There are many causes of back pain in New York. The most common causes are overuse, strain and injury to the muscles, disks and ligaments that support the spine. Once someone has done something to trigger back pain in New York, it is common for that person to move differently, in an attempt to avoid further back pain. The idea may be that if non-painful back muscles are used, the sore ones won't hurt as much. This natural strategy may actually lead to more pain in different places, as lesser used back muscles come into play. It may seem as if back pain in New York is an unending battle that cannot be won. This isn't entirely true.
If you are dealing with constant back pain in New York, you would be doing yourself a huge favor by consulting with Dr Valerie Alikakos. Dr Alikakos holds a BS degree from Saint Johns University and an MS degree in human nutrition from the University of Bridgeport, where she graduated summa cum laude. This is also where Dr Alikakos received her Doctor of Chiropractic degree. If you are not aware, a Doctor of Chiropractic, or DC, receives the same amount of schooling as a Medical Doctor, or MD. Whereas most medical doctors trained in the west are extremely devoted to peddling pharmaceuticals, a DC is more interested in treating the whole patient. When a person presents to Dr Alikakos with back pain in New York, she takes care to learn all about her patient. This holistic approach allows Dr Alikakos to advise her patient about lifestyle changes, stress reduction and nutrition.
Standard western medicine is quite often comprised of not much more than just a series of expensive prescription drugs. Some would suggest that standard western medicine is more concerned with prescribing than with actual healing. The human body is a remarkable machine, and when provided with healthful foods, clean air, good exercise and plenty of water, it is able to heal itself. The self-correcting capabilities of the human body are entirely amazing. Of course, there are times when the advice and treatment of a qualified doctor is, indeed, called for.
