#1 Most Costly Injury

Easily the #1 injury in terms of cost in the U.S. every year according to NCBI. While many of these injuries can be acute, it is also very common to be a chronic condition with episodes of pain-relief-pain over years. Unchecked lower back pain may lead to conditions such as sciatica, herniated discs, chronic pain, and can be very frustrating, debilitating, and expensive.

Evaluating the Cause

Evaluating the low back can be challenging, as many times the pain a person is feeling is not from a singular episode of injury, but rather a combination of many effects: Weight gain, poor posture, poor biomechanics, heavy lifting, twisting, overuse…. And the list goes on.

There are literally hundreds of types of care to deal with back pain, such as corrective exercise, pain creams, anti-inflammatories, invasive surgeries (spinal fusion, laminectomy, disc resection etc), physical therapy, massage, and chiropractic to name a few.

At Woodinville Sport + Spine we feel it is best to get the story behind the injury, taking a thorough exam, involving orthopedic testing, movement evaluation, and hands on palpation to determine the best type of therapy. Often there is a root cause, and the fix is not as easy as slapping some icy-hot on the ache, or getting a surgery to repair the damage. These are temporary solutions to a more complicated issue.

We use modern methods, using physical therapy, corrective exercise, chiropractic care, and movement retraining in order to get ahead of your pain, and to solve the underlying issues!
