Back Pain Q&A

What is back pain?

Back pain is one of the main reasons people come to Focused Pain Relief for osteopathic pain relief. It can include deep muscular aches, sharp stabbing pains, or even radiating pain that goes down one or both legs (sciatica).

Acute back pain starts suddenly and continues for six weeks or less, and chronic back pain lasts for longer than three months. 

What causes back pain?

Some of the most common causes of back pain include:

  • Structural imbalances
  • Bulging disc
  • Herniated disc
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Structural imbalance
  • Muscle strains
  • Arthritis 
  • Osteoporosis 

These are only some of the common reasons you may experience back pain. Come to Focused Pain Relief for an accurate diagnosis and treatment help.

How is back pain treated?

Many doctors still prescribe opioids for back pain. These habit-forming drugs cause an average of 16,000 deaths in America per year. 

But medical evidence doesn’t support the use of opioids for chronic back pain. Focused Pain Relief takes a nonopioid, noninvasive, and nonsurgical approach because it’s safer and more effective.

Osteopathic medicine

As an osteopathic physician, Dr. Foreit has extensive specialized training in manual (hands-on) techniques that can correct underlying causes of back pain. He uses osteopathic manipulation treatment to correct structural imbalances, boost circulation, and ultimately ease your pain. 

Spinal decompression

Focused Pain Relief offers DRX9000® True Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression® treatments, an advanced nonsurgical solution for back pain caused by issues like herniated discs, bulging discs, degenerative disc disease, nerve entrapment, and posterior facet syndrome. 

The advanced spinal decompression system uses state-of-the-art technology to gently separate the vertebrae in your spine. This releases trapped or compressed nerve roots and allows discs to move back to their proper place between your vertebrae. 

Spinal decompression also creates negative pressure in your spine, allowing blood, nutrients, and oxygen to flow around the injured or worn-down spine.
