Joint and back pain can be debilitating, often preventing sufferers from continuing to lead their rich and active lives. If you can’t remember the last time you climbed a flight of stairs without discomfort or woke up free from pain, our team at Unison is here for you. Through a customized treatment plan combining eastern and western medicine, we’ll deliver profound pain relief – so you can enjoy your life once again.
I’d been suffering from back spasms for several years with limited relief from the pain. At Dr. Jacobs’ suggestion, I began to combine acupuncture with my medication. Within weeks I was feeling better than I had in years. I’m so grateful that I found Unison and listened to Dr. Jacobs advice, because it truly changed my life.
What causes joint and back pain?
A number of conditions and medical problems can cause joint and back pain to develop. For example, a common cause of joint pain is arthritis, which is essentially inflammation of the joint. The pain can range from mild to severe, and typically worsens with activity. Back pain, on the other hand, may be caused by repeated strains, disk damage, arthritis and structural abnormalities involving the spine.
A holistic approach to Joint and Back Pain Relief
When you arrive at Unison to undergo treatment for joint and back pain, our first course of action will involve eliminating the discomfort, so you can quickly reclaim your quality of life. To that end, we will combine eastern and western approaches, prescribing powerful pain relief medications and/or anti-inflammatory injections, along with alternative treatments.
Our Los Angeles patients can be assured that we exclusively recommend evidence-based alternative therapies.
For example, yoga and tai chi are known to improve joint and back pain by strengthening your muscles, improving your balance and promoting weight loss, so we will likely recommend those exercises. In addition, a healthy diet can reduce overall inflammation in the body, so there’s a strong chance that we’ll also counsel you on your nutrition. Acupuncture is another incredible treatment for joint and back pain, and can drastically lessen the severity of your discomfort when used correctly. And finally, certain supplements are proven to be extremely effective in treating the underlying causes of joint and back pain, ensuring profound and long-term pain relief.
Once we’ve successfully relieved your pain, we’ll help you target the underlying cause of your discomfort so you can prevent the problem from developing again. If your pain occurred as the result of an injury, we’ll teach you how to stretch, lift and strengthen your body to prevent these types of injuries from recurring. If your pain is chronic and the result of arthritis, Dr. Jacobs can help you treat your condition on an ongoing basis to provide long-term relief and reduce flare-ups. Depending on the severity of your arthritis, we may recommend a custom combination of traditional medications, herbal remedies, alternative supplements, physical therapy, exercise and massage to prevent arthritis pain from interfering with your daily life.
