Do you or someone you know suffer from lower back pain?
… Because 80% of people suffer from it at some point in their life. It is estimated that lower back pain affects more than half of the adult population each year and more than 10% of all people experience frequent bouts of low back pain.
The lower back is a very susceptible part of the spine.
When healthy and functioning correctly the lower back can withstand tremendous forces without injury. However if it is out of alignment or has weakened supporting muscles something as simple as bending down can cause low back injury. Back pain probably will not heal on its own, pain may go away temporarily but it will probably return. Low back pain requires chiropractic care.
Causes of Low Back Pain
There are many different conditions that can result in low back pain, including: sprained ligaments, strained muscles, ruptured discs, trigger points, and inflamed joints. Most people understand how a sports injury can result in pain but sometimes even picking up something that you dropped on the floor can cause low back pain. In addition, arthritis, poor posture, obesity, psychological stress, kidney stones, kidney infections, blood clots, or bone loss can lead to pain.
Other common causes include:
- Disc herniation
- Sprains, strains and spasms (weekend warrior syndrome)
Fortunately, chiropractic treatments for low back pain are usually pretty straightforward. Chiropractic adjustments and therapy often take care of the situation.
Chiropractic adjustments for low back pain have been repeatedly shown to be the most effective treatment for low back pain. Many major studies have shown that chiropractic care is more effective, cheaper and has better long-term outcomes than any other treatment.
