How to Treat Neck Pain (https://goo.gl/z25xtE)

Neck pain is very common today, as people tend to be hunched over their computers and smartphones all day long. Suffering from chronic neck pain is painful and not good for your health. There are a number of tests that can be performed to see what the origin of your discomfort is. This includes an MRI, CT scan, or x-rays. Your daily habits will also be discussed with your doctor to see if what you're doing is causing it. This could be from poor body mechanics or an injury.

Sometimes the solution is as simple as changing your lifestyle habits so you have better posture at work or home. Sitting at a desk all day can cause neck pain if your computer isn't set up correctly or your chair isn't at the right height. If you come home and slouch on the couch while staring at your phone for hours, that won't help either. We'll look at factors like this to see what we can do to change.

5 Signs Your Back Pain Might Signal A More Serious Problem (https://goo.gl/9L35MG)

Back pain is very common, as over half the population has it at some point in their lives. Often it's nothing to be worried about, as you might have twisted your back in a strange way and pulled a muscle. It usually gets better on its own in this case. Sometimes massage, yoga, or exercise can help you feel better without even having to see a doctor.

There are times where you need to be alarmed when you have back pain, such as losing control of your bowels or bladders. This could be due to cauda equina syndrome, a very rare syndrome which affects the nerves in the lumbar spine. They become compressed and cut off all movement and sensation. This will require immediate surgery when diagnosed.

Having back pain only at night may be another sign you need to make an appointment with your doctor. If the pain doesn't start until you fall asleep, or it's impossible to find a comfortable position, it could be a spinal tumor. This will also need to be treated right away.

7 Things Your Back Pain Is Trying To Tell You (https://goo.gl/T1qvk2)

You may think that back pain only comes from an injury, but there can be many other reasons. Stress is a big influencer in those who have back pain. Being stressed tightens up the muscles in the back, and that tightness can translate into pain. If you're anxious, that can also lead to increased back pain and even back spasms.

Being addicted to technology is one of the top causes of back pain as well. When you're hunched over your phone or laptop all day, it can cause pain in the upper back. When working on your computer, try to avoid having it in your lap. Instead, set your work station up correctly so your eyes are at the right height for your laptop. Take breaks from being on your phone, and hold it in front of you instead of down below when possible. This will decrease the tightness in the muscles and shoulder, as well as decrease eye strain.

6 Things Chiropractors Can Help With--And What They Can't (https://goo.gl/X5ocrN)

It's thought that you should only see your chiropractor if you're having neck or back pain, but they're able to help with dozens of other health conditions. Chiropractors need years of experience and schooling before they can treat, so they have a wide range of knowledge.

While back pain is a common complaint they treat, pregnancy pain is something they can greatly help with. Women tend to have low back pain or sciatica due to their pelvis being improperly aligned, so chiropractors can help correct this and reduce their symptoms. Studies have even shown that those who get treated by a chiropractor when they're pregnant have less of a chance of having intense back pain when they're giving birth.

However, there are some issues that they can't treat. These include infections, broken bones, injuries that need surgery to fix, and acute emergencies. It's best to see a doctor or head to urgent care for those.

Having a Herniated Disk in the Lower Back (https://goo.gl/9YoXEv)

Ruptured or slipped disks typically occur in the lower back. It's one of the most common reasons for leg pain and low back pain. Over half the population will suffer from low back pain at some point in their lives. Many people will have one due to a herniated disk. While it can be very painful, nonsurgical treatment can work wonders in reducing their symptoms.

The spine is made up of 24 bones, which are connected to create a canal where the spinal cord goes through. Nerves send messages between your muscles and brain through your spinal cord. The disks are between your vertebrae and are flexible. They're made up of a soft interior and hard exterior. When a disk gets injured, the soft portion of the disk can push out into the outside. This can cause painful symptoms with movement or rest. Pain can sometimes shot down the leg as well, which is a condition called sciatica.

6 Tips to Prevent Back Pain
(https://goo.gl/ubY5ws)

You may have back pain due to a car accident or falling. These are traumatic experiences, but often the reason for pain is due to daily activities. One of the best ways to prevent back pain is by exercising. When you're not strong, you're less likely to use your core and leg muscles during movements. Even lifting your child from their crib can hurt your back if you're deconditioned. Moving every day will keep your joints fluid and prevent your muscles from getting tight.

What Are the Advantages of Electrical Muscle Stimulation Therapy?

We use electrical muscle stimulation therapy at Icon Medical Centers for many reasons. Normal physical therapy exercises may leave a patient feeling too weak or sore after repeated exercises. EMS therapy won't make you feel like that so you can go on with your day without feeling fatigued or worn down. Electrical muscle stimulation is also better than regular medicines, which can make you feel loopy and tired. Instead of feeling in a daze, you'll feel alert and be on your way once the session is over.

Is Massage Good for You, or Does It Just Feel Nice?

At the Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre, a study found that getting a Swedish massage for 45 minutes resulted in patients having an increased white blood cell count, thus boosting the immune system. This can be beneficial if you feel you're getting sick or are around people who are sick. The stronger your immune system is, the less chance you have of getting what everyone else has.
