Lower back pain is one of the most common complaints a chiropractic clinic will treat. 84% of adults will experience lower back pain sometime in their life. This pain can decrease your quality of life by limiting what activities you can do and what activities you will have to avoid all together.
There may be a loss of income, disability issues and pain that causes mental fatigue. Low back pain is not limited to adults. Teenagers and children frequently experience lower back pain due to overuse (i.e. heavy backpacks) and strains/sprains from injuries caused by playing, falls and sports.
There are many causes of lower back pain. The lower back is comprised of bones, nerves, muscles, fascia, ligaments and tendons as well as a strong blood supply. These structures can be taxed by poor posture, overuse, pregnancy, weight, repetitive movements, injuries, prolonged sitting or standing in one place.
Chiropractic is a healthcare profession that is dedicated to non-surgical treatment of lower back pain. Many studies have concluded that manual therapy (adjustments) are effective for the treatment of lower back pain, as well as lumbar herniated disc with radiculopathy (leg pain) and sacroiliac/pelvic pain among other conditions.
Chiropractic care is less expensive than medical care. Chiropractic care is effective for patients with spinal degeneration. Chiropractic provided better pain relief with chiropractic adjustments than with medical care and the list goes on. Compared to most treatment options, chiropractic care is among the best!
