Back Pain

Understanding Back Pain

Back pain is a common ailment that affects a large portion of the population at some point in their lives. It can manifest as a dull ache, sharp pain, or even a burning sensation. Causes can range from basic muscle strain to more serious conditions such as herniated discs, osteoarthritis, or spinal stenosis.

Causes of Back Pain

The causes of back pain are numerous and often complex. They can include physical factors such as poor posture, lifting heavy objects improperly, or being overweight. We use the PBM to decrease the inflammation and irritation within the back that is often the source of the person's discomfort.

Treatment Options at Sheen Vein & Cosmetics

At Sheen Vein & Cosmetics, we offer a range of treatment options for back pain, done by using Photobiomodulation. PBM uses light therapy to activate the body's own healing mechanisms which in turn help to accelerate the healing process while also decreasing the inflammation associated with the injured tissue. This in itself decreases the discomfort many people experience with the injury.

Preventative Measures

Prevention is always better than cure. Regular exercise, maintaining a healthy weight, and practicing good posture can significantly reduce the likelihood of developing back pain. Sheen Vein & Cosmetics also offers guidance on lifestyle modifications that can help prevent back pain, as part of a holistic approach to patient wellness.
