Today, Allegheny Medical remains committed to providing expert and compassionate care as one of Pittsburgh's premiere health care facilities. Their team of physicians and health care professionals has been successfully treating chronic back pain for over twenty-five years, and they continue to be dedicated to offering relief to those affected by this modern epidemic.
Unfortunately, the blessing of modern life comes with a downside: too little time to exercise, too much sitting down, and too much stress. The result is a near epidemic of back problems in recent times. While many individuals may not always find time for the daily exercise that keeps their backs strong, many others who do try to stay active end up overdoing it playing weekend athlete or gardener, or trying to keep up in an exercise class.
Another cause of back pain is poor posture and alignment, which can put strain on the muscles and ligaments of the back and force the vertebrae joints to carry more weight than they should. The results are pain and extra wear and tear on the spine.
In order to stay strong and flexible, spines need daily attention. However, many people contend with constant muscle tension due to sitting for long hours at a desk or behind the wheel, or simply as a result of stress--all of which spell back trouble. In fact, the majority of people in the United States will experience lower back pain at least one time during their lives--and back pain is one of the most common reasons people see a doctor or miss work.
Regardless of the cause, a back strengthened by regular moderate exercise is less likely to be injured. Allegheny Medical can help those who suffer with back pain by designing personalized treatment plans based on the individual's health needs and concerns. Strength and flexibility in the back must be built up gradually, and doing too much too soon can often cause muscle strain. The physicians and health care professionals at Allegheny Medical can diagnose and treat patients who are experiencing back pain and injury and get them safely back on the road to healing and recovery.
