Treating Back Pain

The spine absorbs nearly every bump, jolt and shock sent its way. It simultaneously provides an incredible amount of agility and flexibility. Excess weight and poor muscle tone commonly contribute to back pain. Poor posture also stresses the natural curves of your back.

Finding relief from chronic back pain is possible with the many treatment options available. Treatment from a multidisciplinary team, like the Northern Nevada Medical Center’s Pain Management Center, can be a first step.
