Did you know that thousands of people every day take time off from work because of back pain? In many such cases, the doctors and specialists have simply prescribed long term pain medication because they cannot find an underlying problem. The issue here is that sometimes, a specialist can only see a limited number of diagnoses! In fact, sometimes it is better to see one of the many orthopedic specialists in Murray, Utah, rather than be pushed here, there, and everywhere else trying to get a solid diagnosis!

How Can a Specialist Help You with Your Back?
Orthopedic specialists have a great deal of knowledge about the biomechanics of the spine and how it relates to surrounding nerves, muscles, and connective tissues. Quite often, back aches and pains are related to other areas of the body that are out of alignment or not in good physical shape. This can place undue pressure and strain on the back, causing aches, pains, and general discomfort.
The specialist will put together a custom program, often including:
• Massage therapy
• Stretching exercises
• Strength building exercises
• Body-weight supported exercises
If you are suffering in silence with your back pain, your best choice might be to book an appointment with a local orthopedist.
