Back pain is a very common condition affecting 80% of the population once in their lifetime. Most of the time the situation resolves on its own but when it doesn’t it can be debilitating and can really affect the quality of life for someone.
It can prevent and limit you from the activities that you love to do and even affect your family and loved ones. This can lead to the progression of the condition and even have a psychological impact such as depression. Seeing someone and getting educated on your condition is vital.
Most causes of back pain are mechanical in nature. What this means is that it may be caused by the discs, joints, or surrounding tissue. The good thing is that if diagnosed correctly it can be fixed and pain can be reduced along with increased functionality and mobility.

Back pain is a very common condition so you’re not alone. A lot of times, it’s inaccurately diagnosed and the condition is not fully resolved. Painkillers are not the answer either, as they cannot fix the mechanical nature of the back pain.
Currently, more and more people with pain are being addicted to opioid painkillers and their pain is becoming worst at the same time. It is vital that you see an expert, get properly diagnosed, and treat the mechanical dysfunction at its cause.
Conditions that we treat are:

MAKING AN APPOINTMENT
Lower back pain was something that I never had to deal with. That’s until I started my new job, which required me to stay at my work station for a large part of the day. The constant pain made even daily tasks exhausting and started affecting my quality of life. I searched the internet for treatment options, and that’s when I came across shockwave therapy. I scheduled an appointment at Divergent Health, and their experts assured me that the procedure was completely safe. It’s now been two months since the treatment and I couldn’t happier with the results!
