Every year in recognition of National Doctor’s Day, the Chattanooga-Hamilton County Medical Society asks the community to nominate their favorite doctor to be recognized for the exceptional work they do. From the numerous letters they receive, an independent committee chooses 10 honorees. We are proud to congratulate our own Dr. Brett Sanders, whom was recently honored for his commitment to providing compassionate health care to the patients he serves.
Back pain: In the United States, it’s the second most common reason for adults to make a doctor’s appointment. Researchers estimate that at least 80% of people will experience some form of back pain over their lifetimes. In fact, many things can go wrong when it comes to our spines, so it’s important to know exactly what kind of physical therapy exercises and upper or lower back rehabilitation you might need after an injury.
Back pain can vary depending on the type of injury or condition a patient has suffered from. There isn’t only one segment of the population affected by back pain — anyone from professional athletes in peak physical condition to senior citizens with arthritis could experience problems with the spine, bones, and muscles of the back. To make matters more complicated, there isn’t only one treatment for back pain; a sufferer could be referred to a chiropractor, a sports medicine clinic, or even spinal surgery specialists in extreme cases.
