ergonomic environment can significantly reduce the risk of back pain:

  • Supportive Seating: Choose a chair that supports your lower back, has armrests, and a swivel base to facilitate movement.
  • Proper Alignment: Ensure your knees are level with your hips; use a footrest if your feet do not comfortably reach the floor.
  • Frequent Position Changes: Shift your position at least every 30 minutes to prevent muscle stiffness and strain.
  • Smart Lifting: Avoid lifting heavy objects when possible. If lifting is necessary, use your legs to bear the load, keep your back straight, avoid twisting, and hold the item close to your body.
tip 3: stay active

Incorporating regular physical activity into your daily routine is crucial for preventing back pain:

  • Routine Exercise: Engage in activities that strengthen your back muscles and core, such as walking, swimming, or yoga.
  • Break up Long Periods of Inactivity: If your job involves prolonged sitting or standing, take short breaks to walk around or perform simple stretching exercises.
  • Strength Training: Include exercises that build lower back and abdominal muscle strength to provide better support for your spine.
  • Flexibility Routines: Practice stretching routines that enhance the flexibility of the spine and neck, reducing the likelihood of strains and injuries.
tip 4: sleep right

Sleeping posture can also affect back health:

  • Choose the Right Mattress: Opt for a mattress that supports the natural curve of your spine. Medium-firm mattresses often work well.
  • Sleeping Position: Try to sleep in a position that helps maintain the curve in your back (on your back or side). Avoid sleeping on your stomach.
  • Use a Supportive Pillow: A pillow that keeps your head aligned with your spine is best.
tip 5: fuel your spine

Maintaining proper hydration and nutrition is vital for supporting a healthy back:

  • Stay Hydrated: Keeping your body hydrated helps maintain the elasticity and fluidity of the tissues and joints in your spine. Aim to drink at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water every day, more if you are active or it’s hot outside.
  • Boost Calcium and Vitamin D Intake: Strong bones are crucial for a healthy spine. Ensure you consume adequate amounts of calcium and vitamin D:
  • Eat Calcium-Rich Foods: Include dairy products, leafy greens, and fortified cereals in your diet.
  • Ensure Adequate Vitamin D: Get your vitamin D from exposure to sunlight, eating fatty fish like salmon, or through fortified foods and supplements.
  • Consultation for Supplements: If you’re unsure about your dietary intake, consider discussing calcium and vitamin D supplements with your healthcare provider. Or purchase high-quality supplements that provide the best band for your buck using our online supplement shop.
