Do You Make These 5 Mistakes With Your Neck & Back Pain?

If you are like the majority of people who suffer from neck and back pain, there is an excellent chance that you have made one or more of the following common mistakes:

Mistake #1: Overloading your body with pain pills and cortisone shots.

Many neck and back pain sufferers don’t realize that taking pain pills and cortisone shots will do nothing for the actual cause of their problem (and can have serious and unhealthy side effects). If your pain persists for more than a couple of weeks, then it is probably more than just a simple ache or muscle strain.

Mistake #2: Thinking about having surgery.

Surgery may be an option, but just remember that there are always risks involved, including nerve damage, blood clots, and infection.  Many spine surgeries fail to give ANY significant pain relief, and many patients report WORSE pain after surgery. Spine surgery typically costs over $100,000. Surgery should be a last resort, after everything else has been tried.

Mistake #3: Avoiding a chiropractor.

While traditional chiropractic methods are very safe and effective, some people feel uncomfortable getting treated by a chiropractor.   Fortunately, there is now an alternative method.

Mistake # 4: Just living with the pain, or hoping it will 'just go away'…

Chances are you don’t have to live with your pain. Many neck and back pain conditions can be corrected, but they usually need more than just pain pills and cortisone shots. While some conditions can’t be cured, there are safe, gentle, and effective means of reducing or eliminating your pain.

Mistake #5: Not getting evaluated by the right type of Doctor for your condition.

Most doctors do not know how to properly treat neck and back pain. They will usually give you pain pills or cortisone shots, even though they are well aware that medication is only a cover-up. Pills do nothing to fix the actual problem, but they simply do not know what else to do. You need to choose a doctor that routinely deals with neck and back problems, and knows how to fix them.
