The American Chiropractors Association estimates that up to 31 million Americans experience issues with neck and back pain each year. Between over-the-counter measures and even the best insurances offering only short-term treatments, sufferers of neck and back pain often go years before reaching a breaking point and seeking new solutions. We talked to Don, a resident of Orlando, Florida, about his experiences with neck and back pain.
"Sit up straight" something we have all heard at least once in our life, but how important could this little piece of advice really be? Very. The positioning of your spine is an extremely influential factor when it comes to the health of your neck and back. Poor posture can create abnormal spine alignment and result in years of problems.
Irma was a disastrous hurricane and many people have been left without internet, power, and maybe even their homes. We know that this is a very difficult time as everyone recovers from Irma's devastation and want to make sure that all our patients are safe and getting the treatment they need. That's why we are now open again following the hurricane and are ready to treat what afflicts you.
Surgery, the one word that either scares people away, or is what they believe they need to cure their debilitating back or neck pain. Surgery is not always the answer and should be considered a last resort. At Deuk Spine Institute our goal is to get a patient out of pain, not force them to undergo expensive surgical procedures that may not be right for them. We believe that every patient deserves freedom from pain as soon as possible by offering patients the treatment that is best for their condition.
